Joey’s Portraits

A handsome young man, Joey had a little portrait session a few weeks back and these were some of my favorite from the shoot. He looks good as a little businessman!

Harry’s Portrait

A longtime friend of the family, Harry was in need of a new headshot and this was one of those candid captures that you get in between posing. This shot reminds me of the image of Winston Churchill by Yousuf Karsh when he just yanked the cigar from his mouth and captured that astonishing portrait. That story always makes me laugh, and reminds me how much I have to learn. I don’t understand how the masters got sooo good at what they did, the lighting techniques and knowledge of  photographic processes. We have unlimited resources with global connections and I still can’t take in all the information I want. I’m overwhelmed with all that I don’t know. Makes my head spin and my imagination race. Someone should feel my heartbeat.

Kodak Jiffy

One of my favorite stops along my drive from California to Texas. It’s in Junction when i change highways and I always stop to check out this old barn. I am borrowing two old cameras from Christina’s mum and shot this with a folding Kodak Jiffy and a modified roll of 120 film. Apparently there are some very serious light leaks…

Glassjaw-17

Glassjaw

Glassjaw was amazing in San Antonio, They gave out their new album “Coloring Book” for free after the show as well. Sooo Good!

 

Idaho Steelhead

Tamarac Resort by Holga

We just got back from a trip to Tamarac Ski Resort in Idaho. My camera was in the shop so all I had with me was my trusty Holga. It was a beautiful resort with a lot of hidden treasures. The resort went bankrupt and is currently being run by the Home Owner’s Association, and is pleasantly populated by about 150 residents. The lines are non existent and the skiing is fantastic.

Christmas in Santa Barbara

This was our apartment in Santa Barbara the last Christmas me and Amy spent there. If you look closely you will see a few mugs full of marshmallowy hot chocolate..

Moonlit Sands

Scanning in lots of old negatives from the old days in the desert.

Death Valley Dunes

I found a folder of recovered images from  an old hardrive, this dune shots was one of the gems hiding among all the corrupt and unreadable files. Glad I took one last look through..

Salzburg Castles

Salzburg

The view from above the castle grounds, there was a terrific christmas market in the middle of all of it with violinists and choir groups singing christmas carols in German. It was fantastic!

St. Stephens

St. Stephens Cathedral in Vienna had too much space to capture, gorgeous gothic staircases and chandeliers, stain glass windows with such amazing saturation in the glass

Bakery In The Alleyway

Les Affiches

This was a great little bakery/cafe off the main road that had fresh bread and very comfortable lounge chairs

Carousel

One of our wandering nights in Rome, found this carousel next to the river
