Music that is AWESOME that you might not know about:

I’ve always surrounded myself with music – in my primary school days I was buying cassettes and records and would sit at home and just listen and digest all these forms of music; from rock to new-age to film soundtracks to rap – I would just absorb it like a sponge. And that has never changed and there isn’t a time when I’m not listening to music. I recently brought a record player and all my records to my photography studio so I can spin while I’m working on client images, and I always have a playlist going when I’m photographing someone or something.

I’m not in any way a music critic, nor do I contain a music critics vernacular, but I thought I’d mention a few artists/albums I’ve been playing a lot lately and maybe find some new ears and make them a few new fans, because they are all awesome.

Lauren had wanted to work with me for many years but it was never the right time until recently when she needed an updated headshot for her business and LinkedIn pages.  But as you can see from the image above,  this session became much more than a headshot session.

Playstation Clock

tick tock, tick tock

A little while ago I went through a “turn-it-into-a-clock” phase. Darkroom timer? Make it a clock.  Vinyl record? Make it a clock. Old Playstation console? Yup. Let’s make it a lock.

I now have no problems knowing what time it is in the studio as I’m surrounded by make-shift clocks.

I thought the red hands were a nice touch in my honest opinion. 🙂


Cosplay Saves The World • Hippo March 1 2018

I’ve read and collected comic books my entire life.  I pretty much learned to read when I was a tiny person by trying to figure out words in the balloons on comic pages.  There is a special place in my heart for characters like Green Lantern and Green Arrow and Airwave and Iron Man and many, many, many more.  So many.

When the Hippo phoned me up asking if I would photograph some local cosplayers for a cover story I practically jumped through the phone with an excited YES!  The paper scheduled four cosplayers to come by the studio one evening so we could make some images that would be featured on the cover as well as serve as the main story for that issue.

Random Access Memories

Daft Punk

Spent some time with my Daft Punk action figures and some small LED christmas lights.

I recently picked up their album “Random Access Memories” on vinyl.  I have the cd, but the vinyl release sounds so much warmer.
