Last week I got word that I was a finalist in the Ripe Art Gallery "What is a Portrait" competition, juried and curated by Ruben Natal-San Miguel. While I didn't go on to win the competition, it is an amazing honor to be sending my three submissions off to New York to be included in the show alongside other inspiring photographers like Amy Elkins, Nan Goldin, Ryan McGinley, and Jack Pierson.
Since getting back from my tour across the county, I'm slowly adding new images to my shop. With the holidays upon us I am offering 30% off all print, woodblocks, and framed images through December 7th just use the code HOLIDAY30.
Awkward Family Photos:
I also started a fun new tradition of shooting Awkward Family Photos. Images guaranteed to stay on the fridge of friends and family until we can top it next year. I don't think I have laughed so much during a shoot as I did during these. By the way, chickens have taken the place of cats as least cooperative animals to try and photograph.
Drive-In Theatre Book Update:
Last but not least! I am still in the midst of narrowing down and editing photographs I took on my 65 day road trip this past summer. In the process of narrowing these down, I have caught a creative bug again and will be battling the rain in the near future to shoot a handful of images that I believe will really complete the story I want to tell. There is still a long road ahead but I am excited about the journey and will keep everyone updated as I progress. Until then, here is a recent image I have been working on.
