Red Chile

Red Chile

I’ve been thinking about food all day today. So, when it came time to choose a photo for today’s post, I was immediately drawn to this shot.


Pride Parade

Pride Parade

As spring approaches I’m starting to think about all the things I love about the warm weather. Gardening, Hiking, and of course Pride always top my list. This image was taken at the 2008 Pride Parade on Colfax Ave. right across from the Capitol Building. This photo always brings a smile to my face.  They […]


Little Hippo

Little Hippo

This photo was taken for my partner, Remy’s Blog. His middle name is Hipolito and he named his blog, “Little Hippo.” At the time, Remy still smoked and we thought this was the perfect image for it. He has since stopped smoking so we’re thinking about a new image for his website. If you’d like […]


Smooth Waters

Smooth Waters

Yesterday, I received a neutral density filter that I ordered earlier in the week. I went for a walk along the Platte river with my dog, Kahlo to get this shot. I scouted this spot on a walk with my partner Remy last weekend and I knew it would be the perfect place to try […]


Colorful Como

Colorful Como

Como, Colorado has to be one of the most “colorful” places to shoot in Colorado. The small town is filled with little visual treasures like this one. I always find something new when I go to Como!


Birthday of a Muse

Birthday of a Muse

Today is the birthday of  my friend Felix. I met Felix for coffee today and we talked about photography, our history as friends and our futures. For years, Felix was my main model. Any time I wanted to shoot photos, he was there, ready and willing.  He was open to new ideas and often had […]


Line of Fortune

Line of Fortune

Today we took a long walk with the dog in River Front Park. I knew that I was looking for imagery for today’s blog but I wasn’t sure what I was looking for. I shot photos of broken glass, a lone brave kid standing in the cherry creek and details of a public art piece […]


Mamiya, I miss you.

Mamiya, I miss you.

As an artist, I’ve always felt the pull of self portraits.  I get so comfortable behind the camera, it makes it easier to photograph myself when I’m holding one of my favorites. I love my Mamiya 645. It’s a classic medium format camera with sturdy design and beautiful optics. I love the sound of the […]


Cal

Cal

This image was created from a detail of a painting by artist, Cal Duran. I really love the narrow field of focus and creepy feel of this image. I shot it on Tri-X film with my Canon Eos 1N.


Driftwood Motel

Driftwood Motel

This photo was part of a series of photographs I did based on Colfax Ave. in Denver.  Colfax is known for it’s neon, motels and used car lots. The Driftwood Motel is located close to the border of Denver and Aurora.

Environmental Portrait

Environmental Portrait

An environmental portrait is a portrait of someone that tells a story of who they are. I.E. portraits of people in their own environments. This Portrait of artist, Brighton Daugherty in his studio at The Other Side Arts was done in 2005 . Brighton is a painter who’s work is informed by different Asian cultures. […]


Tony

Tony

I shot this photo of Tony sometime last week. I used one large soft box to the left of him one smaller soft box to his right and a fill light behind me. I really like the expression on his face in this shot.


Starring Role

Starring Role

The image of the light bulb has long had a starring role in my work. I am drawn back to it’s shape and symbols time and time again. Perhaps we’ll live in a world where this type of light bulb no longer exists. However, I don’t believe the shape and symbolic meanings behind it will […]


Frozen Water Is Not Always Ice

Frozen Water Is Not Always Ice

I’m working on a series of water photographs. I’m getting very close to what I’m going for. Here’s an example of one of the shots. I really love doing this type of work in the studio on snowy days. It’s perfect distraction from the real world. Simple drops of water can become a whole different […]


Costco Sunset

Costco Sunset

The other day I was heading to Costco for some of the usual staples and I noticed this sunset from the parking lot. I try to make it a habit to always have my camera with me, and on that day, I did. I took about 6 captures and this was my favorite. I used […]


Bound by Pride

Bound by Pride

I created this image during a period of my life where I felt the gay community and the gay world was suffocating me. As much as I tried to be a part of it, the more it rejected me or held me back. This is something I struggle with often. I’m very much a community […]


Flower Bed

Flower Bed

As I continue this year, committed to posting one new image each day for 365 days, I would like to begin introducing other aspects of my work. I often use my photography as a starting place rather than an end. I merge the images into drawings, paintings and serigraph prints through a variety of techniques. […]


Como Cemetery

Como Cemetery

This was taken from Como Cemetery, just outside of Como, Colorado. Como is an old mining town that was very popular because  the railroad passed through on it’s way to Breckenridge. At one time the town even had two newspapers, multiple saloons and hotels. Much of the town  burned and was never re-built. Now, there […]


Water Tower

Water Tower

This great water tower was along the dirt road that led us to our campsite that was on a dramatic hill. Sleeping was so difficult that we had to move our site the next day. Never camp sleeping on a hill! It made for a good story and this dramatic photograph.


Never too many shoes!

Never too many shoes!

Today, I shot some photography of some great jewelry by Aurora artist, Kim Harrell. I love these red pump earrings! They are too cute. You need to buy your loved ones these earrings. And if you want to browse some more beautiful jewelry check out Iturralde Diamonds Jewelry. They have the most beautiful jewelry at […]


Bert Hölldobler and Edward O. Wilson in the rain by Tobias Rehberger

Bert Hölldobler and Edward O. Wilson in the rain by Tobias Rehberger

Yesterday, we visited the “Embrace” exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. This piece by Tobias Rehberger was my favorite of the exhibit. Tobias was able to break down the normal rules of not interacting or touching the art. You make your way through this maze of bungee cords to find little pockets or rooms where […]
