My passport expires in 7 days

Got my mugshot taken at Kinko's today. The girl only gave me 2 chances and this was the less tired looking option. Probably should have shaved and forced a retarded little smile..

me at 18 and me at 28

Jim has worked at the salt mine for 43 years. He was our guide last week. The cannon in the background shot loud bursts of air to scare off birds. Jim was very nice and everybody liked him.

"One time we found a bird in the water that was coated with 26 pounds of salt.. the only thing visible was his beak." -Jim

Back from LA

Just got back from LA last night. The trip was fun. Assisted Luis and shot a whole bunch of photos. Can't post location shots till the mag comes out in two months. In the meantime... our hotel rooms had crazy natural light.

Spin tear sheet

I have two pictures that came out today in Spin.

Pause to begin

I entered the Pause to Begin contest two weeks ago. Yesterday I got an email saying I was one of the 15 winners. The two guys that run the contest are going to travel around the country in the next month interviewing and filming all 15 of us.. pretty stoked right now.

Work drought has ended..

These posts are going to be few and far between for at least the next month or so. Slammed with work. Shot a bunch of things lately that I really like but can't post them here till they're published. Should get some good photo's in Cali with Luis next week though.

The two photos above are from Luis' mother's house in Valencia. The kiwi in the top photo was a prop for one of his pictures. While we waited for the model, the light outside went down and perfectly balanced itself to the green light of the kitchen..

Shot designer Yigal Azrouel for Nylon Guys yesterday and that went pretty well. Hope they pick the frame I like.

Linda on a boat

The picture above is from Costa Rica last winter.

Today I got paid to take "behind the scenes" photos for an advertising job Luis was shooting. In my quick edit I counted 9 KILLER vertical frames of the girl getting ready (theres a shitload more I gotta hand in). Her whole body was painted blue and it made for interesting visual moments. Good day for me today..
Have to wait a month till I can post them or use 'em in any way though.

Beautiful weather

The weather today was retarded. Me and Nick walked from his house in Queens, all the way over to Roosevelt island. The two photographs are from the spiral staircase at the top of the parking megaplex.

Croatia and Bosnia III (color)

Ok.. last batch.. color slides from the Yashica T4

Two pics from a solar eclipse.

Sometimes me and Al got bored.

Stray bullet in the kitchen ceiling/wall.

The troop barracks in Sarajevo. Totally shot to shit.

Here is the Bosnian parliament building.

The beginnings of reconstruction. Lots of buildings were covered in patches of concrete.

The graffiti was a little different.

Past few days

Spent the past few days hanging around here in Brooklyn. Saw Esao a lot and managed to get this pretty kick ass photo of his dog, Soybean..

Also, finally finished printing a new portfolio where the prints now measure 9"x12"..

..and Tom Herpich moved back to Brooklyn from Asheville. About fucking time. He got a new spot off the Morgan stop that's real nice and big and bright. His bedroom has a whole wall of windows and he seems pretty stoked.

-This was on one of the Nike jobs Luis did in 2000.
-The location is in the middle of nowhere, California.
-It was 5 in the morning and cold as shit.
-A few hours later it was 99 degrees.
-The day before, we saw Tim Burton filming his crappy "Planet Of The Apes."
-This girls husband was Wayne Brady.
-He was wearing a tracksuit and sleeping in the back of a Lincoln Towncar.
-Nobody knew who he was anyway.
-Me, Luis, and Justin are going back there next Saturday.

Dirtbag Mt.

this guy said he climbed it when he was 15 and there was a mental institution on top..

the knucklehead below would've been right at home.

Anyways.. here's some pictures from this past Sunday.

Location scout

Luis backyard location scouting at an old factory 45 minutes from Paris. Minutes later we spotted this from one of the upper floors.
