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% […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Almost Circus and Invisible Audience

Sometimes, we just have to push ourselves. One day I was looking through my portfolio and feeling like I wanted to do something out of the ordinary. I started thinking about things I had never done before: techniques, colors, anything that would present a challenge that I could run with and have fun. About 2 […]

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 […]

Creating “House of Floods”

Three years ago I did a practice run of this image by taking a picture of my walls and then finding a stock picture online of the ocean. I composited them together very crudely and the whole thing looked like a mess. I tried creating this picture 4 more times after that, and each time […]

A Tale of Two Self-Portraits…in India

Self-Portrait #1 It was my first day in India. I went on a walk with my friend Amy Parrish who had also never been to India and was eager to explore. We set out on foot down the neighborhood streets. The sights were many and as overwhelming as it was calming. Things were strange yet […]

The Tide that Takes Us

The most beautiful thing has happened in my image-making life, and it has nothing to do with business opportunities, awards, exhibitions or success. It has to do with something entirely more important: creating. At the core of what every artist does is to create from the raw and unprocessed material that our imagination conjures up. […]

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. […]

Series: “Frozen in Water”

This shoot is all about beauty in darkness. The water, the unknown, and the beauty of diving in head first. I have a fear of water, so participating in this shoot as a model was a challenge for me, but one that I would do again and again. The end result speaks so much to […]
