new business cards! shit just got real …

April 16, 2014



So pleased with our new cards. Foil stamped. Gold and a black that looks more brown than black.


playing with double exposure …

April 15, 2014

Back when I shot Lollapalooza 2012, one of the other photographers was shooting in-camera double exposures of bands he was covering. At the time, they were pretty neat, but my camera didn’t have that function.

My newest camera has this function on it.

On Sunday, I photographed a punk band called The Men. I was a little bored, so I ended up shooting a couple to see how it worked. I’ll put them below. They’re not bad.

It’s a great compilation.

Hey Internet! Black and white or color?

April 12, 2014



I’m not big on black & white, but I’m wavering back and forth on this one.

I’m not sold on the blue either.

I’m not naming the band as I don’t want it to go out too far unfinished.

She’s young, dreamy and fearless, she drives cars way too fast, she’s also a yamakasi. She likes adventure, fireworks and unrelenting seas. From the day I conceived her, I’ve been a worried father. And a proud one too.

How many of these “classic” movies have you seen?

April 11, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-04-11 at 12.50.01 PM


I’m really not one of those social media quiz takers, but this one got me. It’s a list of 200 so called classic films and you have to see how many you’ve seen all the way through.

I got 121 out of 200. Which, there were some of seen parts of, but ended up not being able to finish out of sheer boredom.

I’ve probably seen more of the earlier movies than the average bear thanks to my film background and then an onslaught of Criterion Collection purchases back in the DVD days.

DVD days.

As if they’re dead and gone.

There are many movies that I wonder how they are considered “classics.” By the standards it appears the buzz feed folks are using, there would be a list closer to 400 at least.

But it’s a fun list to remind yourself of some of the movies you’ve seen, loved, hated, or whatever’d.

Go take the quiz here if you’re dare.

I’m photographing Phantogram today. I want to ask Sarah if she’ll flick her hair at camera

April 10, 2014

My photo partner Bill text this morning and said he wasn’t feeling well and if I could cover Phantogram today at JBTV.

I didn’t quickly say yes. We’ve been absolutely slammed. But I made a promise to myself that if Bill can’t shoot, I’m going to shoot every band possible.

But Bill called. And I had to say yes.

More to come!

Zoe got a new West Elm sofa bed …

April 10, 2014


For all of you who want to come stay with us, thank Tina and your lucky stars, we bought a sofa bed.

For all of you who have stayed with us in the past and endured a couple nights on a blow up mattress, go ahead and schedule your next trip. We think you’ll like this better.

Mind you. It’s a sofa bed, and they aren’t a “real bed.” But the mattress on this sucker is kinda thick. And it doesn’t roll into the middle like other sofa pullouts.

You’ll still have to deal with my main work computer, but I think you’ll find it much more comfortable. We went with the chevron, because, well, we could get away with it … being artsy and all.

Now we need to figure out a way to paint these walls the right color. We’re thinking a hague blue.

What do you think?

Katerina Plotnikova poses beautiful women with hand-kissing bears! … and they live to tell about it

April 10, 2014


I love this work from Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikova.

The great thing is, all the images are real. The animals are trained. About the fox above, she says:

The fox, for example, is a real domesticated animal. His name is Adyssey. He has a bit difficult temper, but he is very loved by his owner. All the animals that are in my photo shoots are treated really well. Sometimes, I even think that their owners treat them better than their own kids!

See more images here, like the one I referenced in the title!
