Belize.

After driving back across the country from East to West once I was done working for the summer I had the chance to go to Belize and it was unreal. The place is magical and the Caribbean Sea is incredible. I spent five days there before heading back home to reality here in Los Angeles…. Read more »

Recent work for the ongoing “Car” series.

I’ve been working on this series for a few years now. It started naturally from an interest in the visual lines and details in older cars and the series has grown into its own form at this point. At some point along the way I’ll actually get into the full project details as eventually the… Read more »

Nashville.

I recently flew to Nashville for the Imaging USA photography show and to meet up with the Paul C. Buff crew and it was a quick but solid trip. If I had enough time and patience at the moment I would explain how it didn’t go nearly as planned in certain ways and went exactly… Read more »

2018.

If you haven’t seen the car series yet on my site it is because I’ve kept it fairly low-key the whole time it has been published. I have been shooting for the series for years now and it is slowly coming together. The look, vibe and feel is intended to be very consistent so things… Read more »

Latest
  • Updates.

    I’ve been working on a few new projects for ESPN and Red Bull that should be seeing the light of day within the next month or so. It is always interesting working so far ahead on projects and having to wait until they go live to share them with everyone. A brand new gallery for… Read more »

  • Last light in Joshua Tree.

    This was one of those moments that felt like forever but in reality lasted less than a minute. Landscape photography inspires so much of my work and myself in general. I truly believe that I could shoot beautiful landscapes until the day I die without ever being over it. Until the next one.

    I have been busy lately working on a variety of projects as I always seem to be. The only way I know how to push forward is to keep it moving. I suppose it makes for an interesting way to live but when you are pursuing goals on a daily basis life seems to be… Read more »

  • Downtown Los Angeles.

    I had the opportunity recently to work with one of my favorite models who happens to be from Ukraine. She is always down to shoot and work on new projects and has a look that you just can’t deny. We shot in an empty parking garage at dusk and even caught a few photos on… Read more »

  • Venice Beach, California.

    You meet some wild and strange characters in Venice and that is always a guarantee. When it comes to photographing people I invest a lot of time and energy into breaking down the barrier and gaining trust from my subjects. This truly helps to get a genuine connection and it is always surreal to me… Read more »

  • House Fire.

    The other day I happened to be on my way to Santa Cruz, California for a weekend of shooting when I realized I forgot my battery chargers. Luckily, I wasn’t too far from home and just quick hopped off the 101 and headed back. When I was about to take a left to go to… Read more »
