Sketch Book


In 2016, metal fabricator Cory Fass stripped his chopper motorcycle down to the naked frame. When he welded, I observed. I asked questions while he was grinding steel and polishing aluminum. I learned about motorcycles, design, craftsmanship, and a lot about Cory Fass. 

To Say Something is sixteen lessons, sixteen things I learned or confirmed about saying something through visual elements during the hours spent witnessing a custom chopper come to life in a Kansas City double door garage. This class is to help photographers, visual communicators, draw closer to their unique expression, to point to something, to say something. 

Great Light

Sun light travels eight light minutes, 92,958,412 miles, across space to come to earth. It does not have to reflect off the Eiffel Tower to be beautiful, captivating, intriguing.

Light and water make interesting mixtures.

Privacy screening on a chain link fence knocked the stuffing out of hard light and gave it a grated pattern.
