Christopher Kalamazoo is a long way from San Francisco. When Chris left his small-town Michigan home to come here on vacation with his parents several years ago, he got more than he bargained for. He met my friend Jeremy and fell in love. Jeremy wanted Chris to return for purposes of pursuing that love and I wanted him to return for purposes of pursuing my photography. So, as a good friend with an ulterior motive, I brought Chris back. All of our wishes came true. Jeremy and Chris moved in together and are partners to this day. I got some killer photographs that are now finally seeing the light of day–and made a wonderful new friend in the process.

Clayton & Leigh Day One Opposites do attract. Clayton is a modest young man who has worked in banking and nursing. Leigh, though more diminutive than his partner, is outgoing, ambitious, entrepreneurial, a self-made man by the age of 20. I met them through mutual friends when they were visiting San Francisco. They wanted to be photographed, Leigh more so than Clayton, but shot together nonetheless. I invited them to spend two days at my house so I could get to know them better and have plenty of time to capture their unusual relationship. As might be expected, the first day of our shoot was the more innocent, even tentative. Clayton was unsure of himself, but Leigh was resolute and determined. I was struck by his unbridled joy at sharing his love for Clayton with the camera.
