Suki and I headed out to the beach for a stroll along the water this evening after I got off work. The weather has been totally gloomy in San Francisco lately, however, so there wasn’t any dramatic light to make use of when arrived on sight. The test shot I took of her above gives […]Read More Does Flash Have to Look Like…Flash?
The wife decided to start sprucing up various rooms in our house this week. Had a friend come over and help paint the walls of one of our rooms in Tiffany blue. I played the lazy photographer husband while they did all the work =) Gotta hurry! We have some friends coming in from Japan […]Read More Home Improvement Time!
Watch out Suki! Well, she’s actually not in any real danger here.

She spent some time this year training at the Jazz School in Berkeley, California. The […]Read More A Night at the Jazz Cafe in Berkeley
Spent this past Sunday afternoon with this adorable little girl and her family. Can someone be any more photogenic than this? My strategy for this shoot was: no strategy. Just follow little Paisley around and see what happens. The result was an amazing little adventure all around the house, climbing different surfaces, discovering her favorite […]Read More Paisley’s Photo Shoot
