Again, not my typical editing style but I had fun with this one. I’m calling it, “Movie Poster”, and it’s probably going to make me a million dollars.
Location scouting for an upcoming shoot was a success.
Getting out on my bike and riding until I find an image I want to capture is the best therapy.
I asked for a vote between two photos in my IG story again today. I’m comfortable enough calling this to a close now only a couple hours later. This one is the overwhelming favorite.
I asked—you all answered. This was the most voted-for photo of @leighannnn__ that I polled in my story earlier this week.
I’ve been experimenting with different types of editing; more specifically, subtle editing; even more specifically, LESS editing overall. This shot was taken in extremely low light conditions with zero setup apart from me looking at Leighann and asking if she’d be fine with me grabbing my camera and taking a quick series of shots. We were standing in our front yard enjoying the evening twilight while our dogs were sniffing for places to poop. Deep and romantic, right?
But that’s what I love so much about photography. It can lend more weight to a moment than we might have perceived in the actual moment itself. This is a natural shot and she’s not posing. She’s watching our dogs and the look on her face tells me she was feeling at peace. I wasn’t thinking of any meaning when I shot. I just wanted to try a low light experiment. Now it’s one of my favorite shots of her and I’ll keep it forever.
The moral of the story: if you’re a photographer like me who tends to struggle sometimes with confidence in their ability to take meaningful photos, cut yourself some slack. Just get out and shoot. Play around. Make mistakes and learn. Don’t overthink it. Don’t overdo it. You’ll find that some of your best work (by your standards, at least) can come when you least expect it.
Charles and Patricia were some of my first clients after making the switch to photography full-time. Even though this shoot feels like ages ago, and so early in my creative journey, it's still one of my favorites. Of course, that has everything to do with my subjects. These two are some of the most likable and respectable individuals, and when combined they form an absolute power couple.
Thank you again, Charles and Patricia. Thank you for the opportunity to get started in my career, and for the opportunity to know you both.
PRO TIP: Swipe through the photos to get the seamless panorama this photo was intended to be.
Venice is one of those cities you have to see in person to believe. The photos and films shot there will never do it justice, and this photo is no exception.
This factory is seemingly polluting the air a great deal, right? It might be a shocker for you to know it resides right along the canal in Copenhagen, Denmark; a country that is aiming to be the world’s first zero carbon city by 2025.
Perhaps even more shocking is that this is actually a clean energy plant and the smoke you’re seeing is in reality vapor. It burns through enough waste each year to provide clean energy to more than 60,000 homes, and it produces more clean water than it uses. .
Even more shocking is that the slope of the building is used as a ski slope, hiking slope, and climbing wall.
The future of our planet will hinge upon big (and fun) ideas like this. It’s designed by @big_builds, the firm of world-renowned architect @bjarkeingels. Check out his episode on the @netflix show “Abstract”; it’s quite fascinating.

Happy Holidays from us to you!
P.S. Up until an hour ago my stocking was an old @rei hiking sock. @leighannnn__ decided it was time for an upgrade.
One of the cooler things I saw on my tour of Broadstone Arts District was the artist in residency program. The complex isn’t only located within the downtown art community, but is an active participant within it. This is @jono.vengo, one of their artists-in-residence who is living and creating in the space there. His work is fantastic and worth a look. The link in my bio offers plenty more information on how Broadstone is helping connect Phoenix residents to the wider art community.
New couch, who dis?
If anything in our house looks stylish and appealing, you can thank @leighannnn__ for it.
