Phyllis Schneider

With a soft smile on her face and a welcoming energy, it is easy to see why Phyllis Schneider is the director of the Child Development Center at Los Angeles Pierce College. The child development program has been around for 35-years, but has only been in its current location for about four years. The CDC does not look like an average kindergarten or pre-school....

Mr. California

This years theme for our fall issue of The Bull magazine is “sub cultures”. As a photographer for the magazine I wanted to find something different and exciting that I have not yet photographed. The world of bodybuilding came to my mind. The thought of taking pictures of these beautiful and symmetrical bodies convinced me that this was the right...

Baby Doll Goth

It is 102 degrees in the San Fernando Valley and it is also the 3rd week of school here at Pierce College.

Switching Teams

The fall semester continues and The Bull Magazine’s articles have officially gone from a good  idea to a tough homework assignment and deadline. The newsroom has a permanent energy of intensity as the writers and photographers keep up with the weekly assignments, maintain a job, other classes and personal lives. A confused look was on our editors face last Tuesday, after...

It’s not easy, being cheesy

I was getting very worried. The deadlines for the pictures where coming up and my face, Rufio had already cancelled 3 appointments we made for the photo-shoot. Our magazine’s editor in chief, Genna Gold reminded me that part of the job is to be persistent. Call him, text him, email him. “Annoy the shit out of this guy” she said with...
