Nina and Sebastian ~ Masai Mara

Some places stay with you forever. When wildlife photographer Nina and her Sebastian asked me to shoot their wedding in Masai Mara in Kenya, I didn’t know this land would touch me so deeply. It sung to me in a way I didn’t know possible, found new chords and played on strings I didn’t know I had inside me. “If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game ..read more

I tell stories. I’ve resisted the label storyteller for the longest time, but the truth is that is what I am. What I’ve always been. People invite me into their stories, be it for a moment, and I try and re-tell them my way. Often the stories tell themselves, they lead me by the hand and all I do is listen to what I’m given. But this time. Man. I really don’t even know where to begin. The story I’m about to tell is more complex than any other, yet it’s as simple as breathing. A couple of years ago, Jacqui and I went to Ubud in Bali for the first time. Serendipity lead us on winding roads to th ..read more

My love for New Orleans runs deep, I’m not sure what it is about this city that speaks to me so strongly. Every time I’ve visited I find new places to explore, it’s a city that has seen it all and you can feel it in the very bones of these streets. Walking down Bourbon Street in New Orleans during Candice and Joe’s second line will forever be one of the most amazing experiences of my photography career. I simply couldn’t stop grinning. Joe plays in a band and Candice is on TV, but this weekend was never about that. It was a gathering of close friends and family and I feel honored they let me i ..read more

A few days before the lockdown hit America, I taught my last workshop in Miami. I miss the interaction with people and sharing what I’ve learned over the years. A month ago I started a patreon page to build a community where I can share my educational content, how I edit, how I pose people, business, marketing and everything else. I also try to do weekly zoom conversations with people in the industry on various topics. It’s still a small tight group, but I’m hoping to grow that. For as little as $10 you get access to all the content, this video is just a little taste. Hit me up if you have any ..read more

Down At The Crossroads

When I was younger I used to stay in my room and play guitar for hours. When the passing trams made the windows rattle in our old apartment building, I was playing the blues scale up and down, faster and faster until my fingers bled. I was never very good at playing the guitar, when you’re 16 there’s always someone better, a boy with long hair, white teeth and a better tan who would play songs you could only dream of playing. We used to light a fire by the ocean, huddle together behind the cliffs and pretend we were there for the music when we all knew it’s all about the game, how to fit in an ..read more

Ellis wakes up before dawn every morning, always happy, always ready to take on the new day. “Awake!”, I hear him say and usually get up and let Sarah sleep a while longer. She had it tough when I was going through the immigration process, so I figure the early morning shift is one small way for me to repay her for the sacrifices she had to make. This morning I need some music to wake up myself so I put on some music from New Orleans because I know Ellis loves it. His face lights up when he hears the trombones and trumpets and together we dance the darkness away. Sarah soon joins us and sudde ..read more
