salton sea manifesto

today, i am going to be a photographer.

i am not going to edit photos. i am not going to email. i am not going to devlop marketing plans. i am not going to answer the cell phone. i am not going to design a wedding album. i am not going to tech support a million random office problems. i am not going to surf the web. i am not going to stress.

today, i am going to be a photographer.

today i am heading out on a mini mancation with doug b and jay reilly to the salton sea for a day of fun, exploration, and picture taking. as our photo business continues to flourish it becomes harder and harder to find the time to do photography for photography's sake. the kind the made me fall in love with this wonderful medium....that kind that was only for me. so today i head out to try to rekindle a bit of that flame. wish me luck...

here is a picture i took back in 2002 at salton sea...on film! stay tuned for some more current images tomorrow!

terra pass . help save the planet...be carbon neutral!

let's face it, we all know the planet is going to hell in a handbasket faster than we could imagine. the problem of global warming is so big that it seems so daunting to everyone...including our government. well every journey starts with a step....here is a small one we can all take :)

we all contribute to global warming. we all have a "carbon footprint," the total carbon dioxide emissions we create when we drive or fly or use electricity. the first step we can take to fight global warming is to reduce our carbon footprint through conservation. drive less. turn down the thermostat. buy locally produced goods. then use TerraPass to reduce your carbon footprint all the way to zero. when you buy a TerraPass, your money funds renewable energy projects such as wind farms. these projects result in verified reductions in greenhouse gas pollution that counterbalance your own emissions.

what a fantastic idea! to couterbalance the carbon footprint from our two cars, home and studio cost us about $250 per year....a small price to pay for the good of this beautiful planet! another cool thing terra pass has done is partner with expedia so when you purchase a flight, you can simultaneously purchase credits to offset the carbon emissions! oh, and another cool thing...if you're anything like us, you have an old cell phone or two laying around the house right? well you can turn your old cell phone into a free terra pass! by sending in your old cell phone for recycling you get a treehugger double whammy! the cell phone is recycled so it doesn't end up in some landfill and you get a terra pass to help promote renewable energy and fight global warming.

samantha's maternity portrait

one of the greatest joys of our work is to be able to document families as they develop. we started our relationship with samantha and her husband erik back in 2005 with a couple's portrait...then i shot a bridal session for samantha (see the bridal section of our wedding site for pics)....and now they are expecting their first child! i was honored to be able to shoot samantha's maternity portraits...i can't wait to meet baby ben when he arrives in april! as always, samantha was a blast to shoot, and uber-fashionable...i can't say i've ever seen rock and republic maternity jeans!
