Season's Greetings

At the close of another year, I am again humbled that making art and messing around with pictures is what puts gas in my car.  I look forward to making more creative and inspiring work with all of my talented crew and collaborators.  Look for my new website to launch in early 2013 at

Wise words for $18.21

1. I just gradated from photography school and need to get a job.
2. I am reaching a successful mid career but wonder if I could be doing something better .
3. I hear that cameras now don't need film.

If any of these sounds like you, you should buy this book.  I mention it because along with photographers Chase Jarvis, Mark Katzman, and Dan Winters, there's an interview with me in this resource from ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers).  Buy it here.

I'm on pages 240-242

Mormon lust

The Tony Award winning play, The Book of Mormon is sold out into April and it's barely open yet.
There's something of a fervor around the tickets to this apparently raunchy tale told by the creators of South Park. (can you tell I've not seen it?)

Time Out Chicago had the idea to shoot a Mormon missionary who's strayed into the theater district into the clutches of ticketless would be theater goers.
A behind the scenes video of the shoot is here.
