AMBROSIA

Being camped at Champagne Lounge in the Middle of Black Rock City certainly has its advantages. There are tons of people that walk down our street “Rod’s Road.” I was able to just hang out under our shade until someone who caught my eye walked by and I would go ask them for a photo. This chick looked totally cool. …

DREAM

The Dream sculpture by Laura Klimpton and Jeff Schomberg. This beautiful piece graced the playa this summer, but found it’s home just a few miles from my house here in Arlington, Texas. I love that there is a piece of the playa so close!

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 …

MEDUSA MADNESS

The MEDUSA MADNESS sculpture was one of the coolest things at Black Rock City this year. It took the crew all week to get it together, but it really put on a show after the Temple burn on Sunday. Because I was in the neighborhood of Center Camp, I saw this thing coming and going several times a day as …

CROWNING EMBRACE

This was one of those times that you realize you don’t know what is going on at Burning Man, you only think you do. I doubt there has ever been a bigger daytime burn, as this one was done just after sunrise. I was there with plenty of time to spare and all set up. Unfortunately, a gigantic art car …

THE DESERT DWELLERS

I’m getting really excited for my 5th Burning Man in a row. Nothing I’ve found so far has been a better place for taking photos. There is just so much to shoot and the light is like no other. I’ll be heading to Venice Carnival early next year. I’m looking forward to seeing if it even compares.

THE NIGHT COLORS OF NEVERWAS HAUL

One of my favorite parts of Burning Man are the Art Cars and Mutant Vehicles. These artist bring imagination and mechanics together to create these unique cruisers. Part tractor, part train, part Victorian house and all steampunk is the great Neverwas Haul. I’ve seen this vehicle the last few times I’ve been and it is still a favorite to behold. …

EMERGING FROM THE DUST

It was a brutal one at Burning Man in 2014. There were several very hardcore dust storms throughout the week. While most people seek shelter, I seek dramatic photos. I thought that with this having been my 4th year, I was a real pro. I didn’t use my dust mask as much as I should have and paid the price …
