What another amazing experience on this very special Elvis Tribute that I have been working on with Priscilla Presley. The photo shoot yesterday with 'Sir Elton John' was another memorable time and I'm truly thankful for the opportunity to work with all these true 'Icons'. Elton John and his entire crew was nothing but kind and accommodating. I still have more amazing talent lined up to complete this project and look forward to the near future shoots and sharing my experiences with you who enjoy them. Here is a behind the scene photo from yesterdays shoot. Have a beautiful weekend. -Christopher
Had an amazing photo shoot with the very talented Michael Buble for the 'Shades of Elvis' tribute book being released later this year. Michael was a true talent and a really great host at his home. I can truly understand why he has the number 1 album in the country and why people love him so much.
This week in my OK! Pets page in OK! Magazine I feature the very beautiful and talented Mayin Bialik star of 'The Big Bang Theory' and her hairless cat. I have always been a fan of Mayin ever since I first saw her as a young Bette Midler in the movie 'Beaches'

What a great past two weeks of photos shoots. Moving along perfectly with the Elvis tribute book 'Shades of Elvis' Again this has been such an incredible ride photographing all these amazing artist for this very special tribute. I recently had the opportunity to photograph Willie Nelson, Billy Gibbos of ZZ Top and one of my idols Mr. Tim Burton. It is always a bit nerve racking when you have someone you look up to asking you for direction. This is the second time I worked with Tim Burton and he is just such an amazing person. Not only was I distracted by knowing I was photographing Tim, his wife the very beautiful and talented Helena Bonham Carter was there watching as well. It was truly another highlight in my career.
I'm very proud of 'Shades of Elvis' and cannot wait for it to be released. Just 'Taking Care of Business' -TCB

What a crazy busy week it has been. Photo shoots every day this past week. I got to work with more Icons and Legends this week. The begining of the week I photographed the skate boarding icon 'Tony Hawk' at his offices in San Diego. Tony was so cool and came on set riding his board. He was totally honored that we are featuring him in the Elvis tribute book as I was to photograph him.
I also photographed another legend mid week 'Mr. Peter Fonda' What a trill it was to meet and photograph Peter. I could have spent the entire day there with him listening to his stories one in-particular he told me is when he played football with Elvis. What a great guy and very funny. He had a smile on his face from the time we got there til we left.
Another fun shoot was with my friend of many years and a person who changes lives everyday 'Jillian Michaels. I photographed Jillian for the Elvis tribute book and she looked killer hot with Elvis's shades on.
In between I also shot for my OK! Pets page and those shoots included Julie White from the Transformer movies and also photographed Ricky Schroder. I love when I get crazy busy weeks it keeps the creative energy flowing. I have many other great photo shoots lined up for this month and will be posting about them. Have a great Sunday - TCB Christopher
It has been a great couple of weeks to this new year. Shoots are going great. Of course the OK! Pets is always a blast and doing very well with the readers.
The Elvis Tribute book is moving along and we are planning it to be done and out by August 2013 for Elvis week. Yesterday I photographed the amazing Ron Perlman for this wonderful tribute. Ron was just incredible to work with and I have always been a huge fan of his. Not to mention he looked really bad ass wearing Elvis's glasses. So many great shoots lined up for this tribute and we are really thrilled about the mixer of great talent.
I will keep you up to date as we move along and when Priscilla Presley and I start to promote the book.
What an amazing year it has been for me with my photography and photo shoots. My OK! Pets feature is doing very well and getting to photograph people each week with their animals is always a thrill.
The Elvis Tribute book is moving along incredibly and the amazing talent that I have been able to photograph to date to be featured in the book has been a dream come true. It has been a crazy ride to date. The year has come to an end and what better way then to photograph the amazingly talented and most warm and generous person I have come across in Los Angeles Johnny Depp. Johnny will be featured in the Elvis tribute book wearing Elvis Presley's personally owned sunglasses. The book is slated to be out August 2013.
The entire project itself has been very touching for me as I'm getting to see and feel the love and respect that people have for Elvis Presley. I have to thank the most beautiful woman Priscilla Presley for being part of this project and help my dream become a reality.
I'm excited for you all to see the finished product in 2013. Happy New Year to everyone and remember TCB - Peace Christopher Ameruoso
