The F Word

If you’ve ever read my blog before you know how I feel about the F word. I don’t say it, don’t believe in it, and don’t think you should either. Failure is nothing more than an opportunity awarded, a chance to be something more than what you are, a second chance. Failure is being given […]

Underwater Inspiration

My passion for underwater photography lies in the simplicity of the image, yet the complications of the setup. There is a lot of time and effort that needs to go into underwater shooting, from putting your housing together (I use Ikelite, which is thankfully super easy to use) to making sure the model is okay, […]

My Time in Dubai with Gulf Photo Plus

My greatest talent is my belief that all things are possible. Any photographer out there can pick up a camera. Anyone can download Photoshop and press the buttons.

Seeing Red: Underwater Fine Art Nude

Underwater photography has grown from a curiosity to a passion in the last few years. I wanted to challenge myself in a way that would really test my boundaries. I wanted to photograph a location that was more otherwordly than the places I had been shooting. I wanted to capture the true feeling of weightlessness. […]

What’s In My [Think Tank] Bag?

So, this is happening. I am writing a post about…don’t say it…equipment! I rarely talk about equipment or technical aspects of photography unless I am answering specific questions on Formspring. That said, I have been asked a fair amount about equipment and I thought it would be fun to share some pictures and my personal […]

I just posted a big shoot that I did for a company pitching advertising ideas to the HBO show True Blood. You can see the pictures and read about that adventure in this blog post. Here are some more photos from that shoot. I thought the models did so well for having to grasp on […]

True Blood Spec Shoot

Back in September last year I was contacted by a company called A Squared who pitches media to various entertainment entities in order to get hired to do advertising. In my case, they were pitching a shoot to the show True Blood in order to try and clinch the advertising gig for the new season. […]
