Twin Galaxies Entertainment Festival

@Jace Hall and his staff worked around the clock to set up the equipment for the arcade and retro game tournaments. Each machine had cameras and monitors, the event was broadcast around the world.

I love the photos I got, but because I was working I didn't really get to hang out and chat with people. All artists must suffer for their art I suppose.


Two of the very best Donkey Kong players in the world, Robbie Lakeman and Wes Copeland. Both great guys, very happy to be their friend.

Joel West (RIP) and Datagod. But wait...who took the photo? (I had a remote in my pocket)

    You got any pics of that A-hole that won all that money? Even if it's just his bald spot? I'm down to see them.

    If one were to caption the pic of Jace and his staff it could be something like
    "Jace explains to the one guy who didnt get the memo why a full head of hair is not allowed for staff members."

    Love the photography. That pic of Robbie and Wes is particularly striking, given their history, current events and relationship.

    It sucks I didnt know about this stuff as it was going on because I wouldn't have missed it.
    I really hope more stuff like this is organized in the near future.

    @datagod This isn't a trick question. The A-Hole I'm talking about is me.

    That almost looks shopped. Who am I kidding. Looks shopped all the way. Super cool pic. Thanks for sharing!

    Can I share some of these pics on my Twitter?

    You certainly can good buddy. The only photoshop I used for these is to enhance colors, contrast, etc.

    I know it's not shopped. Just complimenting your skills.
