The moon was very nearly full, and our household collaborative juices were flowing. One kid noted the dramatic combination of cloud-wrack and moonshine, another observed that there was a dusting of snow on the trampoline, and yet another suggested that some photos with that moon in the background might be quite striking.

Whether you were taking stills or shooting movies, you […]

He REALLY likes to dance, but is quite indifferent to the musical genre outside of dance, and also isn’t especially driven to perform for others. So getting photos of him dancing isn’t always […]
In our busy world, it is often a lamentable fact that I only get to spend a short time with someone I photograph. I have the privilege of working with many fascinating people, and often end our working hours together wishing I could get to know them better. With Rei, it happened. This photo, and […]
