A few frames of my friend Linnea. We went out and played at the beach for an evening. Taking these types of photos that have a more whimsical theme is different for me; I usually gravitate toward more adventure type photo shoots, but this was a fun exercise to play with poetry and more feminine beauty. Ever since I've taken an interest in video, I've become a lot more inspired by poetry. Gaining a sensitivity toward that is something I never expected to happen, but I'm so glad it did. My friend Sarah Vande Kamp has been in front of my camera a lot in the last year and this time I had her read aloud one of her poems. I love her voice and the way she writes. I look forward to using her work more. Click here if you want to check out more of her writing.

Today's the day that Woodchuck is having their opening party to showcase their new office space. I'm sad I can't be there for it, but last weekend when I was in Minneapolis for a few commissions, I stopped over to see their new space. I was stoked to see my photos from the Fall lookbook that I photographed hanging on the walls. I love seeing my photos printed in this way.
