My sister and brother-in-law were kind enough to model for an underwater light test last night. The test is the first stage in a two month long project I’ll be working on.
Even though the surf has been really small I’ve been getting in the water everyday… Never know what kind of images you might come out with.
So stoked that San Diego 6 news reached out to me for a story on professional surfing at Windansea. Huge thanks to Neda Iranpour for putting it all together, and for including my art, surfing, and Hungry Walrus in the … More
Had a great solo show at the Bessell Gallery last weekend. It was the premiere of my Drift collection – an abstract look at the ocean after the sunset. Roughly 80 people came through and much of my work sold. … More
I’ve seen anchovy run three miles along the coast a few times in my life. I was stoked to be on the beach with my camera when they swam through Torrey Pines last week. It was wonderful to be immersed … More
Roughly 100 guests attended the show at Bliss 101 gallery in Encinitas on Saturday. The event was hosted by the crew at Bliss 101 and was held to celebrate our new partnership. Many of my images are now on display … More
Huge thanks to the San Diego Union Tribune, and La Jolla Light, who both featured me in last weeks newspapers. Two of my images were run in the La Jolla Light along with some quotes, and the Union Tribune ran … More
Last weekend I had the opportunity to participate in the La Jolla Festival of the Arts. There were over 100 artists from all over the states displaying incredible work from sculpture to painting. To be accepted into the festival you … More
After eight or nine days of trekking many miles from Lukla (10,000ft), our crew made it to the peak of Kala Patthar (18,300ft), where we were lucky enough to have crystal clear views of Mt. Everest and the surrounding chain. … More
Shame on me for ever thinking I’ve been tough and rugged. I’ve been schooled by a culture of men that are half my weight and height, who posses tenfold my power. Porters are mostly made up of Nepalese decent, and … More
Raw nature is beautiful and humbling. Nothing like staring at the peaks of the tallest mountains on earth to make you feel insignificant. In reality, we are just a speck of dust spending the smallest sliver of time as humans … More
My dad’s been friends with a Sherpa family living in Namche, Nepal, for nearly a decade. Was so excited to have the chance to meet them. Lakhpa Sherpa guided us from Lukla (most dangerous airport in the world), to Everest … More
These are some photos I took along the seven day trek from Lukla village toward Mt. Everest base camp.
Pashupatinath Temple is located a few miles outside of Kathmandu, Nepal. It’s Hindu belief that if your body is cleaned, cremated, and sent down the river, that the soul will eventually reach the Ganges and therefore find salvation. While visiting … More
Kathmandu is unlike anywhere I have ever been. It’s a scene out of Star Wars. Nothing is surprising in Kathmandu because everything is surprising in Kathmandu. It’s like Kuta Bali, Bangkok, Bangladesh, India, and China all got in a blender … More
Spring isn’t the most desirable time of year to be a surfer or water photographer in San Diego. Winds are primarily strong and onshore, and swells are typically from a very steep northerly direction with short interval. I’ve been taking … More
Feels good to get some mainstream exposure for showcasing my work in current and upcoming shows. The La Jolla Light just featured my work in their latest edition. (Stoked my Grandpa can read all about it!) My images are currently … More
After a great week in Mammoth Lakes, I returned to La Jolla to find beautiful weather and offshore winds. Felt good to get back in the water for the first time since the stingray accident. Spent the morning surfing, and … More
