I saw a drawing of Superman and Batman playing like children and thought it would be fun to stage an entire shoot on that idea. Casey Thompson and Colin Evans were great running around downtown Seattle with underwear on over tights.

Suite HOPE (Helping Oncology Patients Esthetically) is a newly formed non-profit. Founded by Make-Up Artist Jeanna Doyle, Suite HOPE’s mission is to provide women with education and support they need to address the changes in their appearance that occur during cancer treatment.
Abigail was approached to tell her story through this fantastic new organization. Here are some shots from our little hotel room shoot. If you would like to learn more about Suit HOPE, you can do so at www.suitehope.com
I worked a couple days with the musician Clay Thrash on some new promo material. We wanted to capture a sense of mood and place that felt simultaneously specific and ubiquitous. He’s a real talent of whom Nashville would be jealous.
I shot Sarah Jaffe Earlier this year. As news of her new work trickles out I’m seeing my shots pop up in wonderful places such as Spin and USA TODAY. The work produced by McKenzie Smith is some of her best and I’m so proud to have collaborated with her on some images. The creative spirit that resides in Denton TX and fans out by collaboration through the rest of the country is an inspiration to any community filled with a passion that seems to say “Brooklyn who?”.
You can hear Sarah’s work and see the Spin and USA TODAY blog posts below.
SOMA Magazine published one of my shots of David Lowery.
Hailed internationally as the seminal voice and vision of independent, avant-garde arts, fashion, culture and design for 22 years, SOMA Magazine has cultivated immense organic appeal and forged its place within the thriving creative industries and communities the world over.
Abigail and I spend the fourth with friends in Ballard. Driving Back to Tacoma we saw fireworks going off all over the sound. When we got home we had fun with some sparkler drawings. I hope you like our little menagerie.
