I met spike jonze at the hot chocolate tour skate demo at 6th avenue in nashville, tennessee in 2003. My friend jim was in the background talking and spike turned around and I shot this. I was too nervous to walk up to spike and ask to take his portrait. Even though looking back now I know he wouldn’t have cared. I met marc johnson, kenny anderson and loads of others that night. good times. I will have to dig up those photos and scan them one day. This one is from the archives.

I will be posting the link with all of my film photographs on here when they are finally up. It will be archives from 2003-2009. Thanks again for following this blog.


I have too many blogs to manage all of them. It is time to consolidate.

So it is with my regret to inform you that I will no longer be posting photographs here. The from negatives tumblr will remain active because it has more activity.

I am creating a website for all of my photographs, film and digital so unfortunately this site no longer has a place.

I will post the link to the new site soon.
