Ghosts of Glen Park

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013 Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments »

Since I find myself riding BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) a lot getting into and out of San Francisco, I'm always on the lookout for through-my-window photo possibilities. Over the years I have taken my share of urban landscape photos. But ...

Bjorn, in the early morn

Thursday, January 24th, 2013 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

This is an engaged street portrait captured on Mission Street, probably around 20th,  in San Francisco. Bjorn turned out to be a great subject and was very charismatic. Out of the 4 or 5 photos I made of him, I ...

Tenderloin Faces

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

It has been awhile, about a year and a half, since Tenderloin USA Photo Journal was wrapped up by myself and project partner Travis Jensen. It was a great photojournalistic project for both of us. The best part though, was ...

Through storefront glass

Monday, January 14th, 2013 Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments »

I have always enjoyed meeting people on the street for engaged street portraits. Usually that involves approaching a potential subject, introducing myself, having a bit of conversation, and then ultimately making a portrait. The one up above, which appears engaged, was ...

San Francisco

Saturday, December 29th, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

Any Alcatraz inmate thinking about escape from the island would ultimately have to confront the frigid waters of San Francisco Bay. Over the 29 years Alcatraz was used as a federal penitentiary, 34 inmates were involved in various escape attempts. Of ...

An outstanding street workshop. It’s about observation, not confrontation.

  [juicebox gallery_id="15"][column width="315px" padding="20px"]Street photography is not a macho endeavor. Or one where it needs to be practiced in a chest-out manner. Yet in the last few years I've seen examples of shooters walking that as if it's indigenous to ...

Defining Your Vision

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

‎ "As a photographer, defining your personal vision is much more than finding a style."   Very wise words... My good friend and fellow photographer David Sumner will be conducting an afternoon workshop in San Francisco on January 12. If you're looking to explore ...

Yesterday I went on a whopping 8 mile trek through San Francisco with photo friend Travis Jensen, covering a lot of different areas. I saw this scene unfolding from a distance and got into position across the street to get ...

Ocean Beach

Thursday, November 29th, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

Ocean Beach, San Francisco. I love it out there, being so tranquil, open, and unhurried. Still, there's plenty to explore photographically on and around the beach itself, the walk along The Great Highway, and in the surrounding neighborhoods of homes ...

Photography is Not a Style

  San Francisco documentary photographer, instructor, and friend Emilio Banuelos was recently interviewed by The Candid Frame's Ibarionex Perello. Every photographer, whether beginner or seasoned, who shoots on the street should check out the 40 minute interview. Among other subjects, Emilio talks ...

Showing respect. Getting it back.

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments »

I love people! And that's why I love shooting on the street. I've photographed people from all walks of life as candid street photography and as street portraiture of strangers I encounter. Each time the experience is a little bit different and ...

View from The Rock

Friday, November 9th, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

Starting back in 2003 I became really interested in Alcatraz. So much so that I ended up taking six photo trips to the island through the end of 2006, two of which were overnight weekend treks where I had my ...

Corey, in color

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

Lately I've been going back to some older images that I had originally processed in black and white, and taking another look at them processed in color. Corey up above was originally rendered in B&W for the Tenderloin USA project ...

  It's very rare when I write about the camera I shoot with. To me, cameras are just tools. And for shooting street pix it really doesn't make much difference which one is used. They all work. And they all have ...

Even more B&W... This is a posed street portrait from San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair, snapped a couple weeks ago. It's tough shooting people on the street at events where it's extremely crowded and cluttered. Best thing to do is ...
