Rio de Janeiro gets me rolling. Fires me up. Life becomes pictures. Pictures become life. That’s the zone. The only place I want to live. #rio #beachgames#burnmagazine #copacabana #leica #monochrom

Rio de Janeiro. It’s a wrap. My photo workshop students and workshop team share a glass of champagne the morning after our grand finale slideshow at Ateli da Imagem last night. I cannot remember a more closely bonded class. We were shooting side by side all week. I was shooting my BeachGames zine and students were working on their individual essays. We met every morning in our beachfront classroom for critique, essay sequencing and out shooting the rest of the time. We pulled a few all nighters. Daily best pictures went up on the wall as prints. Simply, a remarkable set of essays came out of this process. Many in this group are sticking around to shoot Carnaval, me included. The workshop is officially over. Yet I know the buzz from this one will last forever. Love you all.. Hugs. #rio#photoworkshops #burnmagazine #beachgames

Rio. Marcela, a key character in my book (based on a true story), celebrates Yemenja( goddess of the sea) by throwing a rose to drift out forever. I ran into Marcela by chance today on a “cold rainy day”, 75 F, and nobody else on the beach and the light was magic for b&w. #rio #copacabana #Yemenja #leica #monochrom#beachgames

A bullet hole scar on his back a young man swims for the waves. My BeachGames essay unfolds now in Rio. I am putting pictures up on the wall. I love more than anything shooting and laying out a book in real time. (based on a true story) was done that way. We are having a beer and pics going up. Most fun you can have in photography. Fun works
