This is the shoot I did with Tim and Nicki Bluhm for their Duets album at my home & studio last summer. I also shot a little video of them singing that day:

Their music is so beautiful, you can buy it here. My previous shoot with Nicki for her Driftwood album can be seen HERE.
NEWS! Nicki & Tim are going to be performing for us at my Bay Area Workshop that’s coming up in April! more info here.

Shot on digital, Polaroid, 35mm film, Holga, & expired disposable film camera.

I loved this simple and sweet wedding, I love everything about these two, and I am addicted to Counter Culture Coffee– the company which Peter is the co-owner and Coffee Director of. Since he sent me a gift of a few bags of coffee- it’s all we’ve been drinking… thank you Peter and Temsy for taking such good care of us..! x

The video from my talk at my London Artist Workshop last September is now available for purchase here. You can hear me chat about things like getting thrown out of a celebrity wedding, fasting, doing psychedelics, and other stupid stuff. You can also hear about my ideas on keeping inspired, connecting to random universal chaos, experimenting with your work, attracting the right clients that fit your style, staying in charge of your shoots, how to NOT want to please everyone, and indirect influence vs direct influence… amongst other subjects.  To find out about my Artist Workshops, you’ll find everything you need to know on my WORKSHOPS page. Also check out this awesome behind-the-scenes video from London & Italy.

** NEW TESTIMONIALS that just came in about the video:

“oh my god noa. i just watched the 1st hour of your london workshop video & i swear to the infinite universe that it has inspired me in ways i had forgotten & in a place i thought was dying… kudos for rocking all over the fucking place, seriously.” –Dawn.

“feather love workshop video watched, re-watched and could watch again!!! Fantastic & has stopped me going mad!! I N S P I R E D” –Rebecca.

More testimonials HERE.

Lisa flew me out to Arizona a couple weeks ago to do a shoot with her for her upcoming album. A driver picked me up and took me to her stunning property where the most delightful meal was waiting for me. Lisa is quiet the gastronomical genius (homemade rose jam!? I’m obsessed). We immediately clicked and connected. I noticed how much of Larry Moss‘ workshop had rubbed off on me during this shoot… (I attended Larry Moss’ 4-day intensive actors Masterclass workshop in LA a few weeks ago with my actor buddies Kestrin & Sarah and was utterly moved and overwhelmed with inspiration. I strongly suggest every artist should try to audit his workshop! Intense!) Anyway, it certainly affected how I connected with and directed my client and my shoot. Lisa also asked me to snap some photos of her 2 beautiful kids… Thanks for taking such good care of me Lisa! xx

This session was shot on digital, 35mm film, Holga and Polaroid.

Below- Polaroid.

I love how this Polaroid of the kids came out.

    Jonas Seaman - Love Love Love the children! Well, love it all really… but those last four captures slay me.

    commercialphotohub - Love these images – gorgeous light
    Especially like the tripe exposure and Polaroid
    A real of show understanding – both digital and conventional photography.
    I’m look forward to reading and seeing more :o)

    twiggs - oh i want to be like you, with my style that is, but fearless like you… even though i try to make what i feel like doing, i kind of wanted to be more fearless and try different things! it’s such a conventional country though… but you’ll inspire me, i know you will! 🙂 have a great day noah! twiggs

How I feel about the word “Vintage” in regards to modern wedding photography… read it all (plus the bitchy comments) on East Side Bride. Yet another unintentionally “controversial” post – the last time I guest posted, it turned into another comment bicker-fest…. love it.

People have always told me that I talk with my hands a lot… I was just editing my London Workshop video and as I was scrubbing through it, I realized it’s true! I’m cuckoo with the hands!… freak… (video shot by Son Of Shark Pig, aka Pappin, & this clip was edited & processed by me).

    kat - rocknrollbride - HAHA! i do too though, noticed i was practically smacking people in the face in the photos from my blog workshop in november!

    a love supreme - ha! you are awesome…hands and all!

If you haven’t gotten a chance to check it out yet, I am extremely thrilled to share my new portfolio site,… it took forever but it’s finally up and running. I wanted to move forward from the flash design, the music, the giant logo etc and just have a good space to feature my work. My idea was to build sort of a tapestry of my images that work all together looking at them as one piece (you can zoom out on your browser to populate more images per row), and also be able to view them individually in a clean and simple environment. Designed by my dear client/friend, the brilliantly talented Jenny Ryf Doucedame (remember their wedding & their couple session?) and programmed by Nick Iverson– an absolute pleasure to work with! Also, during the entire design process, Jenny and I managed to converse entirely via email using strictly Summer Heights High lingo… SO professional… Jenny also happens to have a rad new t-shirt line out right now: TUCO. You may also notice my blog design has been slightly updated, as well as my infofaq’s pages.
