I photographed the Main Museum and curator Allison Agsten for The Journal of Alta California. Sharing a couple of outtakes from the shoot here.
Between Christmas and New Year’s, I photographed the aftermath of the Creek Fire for Curbed. The folks living in Kagel Canyon have been through hell, and many are understandably guarded and suspicious of outsiders, especially someone poking around with a camera. But once I talked to them a bit, they were the warmest, most welcoming people I’ve ever photographed. More below.
In the first few days of December, I photographed behind the scenes for HATCH in Malibu and Venice. While the main photo shoot was taking place, I shot the models in their downtime, as well as products for HATCH’s social media. What I love about behind-the-scenes photography is the chance to tell the story of the brand authentically. It’s more slapdash, more fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, more hit-or-miss, but it’s real—and when it works, it’s fantastic.
I photographed the artist Henry Taylor for T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Mr. Taylor was commissioned by the magazine to paint a portrait of Jay-Z, which is on the cover of the 2017 Holiday issue, and I got to visit him in his studio and take pictures. Such a thrill!
