Because it looks like Science

Because it looks like Science

I have a field day in science labs. All kinds of beakers and test tubes and hand written notes and formulas on white boards and note pads. After the portrait session is over with the science guys, I get to make pretty pictures that say, important things happen here. Or not, maybe they are just pretty pictures. But they are…
Rome, a beginning and an end

Rome, a beginning and an end

From 2007 to 2011 I spent late August to early September in the very hot and muggy city of Rome. My mission was to teach photography to design students from the University of Washington.

In a simple world

Some days I get up and wonder what to do today. There is nothing pressing on the calendar, lunch with a friend. That's it really. Yes, there are a million things I should be doing or ¬†working on.
