Fox’s multi-cam comedy series “Mulaney” presented nineteen of my fine art images recently. The producers wanted to stage a “real” gallery show that would feature the work of one photographer. I drew the lucky straw and fine art images that I’ve shot from around the world found themselves on the stages at CBS Radford. It was a thrill for me to see my work on “Mulaney’s” gallery set as the all star cast worked through their rehearsal before shooting the next day.


Karen Somers & Company created the fine art images for Rob Lowe’s character’s office on the set of ABC’s “Parks and Recreation”. His character is an overly zealous health nut that constantly works out. The images created specifically for this set features a images that echo his athletic interests.


Karen Somers & Company created a series of fine art photos for the set decoration on Showtime’s hit series “Weeds” this season. The collection featured classic images of New York City with a modern twist.


Whenever I’m traveling, I take the time out to shoot my interpretation of the new world around me. I was recently in Chiang Mai Thailand shooting for Universal and on my days off would wander the streets looking for photographic inspiration. There was a lot there. Here are a few of those moments.
