The past few months have been full & busy with work and travel. After almost 3 weeks in London in January, I was in Canada in early February, and then a week in Mexico. In April, I flew to Austin for a weekend with friends, and directly to the mountains of North Carolina for a week-long shoot. After that, it was a trip to Salt Lake City for a shoot there, and then a big shoot in NYC for Matter–Made (more about all of this soon). In May, I spent a few days in Maine and then I traveled to the UK for 2+ weeks for a shoot there. And exactly 2 weeks ago, I was in Germany for a quick shoot.
All of this travel is very cool (it is also very exhausting). I brought my point-and-shoot camera with me on these adventures, taking snaps along the way. Above, I’m posting some of those photos and I have more to share this week. I’m finally back at home for the next few weeks and I couldn’t be happier. Stay tuned for more posts, some links, and hopefully some new music.
Summer is here; I’m feeling good.

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.
