An eerie bowl of fruit. Plus how I lit it.
My first freelance assignment for The Tampa Bay Times is the USF NCAA Watch Party.
A photo David Donaldson photographed in 2009 for a New York Times story was relicensed for a New York Review of Books story on public school education, titled “How, and How Not, to Improve the Schools.” David Donaldson, a high school teacher in the Teach for America program, with his students at the Maryland Academy of Technology and Health Sciences, Baltimore, December 2009.
“Hotloading” is Joe Bugleowicz’s photographic memoir of nearly a year driving a tourist bus in Alaska. It’s really good & super quirky. All the photos in the newspaper were made with a film point & shoot & printed by Newspaper Club.

BOY! Doesn’t this post’s title sound cocky!? All that means is Jen Rynda replaced me at the Patuxent Publishing Company when I quit last December. And In case you’re curious, she’s doing a great job. She’s also putting a fresh new face on the Athletes of the Year photos — which, I suppose if I […]

There are all sorts of stories — most funny, some embarrassing — from my trip to NYC in January. And I had every intention of writing them here! (well, maybe not the Bolt Bus bathroom story. that’s an “in person” story.) …but the task became a bit too daunting. And the longer I waited to […]
Flag-laden Simon Penning, age 19, from Guilford, MD, middle, joins other Preakness-goers and uses the cracks in between the the wheelchair accessible portable toilets to urinate. Infrequent rains, beer, and urine, made this particular part of the infield muddier and more pungent than other areas. Blake Andrews recently made a really good and insightful (well, […]
The Strobist, David Hobby.
Like I said in the first NYC Biz Trip post, I used the Luceo Altered States gallery opening at 25CPW as a reason to come up and see editors, and vice versa. But as it turned out, I really needed was to hang out with photo friends, like Kendrick Brinson, seen above. — and maybe […]
Instead of an after dinner mint, our amazing Red Lulu (heads up, their website has audio) waiter brought out a gigantic puff ball of cotton candy!!! …so we did what any civilized person would do — COTTON CANDY FACIAL HAIR! Mike’s quite dapper, no? (MORE PHOTOS BELOW THE JUMP)
For the last four years I’ve spent Christmas Day with my girlfriend Jess and her family. And it’s soooo weird to me. You see, I’m an only child. And I was raised by a single mom. …and, to an extent, my grandparents. For a while, my mom and I actually lived with grandparents and my […]
The world is funny, isn’t it? Or at lest that how it seems to me. …but then again, I’m the guy who laughs too much during movies. This is the second installment of my Best Runts of 2010. The first is here. Can I first start by saying I can’t stand lifestyle images. You know what […]
“That doesn’t look like you!” and “Who is that on your ID?” I get that a lot when people see the picture on my laniard. This image was made back in 2004 by fellow intern Deana Mitchell. I was having a hard time looking “normal” that day, so I decided to look “smarmy,” instead. Since […]
Sally Borghardt’s renovated 1840′s Centreville, MD home is selling for $292,500. Check out the New York Times article and accompanying slideshow. My photos are in the middle. For this shoot I got assignment editor Becky Lebowitz’s approval to use a Nikkor 24mm PC-E — often referred to as a “tilt shift lens” because it does some […]
Grant and Marie are getting married! Believe it or not, but this was shot in a Gaithersburg, MD subdivision — not on a magical hillside. I really didn’t want to make the traditional “updated prom photo” pose, as my girlfriend Jess calls it. Of course I made the safe shots. …we also called them “grandparent” […]
Let me first say that David Hobby is an SEO powerhouse! When he pimps me out my analytics look like a big mountain is stuck in the middle of a desert. So, after getting hit with well over 500 page views within an hour of @strobist ‘s tweet, a few reached out, asking for a post […]
Holy Smokes. You guys see that gigantic visitor’s spike in my google analytics dashboard? That was on the day David Hobby, aka The Strobist, pimped me out on twitter. …his handle is @strobist for those reading this post who didn’t find me through him. 1,835! that’s how many people checked out my blog July 15th, […]
Sometimes photographing another photographer can be intimidating. …sometimes it can be annoying. But I felt neither emotion when I got to photograph David Hobby last week. It was
