Yes, I Like My Pictures

Somehow it can feel naughty to say that I like my own pictures. Have you ever felt that? That you would somehow be perceived as not being humble, or being narcissistic, if you said that you love what you do? I don’t love every single picture that I take, hence why I only show 50% […]

Into the Earth

I went out shooting at such a beautiful location. I have been inspired lately by two things: creating something out of nothing with little to no budget, and working in nature. I often go back to themes that I have for my photography: nature, surrealism…and see how I can experiment with those themes. Theme can […]

Point & Shoot vs. DSLR

I think it can be very beneficial to a photographer to have a nice camera, especially if you have to print an image quite large, or if you need to share a high-res image that is very high quality. If you’re shooting a high volume of images to deliver to a client, you don’t want […]

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 […]

Dreaming of the Past

Fairy tales are very close to my heart. I sometimes feel as though I live in one all the time, or at least when I remember to. It is so easy to let negativity flow into our lives as though it were natural, but when we stop and remember that our lives can be exactly […]

Creating “To Be the Victor or Fall the Victim”

I went out with one of my best friends last weekend to create. I had a few ideas in mind, but it was Easter Sunday so most stores were closed. I had wanted to do a shot with lots of fabric, but failed to find a fabric store that was open. I ended up at […]

The Hostile Branches of Whistling Fog Forest

The process that I went through to create “The Hostile Branches of Whistling Fog Forest” is like none I have ever completed. I set out about six months ago to begin creating this series but soon realized that I was in need of, and in store for, a change. I wanted to start taking my […]

How the Forest Grows

I climbed a mountain in the rain and mud barefoot. It was a magical time, sinking into the dirt, holding on to tall weeds that grew out of the side of the mountain for support, pulling myself up so that I wouldn’t fall backward. When I got to the top the rain clouds had dropped […]

Throw it Away

Comparison to others is a learned trait, and so stopping that trend is also something that must be learned. It is far safer to follow someone else into the unknown on a path that is proven to work, but this path makes us forget about why we are on the journey in the first place. […]

Behind the Scenes Video: “Dark Lands and Evil Plans”

I was seriously lacking in the video department lately. I had tried several times but the videos just weren’t coming together, or I would run out of time. I even ran out of battery last time I tried! But finally I’ve put together a new behind the scenes video featuring none other than the best […]
