constantly impressed by your work, can't wait to see more.
Wow. Thanks for the inspiration. BEAUTIFUL work.
Keep on doin what your doin!
Well first of all awesome landscapes. "Somber Exequies" would be my favorite of the bunch.
Hah I feel silly now, I've heard of HDR imaging and have messed with it in the past, just reading it actualy written out threw me off.
Just one more question in regards to the HDR imaging, is that a usual method for you? I can see traces of it in a lot of your landscape work, based on the lighting in quite a few shots.
By the way, thank you for the help
eazym - Thank you sir. I do indeed work everyday at improving.
Sniper - Thanks!
injection223 - Thanks! As for a normal HDRI pipeline. I would say no. In fact the majority of my landscapes don't use that technique. Every image provides new challenges. Some present themselves during capture, some during post. It's really up to you on how to handle them and what you want the final image to look like.
I hope everybody survived new years. I know mine was a loooooong night.
In case you missed INSOMANIA I made mini site with all of the photos from the event here.
Father, daughter, brother. - The last photograph I took in 2006.

Kimmy one. Shot that same day.
Kimmy two. Same.
Shot near the end of 2006.
I learned from Toby that Dreyer's Slow Churned Vanilla Ice Cream is a quilty pleasure for all.
In the future we could all end up looking like this.
Shot on New Years Eve through 01.01.2007.
In other Phil news. I'm currently getting prints made for a solo gallery show in Pasadena for February. More details to come, but if you are in LA or will be, please do come by. It's exciting for me because most of you know my work from web sized images, but I actually shoot to print big (so American) and there's so much you really don't see in a lot of my photographs due to that.
Also if you haven't visited my website lately (phfx.com) I uploaded the last song I made in 2006. It's a little piano piece called "IX". Much more traditional than my normal work.
Happy New Year to all!
I have so much to post.
Lets start with a photoshoot I did for designer Pinar Eris.
I've also made a little mini site where you can see some outtakes and unused shots...
As well as a high resolution behind the scenes.
Here's a youTube low res if you hate loading or quicktime.
I'd like to thank the models, muas (especially Jen), and Jay.
Here's Toby in a sheet much later that night after the shoot.
Some of you may remember a horror movie I did still photography for called Devil Girl. Howie finished the cut and finally screened the film. Congrats Howie! Here's a little mini site with many more of the shots I took.

Lovely, thank you so much for sharing!
Wow, you have some amazing stuff! I'm pretty new here, so this is the first time I've run accross your thread, but I was blown away from beginning to end.
Favorites: p07, p23, p28 (awesome tones), all the burlesque shots are great, but the first two and last ones take the cake for me, wonderful light in nov02, von01 is a lot of fun (and I keep noticing more and more to love when I look back at it), the color and feel in von06 is perfect, Gray Colossus is impactful (the little yucca sprout on the right makes it ), the last photo of 2006 is probably my favorite overall (it would be between that one and nov02, actually), and your most recent designer shoot is beautiful in color, comp, & concept (plus the added illustrations work well without taking away from the shot or the clothes).
Amazing, inspirational stuff! Thanks much for sharing, and if you need me, I'll be busy digging through your site for a good hour or three .
zemotion, GriNGoLoCo - Thank you. I'll attempt to post more. I promise.
tiefight - Glad you like my work. I'm working on some new projects so I'll have more stuff relatively soon.
Until then here's some new stuff.
sm02 - Digital pinhole.
sm03 - Toby
sm04 - Jay
nt04 - California Poppies in their natural color! I love this orange.
nt05 - There's a tiny egret in the middle of that hill. It's the white dot.
nt06 - While wandering around up north I came across 1000 sheep.
nt07 - They were being herd by an extremely friendly Peruvian sheep herder and his 3 sheep dogs.
nt08 - These are all wool sheep. Most of them are growing their coats back.
nt09 - I also found a burnt marshy area with a little life coming back into it.
nt10 - The water actually remained untouched by the fire, but the plants in and around it were torched.
As amazed as I am by your recent stuff, I think my favourite set of yours would have to be your amber set. It just does the right things for me. That, and the 'secret dunes' set, especially Exodus.
thx for inspiration
