Walking on Walls

On January 1, 2010 I visited a ghost town. It was a space used for movies a few decades ago, built to resemble an old western town. I was inspired, hugely, by what I saw, despite knowing that it was all crafted to look a certain way instead of evolving organically. It was old and […]

When Elements Collide…

I created an image at the start of this year that inspired me. The concept behind it really intrigued me, and the technique was not something I had played with before. Since then I decided to continue creating images like this, and I have found a wonderful fascination with it. I hope to get more […]

“Les Mis” Texture Pack

While I was in England I got to teach workshops at the same location that the movie Les Miserables was filmed, and I was so inspired by everything I saw…including the textures. On my second day of teaching there I decided to run around with my camera and capture some of those lovely textures so […]

For the first time in about 3 years I decided to plan a trip home to visit family just ’cause. And then I was asked to deliver a lecture in my hometown, and I started getting really excited about being able to share what I do with the people who I grew up with. I […]

To Jen – With Love, Your Fan

I am far, far more likely to follow someone’s life and career if they are passionate rather than if they are technically good at what they do. This goes for anyone, working in any medium, whether it relates to my interests or not. I have happily found several people that fit this bill, and as […]

Shooting for Lucy Schwartz

Towards the beginning of this year I was asked to shoot for singer/songwriter Lucy Schwartz to give her some artwork, and that is exactly what we set out to do during this shoot! We shot in an abandoned building complete with a big train, smoke bombs, lots of butterflies, and a beautiful crew. My good […]

The Howl of Wind Through an Open Door

The other day, while looking through my computer for a file I thought I had lost, I happened upon pictures I had taken during my New York workshop in April. It’s funny, I find myself often forgetting about pictures if I don’t edit them immediately, and it isn’t because I’m not passionate about them. That […]

Creating a Mermaid, and Teaching It, Too!

I love mermaids. I love tension. I love anything abandoned. I love flowing gowns. I love water. Needless to say, I was very excited about this picture. Last August was when I first thought about creating this picture. I had the general idea of wanting to photograph a mermaid in a fish tank in an […]
