Zoe Fest 2013 Short from Australia

Back in October 2013 I held my annual artist retreat in Coffs Harbor/Sapphire Beach Australia. Here is a little movie short I made while there.

We are currently gearing up for the 2016 fest to be held in Hawaii June5-15. You can read about it here; http://www.zoefest.photo You’ve got two weeks to get on board if you want to go and make art with us.

The lonely piano

You never know what you will run into hiking in the woods. About 2 weeks later we had a little earthquake and it collapsed this piano into dust. Vassanta and I passed it together at just the right time. Perfect kind of magic.

 

Some amazing bends!

I’m still shooting often. Just decided to take a break from the computer one day and it turned into a year. How did that happen? I have a backlog of work to catch up on… and probably a lot of models wondering where I disappeared to. I haven’t forgotten!

Here are a couple images I made with Jasmina, an incredibly bendy yoga instructor + awesome model.

And of course no photo making is ever complete unless Ollie gets in the frame.

Interview with Boston Globe

““I don’t have to use it, but it’s my favorite,” said Wiseman, who has little use for digital photography because “it never gives me that punch my work usually had.””

New55 film made it’s Kickstarter Goal!! And Bob Crowley rocks! Check out the piece in the Boston Globe. And check out the New55Project website. 🙂

Happy Holidays!

Thank you to everyone who made an impact on my photography this year! I love you all! I hope you are all nestled by the chimney with care surrounded by those you love.

Every Christmas I make a donation to the Weingart Center for the Homeless. I hope you’ll join me in helping the homeless of skid row move on to a better life. Having nearly 51,000 homeless people on any given night, Los Angeles is the “Homeless Capital of the Country”. We all need to take a stand against this staggering fact. They provide a way up by helping them find jobs and other programs. It’s not just a bed for a night or food for an afternoon. They actually do something and without prejudice. Help the homeless this season please!

Enjoy a photo I made recently in Australia with Kat Love.

Bamboo Forest

Here’s some new work with Claudine in my secret bamboo forest.

Shot with Ilford 50 and Kodak TriX with a Nikon FM and a Diana.

We planned for the beach but there was a dead dolphin there… so we moved to my secret forest. Enjoy a little test shot from my iPhone. Film later…

ChemTrails Conspiracy

Catchy titles for blog posts keep me entertained. You must entertain yourself at all costs or life gets zombied.

Claudine visited California recently and we caught some images and some chem trails. All images shot with a RolleiFlex on Ilford PANF Plus 50 120.

We also visited my secret bamboo forest. I’ll post some of those soon. Enjoy!
