I’m looking forward to the warm weather. Winter in Colorado is very beautiful, but long. I’m looking forward to grass, flowers and even bugs. (we don’t have many here)
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.

I’ve known Randall since he wandered into The Other Side Arts as a 17 year old who was failing his High School photography class because of creative differences. Randall is nothing if not bold and honest in […]
Styled by Denver fashion designer Mondo Guerra for the 2007 gay pride issue of Metromode Magazine, this image was also exhibited in an international photography exhibit at the Center for Fine Art Photography last year.
