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 […]

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 […]

Shooting for Vogue Italia

A while ago I was contacted by Vogue Italia to shoot a story for them, and these are the results – shot March 2012. It was an interesting day – I had 45 minutes to shoot 12 images and I had food poisoning all day! A story of princesses who no longer have lands to […]

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 […]

Capture Inspiration Retreat!

I have been thinking long and hard, for the last year or so, about what I want to put into the world. How do I want to interact with others, and what message do I want to put forth? These questions were fairly easily answered, but putting them into motion took some jigging. Teaching is […]

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 […]

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. […]

New Series: “Fears & Fairytales”

Sometimes creating less is creating more. After looking deeply at my creation process and deciding to take a new road, this is where it has lead me. I have started two new series of images, one which I will write about here, and another that I am saving for a later date. The first of […]

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. […]

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 […]
