Slater's 50/50
61 N Raymond Ave
PasadenaCA 91103
Neighborhood: Pasadena

When I'm in the mood for a hefty American lunch, my mouth waters for a juicy rare beef patty. I've had my share of gourmet burgers in the past year and I'm even more determined this year to find the juiciest burger out there. You're also gonna need to (de)hydrate yourself with a pint or two of some local brew right? 

At Slater's you not only have a row of taps to choose from but you can also build your own burger. That's right, everything from the type of bread, meat patty (50/50 is their signature patty), right down to the type of cheese you want. So many choices and combinations to design your ideal burger, it can't get any better than that. A word of advice: if you're not a fan of "charred" flavored patties, I would inform your server or chef. 

Slater's Vampire dip to start off with and the main course, Slater's 50/50 signature burger. Every burger is served with a steak knife puncturing the sandwich together. Interesting presentation.

Fashion Class Collaborations

Every semester that fashion photography is offered, the two departments fashion and photography come together to shoot an end of semester final project. 

It's a great opportunity for us to get multiple shots of different models all ready and dolled up. Hair, make-up artists, and of course the dress designers provided. Also benefits the dress designers providing them some pieces for their portfolio as well.

My group and I had the best location. We were the first ones to check in and the first to check out. Swiftly we managed to get the biggest and most natural lit location in the whole vicinity. 

Despite the rain we still had a lot of workspace but this also means more volume and frequency of demands from the models and their designers. I snapped at least 1,000 shots by the end of the non-stop 5 hour shoot.
