Long days of driving open up the possibilities of stumbling upon that perfect haphazard assemblage, that special ray of sun, the fluffiest cloud, the saddest tree. I never stop. I shoot while driving. Road signs become paintings, police cars become toys – everything becomes simple, cleansed of over-detail and shaped softly with buttery-like watercolor.
A life-long ongoing project. My wife & i named it "Juniper & Joshua" -40 acres of pristine juniper & joshua tree filled high desert Earth, located in Pipes Canyon California. We plan to slowly add a few more structures, a garden & Wendy would like some chickens and a horse someday. A girl can dream.
Moments Merge is a collection I have been putting together for the past 18 years, pairing images together to bring a unique moment, creating a fresh, imaginative story line. An almost cinematic door, opened to wherever the viewer ends up pondering at their first glance .
I get asked to shoot portraits once in a while. I like to use a backdrop or a prop element to help bring a bit more insight & shine of the personality of the subject or a character they may play in their movie.
a collection of short films made over the years.
Another obsession of mine. In the next life i hope to be a truck driver.
Scenes from a Spy Novel in my head.
The massive & dramatic, land & skies.
The houses in the neighborhood I grew up in during the 70's & 80's.
Pairing up imagery to string along an imaginative story-line gives me pleasure - playing along the lines of a reoccurring dream.
the lines and colors, freshly made, one of a kind light at night.
I was asked by our friends Brooke & Randy Hestor, whom own this incredible winery in Napa Valley, if they could use an image of mine for their new line of wines. I said yes, of course, what an honor.
I'm completely enamored by flight.
"Extreme Turbulence" is a collection I started in 2002, shooting self-portraits on commercial flights . I wanted to create a series of moments in the air of a person thinking the plane is going down . I will wear similar clothing each time I fly to give the series a bit of consistency, but with each new flight a unique look emerges & my appearance as well as I get older.
One of my obsessions, photographing this exits road signs at 60 mph, on Interstate 15, driving north and south past it every month or two.
Cars, my favorite things.
Sidecar, one of my favorite themes . . . constantly looking for an interesting moving vehicle, going the other direction.
Scenes from the neighborhood I grew up in.
Pedestrians around town.
There is something very powerful of one faceless figure in a scene.
Little paintings roadside.
