My friend Blair is a wonderful human being. He is also an incredible artist. He currently has a show up until Feb. 28th at the Sacred Gallery in NYC of his Pyrography called "Build Tall and Save Our Land. It really is worthy of seeing. 424 Broadway 2nd floor inside of Sacred Tattoo.
I have been fortunate enough to shoot with my close friend Bella Vendetta for about a decade. We got together recently and made some magic with her persona Bubbles the Clown! Bella Vendetta is a world class Dominatrix, Pornstar, Model, and Sex Educator. It's people like her that inspire me to photograph every day. Someone who doesn't live inside the social norms and is willing to push the boundaries of what the majority find appropriate. Thank you for another amazing shoot Bella!
I very recently helped my wife launch her new beauty blog Faceless Beauty! She will be doing product reviews, experiences, and experimentation with all sorts of beauty applications. I have been doing the main photography for the site which we have determined will have the theme "Dinosaurs wearing makeup". Here are the first two in the series. These were styled by the amazing Elizabeth Van Dyke Leifer. I'm very excited about this project and wish my wife well on her beauty explorations! Faceless Beauty is part of the major global consortium known as Faceless Conglomerate Inc.

I recently had the oppurtunity to visit the enchanting Muir Woods in Northern California. It is literally a magical place. I'm not sure if it is the immense size of the red wood trees or the fact that they are extremely old, but there is a calm that hits you the moment you enter the park. This panorama was taken with the new large sensor Ricoh GR with a 28mm fixed lens. I was on the upper path looking down into the valley and the trees were still so tall around me I could barely see where they ended. I look forward to being able to go back and visit again.
