Last month I visited Vienna, Austria, for the first time. I was there assisting my good friend and colleague, David Deal, research the family of Vivian Maier. Her’s is a fascinating story, and David is a lawyer that is working to fill in the blanks in her family tree.Read More
Last week my short video about the reopening of the historic Parkway Theatre played to an audience of supporters of the theater, and its new proprietors, The Maryland Film Festival. It was a really great evening with lots of smiles and excitement. Baltimore celebrities, David Simon (The Wire) and John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Cry-Baby, Hairspray) were there to show their genuine support. It was a great night.Read More
Seems I'm always on the prowl for a smaller camera than my 5D Mark III, but that doesn't sacrifice image quality. I recently picked up the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 and 35mm F2 lens. Per usual my kids and wife (and dog!) have been my test subjects. I have to say, for such a small, and affordable lens, the image quality really is outstanding. In my upcoming trip to Europe I'll definitely be putting it through its paces.

2015 has been the year of making videos that matter. As a (hu)man, women mean a lot to me. My mother is a woman. My wife is also. Heck, I have a feeling my daughter will be one when she grows up.Read More
I was away on Father's Day this year. Not only did this mean no hugs from my kids, no backrubs, and no pampering whatsoever, it also meant that my wife was left to handle EVERYTHING alone. Again.Read More
Lots of travel for work lately. Travel away from the family, away from Baltimore. It can take a lot out of me. Sometimes it feels like it's taking the me out of me.Read More
2015 has been crazy busy so far. In the late winter/early spring I started working with USAID.Read More
This fall I was hired to photograph Thomas Dolby. Everyone knows his hits from the 80s—the biggest being She Blinded Me with Science. But did you know he's heading up a new Sound on Film program at Johns Hopkins? Yes, that's right. Baltimore has just gained a very talented music icon. Well hello, Baltimore. I didn't see you there.
