“Speed of light” or “The results (of last nights shenanigans)”. But as I stood shivering in the dark, waiting for a car, please any single fucking car, it got me thinking about time. And how it speeds up as you grow older. Because you have less and less to burn. I think about this a lot. And in the twilight of one year let’s not fall asleep and let the next year speed by in the dark. Let’s stay awake and grab on and ride it for all its worth. Let’s squeeze everything possible from this one. And from ourselves.

You’ve got this voice. This small quiet voice inside you. It gets louder the more you listen too it. It goes away if you don’t. But it never goes all the way away. Some people call this voice God, some call it instinct. Some call it madness. This voice is called all kinds of things. Its the true voice. Listen to this voice.

Keep your fire burning. Keep it safe inside you. Protect it. Feed it. Nurture it. So that it can do the same for you. Keep you warm. Alive. Inspired.
I respect hard work and talent. In that order. Your talent is worthless without the hard work and dedication required to forge it into actual skill. This is a photo of my friend Amir. I’ve seen very few people work as hard. Fewer still with as much talent. I met him in Israel, his native country. I’ve taken him to Alaska (more than once) and other less exotic locations. Most of the work I do is hard. You don’t sleep much. Sometimes you bleed (I almost always bleed). Amir never complains. Always quick with a smile or a joke or a helping hand.
People like Amir keep my fire going.

I met Sharon on the Instagram thingy where I think she’s kinda famous. I dig her work and she’s been a vocal fan of mine so I jumped at the chance to photograph her. She did add a disclaimer slash warning before we started shooting, something about not liking her picture taken, but she liked my portraits so she was tolerating it. It made me smile. I think she’s got a great face. And I love her real and clean work.
I think I’m getting over that fear of photographing photographers…

A number of years ago I was hired to shoot a short film in Israel. It was quite the experience. Sophie was the only american actress involved and we’ve been friends ever since. She’s one of the good ones…

Malachi asked me to take his portrait. I was flattered and terrified as he’s a terrific photographer in his own right. In addition to having one of the all time coolest names he’s a warm, sincere and very real guy. These are the kinds of people I like to spend my time with.
Take a look at Malachi’s excellent work. www.malachibanales.com
