  • Love this basketball court soo much. I’m going to shoot some dope basketball player here one day soon

  • I dreamed about having a view of the city my entire time in college and years after and for it to manifest itself is truly the power of God. Humbled and thankful to be able to do what I love in a city that I love.

    Two weeks ago when I was in San Fran I meet this artist from Colorado who was spending 4 to 5 days on the west coast creating. We talked for a bit and then I ask if I could take a few shots of him. We were in these amazing rolling hills that overlooked the city of SF. I lost his contact information so he may never see the images, but beyond that we did make a connection and for me that is more important. 

  • Love this shot I took in San Fran of these kids playing basketball. With my contax g1. Since it is a film range finder you never know exactly what you are going to get. Even with the light leak I’m love this.  

  • Getting film developed is always an exciting time for me. The film is usually so old I have no clue what is on it. This is a shot at the Getty Museum. 

    Shot with Contax G1 Zeiss 28mm 

  • This year I decided I wanted to shoot UCLA’s Women Lacrosse team as a personal project. So I spent a couple days at practice with them and was able to make it out to a game. The women were great, full of energy and super competitive. I’m thankful they allowed me to share with and capture both their ups and downs.
