Shot from last week. I have the most patient model in the world. I swear.
Nectar Magazine is getting way more submissions for issue #2 than for “Evidence of Home”. With more than 3 months left, I can’t wait to see all of the work that we get! I posted some of our recent submissions on Nectar’s site, check it out:
Unrelated, but cool: Check out Die Antwoord’s latest video, directed by amazing photographer Roger Ballen. Creepy and catchy and all around great.
Another recent thesis image. Just did another shoot today, of legs. More on that when those get developed.
Nectar Magazine closed submissions for its first issue. Over 100 people submitted, which is pretty good for coming up with the idea 4 months ago and having zero advertising budget. It can only grow from here. I’ve got some neat ideas about the next issue, but everything will have to be finalized before it can be released.
I’ve got some new Thesis images, after a much needed winter break. We drove from New Mexico to Arkansas to Missouri to Arkansas to New Mexico to Colorado, and finally back to New Mexico to stay. Admittedly, I was not as productive as I should have been in terms of image making, but I did relax fiercely and it was great to see family and meet new people too.
I’ve vowed to actually be productive now that I am back at school, so here are some new images, all taken with a 4X5 view camera, printed gelatin silver.
Also, don’t forget about Nectar Magazine! Submissions close in less than 2 weeks.
I hope everyone’s year was as good as mine was. Of course there were stress and deadlines, but overall I loved it.
The deadline for Nectar’s first issue is February 1, so that’s only a month away.

I am currently in the process of creating an issue-themed art magazine, that will include photos, writing, drawing, painting, illustration, graphic design, sculpture, film stills, etc.
The current theme is titled Evidence of Home. We are planning to get it out by mid-May. Maybe earlier depending on how big it turns out to be. The more submissions we get the better it will be.
Check it out and spread the word!
Here are some new photos from the most recent shoot, plus new titles!
Went to the Southwest regional SPE conference this weekend. Amazing photographers gave amazing presentations. It was fantastic.
A few preview shots from this weeks 4×5 shoot for thesis!
In the studio:

and some final 4×5 images:

MORE TO COME!
