guest artist color prints

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014


You can still find giant black and white posters of my work in my shop but now, for a limited time you can also buy one of 2 GIANT COLOR posters over in Debbie Carlo’s shop. Debbie is a hero of mine so this is a big deal for me. Get all the details over in her shop. (There’s a deal if you buy both, FYI).

new work: DISC interiors for daily candy

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013





Loved shooting Daily Candy LA Editor Evvie Crowley’s house in Silver Lake. It was such a beautiful mid century home perched over LA with a dream view; David and Krista from DISC Interiors have the perfect subtle and sophisticated touch, love shooting with them. See the whole feature here.

new work: the plant whisperer for the new york times

Saturday, September 7th, 2013










Recent work for the New York Times had me photographing Mileece, a plant whisperer of sorts who makes music out of plants, lives in an airstream, bathes outside and has performed at MOMA. Her home was a wonderland, see all the pictures and read the article on the NY Times.

Check out some other stories I’ve shot for the New York Times:

A personal design hero in LA
This creative compound (and lively inhabitants) in Santa Monica
A landscape designer in Los Feliz
This coop in Berlin
This interior photographer (and his amazing modern home) in Los Angeles
This outsider artist in Palm Springs

See other recent work in Anthology, Nothing Major, T Magazine, Lonny, Cup of Jo and design love fest.

new work: T Magazine

Friday, August 30th, 2013


Teamed up this week with the talented Alissa Walker who wrote up the brand new Moon Juice Shop in Silver Lake for T Magazine. I shot the photos and tasted all the things. And I totally approve. See and read the whole thing on T Magazine.

new work: shirley kurata for nothing major

Friday, June 28th, 2013






Catching up on some recent work (from 3 months ago, yikes!) that I did for Nothing Major’s new journal (they’re the visual arm of Pitchfork). I spent the afternoon with Mike and Dean and Martha and we collaborated on this interview and home shoot with uber stylist Shirley Kurata. The day was sunny, involved champagne and good friends. Thanks Mike and Dean for making it happen!

Read the whole interview and more photos over on Nothing Major.

new work: anthology magazine

Monday, June 17th, 2013


One of my favorite shoots happened late this winter for the print magazine, Anthology. I got to collaborate with all around food genius Nicole Mournian (Chef at Gjelina Take away, winner of all things pie related and spectacular human being) on a beautiful outdoor entertaining story styled by Justina Blakeny (an equally talented and intimidating designer and color genius). We spent the day together prepping (and documenting) a fresh, beautiful, delicious dinner party in honor of Nicole’s birthday.





In the issue, Nicole shares recipes and stories about some of her favorite easy dishes: a perfect roast chicken, strawberry rhubarb pie, deviled eggs. See a preview of the issue right here or subscribe here. And you might remember I shot a home feature in Anthology’s very first issue.

mixed greens at plantworks in ny opens tonight

Friday, May 17th, 2013


Friends, I’m headed to new york next week.

But before I even get there, I have work opening in a show there TONIGHT. It’s a plant themed group show called Mixed Greens that Sight Unseen organized for the Noho Design District design week festivities. I was so flattered to be included alongside Brian Ferry, Debbie Carlos, Paul Barbera and Leslie Williamson. I have three prints in the show, below is a little peek at one of them.


I am in the process of choosing prints to offer for sale through my site so this show offered me the opportunity to see some things printed. It’s pretty exciting and I can’t wait to share the prints I’m choosing!

I’ll be in new york all next week and in boston the week after so get in touch if you’re around.

in the meantime, you can enjoy my in process May playlist.

new work: monroe workshop

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013



Last year I had the pleasure of working with Matt Monroe and his lovely wife, Jen. We shot Matt’s entire line of handcrafted furniture in their amazing Atwater workshop. He takes so much pride in his work that it more than borders on perfectionism, in the best possible way. His work is impeccable, grand and beautiful. Plus everything is made in LA. My favorites are the Seawall coffee table, the Independence Desk and the Haverhill Rocker. A special thanks to the talented Sarah Rainwater, who did all of their graphic design, for introducing us!

See all the photos and the whole line of furniture on the Monroe Workshop site. And follow them on instagram.














on the internet

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

I’m still catching up from yet another road trip (this time back out to Joshua Tree for a camping trip that did not include the internet). I came home to find that quite a few recent shoots all hit the internet at once. Wanted to share some highlights before I forget!




I love shooting for Remodelista because I so often get to cover the places I go in real life. This time I shot Cortez, one of my favorite local restaurants. See the whole post here.

I was honored (and excited) to shoot a behind the scenes portrait of my friend and hero Sharon Montrose. Not only did I get to see her in action with baby animals, but I also had the pleasure of meeting Joanna from Cup of Jo. Check out the whole behind the scenes profile, right here. (I also shot this project with Sharon.)


These photos I shot of the workspace of wedding superstars Bash, Please got a second wind over on Style Me Pretty.






Emily Henderson and I have done a lot of shoots together and getting to shoot her bedroom redesign was one of the most fun: lots of laughs and lots of cat lady talk. Em posted the full tour on her blog, you can also see it on Apartment Therapy.





Otherwild recently moved into my neighborhood and I was so happy to get a chance to cover it for Pitchfork’s Journal, Nothing Major. They carry a great selection of locally made goods plus fun stuff from Portland and beyond. Now they’re right here on Echo Park Ave. (P.S. that poster is one of my favorites).

I have more to share, but this will have to do for the weekend!

P.S. I’ve been listening to this song and this song nonstop.
