Upcoming Events!

When I planned out what I wanted my career to look like, it didn’t just include photography. That idea has been growing over time, though with no less love for the photo craft and simply more love for other things. Isn’t it amazing how with age our capacity to love grows, as does our desire […]

Before They Pass

This is a very personal sentiment that I want to share, in the hope that the basic idea of it will inspire someone else. This past year has been a bit different for me, in that I’ve had some difficult ideas of my own that I’ve had to spend time thinking about and dealing with. […]

What to Do When Your Boat Won’t Float

When I was teaching on creativeLIVE I shot a boat in the studio. We couldn’t turn all the lights off in the studio so the subject and boat had a lot of unwanted light on her, and I was a bit confused in editing about what to do with the shot. It is neat on […]

Shooting in a Challenging Situation

The 5th episode of the Framed Show’s “The Concept” aired recently, which features myself and powerhouse photographer Lindsay Adler duking it out to see what we create with the same location and concept. During this episode we were challenged to shoot at Coney Island and our theme was “twins”. I adored this day like no […]

Finding Inspiration & Motivation in the Face of Adversity

This week I received an email from a most beautiful soul, asking if I would write about the topic of how to find inspiration when life is getting you down. I’m extremely empathetic and I take on others pain and joy very easily, and after reading her email, I cried for her. And if I […]

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 […]

8 Thoughts That Motivate Me to Chase Success

1. Redefine Success. Do not allow the meaning of success to be reduced to money, fame or possessions. Do not allow the magnitude that is success to be diminished by believing it is only for a select few. Do not allow success to slip through your fingers because you believe you are not deserving.

Yes, I Like My Pictures

Somehow it can feel naughty to say that I like my own pictures. Have you ever felt that? That you would somehow be perceived as not being humble, or being narcissistic, if you said that you love what you do? I don’t love every single picture that I take, hence why I only show 50% […]

Speaking at Country Day School

I had the great pleasure of visiting my home town to give a lecture. While I was there I taught 2 workshops, and after that I did a lecture at a high school. I’ve never lectured ¬†at a high school before, so I was a little bit nervous but mostly excited to donate my time […]

The Concept: Episode 1 – Entrapment

How do I begin to describe this experience that I had, week by week, when looking back on it now the whole time we spent together feels like one run-on sentence? The time I spent in New York was, quite nearly, indescribable. Some back story…I have worked with the Framed Network several times in the […]
