Creative: Have the Guts

Disclaimer: I think I’m about to purchase a Fuji XT-2 and two lenses. Having said this. You have to have the guts. Now, the definition of guts changes from person to person. The best work I’ve ever done came from … Read More

Creative: Paper Mounts

Downtown. 5th and Broadway. Where old friends meet while new talk from the seat. Sun shards off the sealed frames from above. Class and metal but below is the rush of flesh. There are issues here, like the super-low tide … Read More

Creative: A Question I Can’t Answer

This is a ridiculous post, but the idea was floating around in my melon, so here it is. Can someone shoot film and actually work full-time as a photographer? (Outside of weddings.) I’m disgusted by the idea I’m even asking … Read More

Yes, I just posted this on my Instagram feed. It got a few likes so I thought I’d give you the backstory. This project was one of the most enjoyable things I ever worked on. I think about Sicily all … Read More

Creative: The Leica File 27

From the plane window. Some people have done entire books on this view of the world, but for me this represents the rare plane bound image that might actually work. Normally my plane pics are useless reflections. Have a look, … Read More

Creative: The Leica File 25

If you haven’t been to the Palm Springs Photo Festival I just have ONE question for you. What are you waiting for? It’s a festival. Not a trade show, or geek fest, but a real festival about real photography. Projections, … Read More

Have a listen to the backstory that goes with this image and this series. Palermo, Paris, Tijuana and New York. All shot with Ze Leica. Poof I make a picture.

Creative: The Leica File 23

Morocco. The year 2000. An exploration. Thousands of k’s in a Fiat Uno with no air conditioning. Deserts, isolation, literature, friends and even an illness or two. Retreating from France. Landing in Rabat then aiming the tiny white hood into … Read More

Creative: The Leica File 21

Wanna go behind the scenes in Del Mar? Okay, let’s go. Early morning warmups in the back stretch. High octane blood and thunder. Walking quietly, looking for something just above the average. That great invention, chain link, right up there … Read More

Creative: The Leica File 20

Okay, I’m back. It’s back. The Leica File. You asked for it. I’m making good on my promise. The truth. Haven’t used the Leica in ages. Haven’t used ANYTHING in ages, except for the x100T, but that’s just for work … Read More

Street Photography

Read: My Lost Rolls

Yep, that’s me. Mid 1990’s. Flannel shirt, long hair, Canon EOS1v, wire rimmed glasses. A walking billboard to the grunge movement. Pearl Jam was my favorite band. But why am I showing you this? We recently embarked on a collaborative … Read More
