Brynn + Mike

We met Brynn and Mike two years ago at this very same WPPI photo convention. Its a massive gathering of 10,000 photographers from all over the world … and we always tell ourselves that we’ll make a bunch of new friends every year. But its not always that easy. Luckily the Davello’s are super friendly and broke through our bubble of awkwardness to help sustain a real friendship.

These two juggle personal projects, a full time photography partnership, 4 kids and a dog (aptly named ‘Nikon’) and are truly super human. Check out their work www.davello.com
We had a free 20 minutes before dropping them off at the airport after the convention … so we hit the rooftop of a nearby casino for some quick portraits.

Morning with the Willinghams

We recently spent a few days in Denver and met up with the great photographer duo Angela and Drew Willingham. Though we were traveling through just a couple of days, they cleared their schedule to spend some time with us. Here are a few snaps from my voigtlander vito C 35mm camera.

Art Installation: Emmêlée

For this month’s Artwalk, I have a wall all to myself! Very exciting, but also a little overwhelming! Since I’m not quite ready to show my current paintings, I thought it would be fun to try doing an installation for the first time! After sketching out a few different ideas, I decided on this concept!

This is a mannequin that Valerie and I found many years ago in Santa Ana near our old studio. It has always been special to me, so turning her into art just felt right. Special thanks to: Valerie, Roxanna, Candace, and Brian for helping me make this idea into a reality.

Criss crossing

tangled line

dancing through

captive mind

Intersected object

of affection

there must be

balanced imperfection

containing

what must flee

Behind this

parting plea

once captured

now set free:

She is Emmêlée.
