"Be strong. Don't be a follower. Always do the right thing. If you have a choice between the right or wrong, do the right." Working with inspired talent like Jennifer is never dull, nor unentertaining.

@itstonybennett is not only the greatest singer of our present time but a giving loving soul. Happy Birthday Tony! Thank you for all you do and mostly for including me in your history...

This photo of @jerrygarcia was taken in a field at high noon outside of Indianapolis in 1993 while the Dead were on tour. I was given 59 minutes to shoot cover and inside. During this particular picture my Pentax lens broke and wouldn’t stop down past 2.8 so I was forced to shoot wide open. Magically this became a happy mistake and the shallow focus became a constant when shooting in this style. The lesson learned is “everything always works out,” even a happy accident. The great @ariannephillips made the black robe and gave it a “holier than thou” quality. The darkroom work was the other 50%. XM

For the recent #sonyalpha launch, I put together a simple environment with continuous light to showcase the ability of their new a7R IV camera system.

From the series of portraits taken in my stairwell, I photographed artists from all walks of life. Iman is not only one of the most iconic models, but also one of the most philanthropic and generous people I have met. #inmystairwell

I am always inspired when working with artists such as @jlo + @giuseppezanotti. When you throw confidence and attitude into the mix, the chances of capturing something great are pretty high.

“There’s no life without humor. It can make wonderful moments of life truly glorious, and it can make tragic moments bearable.”

#WillemDafoe is a man who enjoys the process, and who takes interest in making a moment. That’s the sweet spot. Sometimes the simplest photographs become my favorite.

“Some songs are just like tattoos for your brain...you hear them and they’re affixed to you.” Feeling pretty chill out in that field of mustard flowers.

For this shoot with Gisele I wanted to do something that had a real pop to it. I can’t remember if I was watching a music video or a commercial, but I saw a quilted piece of furniture, and thought what a great backdrop that would make. Sent a reference to Walter Barnett and he came back with the perfect walls. Sitting in the make-up chair, holding her dog, I presented the idea to Gisele and she simply said, “Oh don’t worry. I work very fast.” What makes her a true artist is that you give her a little direction and she runs with it. Just about every frame was right on. Inspiration comes from unexpected places, you just have to be on the lookout for whatever strikes your fancy.

When looking for inspiration, I know I can always count on travel and getting back to my roots down in Texas. #BTS from @theimpression_ shoot with @erinwalshnyc and @faiithlynch

I bought the ticket, and took the ride with #huntersthompson.

Honored to be a part of @mcnayart exhibition Transmerica/n: Gender, Identify, Appearance Today in my home state of Texas. On view until September 20th.

Thank you to René Paul Barilleaux for including me.

A very happy birthday to @courtneylove . This was our first shoot that started an incredible journey of both photography and film. After this publicity shoot, Courtney asked me to write on Hole’s video “Violet” in which I co-directed with Fred Woodward and the great Harris Savides. This particular portrait was shot in 1994 on a 4x5 with transparency film. #hole #courtneylove

Quick portrait with a new friend/renowned chef @pierre_sang with my old 6 shooter #rolleiflex. The power of using this machine is editing in your head, not on your screen. I met Pierre in @lennykravitz’s kitchen in Paris and recently enjoyed a special meal together at his restaurant in Oberkampf. He’s amazingly talented with a gracious kindered spirit. We share a common love for the visual world and of course a delicious meal. #analogphotography

What initially drew me to @brockcollection was their unique approach to design and tailoring. Not only do we have a shared love for style, but also Merle Haggard and tacos. Can’t wait for the next collaboration @lauravassar @kristopher.brock….

I had spent most of my weekend looking for a cityscape near the bridges to photograph @kendricklamar. After a sold-out show at Barclays Center the night before, followed by an all-night session in the recording studio, Kendrick arrived on set promptly at 9am. I remember how relaxed and focused he was, a true testament to the dedication he gives to his craft. A gentleman of few words, yet honest and precise. After the session we went over each frame together and talked about which were his favorites. A perfect subject! Here are a few images + BTS from that session.
