  1. Timothy

    01 Feb 2018

    “Timothy” K-Town 2017 There are few people that I call good friends.   I think a lot of of it has to do with the fact that I’ve never really been good at being a friend to another male adult.  I have a hard time connecting with my gender on…


  2. 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…


  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. Call Eli

    30 Dec 2017

    “Call Eli” Los Angeles 2017 This store was someone’s dream… I’m going to say that it was Eli’s store and ergo Eli’s dream of how he was going to make it big in the world.  He had a dream of how he was going to leave his mark on Los Angeles…


  6. 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…


  7. At a loss

    28 Dec 2017

    “At a loss” Los Angeles 2017 I’m at a loss.   I don’t remember making this image.  And while I don’t recall making this image, I am 100% certain that I was the one who made it.  That may sound ridiculous but when you are married to a photographer and have a…


  8. 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…


  9. 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…


  10. 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…


  11. 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…


  12. 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…


  13. Waiting

    22 Nov 2017

    “Waiting” My train rides with Elliot always lead to Union Station.  The Expo line stops at 7th Street and we transfer to the red line and ride the rest of the way to Union Station.  Sometimes we’ll get out and walk down 7th and then turn left, up towards Grand Central…


  14. 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…


  15. 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…


  16. 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…


  17. Metroreflex and other nearest misses

    13 Nov 2017

    “The Driver” “Metroreflex” “Meanwhile on the red line” “Doritos” “Sunbeam” “LVR” “See something say something” “Nap time” Here’s another batch of images that were all about to hit the edit room floor.  They span the course of the last few years with the earliest being in September of 2015 and the…


  18. An Ending

    11 Nov 2017

    “An End” The image says a lot but not the whole story.  Since the early days of scientific exploration, coinciding with European imperialism, we white people have done whatever we deemed nessecary at the time to further our empires and our fortunes.  We have always perpetrated these crimes of progress off the backs of…


  19. 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…


  20. 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…


  21. (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…


  22. 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…


  23. Twinning

    31 Oct 2017

    “Twinning” Here’s another attempt at seeing what’s happening around me instead of looking for the image I’m expecting to make.  I walked into the LACMA book store right after the guy in the picture.  Anna Maria and the kids were already wondering around inside looking at books and posters and…


  24. Current Mood 171025

    26 Oct 2017

    “Current mood 171025” I appreciate that it takes time to get film processed.  I need that time, I’ve realized.  In fact I think I actually need more time than just a week or two to feel comfortable.  Don’t get me wrong, it would be nice to be able to see…


  25. Current Mood 171025

    26 Oct 2017

    “Current mood 171025” I appreciate that it takes time to get film processed.  I need that time, I’ve realized.  In fact I think I actually need more time than just a week or two to feel comfortable.  Don’t get me wrong, it would be nice to be able to see…
