Living next to the flower district is one of the joys of living in DTLA. Every morning trucks pull up to deliver fresh flowers to the market and there are so many fatalities that happen in the transfer. I’ve always tried to push my work into the gorgeous-but-uncomfortable way, so these mixes of colors, sludge, cigarette butts, and fresh blooms is in line with that.
These have been shot on everything to my full frame, to my phone and a disposable. Whatever is closest, usually. There’s usually a guy who gets paid to sweep up chasing me out of the way.
Hey hey! Episode 2 is out and that means you can check it out on Vimeo or the HowardandTodd site. And if you’re feeling especially generous, leave us a review on Stareable.com. It REALLY helps us grab some eyeballs. Thanks for watching!
My buddy Madeline Northway was visiting Los Angeles a couple weeks ago and hit up Joshua Tree for a photo trip. The result was this beautiful set of custom postcards she had printed. We are penpals, incidentally, and both huge fans of printed work and mail so this really fits right in. I ordered a set last week and they look perfect! You can see more of Madeline’s work here and order your own set of cards.
I’ve been sitting on this for SO LONG, I am really happy that it gets to see the light of day. My buddy Brandon and I worked on this web-series together for the last two years. I directed and co-wrote, he produced and did sound. Patrick Churvis was our absolutely patient, brilliant and talented DP.
Give this a watch and do me a HUGE favor and share this with your friends, your mom, your roommate. But seriously, a repost on Facebook would mean the world to us. Hope you enjoy!

Sometimes I’m just so overwhelmed with color and saturation. Once a year in Cali, blood oranges come into season and I try to make some photos of them. Over two years, this might be the most successful one.
