On November 8th, 2014, we set out on our west coast adventure, leaving our home in NYC for SF. Here are just a select few images from our little trip we took down the west coast before settling into San Francisco. A little mix of Washington, Oregon and California. 

Dropbox Jobs Page

I recently had the pleasure of working with Dropbox on a photoshoot for their new Jobs page. It was one of my first jobs since moving out to San Francisco, and it felt good to be actively collaborating again. Below are some shots from the shoot. Thanks for having me, Dropbox!

And some in context:

Zebi Williams

I recently had the opportunity to photograph Zebi Williams for Refinery29 in her Tribeca home. Not only is she beautiful and funny, but also incredibly intelligent. She's the founder of Lil Ragagamuffin Summer Camp, a charity summer camp for children in Jamaica.  And, she also has her own jewelry line called Born. You can read the full feature on Refiner29, here. Below are some of my favorites. 

Slow Factory Spring 2014

A recent photoshoot with Slow Factory for their Spring 2014 line. Simply put, they are Nasa satellite images printed on silk. 

“ALL OF THE ROCKY AND METALLIC MATERIAL WE STAND ON, THE IRON IN OUR BLOOD, THE CALCIUM IN OUR TEETH, THE CARBON IN OUR GENES WERE PRODUCED BILLIONS OF YEARS AGO IN THE INTERIOR OF A RED GIANT STAR. WE ARE MADE OF STAR-STUFF.”

— Carl Sagan

Bits and pieces

More food and drink continued during our trip. One of the highlights for me was visiting with my younger brother Stephen, and his wife Elodie, in Grenoble. Other highlights included snowboarding, lounging at home, and just being for a couple of days.

Col du Granier

One of my favorite things to do when I go to France is to take 'photo hikes' in the surrounding areas near my parent's home.  Le Col du Granier did not disappoint. It seemed as if nature was showing off to us that day, with her theatrical weather, gusty winds and impending rain–all the while with streaks of light cutting through the clouds. 

Paris

Over the holidays, Aaron and I spent a few days in Paris before spending time with my family in the Alps. We weren't interested in doing many touristy things, we mainly wanted to soak in the city through good food and good wine. Which, I'm happy to say, we were very successful at doing so.  Here are some photos of our little adventures. Photos below are mainly shot with a Fuji xPro 1, a new-to-me camera that I'm trying to get in the habit of using more often.
