Los Angeles Magazine- After being on the road non-stop, it was great to spend some time in my foggy neighborhood for LA Magazine. Nothing better than walking down the street to Outerlands for an amazing meal and shoot, biking around Land’s End and heading over to the always interesting De Young Museum. 

California Sunday for Lexus- I’m always game for a road trip. This was a dream job for California Sunday, sponsored by Lexus, who gave us a beautiful ride and lots of creative room to explore. If you haven’t heard, California Sunday is the brain child of the lovely and ingenious people behind Pop-Up Magazine. The creative team is amazing and in this wild publishing landscape, they have found a novel way to do great and unique work. Read editor Doug McGray’s more eloquent description here.  I’m honored to be a part of the inaugural issue, full of fantastic photographers, writers, editors and illustrators I admire. Stay tuned for the next installment of our adventures around California. Huge thanks to long time friends and collaborators Derek and Lauren for bringing me into this project. 

The Lost Coast, for Sunset Magazine. This remote stretch of Northern California is one of my favorite places, dream job!

Colorado- I’m in the mountains this week, where I grew up. This is an image of my dad- one of my favorite things to do is fly with him, low and slow, over the landscape, in his bush plane- truly one of the best ways to see the world.

North Shore, Oahu.
I’ve been splitting my time between California and Hawaii lately. After a few action packed weeks shooting in San Francisco and Southern California, I’m headed back to warm waters today. I live 2 blocks from the beautiful, cold, stormy ocean in San Francisco, but spending hours each day in warm, tropical waters is the best. Let’s all plan some more shoots in Hawaii!

Nootka Island, BC for Tiny Atlas Quarterly Winter Solstice Issue

Check out the beautiful new issue of Tiny Atlas Quarterly-  amazing stories and imagery. I’m very excited to have my latest British Columbia adventure featured. Many thanks to Raph Bruhwiler for showing us such a good time, and Tatchu Lodge for the epic adventures and dreamy treehouse. Big props to all the people working hard to make Tiny Atlas Quarterly as amazing as it is, and all the people who supported the kickstarter campaign to make the printed issue happen.

Nootka Island, British Columbia for Tiny Atlas Quarterly- The journey up north to the far reaches of BC was everything I hoped for- bears, timber wolves, orcas, surf, salmon, crazy Canadians, nights spent reading in a cedar treehouse, bonfires on the beach, … I’m busy editing the images for a piece in the upcoming Tiny Atlas Quarterly- in the meantime, please consider contributing to the Kickstarter campaign to fund this gorgeous, unique indie magazine founded by photographer extraordinaire Emily Nathan: “Tiny Atlas Quarterly is the culmination of what happens when art directors, designers, photographers, writers, stylists, digital techs, photo assistants and other friends and contributors from the creative corps collaborate on visual projects of their own designing.” http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tinyatlas/tiny-atlas-quarterly. PS- many thanks to Photo District News for highlighting this image!

British Columbia- I’ll be in BC all week, shooting for Tiny Atlas Quarterly, surfing and hopefully catching some fish! We’ll be on a little island off the west coast of Vancouver Island- it is a super wild, remote place, so if you don’t hear from me, contact my agent directly as I’ll have limited web/phone access.

There are lots of great up and coming, independent magazines around these days, and I’ve loved collaborating with Kinfolk, Anthology, and Tiny Atlas Quarterly.  This time around I did a feature for my friends at Weekend Almanac, co-started by the very talented Ali Ziegler, who is a creative director I’ve worked with on several editorial and cookbook projects. It’s fun to go from big, highly produced shoots to loose, intimate projects, and for this assignment, I got to stay in my neighborhood, which felt like paradise after being on the road so much. 

Órale! Back to Mexico tonight! Here are some images from my last trip there a few months ago with  Story Worldwide for a feature on Huatulco, in Southern Oaxaca state. I’ve spent a ton of time in Mexico, including driving through Mexico for 6 months in a WV van a few years ago, but I hadn’t been to this amazing stretch of coastline before. Great food, perfect surf, lovely people, not overtaken by condos and hotels. 

Portraits for Tiny Atlas Quarterly- I am very happy to have contributed to the latest issue of this beautifully designed magazine- it’s full of work by lots of photographers I really admire, and places I can’t wait to go.

Prospect Heights, Brooklyn- this week’s location was a dream.

New work for Condé Nast Traveler- Hot Tables 2013! I had a the best time shooting this- visiting some of my favorite restaurants in the Bay Area and checking out a few new ones.  My top pick is the The Ramen Shop in Oakland, where I also recently shot for Kinfolk Magazine. Saison is gorgeous and the food is top notch- I had photographed Chef Joshua Skenes a few times before at their old location, and it was great to see the new space. It’s not easy to score a reservation at Rich Table, but worth it. And, if you’re in Wine Country, go to Redd Wood for great pizza and cocktails. 

I’m not afraid to admit that I love LA. I’ll be working here all week, staying in a great house in Santa Monica that I rented for myself and the crew. I get tired of hotels, and it’s fun to pretend I live here for a little while… Here are a few images from another recent shoot down south. 

Seattle- back from a lovely trip to Seattle for GQ magazine (under wraps for a while). Here are some images from a Seattle shoot last year- a coffee centric journey from Seattle to Portland for Japan’s Air Nippon.
