I was recently contacted by a friend, the extremely talented Heron Rana about doing the photography for her next album cover--and along with it, portraits of all the women who would star in it, several of whom had either collaborated on the album or were musicians or artists themselves.
Naturally, I was stoked. Ain't no portrait like an artist portrait.
We took a TON of gorgeous shots and had a fabulous time, with the hyperindustrial, maze-like UCD DeathStar as our wild and funky backdrop. Over this next week, I'll be posting photos from the shoot.
First up: The stunning Eliza Deed! Strong, powerful and beautiful, Eliza is a vocalist who also does music management, artist development, and more. She absolutely rocked her shoot, and showed showed off a fierce independent spirit emblematic of her music. Be sure to drop by her Insta and give her a follow!

Yolo Sunflowers at Sunset
A field of Yolo County sunflowers at sunset. Gnats, flies, and other agricultural insects glitter in the evening sunlight. California produces 50-70,000+ acres of sunflowers annually--the majority of which are produced in Yolo County. June 2021, Davis CA.
I was privileged to get the chance to meet up with an out-of-state internet friend (in person!) and go for a hike together in the Berkeley Hills. It was a lovely time and a rare opportunity, and we were lucky enough to have a stunning day to spend together on top of it all: cool weather, clear skies, and great views.
