Just the other day I was working with The Ninja in West Hollywood and he spotted this actress who was sporting herself this butt!
She was close to the local Starbucks and a newspaper stand. The Ninja just found a parking space half a block away. He had the famous and lucky Hunter, “The Hollywood Dog” with him, but he couldn’t get to the scene in time to position himself in a nice shooting location without being seen. So he let me do all the work.
I don’t think that she stopped for coffee, but she went directly to the magazines. Eventually she bought a few mags and went to her car. She waited in her car for about 10 minutes before she headed in the direction of her home.
By that time, The Ninja, Hunter, and myself were sitting at an outside table having some coffee. So have you guessed who it is?
I went out kinda late today. It was about 2:00 PM and I had to run an errand. I got in my car and I went through my normal motions of getting my cameras ready and checking the settings. I didn’t realize that I was on auto pilot until after I finished running my errand. It was about 4:30 PM and I was thinking that I haven’t found anyone today. So, finally I woke up and I got serious about finding a celeb.
I was driving around Sunset Blvd. and I spotted Mira Sorvino. She had her puppy in her lap. She was heading the opposite direction. My goodness, there was so much traffic that I couldn’t make a U-turn. So I wasn’t able to get to anyone today.
As I was driving home, my pap alert goes off. This time it was a text message and I viewed it. Wow!, is what came out of my mouth after reading it. “Britney Spears is giving birth now at St. John’s Hospital.” Well, I hope it all goes well for her, I thought, and I continued homebound to see my lovely lady.
So, now that I am talking about having babies, I posted some pics that I didn’t place on the blog a few weeks ago because of their exclusivity. I heard Sean P. Diddy Combs is going to be a father again (of twins) with his model girlfriend Kim Porter.
Kinda like the story I told on my previous posting. I was checking out the Cafe Med parking lot and as I was about to exit, Eva Longoria drives in with a small entourage of paparazzi behind her. I had no choice, I was already there, I couldn’t ignore it, I couldn’t avoid it, I had to go for it!
I made a quick U-turn and went right back into the parking lot. I knew that it was going to be a gangbang of paparazzi because for one, we were at Cafe Med which is ONE of the most heavily paparazzi traveled restaurants; and two, there was an agency there that likes to call in the entire army of paparazzi.
After parking, Eva was just chilling in her car, talking on her phone, waiting for her friends to arrive. How inconsiderate she was, since all the paparazzi were waiting for her to get out of her car waiting in the scorching sun.
Ok…It was a little hot.
She finally comes out of her car and I realized quickly, again, that I really don’t like gangbangs. Everyone was taking shots. She meets her friends and they all walk into the rear entrance of the restaurant. Eva was smiling the whole time. She loves the attention that we give her. After all, why do you think that she goes to Cafe Med about twice a week?
Time is passing by and more paparazzi are showing up. About one and a half hours later, she comes out and once again, everyone was fighting for some shots. She finally gets into her car and is escorted out by those that didn’t get any shots. I think she just went home? I wasn’t going to bother chasing…
I had a great time during my vacation. I didn’t go too far. I went to Beaumont, California. Why did I go there? Well, I am glad that you asked, but I will tell you about it at the end of this post.
So, just before I left you guys hanging I mentioned that I got a story that I was not able to place on the blog since it may mess up the exclusivity of the picture. Well, unfortunately, I should have just posted it and maybe it would have sparked more interest from those magazines that read this blog. I never saw my picture printed in any magazines or tabloids.
I believe that the closeness to the Emmy’s and VMA’s probably messed up my sales.
Well, here are the shots that I held from you guys of the lovely Debra Messing.
I found her entering Cafe Med’s parking lot. I was on my way out since I already scoped out the place and no one wanted to be photographed until I spotted Debra Messing. She had an assistant driving her car. They never got out of the car. All I could see is the reflection of Debra talking on the phone. Literally for about one hour. I am surprised that within all that time, no other Pap showed up.
Well, her assistant turns on the car and they head out of the parking lot. I am on cautious pursuit since I am in the hot zone. They head up the hill and end up at a private party where they valet parked their car and were waiting for the shuttle to take them to the party. I jumped out of the car since I knew that the shuttle was close by and I hosed her on the spot. Now, mind you, I normally don’t do this since I don’t like the celeb to recognize me.
Debra was really nice to me and smiled for the photo. The only thing that she requested was that I not video her. I happily pretended to comply.
I guess, lucky for me, the shuttle did not come soon enough and Debra got tired of waiting. She jumped back in her car and took off for home.
One thing that I thought was going to sell the shots was that she seemed to be carrying a little belly, hinting at the rumors of her possibly being pregnant. I thought that I had proven it with the shots that I took, but maybe she is not pregnant. What do you guys think?
OK, back to my vacation. I went to Beaumont, California with my lovely girl to learn about changing our perspective in life. We took the “Enlightened Warrior Training Camp.” I actually think that if you go through this experience, you will change your life as well. I am not going to bore you with the details, but I will leave you with this to entice your curiosity.

Ok, I found the video that I did of Michelle Rodriguez as she was having lunch and practicing her French. She was saying something in French which sounded like, “Blah, Blah, Blah,” to me. When I asked her what that meant, she replied, “Birds don’t fart, they blow up.”

Yesterday the Super Lotto cheated me out of millions of dollars. I only got one number out of two plays and two bucks. It is sad the way they cheated me out of becoming a super star.
Oh well. I guess if I would have won, I would be on the next flight to the Bahamas. I would be there for an entire month before returning to work. After all, I could only probably afford to buy one house next to Tom Cruise so that I can get a closer look into his property so that I can snap a picture of Baby Suri. Oh well, I didn’t win! I guess the only bad part of me winning the lotto is that I wouldn’t be writing this Blog. Well, maybe I would have spotted someone in the airport on the way to the Bahamas.
Ok, on to my day. I woke up really late again. I am almost making myself seem like I am lazy. But I am not, I work hard and I am just like people around the world, making every effort to succeed. It was around 2:00 PM when I woke up and fixed the bed. Then I went to do the dishes. Yup! That is right, I do the dishes. My girl cooks, I do the dishes. They are good meals by the way.
I was on Melrose Ave. and I waved hello to a fellow Pap. Just then, it was almost simultaneous, we both spotted Michelle Rodriguez walking back home with her female companion.
Michelle has always been really cool with me. One day, I found her at Fred Segal and she was practicing her French. She was saying something like… Blah Blah Blah… Well, that is the way it sounded to me. I asked her what it meant. She almost choked on what she was eating with laughter and said to me, “Birds don’t fart, they blow up.” I couldn’t contain myself with laughter.
Well, back to the story. The other Pap and I work for competing agencies and we both made a U-turn. We kept it Old School. We gave her plenty of space and were both shooting long. Before she arrived at her house, I rolled down my window and asked her if she remembered her French saying. She started to laugh and waved goodbye.
PS: OK! You got me! Michelle was not the only person I got today. I never only get one person. I got an exclusive story today and I can’t post it because it may mess up sales. I will post it later once it has been sold to the tabloids.
So what happened two nights ago at Brody Jenner’s birthday bash? Well, nothing different! It was all the same nighttime routine. Stand outside the club, hangout, talk to other photographers, make fun of the people that are waiting in line to get into the club, watch the pretty girls cut the line simply by hugging the security guard, and the best part is watching people, and even some celebs, stumble on the way out saying that they are not drunk.
Brody Jenner and Nicole arrived in the same car. His mom also made an appearance. Brody left the party at the end of the night, holding hands with Nicole Richie, not Kristin Cavallari as most people expected.
Kristin was his date last week, after all this is Hollywood. “When I saw Nicole, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought that my camera was distorted; Nicole looked really thin,” The Ninja said to me.
Stavros Niarchos was out. He actually wanted to hide from the Paps by walking really fast towards the front entrance. He was using people as shields from the bulbs.
Tara Reid showed up. It seemed that she had already started the party a few hours ago. She was really happy.
Jack Osbourne switched clubs a few minutes after he arrived. He decided to head over to Hyde. I guess he didn’t like the music at Privilege?
Kim Kardashian drove Brandon Davis. They also left the club together. They were asked by some of the Paps if they were dating. Brandon takes his cigarette out of his mouth and responds, “Are you two dating?”
“Firecrotch” Brandon Davis was later asked about Kevin Federline’s performance. He once again takes his cigarette out of his mouth and says, “Why would I care about Kevin Federline’s performance?”
Nicky Hilton and boyfriend, Kevin Connelly, did their best to not be photographed together; and you wonder why Hollywood couples never last that long?
And Shawn Wayan made about a 15 minute appearance. As quickly as he came in, he came out. I guest he just wanted to show face?
Others that we didn’t want to photograph that were also there where Suge Knight and Wilmer Valderrama.
I was up late last night taking shots of Nicole Richie and Brody Jenner and their guests as they celebrated Brody’s birthday at Privilege last night; I didn’t get to sleep until 6 AM. My Pap Alert goes off around 12:00 PM. I get a tip that Kate del Castillo was having lunch at one of the local eateries. I quickly get up and I put on my dirty clothes from last night and I get my gear. I’m half asleep and dirty as I head to see if I can get a few shots. Unfortunately, I didn’t get there in time. But it wasn’t long before I found Keanu Reeves and this mystery blonde heading into Orso.
I only got a few shots and it was time for me to wait. I went into hiding mode and I placed all the shades up in my car to camouflage me. Since I was on the main route I noticed these paps that had spotted my car and wondered what I was doing. They circled the street about three times before they parked nearby. One of them gets out of his car and starts looking around the Orso parking lot to see if he can identify what I was working on. I was getting jumped.
I called The Ninja to come help me out. By the time The Ninja arrived, the jumpers had already called three other friends. I had no choice but to go commando. There was a staircase that was blocked off by a plant. The stairs led to the second floor of the restaurant. I went to the plant and ran upstairs. I was able to knock off a few shots of the new couple having lunch together. The Manager of Orso comes out and asks me not to do that. I said ok and went back into my car.
I asked The Ninja if he wanted to get a few shots of the new couple eating and I told him about the stairs. The Ninja was a little more stealth than I was. He didn’t get caught. Well, I guess that is why he is called The Ninja.
By now, we had gotten a good set. All we needed to complete the set was a couple shots of them walking out. I had a great parking spot across the street from the restaurant, so The Ninja and I decide to wait inside my car. We were sure that we had much better pictures than our amateur-jumper competition.
The two soon came out and we came out of my car. We ran across the street and we started hosing them. We needed to get better shots than our competition. Keanu was cool with us. He never covered his face, even though it was a little flush.
