"loving someone..."

this just sums it all up for me.

"loving someone and being loved is so much to me... you know, i believe if there's any kind of god it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me, but just this little space in between... if there is any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone; sharing something. i know, it's almost impossible to succeed, but, who cares really. the answer must be in the attempt."

last week's shoot

last wednesday's shoot kicked butt! my client just made their image selections and we're all loving the images. so far a resounding success. thanks everyone for the teamwork and for pulling out a stellar shoot! i'll share the images as soon as they're released (read: february).

a legend, an amazing loss

i'm having a hard time pulling myself together over the loss of one of my all-time favorite photographers: larry sultan. he passed away on sunday from cancer and i'm terribly sad. he was an amazingly talented photographer and a lovely man. i knew him only briefly but he was so kind that he allowed me to spend 2 hours one afternoon asking him questions about his work, talking theory and looking at my work. he is one of my great idols and i will always look up to him. knowing he's gone leaves a big hole.

nailing it on the head

i love this quote from this blog post about me. it's translated so the grammar is tricky (i've made it readable) but the meaning is so true:

"Her style of photography is the description of the image, it is more like the life story of the film. Shooting the picture is always in the plot of the change, but at the end of it takes the viewer themselves to put pen to paper to be imagined.

preparing for wednesday's shoot

i'm very jazzed for my shoot on wednesday. we're shooting the collection of a recent graduate of the masters fashion program from the academy of art university. we secured a stunning private residence in san francisco for our location and we will have her wonderful clothes to work with. we have a truly unbelievable stylist joining us and one of my favorite hair/makeup artists on board. the whole day will be great and i can't wait to spend it making magic happen!
