I spent time this past February in Seattle photographing artists and designers for what would result in a full week of Seattle-based features for my friends at Sight UnseenAbove: three outtakes from each profile with link to the original feature beneath each.

Above: The cover, spread and personal outtakes from a sunny afternoon I recently spent in the LAND design studio in Austin, Texas. Ryan Rhodes & Caleb Everitt reformed a defunct medical supply warehouse into their spacious design studio that also doubles as a motorcycle workshop. The design duo have been highly sought-after and also highly imitated as of late for their patented hand-drawn approach and tight aesthetic. Monster Children covered the story on their blog as well as in print for Issue 42, which is available at newsstands now.

I had the honor of photographing Texas-based designer and artist Alyson Fox and her beautiful home/studio not once, but twice in the recent months.

Presidio / Brewster


These two West Texas counties border each other and their respective towns therein, Marfa and Alpine. Leigh and I paid a visit to each on our route back to Austin from Santa Fe last week.

Chimayo / Truchas


Leigh and I spent last weekend with some dear friends in their new home state of New Mexico. After a late winter snow in Santa Fe cleared we trekked into the mountains and explored the towns of Chimayo and Truchas.
