the shot

There are a few signature shots I love to take.

[No, not those kind of shots. Though if you have to know I would say I found a couple favorites not too long ago one night at the MAC club – namely chocolate cake and lemon drop. At one point jello shots got me into some “hot” (well actually cold) water on my 21st birthday, but that’s an entirely separate story.]

Now back to photography… I love black and white with the least possible amount of light, I love shadows and skies, I love taking shots from the ground looking up at a group of friends faces, and I love repeat photography. Recently I was able to repeat a portrait shot in one of my favorite places – the Getty Villa in Malibu, California

I photographed my brother there last spring and this year I found myself with the chance to shoot friends in the same location. I don’t know what it is about this place – the natural light, the strong architectural features, the symmetry, the texture. Or the way that all those things make the people I’m photographing feel. I love capturing that on film.
