Big Images and Small Cameras in the City

September 8, 2014 | 2 comments

I’m not sure I need too many reminders about why I have enjoyed the switch to a Fuji system so much. I have outlined many of the reasons in previous posts, and now I find myself in Brooklyn to shoot a wedding, and I am reminded once again of why I wax so poetic about […]

When the Best Camera Bag Isn’t a Camera Bag

October 8, 2013 | One comment

I have recently rekindled my love affair with small, mirrorless cameras. I can’t help myself, they’re irresistible. I have written some about it before, and I have a good deal more to write about it soon, but right now I’m still in the process of collecting data: photos, impressions, annoyances, joys. Consider this partly a […]

Context and Scale

August 6, 2013 | No comments yet

I just got back from shooting a wedding in California, and had some time afterwards to drive up the coast and see some of the sights around San Francisco. Over the years and my visits to the west coast, I have often struggled with the scale of the place–I have lived my whole life in […]

Photographers Photographing Photographers

July 25, 2013 | 2 comments

I just flew across the country again, so forgive me if this blog isn’t 100% coherent. It’s been a long day, and it’s 3am east coast time. I’m here to photograph a wedding of a friend and photographer this weekend, and had some time to reflect on the flights over, without the usual distractions of […]

Mirrorlessness Blues

May 10, 2013 | No comments yet

I may have made a mistake. It was calculated, rational, carefully thought through, but still, probably, a mistake. At the beginning of the year, I started focusing on trying to make at least part of my living from photography. Really, I wanted more time to focus on, and think about, making good photographs and seeing […]

On the Road Arterial – Scenes from Interstate Five

March 8, 2013 | No comments yet

On the West Coast, when you’re trying to get from point A to point B with relative efficiency, chances are you’ll spend some time on I-5 (especially if you’re headed North or South). Cities like San Francisco, Sacramento, Portland, and Seattle are all strung together by this pretty ordinary, businesslike highway. With family and friends […]

The Glasgows – Bay Area Family Photographer

March 5, 2013 | No comments yet

In the middle of 2012, the Glasgows packed their bags and said goodbye to Brooklyn, New York, their hometown of many years, and set a course for the the opposite coast, landing in Oakland, California. Since I was visiting (and being graciously hosted by Amanda, Andrew, Leo and Jacob), they wanted some updated photos of […]

Seattle, Washington

February 19, 2013 | 2 comments

I’ve chosen Seattle as the next installment in my trip blogs, for no particular reason. It is a vibrant city, full of colorful and interesting neighborhoods. It is close to the spectacular Olympic Peninsula, and not a far drive from the San Juan islands. It is a city divided by water. It is the home […]

Snapshots of the West Coast

February 5, 2013 | No comments yet

Every trip I take, I make a point to use my cameraphone as well as the DSLRs or whatever other, more “professional” camera I have with me. I’ve made my position on using whatever camera you have at your disposal pretty clear elsewhere in my blog, so I’ll stay off the soapbox here, and instead […]

Adventures on the Olympic Peninsula

| No comments yet

For days I’ve been wringing my hands, starting and re-starting blog posts. Organizing thoughts, shuffling, organizing anew. There is a bigness to this trip I’ve just completed. There are a multitude of photos, of experiences, of personalities. I’ve decided to start with the Olympic Peninsula. It’s not chronological, and I don’t care. When I originally […]
