“Come Wander With Me” with McKenzie Eckels

Most of the models I work with are also talented actresses and singers- McKenzie Eckels absolutely excels at these (as well as being an amazing drawer and painter).  This collaboration was made as a tribute to her favorite Twilight Zone episode, “Come Wander With Me”.  The AMAZING singing is all McKenzie.  Let us know what you think!


“Dusk” zines 1-3 – model photography meets graphic design in troubled times


I had been wanting to do a graphic design-themed zine for a long while (having access to a fairly nice color copier at my work) and by the time Phoenix Zine Fest rolled around fall of 2017, I had enough material to make 3 issues.  Models include my daughter Maggie, Alina Lee aka Thumbelina, McKenzie Eckels, Ana Corbí, and many many more of my favorite people.
Graphic design school was my first education after high school and anything pushing design or altered photography I’m there for.  It is so much fun to take an image and push it to new levels.  


Anyone interested in actually owning a zine can order one on my shop.  Each are approximately 6×8″ with card stock cover, hand stitched binding, 20 pages of design and writing and a 16 track CD of original ambient/ trip hop music I made.


I have an explainer video of why you may want to make a zine of your own on my YouTube!  Feel free to contribute to the list of complaining comments about how the music is too loud in this particular video.

Jessie Through The Years- a Patreon Model Set

This week’s Patreon set is work with Jessie, a local model I’ve shot with for nearly 10 years!

When I got into model photography, it was after a decade of shooting other things and deciding it would be a good thing to have a few consistent subjects to follow over a longer period of time.  Jessie is someone who I’ve now shot over 8 years, and these are a selection of a few images during that time- a cool representation how both she and I have changed.

Twice monthly non-nude model sets are available at the $1 pledge level, with an explainer video on how it was shot!


This week’s featured model on my Patreon – Kate Eff

This week’s model set for $5 Patreon subscribers is Kate Eff- a proud midwestern transplant to Portland.  I shot with Kate in early December in a particularly strange mutated fashion.  And as always on my Patreon, there’s explainer video to make the sets educational as well as entertaining!

The Making of Road Rage with Kaila Stone

Let me tell you how I did rear projection in this indie film project with model Kaila Stone and stylist/ mua Lux Tango, shot in my studio in Tempe Arizona! We took huge influence from James Bond, Danger Diabolik and the amazing Danger 5 tv show.
