There is nothing quite like a good photographic mystery. I find myself constantly finding old photographs and negatives and trying to figure out the history behind them. I don’t know exactly why I’m drawn to it, only that I feel like the untold stories of ordinary lives are important and should be remembered and learned […]

Portraiture is definitely not something I would consider myself an expert on. I’ve always found myself a bit apprehensive telling someone how to “pose” or “look natural.” I guess it is the documentary photographer in me, but I don’t particularly care to try to tell the story of life how to unfold. There is something […]

So I have once again started the journey of playing with the different mediums of photography & combining them. The original idea was to capture “the moment” in the black & white, symbolizing the significance of the ordinary and how it so quickly becomes a memory. Now it has turned into something entirely different. The […]

“Living life” might be a bit of an overstatement considering I don’t actually speak to a majority of people I photograph. Last summer I went to England for a couple of weeks. To say that is changed my life is sort of an understatement. Mainly it changed my photography. I wouldn’t by any means say […]

Night photography is always something I have been drawn to. There is just something fascinating to me about the sharp contrast, tonal range, and all around use of light in the images you are able to get at night. I find that the things and places that are easily overlooked during the day come to […]

I have recently been working on a new endeavor. I took a videography class and as my final project I decided to do a short documentary film. I really haven’t done much work in video so this was definitely a new venture. If you have taken a look at any of my previous work you know […]

I have been shooting a lot of monochrome images lately. There is just something about a black and white image that just draws me in. I think, for me at least, seeing an image in black and white makes me focus on what is there because of the lack of color. Shadows are so prominent in monochrome. […]

This is a recent piece of mine that I entitled Photography: Through The Mediums. It is a sort of reference piece to different styles of photography over the ages. The image itself is a cyanotype, made by transparency negatives from a digital image. The golden frame isn’t actually old but a reference to a time […]

So I haven’t had as many posts lately largely due to the fact that I’ve had a lot of artistic ideas that I’ve been trying to bring to life. This particular piece of 10 cyanotypes is about a lot different things but the idea came largely from the art of handwriting. I feel that in […]

The evidence of human existence is always around us. Whether it be from current times, or from times long ago the world is full of quiet whispers of our existence. Some of these signs whisper quietly, unnoticed by many. Some of them scream loudly “I was here.” Many of these traces are only temporary, soon […]
