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 […]

Into the Earth

I went out shooting at such a beautiful location. I have been inspired lately by two things: creating something out of nothing with little to no budget, and working in nature. I often go back to themes that I have for my photography: nature, surrealism…and see how I can experiment with those themes. Theme can […]

Dreaming of the Past

Fairy tales are very close to my heart. I sometimes feel as though I live in one all the time, or at least when I remember to. It is so easy to let negativity flow into our lives as though it were natural, but when we stop and remember that our lives can be exactly […]

The Swift Travels of Wind-Blown Sails

First thing is first…I have always loved Jonathan Swift. I remember having a literary crush on him the first time I read “A Modest Proposal”, and

Magic & Sorcery

In a time not our own, in a land foreign and familiar, in a state of mind reserved for sleep walked a waking girl with magic and sorcery. Her travels led her to a palace of nature filled with rumbling storm clouds and bright light all in one, filling her with expectations of magical things. […]

A Fresh Start

If one thing is true about photography, it is that it allows us complete creative freedom to represent the stories we want to tell. We create because we have something to say, whether it is personal, commercial, or otherwise. In creating, we let our stories loose on the world. We put ourselves out there to […]

Shooting “Waiting to Fly”

  I was waiting and waiting for an overcast day because I’ve had the shooting bug lately and I sometimes get impatient waiting until dusk to shoot. Alternately, I get tired waking up at 5am to shoot in the morning too, so an overcast day was just what I needed! I had some work to […]

For the love of…

We all know the feeling of getting negative feedback on a picture. You spend lots of time creating something, you’re proud of it, you show it off, and then BOOM…”I don’t like it” or “I don’t get it” or “I don’t something something something”. It is only fair after all that we get a range […]

The Salton Sea & Sand Dunes

I went away last weekend to visit the Salton Sea, a little known AMAZING place southeast of Los Angeles. The sea is dying, and the fish that were carried there from the Colorado River died and can now be found in the form of bones on the beaches. Abandoned buildings abound and the entire area […]

The Joy of Nothing

The things we can do with $5 and a little imagination are plentiful. The things we can do with so little are incredible. The things we can make out of nothing astound. We call ourselves creatives, and sometimes our actions show that more than others. I got to thinking about what makes me tick, the […]
