Thought I would share a little sneak peek of my favorite images so far from John and Jackie’s wedding at the Nixon Library. Of course all three of these were shot with film.
I am so honored to have an image of mine included in the PHOTOBOOK Cali, the second installment of PHOTOBOOK projects presented by Photo District News and Blurb.
PDN and Blurb put out a call for the best images one could capture up and down the Golden State and they received a spectacular tribute to one of the world’s most iconic locations. From the City of Angels to the Bay Area, through the deserts and into to the wild surf, the 36 winners presented all that draws us west and captures the dreams and pioneering spirit that California embodies.
I was especially pleased that the image they chose was of my hometown of Santa Monica.
I love everything about this book — from the images chosen, to the design, to the cover image.

I must have had my abandoned house radar in good form the day we found this house outside Austin, Texas. Suzi and I were driving along this road and I saw this house way, way in the distance past a lot of corn stalks. We quickly discovered there was no way to get out there except to walk there. Yes that’s right no driveway, no road, nothing………….not even a trace of one. It was a glorious feeling to stand on the front porch of the house and look out at the growing corn stalks. Enjoy these images and make sure to check out Suzi Q. Varin’s blog as well.
We were there to photograph the church steeple in New Sweden, Texas. Added bonus? An abandoned house on blocks next to the church.
