Ami Face!

Ami Storck! ©2011 Gary Livingston

My friend, producer, Ami Storck! =) Ugh, this is a long time coming. Went on a few too many vacations after shooting her photo! I’m excited to get this up finally!

New Faces: Merrie, Jason, Casey

Merrie Swain is awesome! She saw my photos and wanted to be a part of my Faces project. She’s does some modeling and works over at G4 TV. She was a blast to photograph and talk to. Cool ass nerd =)

My brother, Jason with his awe inspiring beard. Holy shit. Casey’s below is longer I think but, Jason’s is just burly as can be. He’s currently working for AEG Live in New Orleans as a freelance Stage Producer and 3D camera man. Once he gets a reel together I’ll be sure to share. I really just rushed him into my room before he left for four weeks so I could get his beard recorded if he decided to shave while gone. haha.

Casey Crescenzo of The Dear Hunter. In case you somehow missed my admiration for him and his work feel free to search The Dear Hunter on my site. He is currently touring with Dredg (another music group I love) and gearing up to release his Color Spectrum Project (the music is fantastic~!).

New Faces: Sam and Ryan

Just finished up Sam Marie’s Face =)

She is an awesome animator! If you ever need some animation done or if you are looking to add to your team be sure to contact her!

Ami Storck (I’ll get her up soon enough) and Sam are new friends of mine. They both really surprised me with how supportive they are due to their willingness and excitement to come out to my hockey games to cheer and get rowdy after only knowing me for a couple weeks and hanging out maybe twice. Means heaps!

Sam rules and was a blast to take photos of. One day I’ll get some of the more cartoonish faces up. I just really liked this shot so it is the first to make it. =)

Ok. Here is my buddy, Ryan Brekke.

Ryan has been the most interesting shoot yet. Not only was he all over the map with poses but, we got talking and sharing some really random stuff during the shoot.

At one point Ryan mentioned how some of our friends and he were discussing clever and funny porno site names. I mentioned a few funny ones that exist, including

Next thing we know we are loading it up while shooting because Ryan had never seen it before. haha. When I have more time I will add a good one of Ryan showing his face the first time he saw MeatSpin. haha.

Apparently, Ryan was so taken back by the experience he insisted that I always show my subjects MeatSpin at some point during the shoot to capture some really good faces and break the ice. haha. I think he might be onto something!

Once Ryan has a site I’ll throw it up!

New Faces: Bonnie and Jacob

Here are two more friends! I love these people =)

Bonnie Kate Hussey <3

Jacob Fatoorechi (Look him up on my blog! He plays with heaps of bands and he is incredible!)

New Faces: Brad Crowell and Myke Armstrong

I got to shoot with my new friend, Brad, of Dead Letter Perfect, last week.

It was a total blast. Brad is a photographer in addition to being a talented musician. So, it was a really extra fun experience hearing his insight of the photo shoot.

Be sure to pay attention to his blog. He’s currently working on a 3-song EP and it should be great! I heard the demos and the songs have some really great dynamics to them.

Here is one of my BFFs, Myke Armstrong. He is the CEO and Founder of the newly launched internet start-up,

It is a really fun chat platform in the vein of Omeagle and Chatroulette. It is still being built out and there is a new feature added each week! Be sure to join in on the fun and share your thoughts with “Myke.”

He’s a great guy and fun to talk with!

I’m working on some more Faces right now. So, stay tuned.


New Face! Brandon =)

My friend Brandon Rubin =) He is as sweet he looks until you sit him down in front of the TV while the Lakers are losing…whoa…take cover. Flying remotes ahoy! haha

More faces coming! Trevor Martin and a bunch of friends new and old this week!

I got four more added to the collection.

Alex Vojdani of Infantree.

You really gotta go listen to his band:!/infantree

Paul Mocey-Hanton, photographer and cinematographer extraordinaire. He’s a co-founder of Lost Hills Films: Lost-Hills-Films/

Steve Davis of skate culture company, Ripe (be ready for it).

Here is my brother, Blake, to the Faces project. Played with some modifications to the lighting using kleenex as diffusion.

He’s another co-founder of Lost Hills Films: Lost-Hills-Films/

It’s been a long time since I’ve shot straight portraits focused on head and shoulders. I liked how this self portrait came out of myself and I have decided to do a little series focused on this.

I’m starting to shoot some friends to refresh my skills.

First one is of Jeff Ramuno.

I expect to get a lot more up in the next week as I pull friends away from the coach in the house and put them in front of my lights for a few minutes each. haha.

Be sure to check out his music:
