New Beginnings

It's been a long time since I sat down and made a post like this...

So, almost 10 years ago my wife and I started a wedding photography business together. We had a lot of fun, put out some great work and met some truly awesome people (many of whom make up our current friend circle). But ya know, after 8 years of weddings, I ultimately decided that I really needed to get out and try some other things, and I'm grateful that I have a partner who is encouraging and supportive enough to allow me to do that. In 2011 I "retired" from shooting weddings and began pursuing my own freelance work in design, filmmaking and photography.

It's been a little slow going these past few years but I'm enjoying the ride. This year alone I've gotten to work with some folks that I deeply admire and respect and I've been involved with cool projects left and right. Most recently, I worked with Atlanta photographer Zack Arias on developing his brand new site DEDPXL as well as co-directing & filming the newest iteration of his photography education video, the OneLight Workshop.

I also recently had the opportunity to photograph the first new project of 2014 from prop and replica maker Volpin Props - a 1:50 scale model of the Planet Express Ship from the TV series Futurama. It's a really cool piece that went for $4000 on an open auction on eBay!

I'm really happy to finally have site up for the first time in a very long time. I hope to stay consistent about posting new work, travels and other experiences here so please stay tuned.

Thanks for taking the time to read.
