I was recently interviewed about my Prison Fight photographs by JOIA Magazine, a fine art publication out of Chile in South America. I love the layouts and the minimalist designs. It’s always nice to see editors and art directors doing great things with photography. Makes me super happy. So thanks to Alvaro and his team. Keep up the amazing work; I’m honored to be part of the current issue.

I just wanted to post a few outtakes from my recent TIME magazine assignment in Quang Tri, central Vietnam. It was only a two-page spread with two images used, but I spent a full two days shooting, and I got to see some pretty amazing things while on the job, including a bomb removal from a local village, a few stops at the homes of families who were being helped by Chuck’s programs, and a pretty awesome white phosphorous fireworks display in the middle of an empty stretch of sand near the coast. Here’s the story again, for those who missed it the first time around: War to Peace.

I love working on travel stories in Ho Chi Minh City, but I don’t get to do it nearly enough. So I was very excited when United Airlines contacted me about a piece they were doing on the southern metropolis a few months back–a pretty free-form, first-person narrative from a great writer/novelist in the US centered around the eventual adoption of his friend after being left on the banks of the Saigon river at the end of the Vietnam-American War. I got to spend three days just roaming the city and taking things in while taking my photographs. Kind of the perfect job. Here are the tearsheets from the piece, which I think look great, as well as some outtakes from the journey. You can read the story HERE. Or, if you have some time, check out my other published work on my site HERE.

Last month I traveled to Mai Chau, in the northern mountains of Vietnam, to shoot Sula Clothing’s new AW2014 collection. I’ve worked with the boutique design house for over two years now, and each shoot is a chance to experiment more and take more chances. Sula remains one of my favorite clients, and I really can’t say enough good things about them. I love their clothes, and Alison, the owner and designer, has always granted me an almost limitless freedom to do what I will on each photoshoot. The images here stood out for me for whatever reasons. For those interested, you can check out the website–and buy Sula’s beautiful boutique designer rags–HERE.

A few months back, I worked on another cover shoot for Cebu Pacific Air, out of the Philippines. The concept was to follow a model through Hanoi for a day and capture her amidst the color and vibrancy of the capital. A simple idea with a lot of room to be creative. My favorite kind of assignment. Here are a few of the final images used in the story. That specific shade of golden yellow in the top photo will forever remind me of northern Vietnam.
