Meluxine – Contemplate Your Fate

I was catching up with Meluxine the other day. And we both agreed that this shoot, our first time ever collaborating together, still remains one of our favorite shoots either of us have been a part of. I think we had been reached a place in our respective work that needed a refresh somehow. Going back to remembering why we loved to do this kind of thing in the first place.

Carlotta Rocky Point

  Carlotta has the most infectious enthusiasm. About whatever she happens to be doing at the moment. She’s good energy. Carlotta was tagging along the morning Anne and I were discovering the magical tree overlook. Every once in a while, when Anne needed a short breather from climbing all over that tree, I’d turn my …

Anne Duffy Overlooking the Edge

  I’d love to take credit for it, but Anne Duffy is the one who spotted the tree first. A beautiful tree. And like so many trees on the island of Kauai, the erosion from years of the ocean doing what oceans do, left a stunning series of twisted roots in a way that made …

Photo Daily: Anne Duffy Leans on Chair at Casa Dracula

When I met her, six months later to finally get my wish, I was rewarded to know the witty, creative and intelligent woman behind the beautiful photos. Anne is fun! She did not disappoint. Anne has, in addition to her …

Part 5 of 50: The Ocean and Ella Rose

This is part five in a series of blogs on my recent artistic adventures in Mexico. In preparing for ZoeFest, we all would have to find our way up the Pacific Coast of the Baja Penisula to Todos Santos from the Cabo San Lucas International Airport. That meant renting cars. Two days before I was to …
