Exploring sunny Cambridge after visiting Kettle’s Yard a few weeks ago.

The idea of continuous learning / education / curiosity.
Of seeing a bridge between the domestic and the artistic in a very real way.
Of sharing that with others… students, strangers, friends.
… Some of my thoughts after visiting Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, England. I went last month with my friend Charlotte on a sunny day trip from London. I had tried to make it there for a few years but always ran out of time. We spent over 3 hours in the house, looking at all of the artwork and objects, sitting in the chairs, reading the books in the library, learning a lot of new things (and snapping a lot of photos).
You can read more about Kettle’s Yard here. It left quite an impression on me. And not just ideas for decorating the home, ya philistines. (although that’s one way to look at the space)
More photos from here soon…

In early May, Sean Hotchkiss and I spent a couple of mornings in Maine visiting some guys and documenting their morning routines for Harry’s Five O’Clock Magazine. I love Maine, so this was a real pleasure.
We had the opportunity to photograph my good friend Christopher David Ryan (affectionately known to his friends as “CDR”) and capture his morning routine. As I expected, it’s slow and and easy, beginning with some yoga or stretching, followed by eggs and coffee, some sketching or illustrating, and then some music. Above are some photos from our morning – see the entire feature at Five O’Clock Mag.
I’m really happy with this ongoing morning routine series – we’ve photographed a few guys recently and I think the features are pretty fun – be sure to check them all out.

Hey hey, it’s my first cover photograph!
I recently photographed friends Greg Buntain and Ian Collings (the talented duo behind Fort Standard) for the cover of Intramuros Magazine May/June issue. A few of my photographs of Greg & Ian and their work were also included in the story itself. Glad to see these guys receiving more positive press, and I’m psyched to be involved.

Well, hello. It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I just returned from 2 weeks in the UK for a shoot and some travels. I’m planning to share a longer update here in the next few days but in the meantime, I wanted to share some recent work that I’m excited about.
I photographed author Michael Cunningham’s favorite things for the Wall Street Journal Magazine’s May issue! Michael was such a nice guy and it was an honor to meet one of my favorite authors. I was also very psyched to work with Damian Prado & the photo team at the WSJ Mag on this.
I’ll be back here with a proper update soon, and a new series of personal photos that I shot in England very recently.
