My good friends, Tumbleweed Wanderers, are playing San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music Festival next weekend! It’s crazy to think that I’ve seen them jam in Pat’s parents’ garage and now they’re playing one of the Bay Area’s biggest musical events. I have seen them work so hard from day one and I know that they’ve gone through so much to get where they are now. I am so proud of these passionate and talented guys. They are going to fucking rock the shit out of Golden Gate Park! Man, I can’t even believe I get to say that about my best friend’s band!
I highly encourage everyone to check them out next weekend if you’re at the festival. They will not disappoint!
Here are my favorite shots from a shoot we did earlier this year. You can see an older image I shot for them as well as add TW to your festival scheduler here.

Scenes From Occupy Oakland’s May Day Protest - 2012
Anyone who knows me can tell you that I’m an obsessive person: the things that I am into, I mean, they totally rule my life. One of my favorite things about this group of images is that I was able to capture my enthusiasm for the Occupy Movement using the Nishika 3D camera. Yes, the very camera that Vincent Price endursed via cheesy instructional video that came along with this 1980s gem. (If you want to watch part one of this classic, peep it here)
The exposures cascade into one another and give this dynamic crusade a flowing voice; a reminder to those of us who have forgotten of it’s clout, that we are all fighting for the same freedoms.

While being sick this past month has been a huge pain (literally), I’ve had some time to go through my archives in preparation for a few group shows I will be part of this summer & the book I’ve been planning on making (tentative title: Tom Booze VS. Dank Sinatra—- yes, really!). I have most of my images selected and layout ideas more or less in the bag, just need to execute and distribute! EXCITEMENT.
In finding the gems that will become the content in these big ventures of mine, I’ve found a lot of oldies that I hope will make their way into future projects (!!!!) and will be posting more as I edit. These recent discoveries have gotten me really amped on my goals and aspirations and have motivated me to be proactive in my career. It’s the little things, right?
I look forward to seeing how far my determination will take me and, with all this material I am digging up, do not be surprised if I fall off the grid a few times in between. With that in mind, I got to plan my trip to Seattle— enjoy these final days of Spring and say “hello!” to Summer 2014!!

Late night light painting with Patrick. Honestly, I couldn’t think of a more ridiculous way to end a Monday night. We “painted” for about an hour and we really got some good shit in the last 10 minutes. Hopefully this will lead to more successful experiments for the summer. In the mean time, enjoy these silly pics we made.
