In case you’re in or visiting the SF Bay Area, my friend Vladimir Panasenko has an exhibition of his photography currently running at the Leica Store San Francisco. There’s also a reception this Thursday evening, May 7th, starting at 6pm.

Vlad’s been shooting the streets of SF for 30 years and is one of the most committed street shooters I know. He de-chromed and de-lugged his eight M2s and named each after different Disney characters. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Vlad and trading prints in the mail with him. I’m really stoked he’s getting his due with this show! Check out the reception and exhibition if you’re around.

Film or Digital?

March 3rd, 2015 Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

For me, photographs that communicate strongly have come from the photographer’s eye, imagination, skill, understanding of light, etc and speak through their ability to release narrative and stir my imagination. I have yet to view a photograph where capture medium played a significant part of that. Film or digital, no difference to me. Just sayin’…

Shout out to Travis Jensen and Foto/Mish

I’d like to give a huge shout out and props to close friend and superb photographer, Travis Jensen. His star has been rapidly ascending over the last four or five years and he recently made the decision to strike out on his own persuing his photography on a full time basis. Leaving his excellent and secure downtown job he’s held for the last ten years was definitely a gutsy move. But, he was so involved with various commercial shoots for national brands, engaged in many personal neighborhood projects, and, with a growing backlog of future photography projects, it was a necessary move and made sense.

I’m 1000% certain he’ll do a bang up job going forward. He’s worked super hard over the years to get to this point and deserves the success that’s now coming his way.

Travis also just introduced his own line of street wear under his label Foto/Mish. Foto/Mish is a reflection of how he shoots on the street; i.e. being on a Mission where his street shooting is Focused on Truthful Outcomes. His photographs and his engagements with people he encounters on the street have always been an expression of that core belief and it’s how he lives his life. His series of street wear with some of his best San Francisco images on the front speak to that view as well. His clothing line is made up of T-shirts, hoodies, caps, and skateboard decks – all with different San Francisco images he’s made over the years. The printing and overall design is first class.

Head on over to fotomish.com to check out his line and see what it’s all about. And while you’re at it, be sure and stop by his website at travisjensenphoto.com and take a look at some of his excellent urban photography.

It’s obviously that time of year. People running around, shopping for Christmas. I snapped the above on Stockton Street, just before the tunnel on the downtown side.

While poking around on the internet yesterday I came across this quote, below. I’m not one for motivational messages or posters, but elements of the message resonated so I thought I’d pass it on for Thanksgiving…

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today
and creates a vision for tomorrow.” – Melody Beattie

MacArthur light

MacArthur BARTThere’s nothing better than discovering a patch of nice light and having a camera with you at the ready. Any camera will do. The photograph above was snapped with my iPhone at the MacArthur BART station in Oakland. For me, color photographs work best shot in light that’s warm, and even better when that light is complemented with nearby deep shadows. That helps create a mood that’s pleasing to my eye.
