My Kitchen

So we have this Solarium in our Kitchen that I’ve been eyeballing since we moved in, but have never shot in. Susanne and I were bored the other day so we decided to give it a whirl and wow! I’m pumped on it… it’s like a little natural light studio with 180 degrees of light.

Canvas Prints… Finally!!

It’s been a long time coming, but Susanne and I finally printed out some canvases to hang up around the house… just the first part of a full-fledged picture project we are working on. We even got some canvases printed out from our wedding, which was shot by the one-and-only Jay Reilly (Thanks Jay!). Most

Hey all… gonna get back into a personal project I started for myself a year ago… simple concept: high contrast studio portraits. Gonna let it morph into whatever comes out of the shoots… just flow with it. Got an interesting grill?? Hit me up

Don’t Think… Shoot Stupid!

In an ideal software development lifecycle, they say there is an 80/20 split: spend 80% of your time designing the solution (thinking), and 20% of your time building it (doing). Now… maybe I can blame it on the engineer in me, but I would be lying if I said I hadn’t heard the phrase “Stop

There is certainly no shortage of fire when Susanne and I go camping with our friends… whether it is being twirled, hooped, staffed, spat, or just cooking some hot dogs.

Twisted By Design: A Photo-Tale with Adelaide Marcus

Hey all! Just finished putting this spread together from a shoot we did last weekend, which was an absolute blast. Thanks to Adelaide Marcus, Daniel and Jake for all the help and creativity! It’s a photo-tale: Girl meets boy and they find balance and peace, in the most unlikely of circumstances.

Testing with Cat

Hey all… thanks for stopping by! Wow, what a kick ass Valentine’s weekend! Susanne and I charged down to Coronado with our bikes and charged all over the place… then capped it off with a very festive movie, Friday the 13th! :-\ What can I say, we are die hard romantics! Also managed to squeeze

“Hey Susanne… Wanna Go Take Some Photos??”

What’s better than a Las Olas breakfast torta and 5 bloody mary’s on a Sunday morning?? Pig-doggin’ a 5 ft stormy, sand-dredging bowl at Ponto Jettys, of course (for you non-surfers, that’s lingo for getting a nice barrel ride)! But until the back gets a little more R&R, a stormy, cloudy photo shoot is pretty
