Before They Pass

This is a very personal sentiment that I want to share, in the hope that the basic idea of it will inspire someone else. This past year has been a bit different for me, in that I’ve had some difficult ideas of my own that I’ve had to spend time thinking about and dealing with. […]

Shooting in a Challenging Situation

The 5th episode of the Framed Show’s “The Concept” aired recently, which features myself and powerhouse photographer Lindsay Adler duking it out to see what we create with the same location and concept. During this episode we were challenged to shoot at Coney Island and our theme was “twins”. I adored this day like no […]

The Concept: Episode 1 – Entrapment

How do I begin to describe this experience that I had, week by week, when looking back on it now the whole time we spent together feels like one run-on sentence? The time I spent in New York was, quite nearly, indescribable. Some back story…I have worked with the Framed Network several times in the […]

My Favorite Lazy Sunday

I love to create. This is no secret. I love taking pictures, editing pictures…heck I even like waking up at 4am to go on a 2 hour car drive to take a picture at sunrise. So today I wanted to show you what my favorite “Lazy Sunday” would be like. I went on a shoot […]

When Elements Collide…

I created an image at the start of this year that inspired me. The concept behind it really intrigued me, and the technique was not something I had played with before. Since then I decided to continue creating images like this, and I have found a wonderful fascination with it. I hope to get more […]

Creating “Solitary Confinement” + Using a Strobe!

A few months ago I was gifted some strobes from my photography-challenger & partner-in-crime, and I have been slowly working with them ever since. I haven’t done anything fancy, I just try to apply my love of visuals in photography to the Strobist way. I am resistent. I do not enjoy working with lights like […]

What Is “Originality”, Anyway?

We see words like “unique”, “original”, and “one-of-a-kind” thrown around a lot. It is what artists strive to be. It is how we as artists are judged. It is what determines if an artist is prolific or not. Because there is such emphasis on originality, I thought it best to define originality, and talk a […]

I AM A PHOTOGRAPHER

As I began taking pictures, my dream was to be a photographer. I thought that I had to quit my full-time job to be a photographer. I thought that I had to sell prints for a certain amount of money to be a photographer. I thought that I have to have a certain amount of […]

Creating a Mermaid, and Teaching It, Too!

I love mermaids. I love tension. I love anything abandoned. I love flowing gowns. I love water. Needless to say, I was very excited about this picture. Last August was when I first thought about creating this picture. I had the general idea of wanting to photograph a mermaid in a fish tank in an […]

What’s in a Number?

I remember when I started uploading my pictures to Flickr. It was my first real experience with social networking, and the buzz on the streets sounded something like…”So, how many views do you have”? I used to get Flickrmail asking that question, comments, and when I met people in “real life” too, it was the […]
