  1. Jose Antonio Vargas for The Washington Post

    Date 01 Dec 2014
    I got a call from The Washington Post asking if I was available to photograph a portrait the next morning at the Lincoln Memorial. Luckily, I was able to push back my departure time for a trip I was making the next day and got to shoot the assignment for…

  2. Senior Portraits with My Sister in Washington D.C.

    Date 08 Oct 2014
    Late this summer, my family came to visit me in Washington D.C. While visiting, my youngest sister asked if I would be willing to take her senior portraits. I don’t normally do this type of work, but I’ll do just about anything for my family. We, including my pup Fritz,…

  3. CIA Deputy Director Avril Haines for Washingtonian Magazine

    Date 22 Sep 2014
    As I was sitting on my couch one night, I got a call from a photographer who I really look up to and admire their work a lot. “What are you doing June 7th?” he asked. Initially, all I could think was, “If anything, I’ll cancel it.” After checking my…

  4. Battle of Guadalcanal Veteran Glenn Hepler

    Date 03 Sep 2014
    As I mentioned last week, I was fortunate enough to photograph two WWII veterans while visiting my hometown in western Pennsylvania. Thanks to a good friend from high school, he put in touch with his grandfather, Glenn Hepler, who served in the 260th Ordnance Medium Maintenance Company. While working with…

  5. Battle of Okinawa Veteran Bob Miller

    Date 26 Aug 2014
    A couple weeks ago, I traveled to Pennsylvania to visit my family and celebrate my grandfather’s 90th birthday. If time and schedules allowed it, I thought that it would also be a great opportunity to meet and photograph WWII veterans who live in my hometown. Asking around on Facebook, I…

  6. WWII P-51 Mustang Pilot Captain Robert G. Kurtz

    Date 19 Aug 2014
    When I first began this project back in April, meeting a veteran pilot from WWII was something that I hoped would eventually happen. I’ve always been fascinated by the aircraft used during the war, especially the P-51 Mustang. By chance, I was telling a new friend at a bachelor party…

  7. Photographing the 2014 Washington Kastles Season

    Date 05 Aug 2014
    For the fourth straight year in a row, I’ve had the incredible opportunity of working with the Washington Kastles tennis team here in D.C. I remember sitting on the court during my very first match in 2011, turning to my friend and fellow photographer Rich Kessler, and asking, “Wouldn’t it…

  8. Bike Messengers for The Washington Post Magazine

    Date 23 Jun 2014
    This was certainly one of the more physically demanding projects I’ve ever done, not to mention dangerous. It all started with a simple idea to reach out to any bike messenger that I could get in touch with and ask if they would be willing to sit/stand for portrait. As…

  9. D-Day Veteran Portraits for The Washington Post

    Date 09 Jun 2014
    You may not know this, but I graduated college with a degree in History. Yes, you read that correctly, History. I knew that I never wanted to teach the subject, and everyone would ask what I planned to do with it if not teach. Frankly, I had no idea. Like…

  10. Photographing Anthony Woods

    Date 27 May 2014
    In 2009, my friend Anthony Woods decided to run for Congress in a special election to fill a vacant seat after Rep. Ellen Tauscher became Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. Without a proper portrait, Anthony asked if I would be willing to photograph his official portrait…
