Navajo Beauty

Date: September 27, 2014 The visit to her hogan was part of a tour. I was overwhelmed by her dress — why can’t more of us wear such bright colors? To take this photo, I literally got down on my knees (I am 6′ 6 1/2″). Her expression seems to change every time I look […]

Date: March 15, 2015 I found this gem next to the parking lot in Limestone Canyon Wilderness Park. The flowers are blooming earlier than usual this year. In a few weeks, this patch will be brown and forgotten. I shot it with a 200mm lens.

Newport Beach People

Date: March 21, 2012 No one in bathing suits this day — wind was blowing hard. A week later, the climate was temperate. I love the afternoon colors. This is better than Golden Hour in my opinion.

Skull Face

This was one of my first photos taken with my Lomography Fisheye Number 2. The model was preparing for a Halloween shoot — the makeup artist is in the back. I think it makes for a better photo than it would have been without the artist looming in the background.

Quail Hill

  I took this through a plastic sandwich bag to give it a dreamy effect.  The location is a small nature preserve near the City of Irvine.
