Darkroom, 2017

Quite possible to jumble up the word, bathroom, and turn it into a darkroom these days.

Been a bit of a cloud over my vision these last few weeks. Not quite tears; more like hot, sweaty blood that's run into your eyes from some cut?!

Quite divorced from reality; I'd wish it never on a mortal enemy...but I have none.

Drawing and painting again; you're going to see me in my true form now one way or another.

Proof of Life, 2017.

Times like these I wish Gene and Nona were on Instagram. I'll never stop dancing; I'll be laughing to no end.

Sorry this is not for you right now. Given every allowance and all the means, please do sit on it for awhile.

Scientist Eric Horvitz for Popular Science Magazine

I recently photographed Eric Horvitz, Technical Fellow and Managing Director of Microsoft Research Studio in Redmond, WA for Popular Science magazine.

While the assignment from Thomas Payne, Photo Director at the publication, dictated that the shots focus on Mr. Horvitz being rapt in conversation in profile as the tearsheet demonstrates, I got some great shots of a relaxed genius talking about the direction our lives will take as a result of artificial intelligence.

Adam Selipsky for Tableau Softwar

I was humbled to be enlisted to photograph the news that Adam Selipsky, formerly of Amazon, is taking the reigns at Seattle-based Tableau Software from co-founder, Christian Chabot.

Having had the fortune to photograph both gentlemen within the last year, I took the relished the task of fashioning an image that showed both poise and grace.

Lighting the form

I love light and relish making men and women feel confident and elevated through my portraiture.
