He is the west coast correspondent for L'oeil de la Photographie, a galleried photographer, has judged photo competitions, is an associate member of the American Society of Cinematographers, and a member of the motion picture academy (AMPAS). He brings a multi-faceted sensibility to his photography and his long-term projects create a kaleidoscopic view of the subjects he photographs.
He is currently working on a long term project about backroad highways and the small towns they connect, The Places In-between. That work spans writing, still photography and videos, and part of it was recently exhibited as an installation called The Long View at Photo L.A. Collect and Connect.
