BigZona Burlesque Visits the Monte Vista Hotel

mahoney_20130714_2879A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of interacting with and shooting the always fabulous BigZona Burlesque Troupe. This time we took over the roof the the historic Monte Vista Hotel in downtown Flagstaff, Ariz. The monsoon clouds were just forming and the sun was setting in the west. This is one location in town that isn’t opened to photographers or anyone for that matter, very often, I felt quite privileged to be given the access. Please head over to the bZb Facebook page to see more of the images from this series and the other shoots we have put down..

I am participating in a collaborative photo exhibit at the Flagstaff Photography Center opening April 5th. There is a pre-opening party and discussion Thursday, April 4th where the participating artist and other fashion minded people will be discussing how fashion inspires them. If you are in or near Flagstaff, Ariz. during the first three weeks of April, don’t miss this exhibit. I have a bunch of new work showing and would love to see some of your faces.

BigZona Burlesque

I have been working with an up-and-coming burlesque troupe here in Flagstaff. The BigZona Burlesque Project is an up and coming vaudeville burlesque-circus show slated for 2014. Although only in it’s infancy, this group of creatives is sure to delight. Check out their Facebook Page for some preview photos of everyone and to stay up to date with this project. More to come as I have it to share…



Coffee Portraits or Land of The Lost Roll pt. 4

On a recent cleaning/organizing binge I discovered several lost or forgotten rolls of film kicking around my room. Here is  a short series taken from one of those rolls…

I love coffee more than just about anything. Sharing it with friends is part of the experience that appeals to me. Here are some friends I shared coffee with sometime early last fall.

Despite the metadata the slide show tries to provide, these were all shot on my Nikon FM on Ilford Pan F+.

Something Stylish

Recently a friend wanted to do a quick photo shoot so he could have something to post on his Tumblr for a notorious Tuesday themed hash-tag. While we did get this image (it is displayed below) I admire this friend’s classic rocker style and wanted to shoot a little of that as well…click an image to enter the slideshow…

Self-Portrait Preview

Early this fall I began work on a series of self portraits. Not portraits of me specifically, but portraits taken by the subjects themselves…I left my gear set up all the time and had the camera on a wireless trigger with a large mirror set up behind. Anyone who stopped by the house was requested to stand in for a few portraits exactly as they were. I felt that if the subjects knew the exact instant they were to be photographed (by pressing the remote shutter button) their reactions, poses and everything else would be more genuine or at least somehow different than if I were to stand behind the camera and decide when the moment was right. The progression from the first photo a subject took until the last is often quite interesting. Often they started unsure, shy and timid, then progressed to some state of enjoyment. Although the full series is not presented here, this is a small preview of a few favorites…

The device you can see in most of the subjects hands is the remote trigger. Although this project is ongoing, I have been at a standstill on it for several months, stop by sometime and take your portrait if you are in the neighborhood…

‘Best’ of 2012

Here on the last day of 2012 I have compiled a ‘Best’ of reel (I use the term ‘best’ loosely) These images represent my creative journey this year, and while I may have shot better work, these are some of my favorites. Click on an image to enter the slide show and enjoy…they are in approximately the following order…compositions, disco-tec, studio portrait, location portrait, critters…

A fine film stock, for a fine morning…Nikon FM, Nikon 50mm f/1.8, Ilford F+ Pan 50

Some People I know

Developed two new rolls yesterday. The following were shot quickly, usually just as the subject became aware their photo was being taken. I have been getting into the flow of my new camera (Nikon FM) we operate fairly smoothly and quickly together. Without further adieu, some friends… Continue reading
