Sept 2010 Issue

 

Check out the Sept 2010 Issue of California Homes Magazine for a new Toky Photography tearsheet. Featuring the awesome work of Brandon Morrison of whyrHymer. I’ve know Brandon for many years and have photographed his Furniture & Lamps for a long time. His eye for detail in his furniture photos has influenced my still life and product photography and has helped me work with other designers (in different disciplines) with a better understanding of what they (designers) are after when their 3D creations/pieces need to become 2D digital images for promotions, websites, line-sheets, etc…

Aside from that, I’ve collaborated with Brandon extensively in other projects, such as the Music Videos we’ve been directing recently. Also, you might recognize him as “The Furniture Maker” from my photo series of that name. Make sure you pick up a copy of the magazine and read the article.

In the meantime you can visit his website:

and you can follow him on Twitter @whyrhymer

Thank you to everyone who has visited, commented and e-mailed me about the Spirit of the San Francisco Marathon Photo essays!

I am very grateful to all of you and excited to announce that because of the huge success that project has been, I am starting a website dedicated exclusively to the photo essays as well as other running goodies. Not only that, I’m already in touch with other marathons to create other photo essays documenting different races around the country.

I love ALL your comments! Including comments made directly to me by three (!!!) different friends who asked me: “were you talking about me when you said that everyone gives excuses not to run a marathon?”… so for the record, I wasn’t talking about anyone in particular. The essays are full of “inside jokes” for runners, and we -all- hear those comments, and those are like the TOP comments that we all hear. So… anyways, I thought that was amusing… the more I do this the more I realize we runners are crazy people. Regular folk don’t need to run if they don’t want to 🙂 to each their own

Anyhow, I am hard at work on the marathon photo website. In the meantime, here are what some Facebook folks had to say about the photos over at the San Francisco Marathon Facebook page.

Speaking of Facebook… are you my fan on Facebook? and are you following me on Twitter? If not, this is a great opportunity to do so.
