Courting and betrothal

Going all in is a lot deeper than most people think. It’s beyond commitment by light years. I love my wife. I am committed to death. I am not yet all in — I desperately intend to be. In a year from now I will love her more than I could possibly imagine. Ten years […]

Transitions

I suppose its pretty normal for life to be full of change–I don’t often enjoy it, even when I may know its good for me. Well this past week has been no exception; I’ll spare you the painful details but lets just say the only real consistent, not to mention mostly constant, emotions I’ve had […]

Getting back on track

For those of you who don’t know, running your own business is difficult. This past year has been particularly trying for me and honestly I am still in the thick of it. I finally had a chance the past month to actually just take photos for no other reason then because I wanted to, it […]

Self Portrait – Day 5

Day 5, it was late, I was about to head to bed and realized I had forgotten to take a picture – Okay my wife reminded me. I really like this idea. It was fun to take and gave me other ideas. That being said it didn’t work out and I was too tired retake […]

Self Portrait – Day 4

My computer is busy processing a bunch of images from the wedding I shot two weeks ago, so I don’t have the ability to update my photo of the day today. In lieu of that I will simple continue re-post the first few days of this project, here is day four. The day after a […]

Self Portrait – Day 17

Well I guess I lied. I got to thinking about the whole point of this project is to push myself even when I don’t feel like taking pictures or feel inspired. To create something anyway. That being said I am not all that happy with this. It was a quick idea since I haven’t done […]

Self Portrait – Day 16

This was not intended to oppose yesterdays hand shot, but I like how that worked out. The original idea was to just have jumping feet; the cuffed pants and argyle socks are the ‘me’ part of it.   I like this one and how it looks better then some of the jumping ones; my second […]

Self Portrait – Day 3

This was a last minute shot. I was shooting a wedding this day so I had ample equipment and scenes and a wife to remind me that I was doing this project! So while the reception was winding down and my 2nd photographer was on duty, for about five minutes I rattled of 20 shots […]

Self Portrait – Day 2

This day was one of those beautiful Seattle mornings when the fog is still lingering and the sun is shining through making everything glow. I figured I would take advantage. The dot of light burning into my pack is really just a lens flare… By the time I got my camera ready and everything in […]

Self Portrait – Day 14

So today (even though it is tomorrow now…) I am taking a cue from another photographer… I certainly am no where near her quality and technique, but its not a terrible start. No real substance though. I’ll get better at it. The first place I went wrong with this is that I really didn’t have […]

Self Portraits

I recently took up a project of taking a self portrait every day for the next year. (I was a little late in thinking about to start at the very beginning of year, but if it was a resolution I probably would have given up by now anyway) I am about two weeks in and […]

Day of Graffiti | Legally…

This is a little delayed from the actual day we took these photos; Brian and Maile’s wedding had dibs. It was a fun day in the sun painting with Brandon aka, ‘trew’. The best part is all the people that stop and watch, I assume that thoughts like, “Wow, that is pretty bold to be […]

Portraits

What does it really mean to take someones portrait? Is it simply capturing their face for historical or sentimental reasons; perhaps to show who they are with out the use of words? Is that even possible? I have a particular desire to really take someones portrait. To know them; to experience them. It’s wishful thinking […]

Liliaceae Tulipa

I am having a hard time writing this post about my venture up to the tulip fields. I originally had just a photo and was going to note some of the more interesting aspects of the day. Then I progressed on to trying to relay my emotional connection with my annual trip to the fields. […]

Insecurity/Intimidation

  So let me tell you this, I am not a good photographer and I am certainly not creative. Now I don’t want to say that just to get some response. My intention is that of a humble admission to myself. I’ve spent the last four hours watching a good photographer work; it was inspiring […]

Honestly

I really hate to admit this. It feels backwards and inconsistent with the kind of person that I claim to be. The past hour I have spent contemplating on whether or not I would ¬†let this go out into the inter-webs and to who know who will view it and judge me for it in […]
