Faces of The Playa | Burning Man 2015

What an amazing adventure and incredible people! If Salvador Dalí and Dr Seuss made a magical land for adults to play, It would be Burning Man. Happy to say I can mark this one off the bucket list. I'm already looking forward to going back to good ol' Black Rock City. Everyone needs to experience this at least once in their life. 

To the beautiful humans that let me take their portrait--I am so grateful. 

All images shot in 35mm Kodak Portra film and have not been edited. 

Viva Las Vegas

When we first arrived in Las Vegas I had a conversation with the cab driver who happened to also be a photographer. He warned me to "not take the stereotypical photos every photographer takes". My response was that I've never seen those photographs and I've never seen this city, so, my perspective is completely unique. So, here's to hoping these images aren't like those that every photographer takes of Vegas. 

A random collection of images because, well, Vegas is pretty random. This city certainly has character! Lights, camera, action...

Stone + Arrow

You know that necklace or set of rings that have basically become part of your body because you never take them off? Liz Costa of Stone + Arrow makes that kind of jewelry. I really enjoyed photographing these original beauties! You can get your own handcrafted piece at www.stoneandarrow.com.
