Catching up on Photography

It happens to the best of us, those of us who labor to maintain a personal website: with so many social media outlets around, sometimes the personal blog is the last to receive some love. I used to have plugins here that would automatically repost my posts to whatever site I wanted – but then I started using sites that either don’t play well with repost plugins, or I simply didn’t want to have the same exact content on each […]

New Photoset – Tipper Show at Red Rocks

In May 2015 I was invited to take some pictures of my good friend Dennis Bunton, aka Ion Driver, who was opening for one of my favorite electronic music producers, Tipper, in a show at the incredible venue called Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. After connecting with the show’s producer, he decided to offer me one of only three all-access photography passes so I could shoot the entire show – and I had a blast! The venue is on a […]

Road trip – recap

Being on the road means you never know what twists and turns will come your way. This one was no different. Our first true outing with Adeline, our popup trailer, yielded some rookie mistakes, underestimates, and other unpredictable results – and we still had a grand time. For more photos of each leg of the journey, go here. For the post about Day 1, go here. Day 2 – Santa Cruz – nostalgia on many levels Day 2 for us was an […]

Road Trip!

Ever since we were gifted a popup trailer last year for our wedding, we’ve been wanting to take a proper road trip with it. Our popup, Adeline, has taken us in style to a music festival and a destination wedding, but we’d been wanting to travel with her for pure camping pleasure, with no stimulating social events driving the experience. Of all the destinations we discussed, the one we kept circling around was to drive up into Northern California and […]

New photoset – Bell Island, VT

Ah, summer. Living in Southern California, sometimes it feels like summer is perpetually here, so it’s refreshing to get out and see other parts of the world which DON’T have the privilege of mild weather year-round. This past July I had an opportunity to join some friends on a privately owned small island in Vermont, in the middle of a huge lake called Lake Memphremagog. Right up by the US/Canadian border, it was truly a departure from the chaparral and […]

New Photoset – 4th of July Fireworks!

A friend invited us to come take in the fireworks from a deck right on the ocean in Malibu…there was a barge that was anchored off the shore, just in front of us, so it lent itself to a phenomenal front-row-seat perspective. I played around with exposure settings so I could paint with light on some of them. Inspiring! Head over to Flickr to see the whole set.

New Photoset – Hawaii 2012

Recently I took a vacation to one of my very favorite spots on the planet: the Big Island of Hawaii. Having lived there briefly in 2005, I have always felt like I’ve left a piece of my heart there; when the oppportunity arose to take my beloved there for his first time and share with him the places and environment that I held so dear, I jumped at the chance. He further surprised me with a marriage proposal (which I […]

October Roundup of DJ & Photo News

It’s hard to believe the end of the year is right around the corner! I’ve had the pleasure recently of immersing myself a bit more in photography, but there are a few groovy DJ gigs coming up too that should be a lot of fun. My general tendency with photography is to shoot places and animals, rather than people and events, but lately I’ve been trying my hand a little more at capturing events as they unfold. And so, I’m […]

Photoset: Moontribe ~ 18 Years Strong

Recently I gave myself the chance to immerse myself in photography while camping with several hundred of my closest friends. Our community, Moontribe, celebrated its 18th year of existence with a joyous festival of a Full Moon gathering. Dancing, reconnecting with old friends, making some new ones, cooking up a storm, lounging in the sunshine…it was all there. This is our church in a way, and I can’t think of anyplace I’d rather be.   Usually I’m behind the decks […]

Joseph Chad Hill, 1979-2010

Joseph Chad Hill: A Photography Retrospective

A dear friend and fellow photographer, Joe was remarkable for not only his eye, but his entire philosophy of making every day of his life count. He knew his time was limited, due to a degenerative condition; his gusto for exploring new realms was commendable. Most recently, in October/November 2010, Joe returned to Ghana for the fourth time, to capture its essence and to bring back hand-carved djembe drums for good friends. Shortly after his return, Joe’s health declined rapidly […]
