Over the past few months I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside the editorial direction of my girlfriend, Leigh Patterson, contributing some photography to the women’s brand Apiece Apart.

I recently spent a couple days hiking through the Frio Canyon in the Texas Hill Country taking photos for the Laity Lodge Foundation. There is an quiet calm in this place that is unmistakable. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing the sun brighten the shadows in the river or forget the smell of caliche and cypress on the descent into the canyon. View a photo essay with additional imagery on the foundation’s site.
A while back I got to shoot some favorite spots around Austin for Cereal Magazine’s City Guides. Read/see more here.

After being truly struck by the photographs of Will Adler via his work in various zines and publications over the years, I visited and photographed his solo show last summer in NYC at the Danziger Gallery. Shortly thereafter I was in LA and met up with Will at his home and we ventured out to the beach. This mini day-in-the-life was documented and appeared in the most recent issue of Australian surf and travel magazine, Paper Sea Quarterly. Pick up Vol. 2 Issue 4 on newsstands now or order online via Paper Sea.
My friends over at CWST just launched their SS15 collection that I had the privilege of shooting a few months back on the central California coast. Visit CWST for more info.
Above: photos of the Totokaelo space in Seattle. These images were originally shot for Kinfolk’s City Guide series and were never published — excited to belatedly share a peek into one of the nation’s finest shops.
Above: outtakes from the spring/summer 2015 lookbook I recently shot for Japanese bag and accessory experts Southern Field Industries. The collection is entirely made by hand by Manabu and Keiko Okada in their Saitama studio.

A few months ago I spent a sunny day-in-the-life with the Parton family in Los Angeles. The day took us through the westside of town for breakfast, a market visit, and a surf check at Topanga. In the afternoon we drove east to the downtown Arts District (with visits to their Apolis and Alchemy Works shops) and closed with a jaunt to the Fashion District to Jane Palmer’s Noon Dye Studio.
