inspiration 2

Chris Orwig.  Santa Barbara train tracks..2008

Sometimes all you need for a bit of inspirtation is to look back on old images and think about the day that you took them.  This image of friend and teacher of photography and life Chris Orwig was shot while he was setting up a portrait of Joe Curren for his new book.  Chris was kind enough to bring me a long to watch him do his thing and help out.  My goal was to be sure the type 55 polaroids didn't get run over by the train and keeping the lightmeter handy.Needless to say a train came and blew them all away, but we found them!..If you get a chance, take a look at his site and see some of the work he's created.  One of my biggest inspirations in the photo world and world of life.

Sunday football with Quik and Balaram

Balaram Stack Quik ad from Mexico...I still like the Chargers more.

hawaii time

I apologize for the lack of updates lately..It's been a very busy week in Hawaii since arriving just after Thanksgiving.  I worked on a really cool shoot for Quiksilver with some of their key surfers as well as a campaign for a new headphone company which should be out next summer.  Shoot all day, edit all night..A lot of images, a lot of editing, no complaints.  For now I leave you with this image from the first day I arrived. Big, North Swell Pipeline, 3 guys out..Howling North East winds.
