BJ Penn

BJ_Penn-6425A couple weeks ago I flew to Hilo, Hawaii to shoot a mini-documentary character piece on the MMA UFC Legend BJ “The Prodigy” Penn for RVCA. I really cant express enough how humble, genuine, talented and an overall great guy BJ is. It is often rare to be such a successful public figure and maintain grounded, true to family and friendly values, not be over zealous with money and material things and overall to be respectful to any and everyone you come across. To me, MMA and the UFC in particular have a pretty negative connotation, filled with jock mentality, steroids, bad graphics, and tough ego guys. The practice and discipline of training however, is something I appreciate, and BJ breaks all those stereotypes and more in my book. This was shot a week before his latest fight. BJ has been fighting in MMA and UFC for over 10 years. Thanks BJ for the hospitality in Hilo.

I have been working on a series of different pieces that utilize the camera as strictly a tool to achieve something instead of my norm of using it to capture moments to tell stories, or create nostalgic emotions etc… One of these series are these gradients. Here are a couple more I made recently.  (more…)

All aboard, once again, on the annual pilgrimage to Sumatra, Indonesia. This time, the vessel is The Ilike with her hearty crew and the legendary Captain Scuzz from Sumatran Surfariis.

Some more of this idea of framing a singular object to give it a feel of space, almost using it as a center of attention for meditation or calm.
