  1. Worthy

    21 Jan 2018

    “Film Worthy” Hollywood 2017 I’ve had to make a few changes in my life for 2018.   We’ve always had a comfortable lifestyle, the Noellert family.  We’re not wealthy or even rich or affluent, but we’re not middle class.  Ester says were “bougie” from time to time which makes my…


  2. Hairy Scary

    12 Jan 2018

    “Hairy Scary” Santa Monica 2017 The idea for this image came in a flash.  Ella and I were sitting in the living room.  I was reading the Sunday New York Times and Ella was behind me, on the other side of the room brushing her hair with what could only…


  3. Low

    09 Jan 2018

    “Low” Venice Beach 2017 One of the best parts about living where I live is that I’m only a stones throw from the Venice Beach boardwalk.  Venice is seething with images just begging to be made and time after time when I head down there, close to sunset with a…


  4. Behind

    04 Jan 2018

    “Behind” Carson, 2017 Over the break I’ve taken some time to edit.  I’ve tried to be brutally honest with myself and the result has left me feeling a little conflicted.  Of my last 250-300 or so pictures I had pulled perhaps 20-30 selects.  That puts my hit rate in the…


  5. The Reader

    29 Dec 2017

    “The Reader” Manhattan Beach 2017 The facet of film photography that hooked me was the aspect of full commitment.  By full commitment I’m referring to all aspects of photography that a digital shooter will waste time checking or changing or adjusting rather than shooting and trusting their instincts.  When I load a roll, I’m committing to black and…


  6. Hail to the Chief

    22 Dec 2017

    “Hail to the Chief” Venice 2017 I’ve been sick and upset and not in the mood to post here or on Insta.  I haven’t even really been in the mood to be a citizen of the United States or even a human of earth lately.  I have a sinus infection and inflamed lungs due…


  7. A is for accident

    07 Dec 2017

    “A is for accident” On the days leading up to that trip to Ikea a couple weeks back, I had an aching feeling.  Anyone who has shot long enough with the same camera–especially film cameras with a bevy of mechanical bits–can tell you with some degree of accuracy when something isn’t…


  8. There

    28 Nov 2017

    “There” Time for something different.  I need to stop raging about the world for a few minutes and have a little bit of light-hearted, old fashioned enjoyment, if even only for a minute or two.  I may or may not have mentioned that I’m trying to shoot a little more…


  9. 10 minutes

    25 Nov 2017

    “10 minutes 1” “10 minutes 2” “10 minutes 3” “10 minutes 4” I rarely shoot just architecture anymore.  Somewhere along my photographic journey I was pulled towards images narrating a  human experience to art or architecture or the surrounding environment.  Architecture began serving a compositional role that is one component of the human experience as opposed to…


  10. Fuck you man

    23 Nov 2017

    “Fuck you man” The story behind this image starts as a familiar one.  I’m out shooting downtown and something catches my eye. I quickly frame up and hit the shutter.  A few weeks later I look at the negatives and it either worked out or it didn’t.  Sometimes when I get the images…


  11. At the end of the day

    20 Nov 2017

    “At the end of the day 1” ‘At the end of the day 2” “At the end of the day 3” Nothing today will be related to photography really.  You’ve been warned.   I haven’t processed any film this month so far.  In fact I haven’t shot very much this month…


  12. Hello, Hej

    17 Nov 2017

    “Hello, hej” “Mirror mirror… mirror…” “Twin size bed” If you’ve spent most of your adult life in Sweden and then moved abroad, it’s a moral imperative to locate your closest Ikea the second you come up for air.  It’s a law actually… in the Swedish constitution.  Given that subconscious mandate we find ourselves, from time…


  13. Shadows and legs

    14 Nov 2017

    “Shadows and legs” I made this image on a Sunday a while back.  AM and I had just picked up the girls in Century City and were headed to the Farmer’s Market in Beverly Hills for some fresh produce and then to the library so Ester could take-out a few books.  The…


  14. 50

    08 Nov 2017

    “Home” I shot at 50mm for two years.  It was the only M mount lens I owned so it was the only lens that mattered.  During those two years I learned to shuffle my feet, to duck and tippy-toe and bow and every other strange contortion you can make to put…


  15. Eloper

    07 Nov 2017

    “Eloper” elope [ih-lohp] verb (used without object), eloped, eloping. 1.to run off secretly to be married, usually without the consent or knowledge of one’s parents.  2.to run away with a lover.  3.to leave without permission or notification; escape: At age 21, the apprentice eloped from his master. 4.(of a person with a mental…


  16. (This is) Magnolia and her jacket

    05 Nov 2017

    “(This is) Magnolia and her jacket” The kids and I were walking back from the Hammer when I saw this lovely young lady sitting on a stoop waiting for a Taxi.  She was looking at something on her phone and smiling with this big beautiful smile.  Then I noticed her…


  17. At the end of the day

    03 Nov 2017

    “Trifecta” “Smoke shop” “Ladder” “Curious boys” “Bike your walk” I love the sunsets here in Santa Monica and I don’t get out as often as I wish to shoot in that glorious light.  During the summer it’s a bit easier since sunset comes just late enough that I can make it out…


  18. Head shrinking

    24 Oct 2017

    “Head shrinking” I’ve been trying to see things differently.  I’m trying to really look at what’s happening around me and to not see what I’m expecting to see.  I feel like I’m missing things, important things that are worthy of finding and exploring are happening and it’s not for want of…


  19. What it’s all about

    22 Oct 2017

    “What it’s all about” You put your left foot inYou take your left foot outYou put your left foot inAnd you shake it all aboutYou do the hokey pokeyAnd you turn yourself aroundThat’s what it’s all about I really have no idea what this guy was doing.  I’m guessing he…


  20. This is my girl

    21 Oct 2017

    “This is my girl” No need for a long diatribe tonight.  This is my girl, Anna Maria.  I made this picture a couple weeks ago when we went to the beach right around sunset.  She was running around like she’s want to do, taking pictures of all things beach.  For just…


  21. One by one

    20 Oct 2017

    “One by one” The story behind this image is more anecdotal than anything but at the same time a testament to how sheep-like we humans can be at times–or at least how sheep like I can be at times.   I had just walked out of the LA/LA exhibit at LACMA in a pretty good mood.  The…


  22. Crash

    19 Oct 2017

    “Crash” I made this image one Sunday at the Beverly Hills Farmer’s Market.  We had stopped at the library to get a couple books for Ester and then walked over, thinking to score some seasonal produce–in particular peaches and nectarines which are just crazy good this time of year.  The best part…


  23. What the fuck?!?

    16 Oct 2017

    “What the fuck?!?” I was walking the Huntington Beach Pier with AM and the kids when I made this image.  The surfer in the picture was doing a run when all of a sudden it was almost like he was yanked back by some invisible force.  He started screaming at the pier and shaking…


  24. The boy in the bubble and other nearest misses

    15 Oct 2017

    “The boy in the bubble” “Man behind the camera” “Rockabillies and Cokes” “Focus” “End of the rail” “From above” After yesterdays seriousness, I wanted to go the opposite way today.  When I first started shooting those first 10,000 pictures that were supposed to be my worst and which preceded the next 10,000 which were…


  25. Estranged

    14 Oct 2017

    “Estranged” I don’t know how long they had been drifting apart.  It could have started last week or last year or last time they really talked.  But it had happened at some point and all that really matters is that it would have happened no matter what they did.  I…
