I’m excited about an interview with me that was just published by the Berkeleyside news site. Tracey Taylor, cofounder and editor of Berkeleyside, interviewed me and wrote up the piece. (UPDATE: She also came to my studio for East Bay Open Studios. Nice to meet you, Tracey!) Thanks to everyone who left compliments about my work, “liked” the article on Facebook, and tweeted about it.
Carolyn Edlund, who aims to get exposure for emerging artists through her blog, Artsy Shark, posted an interview with me. In it, I tell the story of how I got started, what’s unique about night photography, how I spend those long minutes in the cold while I’m waiting for the film to be exposed, a thought experiment, my advice for budding artists, and more.
Dan Duhrkoop, who blogs about art for artists and other art lovers at Empty Easel, wrote a very nice review of my work. Dan told me that if he were a photographer, my photos are exactly what he would want his to look like. I believe him, since his paintings depict things I would photograph.
I’m proud to say that Bench and Poles was selected from among many to represent and help promote the East Bay Open Studios in Diablo magazine this month. As you may know, Diablo is the magazine of the East Bay (a region east of San Francisco). The exposure puts my work in front of thousands more art lovers in the region.

7×7 magazine, which covers the San Francisco lifestyle, chose Clubbing as one of only 10 images for their “Bring on the Night” photo competition. The finalists’ images were printed in this month’s issue.
