Shooting for Lucy Schwartz

Towards the beginning of this year I was asked to shoot for singer/songwriter Lucy Schwartz to give her some artwork, and that is exactly what we set out to do during this shoot!

Song Freedom + Youtube Videos!

I love making videos of my shooting process. It is sort of like taking lots of internet friends out into the woods with me to keep me company. One of my favorite things to do is to teach and share how I work, and little videos have been the best way to do that. Sometimes […]
