Meluxine – Looking Inside

  Meluxine – Looking Inside You know when you’re having one of those days when everything you touch turns to gold? They don’t happen often, but when they do, the feeling is extraordinary. Meluxine and I were definitely having one of those days the first time we ever shot together. Even the, this probably won’t …

Anne Duffy – Crown of Shadows

  Anne Duffy – Crown of Shadows Anne has one of the most beautiful faces I have ever come to know. I’ve felt that way since before I actually got to work with her years ago. Her portfolio is full of some of the most striking images I’ve ever seen. All week we’d been talking …

Jessamyne – Dressed to the 9am

  Jessamyne – Dressed to the 9am “You know, if you grab a handful of those sheets and pull, it creates some really beautiful lines,” I suggested to Jessamyne. And we were off! I love it when an idea like that just kind of presents itself. She began to play with various way to pull …

Claudine – Isolation

  Claudine – Isolation Claudine is simply wonderful to work with. Beautiful, with complete excitement and joyful enthusiasm. Claudine is 100-percent all in when it comes to creating something interesting. I’ve never seen her in a bad mood. I mean, I’m sure she has them. We all do. But I’ve never witnessed her in one. …

Christian – Hands that Hide

Hands that Hide I really didn’t understand until the midway point of my shoot with Christian, but it was to become one of the more profound shoots I experienced in some time.

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 …

Tara Tree Subterrane

  “Is it too dark to shoot in here?”, asked Tara Tree, as we were exploring one of the Kauai caves during a location scout one afternoon. “No, I think there’s enough light. If I bring a tripod and do longer exposures,” I said, as my eyes began to slowly adjust to the darkness. I …

Jessamyne Morning Shoreline Surprise

 Sometimes you get surprises. Jessamyne and I were up early, shooting along one of the shorelines on the north end of Kauai. I had picked the location because of the beautiful exposed tree roots due to sand erosion over the years. Quite striking. And we did two setups along the shore there. Both beautiful. We paused …

Photo Daily: Melissa Resting Beauty Face

  I made this photo of the lovely model Melissa Troutt when I was photographing her along with another model. It was one of the few times I arranged a shoot with models I didn’t know in advance. Melissa belongs to a network of freelance art models who tour the globe making art with hundreds of …

Photo Daily: Jamie Pinnacle

  I’ve been having a wonderful long distance email conversation with a good long time friend of mine the past few months. On one of our many discussion tangents, I was telling her about how my photography has been a living timeline of the people and places in my life the past 25 years. I’ve …
