Selfridge Air Show 2009

The Selfridge Air Show was this weekend and I went Saturday. I left my house at 12pm, got to the North River Road exit around 12:30pm, and then finally got IN the air base around 2:30pm!!!! It was a nightmare!!!!! Luckily, I was able to see some of the other planes, like the B-2 Stealth Bomber, as they flew over the freeway. By the time I got there all I could see were the planes on display, some paratroopers jumping out of helicopters, and the main act, the Thunderbirds. I love air shows. Check out the photos here.

I have been accidentally caught in the Dream Cruise several times over the years while actually trying to get somewhere and being totally unaware of which weekend in August it was. This marks the first time I actually went there — on purpose.

I was only there for about an hour and a half and have posted the highlights of my photography @ flickr. It was a real exhibition of sorts, and I can honestly say that this was the first time people have gravitated to my giant lenses instead of recoiling in horror, haha. For some reason there seems to be a disturbing trend of people riding mini-bikes or dangling puppets from their windows whilst cruising...wtf. One guy was on a mini-bike AND on a cell phone, calling someone and telling them, "Guess what? You'll never believe it, I'm IN the Dream Cruise." Not sure if he mentioned that he was on a miki-bike...

Anyway, it turned out to be pretty fun, especially seeing everyone have such a good time. To check out the photos, go here.

JW Murphy Guitars Site Finished

Sunday, August 9, 2009


After an initial one-page starter site, the newly completed JW Murphy Guitars site is now published! I did both the photography and web design for James Murphy, who builds custom archtop guitars from his shop in Fenton, Michigan. Originally a master architectural woodworker, he is now exploring his skills as a luthier. He currently has three different models available and several different "shopworn prototypes" for sale as well. See it all at jwmurphyguitars.com.

Habitat Machines by Trautrimas

Friday, August 7, 2009


Anyone that knows my personal work, knows that I've long worked with collage, photomontage, etc. I stumbled across the work of 30 year old Canadian, David Trautrimas, a while ago and instantly loved it. It's part steampunk, part Jetsons, and has a post-apocolyptic feel with the barren landscapes and muted palette. Trautrimas photographs various appliances in disassembled form and then assembles them digitally, with beautiful craftsmanship. The photo above is titled "The Sprinkler House." To view more of the series, check out his website at trautrimas.ca.
