I took this picture at Studio34 back in 2013 for their yoga teacher training manual. In the next couple weeks, I’m putting together a community yoga photo event.  It will be similar to my How Philly Moves sessions, but rather than featuring dance, we’ll be doing yoga postures. (Please help me spread the word! Interested? Signup form is here. )…

An invitation to Interfaith work

I met Imam Miller last spring while photographing the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia‘s annual concert & awards presentation (he’s on their board, and one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.) It was a gorgeous evening, and one whose importance is all the more important today as recent events in Paris (and the unfortunate reactions to them) highlight the need for greater interfaith understanding and c…

Jacques Tiziou, circa 1975, by Jean-Pierre Martin Long before I was a photographer, my father was one. He specialized in the aerospace industry, and chronicled a large part of mankind’s quest to explore space. Over the course of his career, he’s amassed an impressive archive of both historical documents and collectible memorabilia from the space program. Now, as he transitions into retirement, we’re looking for…

As I’ve been talking about my Everyone Is Photogenic project (deadline to make it happen is 11:11am on Oct 10!), it’s taken me on a trip down memory lane. The project has it’s roots back in 2003, when I first threw myself into photographing the Fringe Festival. Join me in a little Fringe Flashback to 2003……

  In discussing my Everyone Is Photogenic project, I already told you one powerful story about one of the patients that I met while serving with Mercy Ships in W. Africa. Now I want to introduce you to some of the beautiful engineers who help power that ship, and while I’m at it, we can do a bit of photo-geekery about some of the technical & lighting challenges of creating portraits in a ship’s engine room, and I’ll g…

Everyone Is Photogenic: A story from Togo…

What would make someone want to hide their smile? Over in the updates and comments on my Everyone Is Photogenic project, we’ve had some discussion about portraying people that are “traditionally attractive” (whatever that means) versus folks  “who might not be seen on the street as “attractive”. Of course, the inspiration for this project is that I find beauty in every person that I see, but t…

Just some cats…

These are some pretty darn cute cats: (WARNING: This post is a classic bait-and-switch…) Yes, this adorable heart-shaped snuggle-cuddle-pile of hugging kitten cuteness is a regular sight in my house this fall, as my housemate happens to be mother to two of the cutest cats in the universe. …
