San Diego Magazine
To counter rumors that all I do is climb mountains and shoot tattoos, I thought I'd show you a couple of portraits I made recently for San Diego Magazine's article on leaders of tomorrow. On the left is Christopher Yanov who works with inner city youth, keeping them out of gangs and helping to send some to college. On the right is Lihini Aluwihare, a Marine chemist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the youngest professor the institution has ever had.
San Diego Magazine has been a client of mine for years. They were one of the first mainstream books to hire me when I was starting out. I've repaid the favor with several awards for photography which my work has won them. Shooting for San Diego Magazine, I've meet some of the most interesting and influential people in the local community.

San Jose

I recently spent a week in San Jose. The main reason for the trip was continuing photography on the BloodWork tattoo book with Adrian Lee of Analog Tattoo. The photo shoot was timed to coincide with The San Jose Tattoo Convention. I spent the whole convention locked in a posh loft that we converted into a photo studio. Over the four day convention I shot over forty sleeves for the book. Along with the book shoot, Analog (where I work as the in-house photographer) threw their one year anniversary party. Experimental jazz band, Panthelion, rocked the house. And a good time was had by all. The lion’s share of the photography now complete, the long and complicate post production process begins on the book. The goal is to have the completed tome available by October of next year.
