The Thunder is Rumbling and I am Face Up In Bed

It’s a stormy night here in northern Virginia. One of the only reasons I like this time of year is the lightning storms and rolling thunder. When I was younger, my Pops and I would sit out on the front steps of our Largo townhouse after a good rain and just watch the light show in the sky. Since then, I have always loved watching the flashing streaks across the sky and listening to the gentle rumble crescendo into an […]

Sketches & Doodles: 2016.0624

Happy Friday! It’s been a terribly long week and things are not looking any better. looks like next work week is going to be just as crazy. With the work week being a stressful mess, I needed to find a little time to get away and let my mind go. That’s where the Doodles & Sketches post cam from. Just a little highlight on the things that allow me to just let go. This week’s doodle is one my daughter […]

The Pursuit of Published Work

I have been shooting photography for a little over 8 years now—off and on. More off than on, but that’s another story. Recently I have seen friends of mine get work published in various magazines and some have even gone on to have gallery showings. That’s awesome that I am among so many talented individuals. Many who think my work is very good. So for the last year or 2, I have had the idea that I want to get […]

Getting Geared Up

I have recently decided that I want to take my photography and cinematography seriously. I am not exactly sure in what context, but I know I LOVE creating as much as I LOVE building.I sat down and had a bit of a meditation session. I have mentioned to several photographer friends of mine that I wanted to shoot more. I had to figure out why I don’t. During the meditation session, I realized that I only shoot with friends because […]

My First Attempt At A Cinemagraph

I had a shoot a couple of weekends ago with the cute model Charlotte Dell’Acqua. We were on a farm located in southern Maryland and I had this grand idea. I saw a cluster of reeds and, luckily for me, the organizer of the shoot had his drone. That was all I needed to created a little artificial wind.After a few tries of trying to get the proper amount of movement in the reeds and in the model’s hair, I […]

Find The Thing That Rejuvenates You…

…and do it to death! Let me repeat. Find that thing that rejuvenates you, and do it to death! I have a standard 9-5 as a web designer for a small media company. I am finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate on work when all I can think about is what I am going to shoot next or how I want my next lighting setup to look or how I need to edit a photo I shot for the best […]

My, How I’ve Grown

I was sitting on the couch last night watching my Pens beat up on the Caps in game 4 with my iPad in my lap. I am having to go through the device because I got that annoying message about how my iPad had reached capacity. I was clearing out some old apps I don’t use and some eBooks I have finished reading and I came across an old FUSE Magazine.Without viewing the cover, I started swiping through the images. […]

A Hard Lesson In Preparedness

Coming off a somewhat productive weekend, I spent a little time reflecting on a recently missed opportunity.I had the opportunity to shot the amazing Chicago duo of Cali Sefora and Morgin Pabst. If you have checked out any of their work, and you know anything about my love for inked women, you’d know that this was an opportunity I was NOT going to miss. This post is not about the shoot. That’s for another post. This story is about how […]
