This month brings much gratitude, particularly for the vibrant arts and journalism communities thriving in Los Angeles today. This summer, I was the recipient of the Outdoor Writer’s Association of California’s Writer of the Year award. And today, I am one of two finalists for the Los Angeles Press Club’s Photographer of the Year honor, with additional nominations for Portrait Photo and Photo Series. There's also a nod this year for my scouting work from the California On Locations Awards.

Los Angeles is blessed to have so many fine arts writers and publications. I'm thankful to Artillery Magazine for this full page Code Orange spread in the current print issue. The same photograph was recently featured in the LA Weekly.

Much appreciation to Genie Davis for her Art and Cake review of Between Two Seas / LA International. The beautiful show is extended through December 2 at Arena 1 Gallery in Santa Monica, California.

This Thanksgiving, I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend of printing pinhole images for birthday girl Shana Nys Dambrot’s upcoming Zen Psychosis novella from Griffith Moon. With so many of you on the road this holiday, the PHOTO OF THE MONTH is selected from my Flirting with Disaster portfolio. It was captured at 70 mph and available directly from Chungking Studio at 20% off the list price.

Discount applies to either 17x22" or 24x30" limited edition prints thru November 15. Thank you for your support and have a great holiday!
