ALEX RELAXES

Alex and her mom came by a few weeks ago to help me test out my new V-flat that I set up in my studio. Everything worked like a champ, from Cher doing her makeup to how amazing the lighting looked as we shot. Alex had never had her photo taken by a professional outside of school, so she started …

RELEASE THE KRAKEN

Here’s another photo from this year’s Burning Man. I’m presenting this art not how it appeared on playa. Originally, it was surrounded with a fence of sorts that had cranks to make the mechanical squid move it’s tentacles. It was a pretty time consuming undertaking, but I’m happy with the results. I removed tiny sections at a time in order …

LAUGHING TWINS

It was a crazy weekend on this existence we call Mother Earth; Paris terrorist attacks, Beirut suicide bombings, a Hurricane in Mexico, earthquake in Japan. I feel like posting a photo is the least significant thing I can do, but I really don’t know what else to do. I took a little camping trip this weekend with my buddy Casey, …

REVOLUTION NOON

This is Marco Cochrane’s third and final installation of his Bliss project called R-Evoution. It continues the theme of a woman expressing her humanity. I’m always amazed at the engineering that goes into these projects. This one is 48 feet tall and actually breathes! My campmates Edin and Jaci are in this photo. They had a really interesting week, but …

A VISIT TO GALATEA

Mono Lake is one of my favorite places that I’ve visited in my short photography career. It’s what I imagine a landscape on another planet would be like. It’s a large, shallow saline soda lake in Mono County, California, formed at least 760,000 years ago as a terminal lake in an endorheic basin. The lack of an outlet causes high …

BRAINCHILD SUNSET

The massive sculptures that artists bring to the desert never ceases to blow my mind. One of my favorite pieces this year was Brainchild by Michael Christian. Not only was it visually stimulating, with an incredible concept, but it was completely climbable as well. I spent one night chillin’ with my Champagne Lounge campmate, Noel, up in the ‘brain’ part …

THE WINGED ONE

Wow, it seems like just yesterday was my first Burning Man. It’s weird to think that my next will be my 5th time to go. It is kind of surprising how many pieces of art make return appearances every year, yet there will always be something new and amazing. Getting great photos out there is almost too easy. You can …

POISON IVY

I really enjoyed having my portable beauty dish with me during Dallas Comic Con 2014. Everyone that I asked were happy to get their photo taken with the unusual contraption. The beauty dish is mounted on a carbon fiber monopod which makes it easy and light to carry around. It also extends to the perfect length for using my 24-70 …
