I don’t often do figure work, but occasionally the inspiration occurs. Throughout the history of photography nudes are a well traveled road making the subject an intriguing challenge to create work that speaks to the heart while being unique and consistent within the work that I do.
Last month I made the difficult decision to put my loving dog and inspiring muse down for the big sleep. Earlier this year, Leica, the dachshund /min pin mix had surgery for two herniated discs – that’s when the cushions between the vertebrae turn sandy and mineralize. The surgery was a a financial and […]
Equestrio, a beautifully printed publication based out of Dubai, asked me to locate and photograph Arabian Saluki dogs in America. Not an easy task since very few are in the bay area at all. Happily, I managed find just about all of them and bonus points go to Tesse, the Saluki who had […]
See more of my horse / equestrian photography here.
Last week I got to photograph a donkey in the studio. Since I’ve often photographed horses on location in studio settings, I was thrilled at having a small horse in my studio without the confines of a barn like location. I just completed a video shoot for Bidawee, a […]
I always enjoy testing with new subjects that catch my eye and when I saw Duke, the afghan hound, in my neighborhood, it was a classic scenario of ‘excuse me sir, but I must photograph your dog. I think I even used a British accent due to a wave of […]
I did some work with an Los Angeles based agency a while called Boom Bang. They asked me to do some images of flowers and vibrators for a Trogan pitch they were working on. I recently went through the files looking to build a new image for that incorporated my still life […]
This image came about both to fill a need in the portfolio as well as a recent art show at project one in San Francisco. The original image was photographed against white and while liked the image a lot, it needed something extra to pull it together. Without the art […]
I was recently asked to photograph a horse inside a showroom, the client, Coup d’tat, is an interior design showroom that features an visual ethic that I like to call ‘steampunk meets industrial design chic’. However, while the white bookshelf in the image is more Kubrik than Steampunk, I feel […]
I recently asked Kevin Rose if I could photograph his labradoodle, Toaster, here in the studio. Toaster is a bit of celebrity since he was just voted cutest dog in 7×7, he made a great model and I’m pleased with the evolution of this look for me.

A personal still life study of dried kelp, I love the anthropomorphic qualities.
The Bideawee pet services shoot was great fun. With 25 models in 2 days between people, dogs and cats, the studio was a zoo! Not to mention simultaneous video during the stills – wow, did we just do that? Special thanks goes to Carmel Cottingham for pulling off the production without […]

It’s been a busy month and I’m excited to share new work, though I can’t always publish before a clients had time publish themselves. So in this case I’m sharing a quick image of my location kit – neat and tidy this is the stealth version of the to-go kit.
Square – the little device that let’s you accept credit cards via iPhone by the founder of twitter. The people at Square contacted me to illustrate a limited edition version of the product featuring the double Happiness hexagram. This what I came up with for them and I had a […]
I’m very pleased to have an image chosen as best of show in the upcoming APA/SF holiday exhibit and party! This image is of Neo, the Trakehner, in a gracious bowing pose and a good to know side note is that white horses are actually referred to as Grey. The […]
This just in from a recent shoot.
The exhibit was a hit! The people were great and I sold half the show! What a night!
I’m pleased to announce that I’m headlining an art show of my new floral work on Wednesday September 22nd from 7pm until midnight. The show is at Project One, an art gallery wine bar with a dj lounge (that means dancing too). Project One is a newer space in Potrero off […]
It’s great how life creates new passion directions. Since getting a dog 2 years ago, I’ve found myself taking pictures of other dogs as well as mine, many of which have have worked their way into my portfolio – with a few dog related jobs along the way : ) […]
Last year I was asked by the Compassionate Eye Foundation to participate in their Los Angeles based shoot. The CEF is an charitable fund raising organization founded by Robert Kent that produces pro-bono images that are sold through Getty Images. I was happy to play a part in this well […]
A true classic, how can I resist the subtle curves and gentle grace of this beautiful chair?
My new sassy dachshund min pin mix, Leica (like the camera) who hasn’t gained a full understanding that she’s a dog, tho I’m sure that’s not the fault of her parenting..
I’m pretty sure these are poppies, they’re endearing to me the way they hang down as they age, creating playful random shapes.
