Recently, I’ve been working on journaling more about the images that I capture in an effort to share in-depth thoughts on the images I capture and to free myself to share more openly and in increasingly personal ways. Journaling is extremely freeing in that it’s a way of auditioning…

As I continue to grow my business and work on honing my craft there are often long periods where my ability commit to longer-term personal projects is not possible. When I first started my business, these periods could become frustrating because I felt that there were tasks I wasn’t…

I recently had the opportunity to explore San Francisco while on-assignment. Much like Seattle, there were hidden gems to be found all over the city. Unlike Seattle, San Francisco works hard to preserve and maintain its rich and diverse heritage. As a city, we model much of our growth based on…

Usually, when something upsets me online, the typical and dismissive response from most is that “It’s just social media”. It is a bizarre landscape that you cohabitate with millions of other people. By design, it is both intimate and public. Since I’ve started sharing my art online, I’ve made…
