Entrapment for Rolling Stone

I’m always amazed at the gift I am given when someone allows me, a total stranger, into their life at a vulnerable or emotional time. It creates in my own mind a certain sense of responsibility – a responsibility to be sensitive in my approach, and to portray them with respect and dignity. That [...]

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. I relieved myself instead by simply selecting some of my favorites from some of the shoots I enjoyed the most. Oftentimes simply [...]

Crime Drama for The Wall Street Journal


To set the scene – there was an uncharacteristic chill in the crisp night air as a constant dull drizzle covered the set, high above the city lights of Los Angeles, tucked away in a dark corner where our villain resided. The assignment was an apt introduction to LA – the final night of [...]

Vet Hunters for NBC


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. [...]

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 [...]

Walker Stalker Con for CNN


I try to keep my television consumption to a minimum. Try is the key word there. Not because I think the dreaded TV is something evil destroying our society – no, that would only be if you added the prefix, ‘reality.’ I simply find that I am not as productive as I otherwise would [...]

War Against Gay Teens for Rolling Stone


A while back, I was commissioned by Rolling Stone to shoot a set of portraiture of two gay teens in Georgia to accompany a bold and important investigative piece they titled, ‘The Hidden War Against Gay Teens.’ In their own words, the story explained how, “Private Christian schools are exploiting local laws to raise [...]

Toto for The Wall Street Journal


Toilets are cool. That’s right, I said it, toilets are cool. They are sleek porcelain sculptures made with old world craft mixed with cutting edge technology, and they solve one of our society’s more gut wrenching, if you will, dilemmas. We all have them in a first world country, and we all ignore them, [...]

LeRon Furr for Sports Illustrated


I headed down to Wildcat Stadium in Fort Valley, GA with one of the more cryptic assignments I’ve had to date. I wasn’t told the full story – I was given only vague details and the general idea that this was part of an ongoing investigative piece. Those allusions gave me a pretty good idea [...]
