I look forward to sharing images of the published work in the coming months.

Locally Published Picture

I recently visited my high school alma matter and watched former Laguna Beach High School alumni play baseball against the current varsity team. About 10 alumni players, ranging from Chuck Harell '65 to Noah Brewtster '05, returned to the diamond to play ball. The current varsity team won 7 to 1.

Below is a baseball hitting sequence series that I took of Chris Stansbury '03 with his brother Gabe '09, catching. The picture was published in The Laguna Beach Independent, Laguna's local paper.

Surfer Magazine

I recently donated a limited edition photograph for an upcoming Surfer Magazine event that will benefit the Cardiff Educational Foundation of California.

Below is an image of Rick Irons, publisher of Surfer Magazine and me.

The limited edition Rocky Point Beach Photograph is also available for sale at Gary's in Fashion Island, Newport Beach, CA.

Siblings (a digital series).

The concept of the series is to connect siblings in a digital environment. Facebook allows us to maintain our relationships with our friends, acquaintances and also our brothers and sisters. Although we may live thousands of miles apart, Facebook and other social networks allow us to connect on a direct platform.

All of the siblings in the series have impacted my life over the years and I’m glad to creatively connect them.

2009 Calendar.

I am excited to announce that I will have a 2009 calendar. It will be a complimentary gift at a Los Angeles based retailer. The merchant will be formally introduced in a few months.

From Los Angeles' metropolis to Orange County's beaches, the calendar will feature iconic images of Southern California’s culture. It will be given away during a special promotion in the summer.

After having my first calendar published in 2007, I decided to focus my efforts on creating artwork, my graduate studies and did not create a calendar for 2008.

50 Faces (a series).

I randomly selected 50 facebook friends and created stylized portraits from their profile pictures. Some of them are friends, others current and former classmates and the rest are acquaintances. The 50 are connected through serendipity; the same way facebook connects us. All of the portraits are created through digital processes, symbolic for our horizontal technological society.
