Iconic Race Cars
Race cars have always represented art to me; it is just convenient that they are fast as hell and tear your ears out in the process.
If it wasn’t apparent in the recent article I wrote on the television show “The Newsroom,” let’s just say that I have a strong fear that we are letting technological advancements hurt our true quest for knowledge.
Sushi… who doesn’t love it
Many years ago I was visiting with Bill Stockland, an artist rep and friend of mine.  We had toured his office and then found ourselves in the portfolio room where I looked over the work of Walter Iooss.
American Bladerunner
With the Olympics upon us, I wanted to take a moment and talk about one of the most unique athletes I have ever photographed, the American Bladerunner, Blake Leeper. He will be competing in Rio for Team USA and is an inspiring young man.
A Photoshoot for Dad
Firstly, hello World. It has been quite some time since I have had a chance to sit down and write a bit, but in a way, that is a good thing as I have a lot of new images to talk about in the near future. Today’s photoshoot is one that supersedes them all, as it is one that near and dear to my heart.

The last three weeks have been an exercise in distance, for the last year my life has existed at home.

Photographing on a TV Production
Some aspects of photography are easier to teach than others; photographing an advertising campaign alongside of a TV production is not one of them.
Get Well Sig
While enjoying my morning read of the internet, I saw something that worried me, a photo I shot. It was of Captain Sig Hansen from the Deadliest Catch, and the last time I saw this was when it was when we lost Phil.
I have tossed around writing this blog a lot over the last 24 hours. One part of me wants to hold true to the motto “if you have nothing good to say…..”
The life of an advertising photographer is one that involves travel, lots and lots of freakin travel.
A Farewell to Mythbusters
It was the first shoot I ever went after. I made deals and fought hard to get my one chance to photograph Mythbusters. It was less about the photography and more about the opportunity to be a part of something that until that time I existed only as a viewer.
