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.)

Tape for Sale!

Evan got a new job selling gaffer tape, so I offered to do the promotional materials. What do you think?

Ok, just kidding.

After the snake debacle, I'm a bit wary of making any jokes on the blog lest they be taken too seriously. I can't tell you how many people believed I had adopted a snake I found under the house. I mean, do I seem like the kind of person who adopts stray animals? An animal I had just found on the street?

Don't answer that.

I was taking some head shots at an engineering firm today and it was pretty tough getting them to smile. I tried all my tricks - making jokes, making fun of myself, making fun of them (just a little) and I would get them laughing, then focus the shot and snap! just like that, they had wiped the smiles off their faces. Fastest smile to neutral I've ever seen. Those engineers are in a serious business. They don't want anyone thinking they might be soft.

Anyway, have I mentioned how glad I am that it's the weekend? I'm going to the studio tomorrow to go meet the public (hi public!) and try to sell a couple of prints (fingers crossed), so it should be fun. And although I have a lot of processing to do over the weekend I'm feeling more relaxed about it all. It'll be raining here in SF, so I won't have much better to do. Somehow it's harder to buckle down when the sun's shining outside.

So what are your plans for the weekend? Want to buy some tape?
