Today, I shot a Studio Enjoy video of the Magik City Music Group. They are a local hip-hop act who are growing popularity. They were a great bunch of musicians and fun and easy to work with. These are couple of the photos that I shot for the Enjoy section of our paper. I’ll post the video here after it runs on the Gazette’s website.

Here is an an interview that I shot today of Auliea Hanlon, the mother of Cherise Moralez. Cherize Moralez was raped by her teacher at Senior High School when she was 14 and she later killed herself. The case has recently drawn international attention because Judge G. Todd Baugh made some idiotic statements about Cherise at a sentencing hearing for her rapist, Stacey Rambold. He basically justified a 30 day sentence for rape by claiming that Cherise acted older than her age.
The interview is edited into two parts. The third video is of the protest today to get Baugh to resign.
Today, a grass fire in Shepherd almost got out of control and nearly burnt down someone’s house. The mostly volunteer firefighters and few brave neighbors worked hard to prevent a complete disaster. Here are some of my pictures and a video from the scene. You can read Brett French’s story here: http://bit.ly/13Xuwuf.
Here is the second video from the band No Cigar’s time in the studio. It rocks balls. Check it out.
Yesterday, Special Olympics Montana held their annual fundraiser, Over the Edge. The event lets you rappel down the tallest building in Montana if you raise $1000 for the organization. They let the media come out the day before to participate in the decent in order to encourage people to come out the day of the event. It is a great time for a great cause, and if you can afford it, I highly recommend trying it out.

I got the opportunity to shoot the Spiral Skies Bellydance troupe, a group of belly dancers who dabble in fire dancing. It was a fun shoot but I was short on time and would love to spend more time shooting them in the future, if they would let me. They are putting on a show here in Billings this weekend.
