PERSONAL WORK – 2018

Followers of my blog know that at the end of each year I pick a series of three personal images from a non-assignment single location.

2018 was another amazing year. I split my time between Washington, Oregon, California, and Mexico. I made a film, wrote a short story, and contributed articles and photographs to multiple clients. I’m thrilled to say that 2019 looks to be more of the same.

These images were shot with a Leica Q and DJI Mavic 2 Pro in Los Cabos, Baja Mexico.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

THE BEATLES “WHITE ALBUM”

50 years ago this week The Beatles, better known as “The White Album”, hit record store worldwide.

After Rubber Soul and the artistic heights of Revolver and Sgt. Pepper, The Beatles followed up in 1968 by forming Apple Records and releasing a double LP that would go on to become their biggest seller.

Sporting a clean white cover and featuring only their embossed name and a serial number printed in gray ink, The Beatles was a strong departure from what had come before. More

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEIL AND JONI

Yeah, it’s been awhile since I posted some tunes.

They’re all personal and hopefully a bit soulful. I spent a few coins at the jukebox over the years on these two.

EARLY 911 HEADLIGHT PHOTOS

Happy Halloween!

Thanks to Editor Pete Stout and 000 Magazine for the opportunity to photograph a feature on early Porsche 911 and 912 headlights.

Writer Mark Morrisey made the call, and expert collector Eric Linden provided the hardware. I shot everything in a mini-studio set up specifically to reduce reflections, yet still provide a controlled highlight. Thanks guys, that was fun!

EVERYBODY LOVES A PARADE

Porsche Club of America recently published my images in Panorama Magazine, with their coverage of the July 2018 PCA Parade in Missouri. The lead fireworks shot required a bit of pre-planning and a dash of luck and quick setup to capture.

Thanks to all for a fun time!

NOTHING IMPROVES SUCCESS LIKE PERSISTENCE

Edward Weston’s Pepper #30 is the perfect example of what it takes to achieve perfection (it’s #30 for a reason). There have been multiple occasions where I have returned to a location dozens of times to achieve the desired result. Professional photographers continue to exercise this principle (even with Photoshop).
