There is a lot to say about baseball. For one thing, plenty of my pictures a day come from local games. But more importantly, baseball in it’s purest form is can be a metaphor for life. Look at this picture. Isn’t this what baseball is supposed to be about? Isn’t the passing of something from […]


I was listening to a little bit of Jazzfest from New Orleans yesterday via the internet on NOLA.com. I used to live in New Orleans prior to the storm, which is what we call Hurricane Katrina. It made me a little nostalgic. I started thinking about what it was like to live there and how […]


I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase that getting to the heart of something is like peeling an onion. Sometimes, it’s just not that hard. I was unpacking some groceries when an onion fell out of the bag and bounced on the floor. Off came the outer skin. I picked it up and thought, ” ah […]


So far, I’ve been mostly posting from Picture A Day 2008. I thought, since it is the start of a new month, that I would show you a picture that I made in the last 12 days. There are a couple of real nice frames tucked away in the general nonsense of what I’ve been […]

Most of them were either for their “Condensed” series or for their large trade books. They’d give you a shoot list that number in about the hundreds of locations […]


This week’s big project is working through my travel files and editing images of street food. It seems to be a popular subject with agencies and clients so I thought that I would build a small collection of images that could be displayed on my website and distributed through my agencies. Fortunately, I’ve photographed street […]


I spent a good amount of time this morning updating my website with a new gallery called “Experiments Around The World.” It’s mostly about testing different processing techniques. Normally, my work is very colorful (some say too colorful), bright and energetic. This new gallery tests more muted and subdued color pallets as well as a […]
