For the last few months I have worked with a group with Susco media and publisher Derrick Breaux on a local publication. It is an informative full color local magazine with articles and pieces of interest on the kids, families and businesses in the 92127 area code. The first issue was out in November and it is a bi-monthly magazine which means the next is due out at the beginning of January. I have been shooting some of the images for covers and articles. You can check out last months issue 92127 magazine and click on the Current issue to see the magazine. I shot the cover, family photo on page 14, Student star on page 22 and my ad on page 30.
This month I was able to photograph some shots at the local fire station that they will be featuring in the magazine. It is our fire station less than a mile from my house that was paramount in saving our neighborhood during the fires in October 2007. They are also a training facility so other stations from the surrounding areas come here to train. I was able to see 3 different stations in action as they put out a “prop” car. They lit the car and the engines had to come in with their crew and work to put it out and then get the equipment back on the truck. It was kind of exciting to watch so here are a few photos. Some of them will be in the article in next months issue of 92127 magazine.
