At some point I stopped using a camera to document what was right in front of me.
There are a good handful of models and stylists I get to call my friends.
So much for El Niño dumping rain on Los Angeles this winter. I had high hopes for these great shoots in the rain but came to the conclusion that shooting in the rain isn’t all I had hoped it would be.
As I look back at 2015 it will be defined as the year I spent in the water. Having ponied up for a professional grade camera housing for my DSLR it opened up the possibilities of what had been fun experiments to full-fledged commercial shoots.
As with any new piece of equipment I like to spend enough time using it so that when it comes time for a commercial job I am familiar with the issues and know how to overcome them.
I love being in the water. Long showers, the ocean, the pool…whatever. It makes me feel alive. When I get the opportunity to mix photography with something that makes me feel alive the results are usually special.
