Death Valley in December

Death Valley in the winter is something all should experience. Calm and crowd-less, yet steadfast in outrageous beauty, the desert at this time of year beckons those seeking refuge in the quiet stillness.

One summer week in Maine…

One summer week in Maine, picking wild blueberries and swimming in rivers with my love, threw me head over heels for this forested state. Though a photograph cannot capture its all encompassing beauty, please enjoy a few of these moments frozen on 35mm film.

In Studio with Ella Vos

Shot on film, singer Ella Vos seduces the lens in her own unique and ethereal way.

Rising star, Ella Vos, just released a new single this week and it is already well on its way to one million plays on Spotify in just seven days. (Check it out here!) “You Don’t Know About Me” is a powerful song about insensitivity and bigotry. “I wrote a song about ignorance,” Ella states in an interview with music blog, Pigeons and Planes. “About all those little comments we combat throughout the day. About choosing to replace those words with empowering statements. This is my body. About learning to be strong. About not letting anyone tell me who I should or shouldn’t be.”

The video premieres on Refinery29 on Monday, May 22 and on Vevo on Tuesday, May 23.

Spring in Death Valley

Death Valley National Park through the lens of my AE-1.

Desolate and otherworldly, Death Valley’s seemingly lifeless terrain comes to life in the light-leaked lens of my 35mm AE-1.
