young mothers and the children they bear.

this is sarah and her son elliott. "young mothers and the children they bear." will be the working title of a new series that I started today. being around young parents as of late has opened my eyes to a world that I know little about. I have a new found admiration for young parents, so I figured that it would be a great concept to explore, photographically. the exact direction of this series is unclear at the moment, i'm just along for the ride.  

assisted by: drew & josh, thanks for helping keep my gear dry.

YO! my new band is playing our 1st show (as a complete band) this saturday. 

MC Supernatural

I shot a few portraits of MC Supernatural last night at his loft.
He has a gnarly figurine collection, some of which you can see in the photos. We discussed a future shoot, possibly including his collection. But for now, here are these.

sf bangers.

I flew my gf and I up to SF for our 1yr anniversary/NYE.
It was good time. We stayed with my best bud, Mike "D!SHRAG" Law. He has an awesome apt above a mortuary, its rad. Here are a few of my favs from the trip.

chinatown, sf.

on a recent trip to SF, I decided to take photographs of people without them knowing. in order to keep my presence unknown, I shot all of these images from waist/stomach level, without using the viewfinder. as a result, many of these images are crooked, out of focus and awkwardly composed. however, I feel that this was the only way that I would be able to capture "real expressions". most of these were shot in chinatown.

Live Shots

I started off shooting nothing but concerts, but as of late iv'e mainly been shooting promos. So when I was hired to shoot some live shots @ the glasshouse, I was more than happy to mix it up and shoot the show.

Bella Rouge

So Iv'e started playing/making music again. I'm playing drums for Bella Rouge.
I'm pretty stoked on this. It's nice to make music when i'm not making photographs.
Anyways, here are a few photos from a recent promo shoot I did for us.
