Isolated from the outside world, a surreal quiet has taken over Los Angeles and my neighborhood of Franklin Hills. While the news is often ominous and trips to the drug store show the reality of life today, home is a quiet respite from it all. With my wife, Jenni and our 1 year-old daughter, Jovie, I am profoundly thankful for our health, and for the health of our friends and family. These days, I wake up well before sunrise with too many projects on my mind. There’s finally time to think about personal photo projects, to catch up on landscaping, and to clean and organize years of clutter.
As a freelance photographer, I am fortunate to be able to spend many of my days at home with my wife and daughter. But when I travel, it’s often for weeks at a time. While it’s challenging not being able to take work, spending more time at home has been so rewarding. I thought by being home every day, I would no longer see Jovie advance by leaps and bounds, but the changes I see in a single day continue to surprise me.
A little about my situation here - We live in a late 60’s post and beam home. It was built by the architect, Dick Lowry, as a family home and he lived here his entire life. We are the second owners of the house and my office/studio is above the garage. We’re situated on ½ acre of land with lots of hills and trails around. I have an extensive assortment of cameras, strobes and continuous lights and a fully loaded EQ van.
I would be so excited to collaborate and share our experiences in this crazy time.
