Yearly Archives: 2013

When I called Brandon, the first question I asked him was, “When you imagined your picture on the walls of your company, what did you see?”  One of the coolest things I get to do as a photographer is shoot portraits of the highest performers at a San Francisco company founded by a couple of classmates.  These portraits are meant to capture both the city of San Francisco and the personality of the award-winning subjects.  Beyond that…the canvas is blank, and we are free to explore.  Brandon saw himself on the field at Candlestick in its final year.  So at 8am on a recent Tuesday morning…we made it happen!  He was shocked.  And so was I.




Two weeks ago, I had the chance to travel to a friend’s wedding…in the Bahamas! On a cruise!  I’d never set foot in the Caribbean, nor had I ever been on a cruise.  (PSA: Turns out, a cruise is a great way to get quality time with co-travelers, because phones don’t work, TV is just ‘meh’, and internet access is WAY too expensive).  I loved spending the weekend with old(er) friends and meeting some hilarious new people on the groom’s side.  As an added comedic bonus, it was a Stanford-Berkeley wedding, complete with built-in trash talking (looking forward to Big Game, Bear nation).

Congratulations A & J, and thanks so much for having me.

















This year marks the 15th time I’ve attended the US Open.  It is, by far, my favorite sporting event.  I couldn’t love it more. There were lots of characters, old and new, that made this year’s Labor Day weekend as thrilling as ever. Here are some of the matches I took in and images I managed to bring home.


Federer was pushed to Armstrong by the rain…



…and, before a stunned capacity crowd, he was pushed right out of the tournament in 3 sets by Tommy Robredo.


Speaking of Tommy, the ageless Tommy Haas is still going strong.


Sabine Lisicki made quick work of her 3rd round opponent.




Serena vs Sloane started off with some fireworks, but didn’t quite live up to the hype.



The crowd is always a part of the picture at Flushing.


Donald Young was run off the court pretty easily this year….


…but he DID team up with 17-year-old giantkiller Victoria Duval (who defeated #3 Sam Stosur in the first round of womens’ singles) for mixed doubles.



Janko Tipsarevic and David Ferrer are always exciting to watch on the Grandstand.  This match took place at the same time as Federer was taking his beating, so I bounced back and forth to get these shots.  I’ll definitely shoot this perspective more often in years to come.  Love it.



Raquel Kops-Jones was sort of our mascot for this year.  We saw her play doubles and mixed doubles almost every day.  We saw her women’s team lose to the Williams sisters and her mixed team defeat Young and Duval.  Basically, we kinda stalked her when we saw her on the draw sheet.


Johnny Mac!!!  Rushing from the Nadal match on Ashe to call the Federer carnage on Armstrong.
