Fisheyed abstract machine-porn, deep inside the derelict B-58’s broken wing-pod, in the hole where the GE J79 jet engine used to live. Night, 95-second exposure. Full moon, with red and purple-set Protomachines flashlight.
The mach-2 capable Hustler’s super-sleek underbelly. No doubt Snoopy’s the rattiest B-58 in the world, but of the 8 left, he’s the one in the most picturesque location. Purple and red set Protomachines flashlight. 100 second exposure, under full moon.
I’ve had one eyeball on three derelict Cold War aircraft (this B-58 and 2 B-52s) on the fringes of Edwards AFB for about 10 years. Last year one of my past students, Noel Kerns, slipped in under the radar there to night shoot them. Since then a number of other night shooters (Stephen Freskos, Amy Heiden, Calvin Caneda, […]
I’ll cut right to the chase. Normally my workshops are full and hard to get into, but, due to someone’s inability to commit, there’s one open spot in next month’s 3-nighter at the Valley Junkyard. All the info is listed here. And I’m very easy to reach if you have any questions. Life is short, come on the insane adventure […]

A mile down a dirt road outside Mojave Califorina, we stumbled upon a cluster of derelict double- and triple-wide trailers. They once held deluxe offices, full bathrooms (with showers) and kitchens, now they’re garbage, weathered and sandblasted, punished by the high desert. It made for a surreal juxtaposition, these big vistas, combined with these blank, mundane rooms. A fun night […]
Wavy keys inside the abandoned farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. It smelled real bad in here, like decaying flesh. There must have been some dead critter rotting under the pile of moldy clothes and household items that covered most of the floor. Easily one of the filthiest, nastiest interiors I’ve ever worked. And brutally hot […]
