New Video!

I shot this with my friend Jason in Guangzhou, China.  It was this massive fishing dock behind our hotel.  it was bustling all night and day.  It's a bunch of raw clips edited together; pretty simple edit.


Warning:  It may make you queazy!

Video of the Week: NASA

This is the second time NASA made it for VotW.  It's kinda unfair since they can shoot where no other photographer can shoot.  Enjoy!  Watch in HD, full-screen if you can.

Photographer of the Month: Mary Ellen Mark

Mary Ellen Mark is street photographer who inspired my photography in college.  Her revealing, uncropped images were an inspiration for me as a photojournalist.  I never liked cropping my images too much.  I shoot for what I wanted in the camera rather in the computer.

I believe in today's world of iPhones and camera-phones, everyone does some form of street photography now.  Usually for humor, cuteness, updates of their own life or news, but Mark's photograph's are deeper than that.  They are reminiscent of paintings of realsim in the 1850's.  Like she explains in the video, it reveals truth.  Mary Hellen Mark is the modern day realism artist.
