Do you ever find yourself saying YES to things you know you probably shouldn't and NO to things you wish you could do? Why is it so hard to only make decisions that bring us joy? There are so many reasons: the need to make money, the need to please others, the need to be who we feel others think we should be.

I've made a big change just a couple of weeks ago to eliminate those joy-sucking...

“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”
― Richard Feynman

In my house, we invented a day called Muse Day, which happens every Wednesday. It is a day where, morning until night, we seek and digest inspiration to aid in making our biggest dreams a reality. Whatever motivates, inspires, teaches, makes us think differently and...

"Between Worlds", self-portrait (this morning, before sunrise, on an adventure).

My guess is that if you're here, you'd consider yourself a dreamer. Or, you like dreams. Or, you have dreams. I'm always being told that I live in my own special world, but people don't know the half of how true that is. My world is amazing to me because I create it as intentionally as I can. This morning, I...

What a community we've built here in the name of art and kindness and being different and wild and authentically ourselves! It's high time we introduced ourselves to one another. I'll go first for anyone who is new here, and maybe even for those who have been here a long time. After all, people change. Please leave your introduction below, with any link you may want people to follow <3

A topic that I find compelling is what we do when we find ourselves in darkness - how do we react, lash out, pull others in? I was in Thailand when I found the inspiration for this image at the White Temple, looking at tons of sculpted hands reaching out from pits. I thought, immediately, of creating an image around it. Some people, when in darkness, pull others down with them. Others reach...

Over a year ago I had an idea for an experimental little film that would be shot mostly underwater - a visual soundscape. For too long I stopped myself from creating video for fear I would let myself down, but no longer. The moment I had the idea I called up my favorite cinematographer, booked a house with a black bottom pool in LA, and made the drive out to shoot. The little film is called...

What is your biggest dream right now?

I often feel most connected with people when we all talk about our fears, and with dreams come fear inevitably, but let's shift focus from fear to opportunity; from fear to imagination. What are you dreaming of right now that you so fully desire to come true?

My dream is to publish a novel; to create an intensely personal and dark photo series; to help...

This is a very old image created in 2009 when I had been shooting for less than a year. Even so, as many of those images strike me from that year, it is a raw and honest reflection of my imagination and way of thinking. There was so much that I had not yet mastered technically, but images like this one never relied on perfection, only true expression.

I work differently now, think...

Isn't it astounding how much life we have inside us? How much we can give and create and imagine and share? Our power lies in the ability to provoke change or to change. To recognize our power gives us power.

I had a vision of this image - a red field, a red stool, a red dress. All of it so clearly illustrated in my mind. I had to deconstruct why I was so drawn to it. In my process, an image...

Today is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. I have Fibromyalgia and feel the effects daily. For me it manifests as fatigue, joint paint and nerve issues. However, let me say loud and clear, that I have a great natural pain management routine and I'm feeling good overall. I keep this part of my life largely hidden because I don't feel that it needs to define me or be omnipresent.

I created this...

#FailureFriday inspires me to be honest and vulnerable in a time when things seem a little too glossy and polished. This week I share about my anxiety, and how I worked to overcome it through creating and community.

"Balancing", self-portrait
Speed Edit: [ Youtube.com Link ]

Do you more often feel balanced or balancing? I am a very grounded person. I really like having control over everything in my life. Sometimes that goes too far in my desire to control the people around me, the future, and my success. These are not things we can control, nor should we try to such an extent. But still I do, and I...

Today brings a new edition of #FailureFriday where I encourage everyone to be open about failure to build a stronger and more honest community.

I photographed this five years ago. I never hated this picture but never could quite finish it. I couldn't bring myself to delete it. Today I opened it up and started editing again, like I've done countless times over the years, and it felt a little...

The best part about reaching a point of confidence in your craft is the privilege of sharing it with others. To be able to teach, inspire, motivate or just plain show your way of creating to someone else can help that person to find their own style or voice. Ever since I was little I wanted to be a teacher. I always thought I would go for high school English. I just wanted to show people all...

Yesterday I started editing some images I had shot a few weeks back with no notion of if they would work out or not. I pulled old stock images I had taken years ago combined with one that I purchased online as well and started playing. My friend Dave Junion is always telling me to play in my craft. It is too easy to be too serious. We put such pressure on ourselves to create something good...

"Right now I see my photography as a wave I am trying to catch. I paddle hard and fast but each time it comes I miss it. The wave isn’t right. That wave was meant for someone else. I sit and wait, I try again, and still it is wrong. I feel like I’m not on water at all, but some dried up space that leaves me wedged between rocks. There is maturity in recognizing this process. There is peace in...

Thinking about my connection to this beautiful Earth is where my inspiration has always come from. The cycle of life and death that is ever-abundant fills me with enough ideas to last a lifetime. I have always marveled at the dirt on a forest floor, wondering how many plants and animals long deceased I was touching with my bare feet. I've sat looking at so many rivers knowing it is never the...

I spent the last 10 days in Brazil. It is an amazing place absolutely full of life. And while I had many adventures there and met incredible people, something even more amazing happened. I got to spend 10 days with my dad. Together we adventured through Brazil on his first out-of-country experience. We hiked a waterfall, explored a cave, drove through a massive city as well as winding dirt...
