|Just got back from 2 back-to-back Maui trips.|
Special thanks to Paz Durham for putting us up in grand style...
Surf and photo missions at Honolua Bay and Big Beach.
Other surf spots we hit included Flemings, Old Airport beach, DigMe, Paia Bay and Baldwins..
Hiked through the Bamboo Forest...
Lots of images captured...and soulful enjoyment!!
Can't wait to get back...
|A while back, we were very happy to start providing comprehensive photography service to Angela Aurelio, photographer/owner at Angelaaurelio.com .|
Angela is an amazing photographer, who specializes in food photography -amongst other genre..
She is from Las Vegas, and has recently re-located to our area.
Santa Cruz welcomes Angela..!
Angela will be shooting again soon at SCMPS, but this time it will be at our Victorian Home location..
Thank you, Angela!

|SCMPS has been producing Author Events at the Capitola Book Cafe, in Capitola, CA.|
This weeks recordings include:
John Martel, author of the best selling "American Lawyer".
Ann Packer, author of the near and dear "My Bookstore"
Rick "Frosty" Hesson, author of "Making Mavericks" -a book based on the making of the film "Chasing Mavericks". The book also discusses the relationship between Frosty and his young protoge, Jay Moriarity.
Frosty is the real-life inspiration for Gerard Butler's character in the film...
Some of the events were test-streamed at Ustream. Go to: http://www.ustream.tv/user/SCMPS
The Archives will be placed on our new Vimeo Pro account -details to come...
|We just wanted to wish our friends, Jerry and Thais, all the best. They are an amazing and striking father/daughter team from Santa Cruz, who have just entered to be casted in CBS' "The Amazing Race". Were keeping our fingers crossed! XX
|Today "Team" SCMPS' hit the Scott's Valley Skatepark from 1:30-4pm, for a well deserved long lunch break.|
It turned out to be an amazing, humid, pre-rain session...! Great(small) croud. Saw that some old friends are back in town.
Now were back to finishing out the work day...
So, the weather is starting to call us:) Spring Fever?!
Long, warm days ahead for the week.
Whisps of high-altitude clouds to diffuse the sun just a bit -great for pictures!
Going down to Pono Hawaiian Grille to shoot a mini-doc and commercial piece over the next few days...
But then what about the afternoons?? Going to have to surf I guess...;)
It's not going to be huge out, but the hot weather and mid-day high tides will be welcomed...
|So we have soft released the site, for cross-browser and device bench-testing..|
So far, it looks consistant between Internet Explorer (v.5x and v.8) Firefox 3.6.28 and Safari 5...
It seems that Safari 5 is the browser with the fastest page load...:)
IE v.5x had only minor glitches with font' background colors...
The site has been authored on a Mac through a Main Monitor with screen rez @ 1280 x1024.
The Mac and Windows PC machines also have reference monitors set to 1024x768 screen rez.
iPad 1 with Safari fares nicely too.
3G is slow at first, with DSL being decent across all platforms.
(Comcast cable high-speed not tested yet, but should be fat enought to load all pages fast.)
Sites with XGA and VGA resolutions clip the header a bit and you need to scroll to see the whole page.
That is unless you can zoom the page out some:)
So far, so good!
|Today the Website is nearly complete -for all intenets and purposes.|
Film and Video reels are coming soon, and those will be the icing on the cake..
It's cool to have a place locally that supports film and video in it's various formats..
-And of course, support for just about any type of production..
The Forum topics are going to be a lot of fun.
It'll be good to resource and connect with local filmmakers, photographers and other artists!
