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!

It's not every day that you meet a living legend. A recent assignment for Diablo Magazine sent me to the Alameda home of opera singer Frederica "Flicka" von Stade. Take a peek at the portrait below featured in the April issue!

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.
