Shooting portraits is not only a job for me, It is something I really love doing.
The two most important aspects of photography are lighting and composition, in Portrait photography and headshot photography, unlike other forms of photography I’m commissioned to do, I need to connect and understand how to get my subjects into the mood needed, to get the expressions i’m looking for, I find it to be the most important aspect of portraiture.
I shot this headshot portrait of lovely Caroline Johansen, last Thursday, In the Hopewood location near Hollywood, California.

Creativity and creative thinking is a subject I’m always exploring.
I was happy to hear Cleese mentioning Edward de Bono in this video, I began to find interest in his writings when I was still a photographer’s assistant in training.
I didn’t count them, but I think this presentation has the most versions of “How many _______ it takes to screw a light bulb” told in a single event, Enjoy…
Flying above California’s electricity producing windmills makes for great photography opportunities, this is only one of a large series.
As a part of the If We Live project, I joined Kevin T. Williams when he recorded Tommy Mars. There are many famous musicians I met but Tommy Mars is one of my favorites, I’ve spent many hours listening to him on Frank Zappa’s albums, but being in the same room with him while he was playing a Hammond was a very unique experience.
Hiking in the Malibu area, one of the group pointed me to this sparrow nesting in an abandoned truck’s frame.
It built the nest in a very narrow part of the frame, right above the wind shield, so I couldn’t capture this image using my SLR, but my smart phone went right through.
I snapped this selfie using my Nokia Lumia. I was going up in an elevator and looking up gave me the idea. I’ve used it as my profile picture is some social sites.
