More Nudity

I am lucky enough to have another photo spread going up on Nerve today! I really love shooting for them, they give the photographer such freedom and don't shy away from more arty imagery. I would encourage anyone who enjoys nude-shooting to contact them, it's been a consistently great experience.

Going to Detroit

A friend sent me James Griffioen's work months ago and I was in love.

His images of a dilapidated Detroit (and other cities) are the best I've seen; his innate sense of how to shoot the city, moving away from the spectacularly tragic to focus on the everyday, infusing it with a feeling of loss, intimacy, and history all without being sentimental.

When It Works

My latest shoot with, along with Dunlin, was the greatest commercial job I've had thus far. They were incredibly kind, gracious, easy-going and thoughtful. Moreover, they just let me do my thing, giving helpful feedback as we went along.

While I am truly excited by the images (and our having come up with 50+ different poses), the memory of a wonderful shoot, wherein everything worked effortlessly, is incredibly gratifying.

Oh Weddings

It seems that I have hit the age wherein everyone is getting married. It is difficult to get photos during a wedding that are not overwhelmed by the event, but I was at a wedding last weekend and during the toasts I saw this. I know the mood is utterly contrary to a nuptial celebration, but I was very pleased with it.

I've Started an Etsy Store

After a recent show of my work, it was suggested that I open a store on Etsy where people could buy small prints of mine. So I did.

It's mostly landscapes and still lifes with a few disembodied legs and hands. The prints are 5x7 inches on BFK Rives watercolor paper, which is my favorite: textured, heavy and atmosphere-enhancing.

To keep it exciting, I am going to continually add a new favorite image each month!
