Filson, USA


A few months ago, I had the distinct pleasure of visiting the new Filson headquarters. The well-lit factory is on the bottom floor with the offices and showrooms above in the beautiful warehouse just south of downtown Seattle. Renown for their heritage (c. 1897) and quality of outdoor goods and luggage, Filson is bigger and better than ever.
The above photos are an addendum from the original feature on Nothing Major.

JBM



I’ve had the pleasure of traveling and playing for the past few weeks with JBM. Hailing originally from Montreal and residing primarily in Brooklyn for the past half-decade, JBM’s music is one that both haunts and intrigues the human spirit. Highly Recommended.
Above are some photos from recent shows and a video session featuring a track from his 2012 release, Stray Ashes.

LOMA SANTA: Update


Thanks to all my friends and family that came out to the opening reception of Loma Santa at Spartan last week.
The photos will be up until mid-October in case you missed the opening.

Above are the 12 photos that were printed for this show.
They are all 12×18″ chromira prints in custom, handmade frames from Hat Trick Woodworking and a few are still available for purchase.
Please check in at Spartan for more info and availability.

 

I-84 (Part 1)











A few weeks ago, we drove from Vancouver, BC back to Texas in just three days. The most epic part of the journey was around dusk the first night on a stretch of Interstate 84 between Baker City, Oregon and Boise, Idaho. These images were taken from the backseat of our vehicle at 70mph.

Loma Santa


Excited to announce LOMA SANTA, a solo exhibition of recent works. I’ll be showing some selected landscape photographs at SPARTAN in Austin, Texas in September. The opening reception will be September 12th featuring an assortment of Mexican beers and food provided by Contigo. See you friends there.

Ryan Allan








I’ve been following the work of Ryan Allan for a while now. His photography revolves primarily around the skateboard industry but that’s really just a fragment of his breadth of expertise. I recently (and gratefully) obtained a copy of his printed portfolio book that sheds a nice light on a sample of some of his works. View Ryan’s work online and watch an interview on his insight and approach to photography.

Interstate 8





I have been traveling the past week from Austin back west to California through the desert stretches. I never tire of the high skies and solitary land of the Southwest US. These images were taken through the passenger window while driving along Interstate 8 between Tucson and San Diego.
