Behind Photographs at The Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.

It is an honor to have 31 of my original 20x24 Polaroids on display at the MCASD in La Jolla until 1/10/16. This is the first time these original Polaroids have been shown in public.

Behind Photographs is a project that I spent 5 years working on with 4 different 20x24 Cameras. Shoot across the United States, I documented over 150 photographers on this format. Please check out our store to see our book from this project.

Remembering Ken Regan

I only met Ken Regan once, the day I photographed him for Behind Photographs in New York at the 20x24 Polaroid Studio. Ken told me he was very private and rarely allowed others to make portraits of him. He said that he wanted to only show a part of his face and hide behind the cover of his book, All Access. The book and the title could have not been more fitting for a photographer that was the rare shooter that could do it all. Ken covered sports, politics, music, celebrities and shot for a huge range of editorial and advertising clients.In the little time I spent with him, I can tell you that he was kind, genuine and generous to have shared an afternoon and a few of his most important photographs with an unknown photographer from San Diego. Thanks for believing in me Ken, may your images live on forever.


LeRoy Grannis 1917-2011


LeRoy Grannis is known for taking some of the most iconic surfing images of the 1960s and 70s. I photographed "Granny" at a retirement home in Carlsbad with his picture of Dewey Weber at 22nd Street in Hermosa Beach. This was one of two 20x24 Polaroids we shot. The room had a very low ceiling, so I had to pop out one of the ceiling tiles so the dark slide could come all the way up. Thanks Granny for your inspiration and your images, we will miss you.

20x24 Wisner Camera on Location

Wayne Gretzky - NHL Slapshot

We have been working hard the past few months and one of the projects we can now talk about is our shoot with Wayne Gretzky for NHL Slapshot. We photographed Wayne and a couple of his kids for the game box and packaging. This new Wii game from EA comes with a hockey stick that holds the "Wiimote". Although I didn't get to challenge Wayne myself during the shoot, it was fun watching him checking the kids and zigging in a few slapshots. For some reason, I don't think I would have had a chance!

A special thanks to my assistants Alisal and Andrew who not only drove the gear from San Diego to LA for the shoot with Wayne, but drove that evening to Vegas for a shoot with Randy Couture the next day.
