The Catcus Man.


This is my good friend Jake "Cactus Man" Luce.

He lives in Big Sur and works at Nepenthe and makes for a good portrait.

Color and Texture

Bob Dylan Plays Monterey.


Last weekend, the classic Bob Dylan performed at the Monterey Fairgrounds.

I got on shooting it for Relix magazine with my good buddy Stuart who was writing it for them, but since they were allowing absolutely zero press access and were not allowing professional cameras under any circumstances, I had to make do with Stuart's point-and-shoot, so I did.

Working with Bugatti


Car week was pretty exciting this year as my client for a few days was Bugatti.

Simply put, they make nice cars, and that is a bit of an understatement.

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport was released as the fastest car in the world for a mere $2 million. I photographed the same car that set the land-speed record at 258 miles-per-hour and the driver who did it.


The super sport can be had in a few color, including a blue that really shows off the carbon fiber shell.

My favorite event all year has come and gone, but below are all my images from spending four days in the media "prison" at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
