Oakland/San Francisco, California
A place to share the works that inspire me.



I took a little time today to shoot something new. This cast of a monkey skull I got from Blake Britton, an artist I photographed in Portland. I wanted to continue with the series I've been pursuing called Dichotomy however I don't think there is anything I can add to this series without becoming redundant. Onto something new it shall be. This is the last image I'll be posting for a while. I have to take sometime away from shooting to focus on marketing new business, print a new book and update my website. See you somewhere.



In 2004 I took a cab from North Beach to Noe Valley with Tyler and Megan. There was something about that cab ride that I really loved. My guess is the speed we were traveling combined with the revelry earlier in the evening made such an impression on me. This is my homage to that night and to one of my favorite landmarks in San Francisco.



1. division into two parts, kinds, etc.; subdivision into halves or pairs.
2. division into two mutually exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups: a dichotomy between thought and action.
3. Botany. a mode of branching by constant forking, as in some stems, in veins of leaves, etc.
4. Astronomy. the phase of the moon or of an inferior planet when half of its disk is visible.

I've been conceptualizing, art directing and shooting this series in tandem with my on going series dealing with white noise and visions. I'm proud to collaborate with Kristin Gerbert again. She's always been a great to work with and create around. She's also a photographer and speaks the language.
