I recently had a fun shoot with Jill Vialet, the CEO and founder of Playworks. How could it not be when the founder’s organization partners with schools to promote exercise and social and emotional health through recess, and the shoot is on a school playground? Jill was game for just about anything and the location was perfect. Check out some outtakes and tearsheets below.
This past weekend was spent shooting the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca, primarily to photograph the U.S. debut of the GT-R 50, Nissan’s one-of-a-kind, $1 million sports car, of which only fifty will be made.
Photography: Action and behind-the-scenes at Sonoma Raceway
I had the fantastic opportunity to cover the 2018 Shell Eco-Challenge at Sonoma Raceway last month. The four-day event was a competition between college and high school engineering students to design, build and race the most fuel-efficient vehicle possible. The top winners of each category - electric, gasoline and hydrogen - proceeds to the big race in London later this year.

I'm quite jazzed with my latest printed promo mailer piece, "Pictures of Home." The images were created over a period of years without a final purpose in mind. However, after a recent second look at these images, I discovered that many spoke to me about how "home" can sometimes contain ironies and contradictions.
I designed the 12-page tabloid in InDesign, with final touches by fabulous graphic designer Tanyia Johnson. Printing was completed by Newspaper Club on 95gsm bright newsprint. They do a great job, are very communicative and have a fast turnaround, especially for a company based in England.
Have thoughts or improvements you'd like to share? I'd love to hear them!
Until the next press run,
A recent commission to create fresh imagery for a Houston-based non-profit organization allowed me to see first-hand how refugees are being helped to establish themselves in their new country. Plant It Forward serves mainly Congolese refugees by allowing them to farm unused land in urban areas while letting participants keep all their profit. Farmers sell their fresh veggies at local farmers markets as well as farm-to-table based restaurants.
The images were used to build a new website, create print collateral and for social media publication.
I'm proud to present work I recently completed for a large chemical company. It's always an adventure suiting up in fire-retardant clothing, steel-toe boots, gloves and safety glasses and venturing into the maze-like catacombs of a multi-billion dollar chemical plant expansion.
The scale of the project is awe-inspiring and I'm amazed how over 4000 people show up to work every day and bring such an enormous project into reality. Visually, it's always fun to get this close to the action, something most of us don't have the opportunity to do. The geometry, symmetry, and the amazing way everything visually fits together into one delights my eye.

It's taken a while, but I was finally able to get my hands on some tear sheets for an assignment from last year. I really enjoy photographing children (I'm somewhat a big kid myself). Their humor and energy can really bring an image to life. For this shoot, we hired a team that puts on science shows for grade school kids. They brought the colored liquids and dry ice, the kids brought their spirit, and I brought my camera. I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do.
