Do I have any followers left? I know that my posting has been sparse, but that’s primarily because my focus has been on freelance projects. In a way, finding more professional work and building my portfolio is exactly why I started the site to begin with. But, after building up my web presence for going on three years now, I can’t help but feel a sense loss if I’m not updating. For now, my life seems to be settling down enough that I can slowly start working on personal projects again.
In the mean time, I’ll be updating my online portfolio galleries, and posting some of the work that clients have given me permission to share. First up, I have my friends Tegan and Brian with one of my favorite weddings I have shot ever. The venue was gorgeous, sporting a beautiful church, amazing gardens, and a freaking playground for swashbuckling!
I love to cook, but I am usually way too self conscious to share photos of what I come up with in the kitchen. More often, when I cooked for others, I would tell them, “I won’t post this online…but that doesn’t mean that YOU shouldn’t…” But, I feel like that may be even more self-serving.
So, you know what? Forget modesty. I’m dynamite in the kitchen. I love whipping up an awesome dish and sharing it with the people I care about. I love seeing people’s faces light up when I show off a carefully prepared plate. I especially love coming up with new recipes for my vegetarian friends so that they don’t have to miss out on a solid meal in favor of settling for another boring salad.
My buddy, Kyle, happens to be one such friend, and is the most frequent beneficiary of such concoctions. Since he can eat fish, I whipped up one of my favorite creations: a sandwich with (imitation) crab, avocado, and homemade aioli.
In summation, I rock at cooking and I can take cool photos of that food, so expect more culinary posts in the future.
2014 turned out to be kind of a big year for me. I left my temp job to freelance full time, had my work published in a book, got married, moved into a house, and just last week I became a godfather.
Those are just the bigger events of my life from this last year. For all of the smaller moments and memories, I look back through the photos I’ve taken this year. That’s where all the tiger hunts, bike rides, fashion shows, travel, events, and quiet afternoons reside.
I found a split tree while were hiking and wanted to emphasize the textures in post using high contrast black and white.
This has to be my favorite photo of the day.

Fezzes are cool.
As summer arrives, Max must defend the apartment from ever-fiercer insects.
This shot was a bit of an accident. He was just helping me test the lights, and we got this. I dig it though.
I actually tried to get all artisitc and shoot this at a slow shutter speed to get the motion of the water. The ducks stayed as still as one could hope.
This is what I love to do more than anything, the love and support of those closeto me, as well as everyone I’ve met through the site, is what lets me keep doing it. I can’t say for sure where I’ll go in 2015, but I have some big plans in the works. So, keep an eye on the site, and we’ll go together.
