Architectural Photography

 I had the opportunity this month to shoot the historic Newlands Masion for RENO Magazine. This historic home was completely remodeled while keeping the original 1888 style. Down to the detail in the Kalamazoo base burner and Eastlake Victorian chairs this place was a true gem. A warm welcome into the house, “Ladybird” says hi.The entry parlor

The New Tijuana

“From what was a boarded up broken down image of a bad economy, these people are rising like a phoenix in the hidden alleyways below the main drag.”

Lisa Carano

Ever heard of Ferrari Carano Wines? How about The Eldorado Hotel/Casino? If you have, you are probably familiar with the Carano name. You never know what to expect when meeting someone whose name is as common as McDonald’s. I certainly didn’t expect a funny, down-to-earth chick who just likes to cook and spend time with

Yoga de-matted

I love the whole concept of yoga. The breathing, the stretching, the Chi… Having photographed it on multiple occasions, I was looking for a different approach this time. There’s something un-glamorous about someone rolled into a pretzel.. on a mat… on the floor. So I decided to take it off ground and outside to get

Photographing summer in the winter

As is often the case with magazine work, I was tasked with the nearly impossible. Capturing the look and feel of one season, smack in the middle of the opposite season. Luckily, Jana Vanderhaar’s sunny smile, (and great resources), melted the blowing snow and freezing temps outside and we got a great photo of her

Making an outdoor photo studio

This is something I have wanted to do for a loooong time. There’s something about the way natural light caresses the slopes of the face, lights up the eyes so much differently than artificial sources. There’s really nothing like it for a gorgeous, soft portrait. Which is exactly what I was going for with RENO Magazine’s

Artist on Artists

I must admit that I always get extra nervous about being “creative” when I shoot artists of various sorts…and photographing these incredible painters in San Diego got my juices goin’! First was Stephanie Clair, the “Modern Day Romantic Artist” http://stephanieclair.com/ Not only was she beautiful, not only was her work incredible, but she is the mother

Editorial Portrait with a 1936 Mercedes 500 K

In the latest cover I photographed for RENO Magazine, I got the chance to shoot with this incredibly rare and special car. One of only five still in existence, this 1936 Mercedes-Benz 500 K Special Roadster, also happened to be originally owned by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, (The Sherlock Holmes creator) and is worth and estimated
