Artist At Work II
The Bay Area definitely saw some incredible weather yesterday. My friend Sara and I decided to head down the coast on a little adventure. As we were leaving, all I could see was incredible clouds everywhere, and questioned if we should have just stayed local. We probably should have! We missed an insane sunset with lightening. That is definitely rare here.

Either way I was pretty stoked on what we got at Davenport. It blow up as well! So can't complain being around some of my favorite coastal spots, in great company and outdoors exploring life.
There were a few other photographers there, so as I like to do, I decided to shoot them as my subject. This is Ken Xu, who I decided to give my card to so we could be in touch and show him this shot. Looks like he has some incredible photos himself, and here is the shot he was shooting when I shot him:

As I always like to say, no beach shoot is successful until I am knee deep in the ocean. Looks like Ken feels the same way!

On another note, I finally got to play with some sweet new filters from my new sponsor +Vü Filters, who is under the same parent company as Induro Tripods. It has been awesome being part of such great companies and people in this industry. I was skeptical about the filters at first (As I have always been satisfied with LEE and Formatt) but am completely blown away by the quality of the holder and the all glass filters. Really excited to use these going forward!

Gotham City SF // A Timelapse Film

View Full Project at: 

This idea came from the aether; it emerged over time. Several years ago (2012) while exploring my passion for black and white photography I found myself wandering into a look I call ‘Gotham’.
I have a passion for timelapse as well, so it wasn’t long before the two processes started to merge in my mind, and the concept for Gotham City SF was born! Over the intervening years I have collected and edited this footage while juggling my freelance career and time working at Lytro (a new camera technology).

This film means a lot to me. It is one of the biggest personal projects I’ve ever worked on.

I searched for music for months. Finally deciding to work with James Everingham Music: a talented 14 year old from the UK. (Now 16) He ended up composing a full custom composition and it came out perfect!

I also want to thank my friend and college David Hultin, for designing the incredible Gotham SF logo for this film. He is another very talented artist that joins me in my business venture: Planet Unicorn.

This is my vision come to life after hours of setting up, shooting, and editing. It is my art and my love for San Francisco, photography, and timelapse.


Thanks to +Induro Benro and +eMotimo LLC  for all their support!

A Favorite Throwback from 2012, when I was at the beginning stages of learning and playing with long exposure photography. I have two shots from this day which still are some all time favs of mine. However the quality and noise just don't match up to my standards anymore, so have been on a mission to create some even better shots from this location. Got some good one the other night, but being as picky as I am now, I will have to keep heading back.

New vs. Old
The old one is so close to gone, it will be cool to see the new span stand alone soon. Here is a picture from a few months ago on an amazing foggy sunrise flight!

San Francisco isn't Gotham. That's New York (or Chicago if you want to be wrong). San Francisco is too colorful, too weird, too positive and too future friendly to be the dark and gritty Gotham City. But Toby Harriman stripped the color of SF in this time lapse and man, the city by the bay looks pretty good when things go dark.

Gotham City SF Tease

I can't believe I am saying this (again lol, as I have said it a few times before) but I am actually putting the final touches on my personal film that I have "slowly" been working on and off over the past couple years. I have literally just been sitting on this for over 6 months waiting to get two different shots. So it feels damm good and I can't wait to unleash this to the wild. Hopefully by mid to the end of this coming week!

I really want to thank everyone who has helped out on this project.

James Everingham Music for creating an incredible original composition for this.

David Hultin for creating the sick logo and branding.

And +Induro, Benro and +eMotimo LLC for the support and for making these shots possible. And The many friends who have helped me through the process with tips and tricks!

Photographer, Designer & Social Media Entrepreneur based in San Francisco, CA.
I am a creative 23 year old, studying Web Design and New Media at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.

When I am not glued to my computer screen, working on my academics, you can find me roaming the city or hunched under a pier, trying to capture a moment. I also enjoy finding and interacting with other artists, learning and discussing new ways to follow our passions.

I grew up in Aspen, Colorado, where I had the opportunity to enjoy skiing, golfing, biking, playing hockey, as well as other outdoor activities. Combining those experiences with the city life has been a wonderful complement.

I left Aspen to go to The Holderness School in Plymouth, New Hampshire. That was an awesome high school experience because that is where my true interest and passion for the arts and design developed and were nurtured.

I am now living my next adventure, here in San Francisco, working to perfect the way I use technology with effective design.
