Patagonia Lunch Break for The Washington Post

You think your work environment is unhealthy? Well, then, it probably is. Might I suggest pointing your employer to the workplace practices over at Patagonia. And if the boss bites on that, maybe point him or her to Patagonia’s 1% For the Planet campaign, or heck, even just the company’s policy of [...]

Hot Rod for The Wall Street Journal

What does Fender master guitar builder Paul Waller do in his spare time? Well build other classy toys of envy of course. Read about his 1932 Ford coupe here.

Colm Toibin for The New York Times

It’s not every day your portrait subject is an acclaimed novelist. What’s even more rare though is an acclaimed novelist who has been photographed by Richard Avedon, twice. While I would imagine such a situation to be wrought with anxiety, my shoot with the talented Irish writer was anything but. Toibin had a delightful [...]

Kate Mulleavy for The Wall Street Journal


Without a doubt, my idea of ‘news’ coverage has changed since moving to Los Angeles to include a whole plethora of interests that would in most cases slip quietly past my personal radar. New haircuts, for example, as was the case with my recent Wall Street Journal shoot with Rodarte co-founder Kate Mulleavy. That said, [...]

Dan Bilzerian for The Wall Street Journal

What could I say about Dan Bilzerian that the photographs do not. What could I say about Bilzerian that his own instagram account does not (seriously follow it, and then follow smushball’s). Well, plenty, but fortunately that is on the writer’s shoulders and not my own. I will say that I was surprised by [...]

Karen de la Carriere: Ex-Queen of Scientology

Karen de la Carriere, former Sea Org Class IX Supervisor and ex-wife of the former Scientology president Heber Jentzsch, turned whistle-blower on the organization. I would write here more, but quite honestly, those people are terrifying and I have little interest in their wrath. I will leave that to the writing of Laura Collins at [...]

Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, the unlikely duo who created the fashion giant Juicy Couture go back to their roots with a new venture, and hopes to chase their dreams once more. Here’s a look behind the scenes in the living room headquarters of the new Pam & Gela. Check out the story

Matt Reeves for The Wall Street Journal

While I am happy to have hours, days or weeks with a subject, I am also constantly working to cultivate that need for speed which I encounter frequently. This particular shoot – six precious minutes and three setups. The trickier part is trying to connect with a subject in that period of time. As [...]

Teen Cancer Survivor for The New York Times

During my recent endeavor to incorporate yoga into my life, I’ve chosen certain words to focus on and come back to when I feel my mind stray. Among these are, stereotypically, creativity, but more importantly kindness and positivity. I have no doubt that my life and the life of those around me would be [...]
