Hope Rediscovered at the Women's March 2017

Can't begin to describe the emotions I felt walking towards downtown Portland this morning. For those of us who are in disbelief about the election–seeing this colorful human tapestry of goodness is simply awe inspiring.

Lemniscate Diffusion Magazine

Three photographs from the DEEP in Between series were recently published in the Diffusion's 2016 Annual publication, Lemniscate of Diffusion, Volume VIII, published by One Twelve Publishing. "Lemniscate of Diffusion addresses the dichotomy and relationship between non-figurative (abstract) and narrative theatrical (mise-en-scène) photography." - Blue Mitchell

Twinka Thiebaud Steps In

I met Twinka Thiebaud during the Photo Lucida show at the Portland Art Museum back in July and a few weeks later connected one-on-one over her table for tea. There was an instant ease and connection with Twinka as we shared aspirations and stories. I was tickled learning about her tribe of creatives that surround her now and the ones she's travelled with in the past, including her years with Henry Miller (you can find her book here), the many photographers and artists who have documented her over the years including Judy Dater (check out her infamous portrait of Imogen Cunningham and Twinka here), fellow Portlander Susan Seubert (with a current fine art portrait of Twinka), to name a few. I invited her to come into the studio and participate as a model in my most current work entitled 'DEEP in Between', which she'd seen at the Photo Lucida show. She was on board and we set a time to get together to play in the 'sandbox'. Thoughts about end of life, tranquility, energy, play and power were some of the themes we explored. I am always inspired and excited to collaborate with new people and the enigmatic Twinka was no exception. 

Photo Lucida 2015

Surfacing from a new project it's always a thrill to show new work to fresh eyes. As a Photo Lucida participant I'll be showing my new work at an event this Thursday, April 23rd from 6 - 9pm

My latest project 'DEEP in Between' will be shared along with the work of over one hundred photographers at the Portland Art Museum - Fields Ballroom - 1219 SW Park Avenue. My work will be on display between 7 - 8pm but I encourage you to come for the whole time and immerse yourself in pictures. FREE and open to the public.

Camera & Craft

Andy Batt, Candace Dobro and Jodie Steen combined their strengths as photographers, writers and educators to pull together relevant skill building concepts, illustrations and examples for growing photographers. They included the voices and imagery from nine professional photographers and mined them for advice from technology, tools, techniques and aesthetics. I was featured as one of said photographers.

Geared towards serious photo enthusiasts who aim to take their shooting from automatic to mindfully manual. This book is filled with powerful gems to improve your understanding about how the mechanics of the camera work but how to stretch your creative thought process to see the world in a new way when behind the lens. 

I know a fair amount about photography and was still delighted to learn new concepts, trends and ideas myself.

The Camera & Craft PDX book launch is at Pro Photo in NW Portland on Thursday, March 26th from 6 - 8:30 pm. RSVP and get your FREE tickets here.

Named #2 of Photo.nets top photo books of 2014. You can purchase this book on Amazon for around $25.

Trust me, it's a substantial and beautiful investment of your resources.
