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.
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.
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.
Our big & dramatic, land & skies.
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.
the lines and colors, freshly made, one of a kind light at night.
Cars, my favorite things.
Sidecar, one of my favorite themes . . . constantly looking for an interesting moving vehicle, going the other direction.
The houses in the neighborhood I grew up in during the 70's & 80's.
Scenes from a Spy Novel in my head.
Scenes from the neighborhood I grew up in.
Pedestrians around town.
There is something very powerful of one faceless figure in a scene.
Pairing up imagery to string along an imaginative story-line gives me pleasure - playing along the lines of a reoccurring dream.
Little paintings roadside.
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.
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.
