I had the pleasure of photographing a talented, young singer/songwriter in Atlanta recently. He goes by Thom Cash. He sent me a beautiful song, and it inspired the photo shoot. I will be keeping my eyes and ears on his career.




This photograph has remained one of my favorites for years. It’s a shot of a wonderful vocalist, TIna Gibson (Sakai). I met Tina through producer, Narada Michael Walden. The image was shot just outside my studio on the sidewalk in Sausalito, CA. It’s sexy, positive, and I love it. Thank you, Tina.
