Escape to LA Pt. I: Cross Country


It’s a strange feeling to get in the car one morning, and leave your home, life, and everything you know behind. It’s a feeling both sad, happy, free and terrifying. That’s what we did six weeks ago when we left the South, and set out for the West Coast. We loaded up our two [...]

Escape to LA Pt. II: Landscape


I am enamored by the natural world. I feed off of my surroundings, and I am drinking in the vast range of beauty out my front door in Southern California. I am indulging my secret landscape photographer within. As I said before, the allure of this place will not soon be lost on me. [...]

Escape to LA Pt. III: Muse

As photographers, we are defined not just by our style, and who we are, but also by the subjects we choose. I believe I’m still in search of my perfectly suited professional subject, or perhaps such a pursuit is trivial to strive for, and I should just accept that this will be a [...]

2013 Year in Review


I began looking for my best images of the year, but found that to be a doomed cause for on a different day I would certainly select a different stack of photographs.

Nothing makes me stare into my own reason for being more than bearing witness to those that devote themselves to helping others, despite the obstacles, danger, and lack of funds and resources they may face. It makes me pear into my own soul and ask what the hell I’m doing to better this world. [...]

Gouls, Water, and Andy


I often treat photos of my friends and personal life as something akin to a long roll of film. I shoot a few, put it down, and don’t think about it till later. I often use my X100, simply leaving the files in the camera, and letting it build up. So I just went [...]

Modern American Family for The New York Times


I recently had the pleasure of spending time with two amazing families; the Indrakrishnan family in Atlanta, and the Schulte-Wayser family in Los Angeles. Our country is truly a melting pot of culture, and that’s one of the reasons I love it. Even our definition and characteristics of race have begun to blend and [...]

Back to the Future


After a long hiatus, since I sold my Hassleblad, mistakenly I might add, I’ve gone back to shooting medium format film. I’m a bit rusty, and it’s a bit outside my comfort zone, but stepping outside that zone has defined my life for the past year or so. I left my own company after [...]
