I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with these in-camera double exposures. Not relying on Photoshop or any kind of digital manipulation to create the raw image has made me feel like I did when I only shot film, the fun uncertainty of it all, the “not sure what you’re going to get” surprise. What do you all think? Care to see more?

I’m still experimenting with these in-camera double exposures. After years of claiming to be a photographer, I’m slowly starting to feel like an artist again.

The smart and beautiful Krystal Becker often looks quite serious and almost downcast in many of her photos, mainly because photographers like her to look as moody as possible. Thankfully I was able to catch the more light-hearted aspect of her personality when we shot this month in Orange County. It is really hard not to fall in love with this special lady, she is great.

I finally had an opportunity to work with Alina, aka Thumbelina, in Griffith Park this morning. We had one of the best conversations I’ve had in a while, and she proved herself to be sweet, honest, driven, passionate, and very self-aware. I was really impressed and hope she achieves all the goals and aspirations her heart desires. Be prepared for more great things from this wonderful woman.

Her gaze was one that elicited both joy and fear in equal measures.-
Model: Miss Kacie Marie

This image and many others are included in the almost 100-page booklet featuring images that Kacie Marie and I and have shot together since the day we met. These photos were taken from LA to NYC over the last five years and are some of the best works I have ever shot with anyone.

Order yours today while they are still available!

”And they say goldfish have no memory,I guess their lives are much like mine…”-

I think I’m finally getting the hang of these double-exposures. I like that it forces me to slow down more, making me focus much more on the compositions of both frames and how they overlay in my mind before they magically appear. It is pass/fail, no in-between. A fun little challenge.
