Onto other things, for now

April 25, 2013 § Leave a comment

As much as I want to post more work onto this blog, I’m finding myself busier and busier with my Free Portrait Project. It’s really been picking up since I launched the Facebook and Tumblr pages. If you want to give it a look, I’ve given the project the name “American Raw”, and it can be found HERE

If it sounds like something that you’re interested in, please don’t hesitate to send me a message. I would love to collaborate with all of you.


Cheers for now.

A New York Valentine

March 11, 2013 § 1 Comment

On February 13th, I woke up at 3 in the morning to catch an early flight to New York. After a quick layover in Denver, I landed in the big apple to spend the next few days with my lovely girlfriend. Even though my early childhood was spent living in Virginia, I had never made it to NY. Naturally, I brought a camera. Because of my style of photography, I only shot black and white film.

Please enjoy the New York experience through my eyes.

It’s been a while, but here’s some b&w film for ya

January 6, 2013 § Leave a comment

Over the last 3 months, my life has changed drastically. I went from strictly shooting photos, to small business consulting, to a brief stint working at Starbucks, and back to creative work. Currently I’m working part time with a company called Ioda Media doing art direction. The other half of the time, I’m doing some marketing gigs.

Anyway, here are some pictures from the last 3 months taken randomly on my Voigtländer Bessamatic.

“Anew Sight” — Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Official Selection – now public

October 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

In the spring/summer of 2011, I started a documentary project with a good friend. This was my first dive into documentary filmmaking, guided by the great Paulius Kontijevas. He showed me the ropes, and together we created “ANEW SIGHT”. After initially submitting the film to festivals, we gained Official Selection at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. The video remained private for festival purposes, and was only released into the wild about a week ago.

The film follows Portland barber, Eric Caviso, who explains the metaphysical benefits of one getting their eyebrows waxed. Specifically men. Sounds crazy, right? See for yourself.

Be sure to check out Brick’s Barber. And if you live in Portland… you should stop by for a visit. It might just change your life.

Behind the Scenes of “Koyote” — 35mm b&w film

September 11, 2012 § Leave a comment

Last weekend I was honored to join Jameson Posey and his film crew in the middle of nowhere. Jameson was filming his senior thesis film, titled “Koyote”, in the Alvord Desert, OR. The desert is an old dried up lakebed, with ground that closely resembles what we know of the moon’s surface. From Portland, this is a 9 hour drive, on the complete opposite side of the state. My role was to document the experience on B&W film (my favorite!). While most BTS (behind the scenes) photos are taken in digital, Jameson was awesome enough (I mean it) to let me shoot in film. With the perfect combination of wide open space and unique costumes/props, here are some of my favorite shots from the trip. Please, enjoy!

Summit Lake, Oregon — 35mm film

September 5, 2012 § 1 Comment

Here are a few pictures from week 2 of my backpacking trip. We arrived at Summit Lake in the morning to fill up our water bottles after spending the previous night without water. It was nice to hang out there for a few minutes before getting attacked by the morning mosquitoes. These are from one of the disposable cameras.
