Going to Paris as a photographer is mesmerizing and overwhelming at the same time. I had not been to Paris since I was little, and I was way too young to remember. Most of the photos were of me sleeping here and there in front a famous monument.

As a photographer what do you photograph if you have never held your camera up to this city before? I looked through “Yvon’s Paris” before going and realized pretty quickly there is nothing in Paris that has not been captured by some form of glass before. Yvon’s images set the standard and as a photographer we are pretty much intruding on his streets, his canals, his glimpses of Parisian life. Yet I made my attempt to capture Paris. Paris the way I saw it with just one camera (Leica M8) and one lens(35mm Summicron). Enjoy, – Chris

Had the chance while in Los Angeles for less than 48hrs to photograph aircraft taking off from LAX. My good friend and fellow photographer David Wittig knew a good spot. Even tried some night time photography as well. The first two images I’ll add some photo geekness to. They are with a Leica M9P and 135mm lens. Anyone who has tried or owned 135mm on a Leica knows it’s the hardest to focus with as the frame window is tiny, not to mention trying to photograph a fast moving object with it. Enjoy.

I’ve always been fascinated with flying,I’m rarely ever bored in an airplane.
