I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

I'm sitting here at my computer with a ridiculously large grin on my face. Oh yeah, the best Christmas present ever has arrived: my photo in a newspaper! And not just any newspaper, one of my favorite publications, in fact, the SF Chronicle. You can view the photo and the story here.

Basically I did a job a couple of weekends ago photographing some interiors for a cool loft conversion project in West Oakland. It's a wonderful project, and pretty unique for the area it's in. The spaces are incredible: high ceilings, exposed beams, great natural light, some brick walls, and beautiful wood flooring. The team working on it seem great too, like they've really considered and thought about every detail. Here's the Cigar Factory Lofts website, where you can see more of my photos. The only ones that aren't mine are the images of Unit 1, which were taken by another great local photographer, Scott Hargis.

Here are some more shots.


  1. You are officially a paid photographer now! Yeahhhhhhhhh! These are great pics and what a great loft! I am a Realtor and work w/ a condo developer w/ similar units, aren't they fun?? Congrats, you deserve it! :)

  2. Congrats! That is fantastic stuff!

  3. Great work, nicely done. Congratulations!

  4. What a nice present for Christmas you got. Congratulations! it was a great year for you photographically.

  5. We are all wonderfully proud of you and it is good to see the recognition, but I have a question, what does this have to do with the S.F. Chronicle or any type of Science Fiction for that matter, I am confused, (Dpn't fret it is my normal state).
    Yippee Kai Yay.

  6. Wow. Congratulations! Very nice work! I was published once too! But nothing nearly as nice as the SF Chronicle... mine was just Army stuff :/


  7. Hey zondervon, thanks! (And everyone else, double thanks). Your plane pictures are pretty cool. The light and the smoke make them pretty bad-ass. Nothing to sneeze at at all. Published is published, I say.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
