"The Poet's Apprentice" -

On rare occasions you meet someone by happenstance that has a profound effect on your life. Nathan Wirth is one of those people and my life is all the richer for it. Nathan took me under his wing as his Long Exposure apprentice in early 2011 and has played an instrumental role in the development of my art. His limitless patience, support, constructive feedback and friendship have been life changing for me and I cannot truly express my gratitude. Than you again my dear friend, you are a beautiful soul and this humble offering is dedicated to you!!

This image was captured on the evening before the San Fran Photowalk started. I spent an amazing evening on the side of this hill in Novato with my great friends John Kosmopolous , Athena Carey and Cameron Siguenza , staring in wonderment at Nathan's "Poet's Tree". What a treat that was!! It was great to finally meet John, Athena and Cameron in guys and gal are the best!!
