Apple Mob

Date October 23, 2011

I’ve worked with ImprovAZ in the past & had an opportunity to photography a “secret prank” today as 30+ individuals wore a blue t-shirt with what looks like an apple logo and heart mashed together. Originally we wondered if the flash mob would out number the employees/customers in the store but today it was packed! […]

Mayor Jay Tibshraeny called me about the Multicultural Festival

Date March 2, 2011

Recently there was a Multicultural Festival in downtown Chandler, AZ; I thought it was pretty cool event so I took my camera and headed out. I enjoyed the citizenship ceremony and the events. I made several photos and then shared them with groups that were involved including the City of Chandler. Recently I noticed a […]

Dusk in the Desert

Date February 14, 2011

365-44 (Feb 13), originally uploaded by nooccar. Dusk had just fallen in the desert. Low clouds rolled through the sky in my yard as a I made this photograh. It was a fluke that I saw this in B&W. I meant to process this in colour, but I pressed some button incorrectly and saw it […]

365-37 (Feb 5)

Date February 6, 2011

365-37 (Feb 5), originally uploaded by nooccar. Fabric flower escaping the fake lights, fastly faltering, looking for life beyond, sustenance in a paper moon. My first daily shoot in months, as part of my assignments for Jim Groom’s #ds106 course. Go abstract today and make a photograph that focuses on form and color rather than […]

Boyce Thompson Arboretum photowalk

Date July 12, 2010

When you tweet about photography you tend to gravitate towards other local photos and them to you. This is how I came to know Tom Boggan a local former East Valley Tribune photographer who is now a professional freelancer. Prior to Easter I’d heard about this photowalk where Tom answered questions and shared whatever information […]

Mayview State Hospital; or, dump the film, punk.

Date June 16, 2010

I was driving by an old abandoned building this morning in the rain and came across a woman on the side of the road with a Canon Rebel & binoculars. I pulled over to say hello and see what she was shooting. She said she was “birding” and lived in Houston. I told her I […]

Tagging photos in Flickr

Date June 10, 2010

cc licensed flickr photo shared by funkandjazz As the idea of “tagging” files, images, folders, etc… caught on over the last few years, I’ve embraced it for so many reasons. Instead of sticking a file into a folder, that file could not represent so much more. For students, this could be “paper”, “draft1”, “Sci 302”, […]

Have Faith in your Art

I am the editor for The Music Matters Project, a not for profit music photography benefit project out of Arizona in conjunction with Sweet Relief a benefit for terminally ill recording artists out of California. Today I wrote a post on art, what it means, and why we, as artists, need to have faith in […]

What I need for a Photographer Website

Date June 1, 2010

I’m at an in between place as a photographer. I do agree I’ve been a photographer most of my adult life and have only cared more about what I shoot and how I shoot it in the last 1 1/2 years. Also, I was never paid for my work before last December, but now I […]

Top 10 Rules for shooting family portraits outside

Date November 30, 2009

I was hired to shoot a Christmas family portrait session and frankly I was nervous. See, I’ve been paid before but it’s usually candid, or sports. Nothing where I set it up or anything, and the “customer” has always been faceless. This time it was a friend who wanted family photos for the holidays. She’s […]
