night

A while back Diane Kashy and the folks at Madden sent me out into the night to find and photograph plants that only bloom by the light of the moon. I wandered my neighborhood and the grounds at Hacienda del Sol which is an old boarding school turned into an inn. Here is a link to the article which is running this month in Tucson Home Magazine.

Two images from my series Social Obligations were chosen for American Photography 24. The images are from different social events that I had to attend for one reason or another. I’m fascinated by gender roles and power plays.

Ghost Hunters!

August 22, 2006

Over the summer I was lucky enough to work as the still photographer on three episodes of the show Ghost Hunters for the Sci-Fi Channel. Basically I tromped around in the dark looking for ghosts with the show’s amazing cast and crew. It was a TON of fun! You can see some more of my images on the Ghost Hunters website or on TV Guide.com.
