Nicaragua

I just got back from Central America and had some time to take some pictures on a trip through Nicaragua. We visited the capital of Managua, the city of Granada, two volcanoes and a fresh water lake that had sharks living in it. While driving through the country we were pulled over by police for not exceeding the speed limit, but for driving faster than the area would allow. They let us go for a $10 bribe. This is a standard practice in Central America as bribing the police for traffic offenses usually costs between $2 and $10. It can also take as much as $200 in bribes to drive from Mexico to Costa Rica.

Flora Pop for the Wall Street Journal by Las Vegas Professional Photographer Jacob Kepler

As someone who has traveled around the county, living in a van, I have always really liked the look of these teardrop shaped trailers with their stainless steel finish. I would have never though of turning it into a business, which is exactly what Victoria Hogan from Flora Pop did. Flora Pop is a full service, all inclusive pop-up wedding service. Hogan travels to various places around Las Vegas, uses the trailer as a sort of altar, and is licensed to officiate the wedding. We met near Nelson's Landing for the photos.

Les Grossman

Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder.  He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.

Hydeia Broadbent for Poz Magazine

I recently had the opportunity to photograph activist Hydeia Broadbent for the cover of POZ Magazine. In 1984, Broadbent was born with HIV, and addicted to crack and heroin. She began her activism at the age of six by appearing on TV shows like Oprah and speaking at the National Institutes of Health.  Currently, she works as an author and continues to speak internationally on the subject of HIV/AIDS.       I met Broadbent at my studio and did some quick change lighting setups for most of the portraits. We also walked around the grounds to get some additional photos.
