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

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 [...]

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 [...]

Throwback Thursday: 2006


I was putting together a custom-tailored gallery to help sell a new client. I was digging deep, and decided to go back to my first couple years as a shooter. You never know when you’ll find a hidden gem covered in dust. I got to 2006, and I must say that I was horrified [...]

Pools for Atlanta Magazine


As the summer begins to wane in the South, I was reminded of this fun assignment that kicked off the season for me. With all the dark sinister nether regions of our world that photojournalism explores, I always welcome these feature projects where I get the opportunity to show what is good, happy and [...]
