Thank you Inside Tucson Business for nominating me as a 2011 Up and Comer. and congratulations to all of the other nominees. “Up & Comers is a recognition program designed to highlight the achievements of people in the Tucson region in their 20s, 30s and early 40s who, while still early in their careers, are already making a difference, both in their work and in the community.”

I know that this is a touchy subject for some at this time of the year, but I do have a new Calorie Counter Cookbook out. Chantal Martineau wrote the recipes and I did the cooking, food styling and photography. It’s available at Amazon.com; just in time for your impending New Years resolution!



A History of Ghosts

October 22, 2009

After reading an article about this book by Dan Aykroyd’s father in the Huffington post I went to put in in my cart at Amazon and saw that one of my photos was on the cover! Amazing! I couldn’t ask to be on a better cover. I’m really interested in the Spiritualist Movement right now.

It turns out that Rodale had purchased it through Getty Images – one of my stock photo agencies.

I won two honorable mentions at the IPA awards (Lucie’s). I checked out the website and was floored by the quality of the other honorable mentions. And, it turns out that there were like 24,000 entries overall so I guess I did pretty well. They are all listed here: http://photoawards.com/en/Pages/Gallery/hmentionPRO.php

And here is a link to my specific entries:

Dieting In Russia

May 8, 2009

I’ve got a photo published in the Russian version of Cosmopolitan. It seems to be a story about not wanting to be tempted by delicious cake while on a diet. Here is the photo they published. You can read (or just look at) the article here: http://www.cosmo.ru/your_life/you/670563/

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.
