I caught up with Caroline D’Amore pre-show at the very famous Roxy Night Club as she prepared to present all her music live. It all started as I arrived at the Roxy. I got there a bit early cause I didn’t want any trouble at the door. I was actually there before the security and door people got there, just as the band was finishing the final touches on stage. I went inside and then upstairs and I started to look for any sign of life. It wasn’t until I walked into one of the dressing rooms that I noticed my friend and my photographic subject, Caroline D’Amore (http://www.carolinedamore.net). She was running around getting all the final preparations done with make up, hair, and everything else that goes on before the performance. Her performance was incredible. It was choreographed by Brittany Hughes. After her show, I captured Caroline D’Amore hanging out and kissing with her boyfriend Bobby Alt, who is the singer and drummer of Street Drum Corps. I quickly took the opportunity to have them pose for a few artistic photos of the couple on the red and blue running lights along the upstairs hallway. I told them to get into a position and then not to move. I was going to be shooting at 1/8th of a second, even my heartbeat, could make my shots blurry. Somehow, I was able to pull it off.
I was circling around Kings Road Cafe on Beverly and I was not spotting anyone. Then just as I was about to leave that area and make a left onto Beverly Blvd, there goes David Spade. I think that he might have been whistling away at a song inside his car. You know when you get the feeling about a song but you don’t know the words and the only thing that you can do is whistle the melody, yup! That is what David was doing inside his car.
This all happened on Monday of this week so I know that it is an older story. It was really a bad day that day. It rained all morning and it was very cloudy in the afternoon. The day was so bad that when I metered my camera on objects, I had to push my ISO to 640.
I was still asleep when my Pap Alert started going off the hook. By the third time that it rang, I figured that it was something important. It was about 1:00 PM on Saturday and I was still sleeping, well, until I got woken up. When I answered, I looked to see who it was and it was my girlfriend. She says to me, “I have a good tip for you.” I asked her, “What is it?”
I was just getting out of my house… I was standing in the driveway looking at the cars go by. I was about to go get my car since I had to go park on the street since they are painting were I live and I noticed Two cars that made my Spydie Senses go nuts. I ran to my car and I started to follow. We were heading southbound on Crescent Heights Blvd and I got caught on one of the lights. I lost them.
I figured that they were heading to Fred Segal and I headed in that direction. Well, to my surprise that is were they were. They were getting the little one out of her car seat. I parked in the handicap parking zone and I ran out with my camera to capture the moment. I initially thought that they were going to get mad at me since they are sometime hard to work with. Well, they Didn’t! They simply ignored me.
I will finish the story tomorrow… I am really really tired. Good Night!
Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie were recording an episode of The Simple Life at Paris’ house. Every single paparazzo was there getting some shots. The whole town was free of paparazzi. I was finding exclusives left and right.
Just as I was finishing off Nicky Hilton, two paparazzi pulled over to see what I was taking pictures of. They initially thought that it was Paris Hilton also since they also noticed her car parked on the opposite side of the road. They came out with no cameras and told that I should call some backup since if I stick around for Paris that I would miss Jessica Simpson on Third St and La Cienega Blvd.
