Creative: The Journal

This is how I use the FujiRoid. In some ways this work is actually the most important work I do, but consider this before you go judging. I don’t do ANYTHING with my photography. Haven’t for years, so not like … Read More

Creative: The Fuji File Magazine

The first issue of “The Fuji File” is here. This isn’t the OFFICIAL copy just yet but the test copy is in the bag. I’ve created upwards of 220+ publications with Blurb, dating back to 2007, but I still make … Read More

Creative: Second XT2 and 50-140 2.8

Bought a second XT2 and 50-140 2.8. A little background. The Fuji XT2 is the first digital camera I’ve had that I actually really like. I got my first digital camera in 1997 and was shooting assignments with it within … Read More

Creative: The Fuji File Three

Yep, I took a selfie. In my own defense it was during test mode. Trying to figure out what all the buttons on the XT2 are actually for. Do you know this camera has autofocus? Wow, news to me. So … Read More

Creative: A Special Moment

I was invited on an early morning boat trip down the coast. The reason for the trip was very personal and not something I want to share here, but I do want to share a few of the images. I … Read More

Creative: Killing Time in San Francisco

Not really. I dream about killing time, but rarely get the time to do it. I was in San Francisco for work, completed a short portrait session then booked over to The Mission to see some old friends. Creative friends. … Read More

Creative: Finally, a Selfie

Yes, I’m doing selfies now. Lots and lots of selfies. It took me years, and I had to print it first before rephotographing it, so it’s a super slow selfie, but it’s a selfie nonetheless. I am my favorite subject … Read More

Creative: Newport Journal April 2017

He smelled like cheap cigarettes. He angled too close to my personal space. A screw head. For sure. A younger, tag-along brother with a cell phone blasting Italian TV tunes. But they weren’t Italian. Neighbors most likely. He immediately gets … Read More

Creative: Newport Journal

Couple of old friends in town yesterday. Some of you might recognize them. Just strolling at sunset so we could talk photography, equipment, books, equipment, photography, equipment, gear, but primarily we focused on keeping to the topic at hand. Equipment. … Read More

Creative: The Fuji File 1

I know what your thinking. “What the f%$# happened to the Leica file?” Don’t fear my brass loving friends. The Leica File is alive and well, but I wanted to expand horizons today. You have seen this image before, so … Read More

Read: The Lost Rolls Paris

As the sun rises on Armistice Day here in France I wake thinking of last night’s event. “The Lost Rolls” Paris exhibition, fittingly held in a unnamed space in Le Marais, was the first European opening for the collaboration between … Read More

Read: Paris Journal

No this is not me. My colleague Kent who is an artist who happens to work at Blurb. Paris College of Art. FLUX Tired at 11AM. Reading at 3AM. One of the worst nights sleep I’ve ever had. Mid trip … Read More

Apparently there is this thing called “weather.” Apparently it’s not supposed to be sunny every single day for the entire year. Apparently “weather” has moved into the area. Consequently, the locals are hidden, birds spontaneously give up and fall to … Read More

So my wife had a show. In other words the world stopped, tilted on its axis, wobbled, and then began to make corrections. It was only the most important show in the history of humankind. She’s been working on a … Read More

Read: Newport Journal

Yep, this is how it’s all gonna end. A giant red fireball. Megaton warhead. We melt into a fleshy puddle and then find out our entire solar system is a microspec on some space kid’s snotty pillow. Damnit. All these … Read More

It has been a long, long time since I’ve been able to do any serious biking. A few short years ago, prior to landing Lyme Disease, I was a decent biker. Now, not so much. Any ride requires weighing the … Read More

Read: Newport Journal

Home together. First time since September. Weather rolling in. Ultra-low tide, heat, humidity and a Pacific of near glass. Neither of know what to make of it all. Wide expanse of beach, high clouds and a peaceful openness that connects … Read More

Just like that. Fall. One day. All it took. The turn. Even if Mother Nature decides to play her new game it doesn’t matter because mentally the switch has been made. Dusk and your jacket is in the car, or … Read More
