I like what I can't see

These are only two of a series that I have been working on. There are more to come...but I am hesitant to post too much because if you really want to see my work you will just have to come to my show on March 1st 2010!

I have been faced with having to come up with a thesis. I do not have one yet. These are studies that I have begun working on, I guess that they relate to my previous project of dreams which eventually turned into nightmares, or maybe they were all along. regardless, these are just what they are for now.

Congratulations to the Twentyten!

I shot this look a few months ago for the Twentyten's lookbook and the clothing was recently worn by Keri Hilson in the music video for "Everything, Everyday, Everywhere".
Love you guys!

Julie Mollo's first fashion show!!!

Julie Mollo is a fabulously fun designer and classmate of mine who has been featured in Nylon magazine and her designs have been seen on celebrities such as Katy Perry. Last week she asked me to come and take some shots at her first fashion show and I was happy to oblige. Here's a look at what I got!

The Twentyten

A few weeks ago I shot some PR material for my friends and designers the Twentyten. I have been really slow at posting them, but here's a few that I messed with a little in post. You can check out their stuff at

Loving You

I guess I am a little homesick.. Which in no way means I am unhappy, I've just been feeling rather nostalgic lately and feel like paying homage to those that I love. I am constantly questioning where I want to be in fear of missing a moment, thought, whatever.
Like most people, I love looking through old family photographs(I don't just love to, I am relatively obsessed). I am sincerely and genuinely happy with photographs sprawled out all over the floor, maybe this is why I chose to be a photographer....So on this beautiful spring day in Brooklyn, I want to be reminded of my family in Seattle. These are just a select few pictures I had time to scan the last time I was in Seattle. I love old photographs of my mother, she looks so beautiful! She still does!

Records of Radiation

These photos are from a recent series I began based on imagery from dreams I have recorded. They serve as sort of an afterthought in which I, as well as others, are able to analyze the origin of the imagery...As, I am unaware of the reasons why I dream what I do.

Preview of The Twentyten look book

I recently shot the look book for Nina Zilka, David Krause and Jeff Dodd's collaborative clothing line The Twentyten. I am thrilled with the results. Their designs are fabulous and innovative which in all made my job as the photographer ten thousand times easier. Thanks so much guys for asking me to shoot!
Here's a preview of a couple shots.

What you lose

These are a couple shots from my botched shoot with no sync cord for the strobes. They were for my 60s project and I think these are interesting shots. Thank you so much to Ana for modeling for me and putting up with these technical difficulties. Carianne, as always you an amazing help.

The last time that I attempted to shoot I was unfortunately put at a great disadvantage. When I checked out my strobe kit I assumed that it would have been checked and I would be assured that the proper equipment would be inside, I was wrong. I brought all this damn equipment home and up my 4 flights of stairs, which is not easy when you have a bunch of torn ligaments and cartilage in your wrist....I had everything set up and my friend who I hardly see had come to model for me, except the sinc cord was missing... This meant that everything I had checked out in terms of lighting would be of absolutely no use to me. I shot anyway, and am hoping there are a couple shots that I can manipulate in post.
I am shooting today in the studio and am praying that everything goes well. I even did little painted sketches for the basic premise of my shoot. Wish me luck!

New Projects

Here's a combination of medium and large format projects that I have been working on the past few weeks. Briefly, the color ones of the blond are medium format and for a project I am working on inspired by 60s icons, fashion, movies, interior name it. The black and white and color ones with the brunette are large format and are more aimed at conveying a quietness or subtle attitude femininity and sensuality...

Non Silver

I finally have some scans of the work I did in my non silver process class this past semester. This group of work feature examples of multiple alternative print processes such as; cyanotype, van dyke and salt. By alternative process, I mean that it is an alternate to the traditional silver gelatin print which is standard for black and white darkroom printing. Using specific chemical recipes, we mixed our chemistry and applied it to gelatin coated, cold press water color paper, on which we then placed 4x5" or medium format, black and white negatives. Once we had secured the negatives on the chemical emulsion, we inserted them in a UV light box for exposure (if weather permits, you can also you the sun for exposure and it is twice as fast). Once you have your exposure, the time depends on the process, there are new sets of chemistry which you immerse you exposed paper in. Essentially you are making complicated, but attractive contact prints. This class was extremely tedious, but gratifying when the results were good.
