My Style
I do not edit any of my images beyond cropping. I capture angles, light, proportions, and motion as I see it.
I look for beauty, irony, the unnoticed, the profound and the absurd and try to capture or magnify it.
And in that sense, I suppose my photographic approach mirrors my music making.

The iconic sign for the Portland Theatre in Oregon, where OBF performed the St. John Passion

Just For Fun

This sign was too absurd to pass up.
So my brother and I staged a photo op.

Driving in the heart of Moscow is hard.
Sometimes a horn just isn't enough.

Walking in downtown Baltimore-
you can't script this stuff.

Yes I have a penguin named Schubert.
He has assisted in many inpromptu concerts
and has been there for the birth of many compositions - his talent is holding down
wayward pages.

Boston, or San Fransisco?

You've got to hand it to the Irish: for a country that relies so much on foreign tourism, they don't make it easy.

In San Francisco, there is a working museum of antique mechanical games and novelties - in which I found this doozy....It contains a piano, organ pipes, a violin, and all smattering of percussion. Drop a quarter in and it will treat you to an automated rendition of all the hits of its bygone era. Consider it ProTools' grandfather.

If you see a giant, baby blue metal seabird towering over you, you might be in Eugene, OR
