Awesome assignment from an awesome photo editor! This was an honor to be a part of. The portfolio of images from all of the photographers came out great. The photos posted here are from my series. Have a look at all of the work from the other great photographers here: LA Mag . Aaaand, read Amy’s interview with A Photo Editor !
I spent a month working on a photo essay based on young wanderers for Esquire’s current issue on fatherhood. Tom Chiarella, the writer I traveled and worked with, wrote an amazing piece from a father’s perspective- something that I simply couldn’t contribute and am grateful for. This series of images extends beyond an assignment. Listening to the stories that were shared was a very humbling experience and I find myself personally attached to each and every one of these dudes. In fact, many of the guys I met along the way reminded me of a few friends who I haven’t seen in a while and wonder about a lot. It was such an honor to be a part of this. Thank you Michael Norseng, Alison Unterreiner, and everyone at Esquire for giving me a shot.

A few weeks ago I had the honor of photographing Chewy among many other legends catch some big air in this commercial for the Vans x Star Wars collaboration. Here’s a link to the photos from the shoot: Vans x Star Wars
It was so amazing to see this video come together. My best friends and I had been working on DB for almost 3 years, and Luis Arnold tied it all together perfectly. Thank you for making us all look halfway cool, Lu. DVDs now available at: www.diabolicalbastard.com
It was a crazy time, and I didn’t get shoot as much as I should have, but here’s what I came away with before/ during/ after the DB premier. Cheers DUUUDES!
