Never forget.... I made this #DayToNight photograph in 2010 on 9/11. Its an image about hope and memory. New Yorker’s continue to move forward yet never forget. Our thoughts are with all those families who lost loved ones. #911#newyork#nyc
The Golden Gate Bridge, built in 1937 has defined the classical beauty that is San Francisco. It’s color is international orange, and the way it changes hue depending on the color of light and fog is nothing short of magical. Every time I crossed this bridge while photographing #CaliforniaOne it always took my breath away.... #goldengatebridge#sanfrancisco#fog#panorama
Shooting for California One I met Kyu, the incredibly fun sunglass vendor on Venice Beach. This panorama image was the first intimate portrait panorama I created, and it opened my eyes to enormous creative possibilities.
On August 2 , 1987 I drove down to Huntington Beach to photograph the iconic surf festival. When I arrived and saw the magnitude of the people on the beach I immediately knew I wanted to do an aerial photograph. The picture is one of my favorites and most iconic from the book.
Back in 1987 I was given the opportunity to do my first book on, “California One: The Pacific Coast Highway”. It was then & it remains now one of my favorite places to photograph. The concept for the book was a simple idea, make Northern California look cool & Southern California hot. I drove 725 miles , over an 18 week period, capturing the fleeting moments of my journey. I photographed from multiple perspectives & formats to capture the scale & essence of this remarkable highway . Over the last few months of sharing my Day to Night series , I wanted to introduce all of you to a different body of work, one which I created using film only. Enjoy the ride!
