Looking back on my career

I've been looking back on my career using my Instagram feed. I found this shot and remembered the gratification I got when I created it.


It was challenging because this is the entire hotel room. I could only get one light into the space. I look at it now and recognize that it is a great photograph compositionally, aesthetically, and technically.


After 30 years of photographing interiors, I am inspired by photographing executive headshots in my Palo Alto studio. Interior photography was my first love, but after so long it is time to move on.
