Heliotrope Nine at The Lab Theater I’m still in happy blissed-out mode after three days of Heliotrope – an annual experimental music festival. This year marked its 9th installment. The week before a “Players Without Instruments” interview was posted with me, where I tried to namedrop Heliotrope as much as possible as it really is […]
Another Walk About, After Dark Intentionally or subconsciously…lately I’ve been shooting plenty of pairings. Often completely random – or random-ish – in compelling combinations. Friends, lovers, co-workers, but also people meeting for the first time. I’d like to do more of the latter. Another photo project to assign myself!
A September Wedding on Summit Avenue Last year I took a walk around St. Paul’s Lowertown neighborhood with a lovely couple, shooting their engagement photos on an uber-hot August day. Fast forward a year and a month and they asked me back, to capture their big wedding day. The weather was much milder this go […]
More Than Just a Pretty Face My focus lately has been on pulling some pretty specific pieces together for an upcoming show (mark your calendars – Friday, March 4th – more info to come). But that doesn’t keep me from shooting any and everything else along the way. Especially the cast of characters I come […]
Weekends of Weddings The past few years I’ve had the opportunity to shoot many lovely weddings. Being that this is Minnesota, though, even the hardiest of us prefer to hold/attend weddings during milder weather. So it’s generally a seasonal gig. Which means many couples are scrambling for the most desirable time slots at the best […]
The Flowers and the Trees Over the weekend I had the honor of documenting (and participating in) the marriage of two lovely individuals. I have loads of photos to sort through for the happy couple and their fantastic families, but plan to post a few favorites here over the next couple of weeks.
Strike Another Match, Go Start Anew Friday saw the end of an era. My friends’ band, Charles de Gaulle, played their final show (one of the members is moving out of state). It was a solid last stand, played with Falcon Crest and Meth & Goats. But CDG will be missed. More photos here.
Victory Over the Sun This winter just keeps on keeping on. It was -3Â°F when we left the house this morning. And my son has been marking the days off on his calendar and essentially asking “are we there yet?” on a regular basis. No son, not just yet. But soon. Very soon.
Fun In A Muddy Field Last Sunday I went on a little field trip with my friends’ band, The Chambermaids, to a place I hadn’t heard of before. The Franconia Sculpture Park just outside of the Twin Cities. I’m pretty pleased with the results. Bonus: Some more photos, from their show at Eclipse Records last […]
