This past Sunday I got the incredible chance to meet and photograph one of my favorite musicians, Valerie June. As I´ve experienced before, shooting while surrounded by peers and fellow creatives can stimulate an artist in the most exciting of ways, and it seems that the creativity then finds you, not the contrary. 


Valerie showed up for a surprise appearance at the Newport Folk Fest, during a NewportFILM conversation which I was shooting. They presented the superb, Grammy-nominated documentary Two Trains Runnin. Author/producer Ben Hedin and movie composer Christopher North discussed the film and, along with Valerie, treated us to a better understanding of the many sounds of Blues music.

Merci la vie


Rings in the New Year!

Christon and Peter decided to opt for an intimate New Year´s Eve wedding at the Clarke Cooke House in Newport, Rhode Island. I was exited to be their photographer for the occasion and to shoot at the venue. The charmingly askew decor (an interesting mix of Boheme, glamour and vintage) as well as a wonderfully cosy candle light atmosphere made it feel like we were in a 1920´s Parisian private club - add the Newport yachting paraphernalia and the creaking wood floors to the mix and you get something truly unique

All my congratulations to the happy couple and a very Happy New Year to all!



Malerie and I got chatting online a while back, planning a shoot that we are exited about producing in the Spring. Meanwhile we got together to work on some creative portraiture for her to use when promoting her music performances (she is a wonderfully talented singer, songwriter and guitarist). It is beyond satisfying for me to collaborate with fellow artists and creatives. Her aura is extremely powerful and calming, all at the same time. Not to mention her sense of style and humble confidence in front of the camera. A real treat for me! Through her I was able to express my creativity fully and ended up with one of my favourite shoots to date.

Thank you Malerie and here´s to many more collaborations in the future!

Head this way to see the full shoot :)  



Back in time for Newport LIFE Magazine

Today I am thrilled to share something different and that I´ve been so very exited about. It was pretty hard not to do so earlier! 

A big thank you to Annie Sherman, managing editor of Newport Life Magazine who contacted me to photograph this story for senior editor, Tracie Seed, who was working on writing about colonial dresses. As she puts it, it is "A behind-the-scenes peek under the skirts of 18th-century fashion." Thanks to the beautiful wardrobe collection and knowledge of Renee Walker-Tuttle and of Elizabeth Sulock, and to the Newport Restoration Foundation for making this photo-shoot at the Whitehorne House of Newport, RI so very immersing and believable. 

Here is a peek at the magazine feature (read the story in the September/October 2017 issue), followed by a personal selection.
