New Zealand Surfing Day Trip

I recently had 2 huge jobs which both happened to bring me to New Zealand for shooting. We had a brief day with my fantastic assistant Maxy where he took us to an incredible black sand beach north of Auckland and we took a break from the crazy job and spent the evening surfing. I […]

Australian Desert Landscapes

By in Landscape, Travel

I know that I haven’t been updating my blog very much lately but it’s because I’ve actually been pretty busy and unfortunately many of the jobs that I’ve been working on have confidentiality agreements that don’t allow me to talk about the jobs until several months after I’ve shot them. But I’ve got loads of […]

Tasmania / Smithsonian Magazine

By in Editorial, Landscape, Portraits, Travel

I was recently asked by the American publication The Smithsonian Magazine to shoot a cover story featuring Tasmania and Tasmania’s world famous MONA Museum. I was asked to document Hobart, shoot the Mona museum and some portraits of its notoriously camera-shy owner David Walsh and then afterwards make my way up to the Freycinet Peninsula […]

Last month Monocle Magazine sent me up to Australia’s Northern Territory to cover a story on their burgeoning capital city, Darwin.  Darwin has become big news in the last few years as the United States has promised to begin stationing several hundred troops there in an effort to re-establish a naval presence in that part […]

My trip to the Badlands

By in Landscape, Recent Work, Travel

Last week my girlfriend and I made a trip out to the Badlands with some close friends and slept among buffalo, antelope, elk and rattlesnakes.  We ate a lot of travel food and did a lot of hiking to work some of it off. People in South Dakota make great pies.

Australian Trip

By in Documentary, Landscape, Lifestyle, Portraits, Travel

I just got back from a month in Australia. Every year I make it a point to leave Chicago for at least 3 weeks or so during the winter. The Chicago winters are cold, harsh and blue and by the time February rolls around everyone in the city is so depressed they act like they […]

November Road Trip, Part 2

By in Documentary, Landscape, Travel

Nothing but driving. I had the best beef jerky I’d ever had in New Mexico- it was as thin as paper and covered in dried chillies. For 3 days it seems like I ate nothing but that green chili jerky and looked at mountains and desert. By the time I made it to L.A. I […]
