The May issue of Diablo Magazine introduced me to Courtney E. Martin, an Oakland-based author and social and political activist. To accompany the article that highlights the future of feminism, I photographed Courtney with her youngest daughter in the shared outdoor space of her cohousing community. Inspired by the many influential women in the East Bay!
I don't often get the opportunity to photograph art, especially not 24-foot-wide metal sculptures. Below is Ned Kahn's "Seed Vortex" featured this Spring at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek. Visit the gallery for a closer look at this rotating spectacle!
Shooting for the East Bay Regional Park District and Regional Parks Foundation is always inspiring work. For the Winter 2018 issue of Compass Magazine, I was introduced to Nancy and Gary Harrington who are dedicated to making our parks even more enjoyable for years to come. Below are images from a morning spent at Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area in Pleasanton where a new interpretive pavilion is being created thanks to the support of Nancy and Gary.
The fact that they're the cutest couple ever is just a bonus.
