Art.

Made it out to SF on Saturday to check out some new art from Ferris Plock, Kelly Tunstall and Mark Warren Jacques at Shooting Gallery / White Walls in SF. So much color at this show! It was a great time out. -Tim

New Years Crab Hunt

Finally getting to the photos I’ve neglected this year. Starting with New Years Day in Oakland Chinatown. This guy really wanted to show the white boy what they had behind the counter. A bunch more photos to come. –Tim

Yosemite / Update

Tomorrow morning at 500 I’m headed out to Yosemite for the first time in 10 years. The last time I was there was right when I started college and it was such an incredible trip. Really felt like yesterday. On that note, it’s time for a brief, but long overdue update about BIT BY ZEUS.
This past year had some major life changes (for the good) and as a result, I was not able to post as much as I’d want, which doesn’t mean I’m not shooting a ton. I’ve been shooting a ton. Basically, long story short. BIT BY ZEUS is not dead. I plan to keep featuring and collaborating with the photographers that I keep meeting, and am working on a couple of “zines”. But, one thing I am planning on changing is my approach to photo. The photos on this site, that Brian Z and I created, have basically been about 1/ Life in the city 2/ Escaping the city 3/ The strange balance between the two. I want to dial in these themes and really want to start challenging myself to make more interesting photography.
Anyways, here’s some photos that I made on my last trip to Yosemite in 2004. Here’s to coming back from this trip with way, way better photos. Thanks to all the of the talented people that I’ve met since creating this site. Meeting and working with so many great photographers is the reason I want to keep sharing and collaborating on BBZ. –Tim

Oakland Sun — 4/14

Some photos from the last couple of months; Tahoe, Oakland, Art Murmur, and SF. On a technical note, I picked up a Ricoh GR for everyday stuff and have been totally loving it. I needed a digital camera, and chose the GR for some of its quickness and because it could fit in my pocket. It’s been pretty great, and have been bringing out my medium format camera with it as a result. That’s all — Tim

Shawn Whisenant

I only knew of Shawn through the photo community and was always impressed by his work and attitude. Although I never met him, I felt like a friend had passed. Last Wednesday, I stopped by Book & Job Gallery in SF to pay my respects.
