A caught moment at a rehearsal of my Cosmonaut Comedy cast mate Brittany. These are my favorite types of shots: a caught frame, Lightroom touched up, but largely real and minimalist. Just the camera, me, her, and slight touch-up.

Been a while, I know, but June may have been my busiest shooting month to date and I have the latest comedy show for the Cosmonauts Sketch Comedy Troupe as well, so I’ve slipped as far as posting.

BUT…I have some nice pieces to show for it.

Sometimes a quick off the cuff shot presents itself and comes out great. Sometimes we plan heavily and put in a lot of work and it’s…eh. This was the former. My spouse and I were at a film shoot in L.A. in April and I’d gone to collect or dispose of something, and when I returned I saw her gazing out the 40+th floor of the Bank of America building. Quick snap or two and boom.

(The film was “When the Train Stops” which will be coming out later this year with Darren Jacobs as well as Vic Mignogna (Star Trek Continues), Rekha Sharma (Star Trek Discovery), John de Lancie (Star Trek TNG), and Michael Forest (ST TOS).

Sometimes I wonder, as I think all artists do, why we bother doing what we do. Does anyone really care one way or the other?

Then I see a moment like this. A souvenir of a proud moment for father and son sitting in front of a photo I made a year ago as they’d practiced, framed and part of an important memory for the two of them. I am grateful and humbled to have been permitted to witness and capture this moment for them.

THIS is why I got into photography.

THIS is why I pick up the camera.

 

Hi!

Made some changes to the site layout as part of a reorganizing process. I just found the colors on the old one to be distracting. This is more in line with my preferred photography philosophy (more on that later).

Now here’s a landscape on the way back from Miami (Arizona, not Florida. I KNOW…I had no idea either).

This little guy came to visit yesterday morning. He’s actually very brave as he often gets closer to the ground and the cats eye him like the flying snack he could be. I’m pleased that s/he, or one of his/her ilk, have regularly come back each year and often swoop down to hover and say hello to me.

This one continues to be a favorite! Earlier this month I entered a competition at 5th Base Gallery in London. There was 1 winner, 5 finalists, and 14 shortlisted artists. I was one of the 5 finalists with the above image. Woot!
