Last month, for Canoe & Kayak magazine, I was very fortunate to meet and photograph the legendary canoe builder Ralph Frese, who sadly died on December 10th. When I dropped by his store and workshop on November 20th, he was a little tired, but full of life, and quite the wisecracker. I had a great time shooting his portrait and listening to him talk about his life and work. He’ll surely be missed by many.

Bassist Wilbert de Joode, shot last month in Amsterdam for my improvisers series.
Here’s another photograph from my recent Amsterdram trip, for my improvisational musician series: cellist Harald Austbø.
This is Argentinian saxophonist Natalio Sued, who currently resides in Amsterdam.
I shot this portrait of composer and musician Ab Baars just around the corner from his home in Amsterdam, as part of my series on improvisational musicians. For my trip I decided to keep things very simple regarding gear; I brought one camera and one lens, and no other equipment. Most of the pictures in this series are shot only with available light, including this one. It’s a fun challenge to try to find captivating light outside at night–there’s something magical to me in the serendipity.
