Lightleaks - Issue 3

It's that time again! The third issue of Lightleaks is almost ready for press. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. Pardon the plug, but I’m just really excited! There’s a super interview with world-renowned photographer/author and all-around nice guy, Lee Frost. It was a pleasure working with him on it. We’ve also scored some never-before-seen Holga photos of his from Cuba. There are several new features: “Trippin,’” “Treadly Speaking,” “Do-it-Yourself!” and toy cam work by Nigel Amies and Lisa Sanderson. Check out for more info and to pre-order your copy today!

Desert River

We're building a small patio today in our backyard, and in between hacking down renegade dandelions and lugging giant red square bricks around, I'm inside seeking refuge from the early heat of May and posting this photo. A while ago, Travis and I went out to the West Desert so I could take some pictures. We were speeding along I-80 when I saw this blue strip flash in the corner of my eye. We stopped and backed up and saw that the strip was a man-made river in the desert. It was really odd and what was even more weird was that a highway patrolman stopped and told us not to park there but then drove off without making us leave. My first photography run-in with the law! It was a fine day.
