Blue Army Man

Here's the latest image from the Army Man project I've been working on. Sorry I didn't clean all the dust off the negative before scanning.
It was shot on Fuji 160S color film using a Mamiya 645 with a 45mm lens and an auto extender ring for the macro effect.

Night Photography from spring '08

This past spring I shot night photographs exclusively. They are my preference for b&w photography because b&w is closer to the way that we see things in low light, monochromatically that is. Anyway, the first two are from the U.S. Steel Lorain Pipe Mills, a steel works located in Lorain, OH, and the last three three are from around the Oberlin College campus.

Mettle in the Storm

My first finished video ever. Check it out, this is classic material. Dates back to the fall of '05.

More Designs From the Archives

Big Lebowski Stencil

Intended to be a stencil of Jeff Bridges from The Big Lebowski. Never got around to stenciling it, but I like the design. Maybe I'll get on that, my walls are looking pretty bare.

Planetary Wallpapers From the Archives

Some designs intended as desktop wallpapers. They are 1024x768. I was making a lot of planet designs around the time that these were made. Not my best work, but I just rediscovered them on my hard drive so I thought I'd throw them up.

(you can find a 1280x1024 version of the above image here)

The Warehouse - Alex Christie mix

The footage featured in this film is from the summer of '06. It was filmed in a granite/marble warehouse in the Boston area (courtesy of Louis W. Mian Inc.). This version features an original score by Alex Christie. Equipment for the shoot was provided by the New York Film Academy.

The Face of Gregg Allen

This is a kinda wierd one. It is based on Gregg Allen's face, for those of you who know him. It's really not a complete piece, but it's been so long since I've worked on it that I figured I should put it up anyway.

Stop-Motion Films

These are two films I made by patching together almost 7,000 still images (apx. 3,500 for each). The process was similar to stop-motion animation, but using live actors. Both were shot and edited in the same week, sometime in March of 2007.

Hat Tricks


I.D. Logo Design

I designed this logo for a student run political magazine called International Dialogue (ID). The magazine is currently in its second year of circulation at Oberlin College.

Here's an early version of the design, intended to be used as an element in the layout

Smoke Wallpaper Designs

These are two abstract designs I made as wallpaper for my desktop. They are 1024x768 jpegs, feel free to download them.

Beer Labels

Here are two of the beer labels I've made for my homebrews. I've got a 5-gallon batch of chocolate porter waiting to be bottled right now, so it'll soon be time for another design.

For a good selection of recipe kits and homebrew supplies, head over to

Shoot the Sun

This is an album cover I made in the summer of '07 for a band called Shoot the Sun. Their career was cut short by infighting, but the album cover lives on.

Here's a link to one of the songs off their first and only demo album. The track is called Menthol and can be found here for streaming or download. Shoot the Sun was a collaboration between Jared Pryor and Nate Ellis, with Derek Rio providing occasional backup on drums.
