Newsletter Vol. 7

Just a quick update today since I am soaking in some much needed time off for relaxing. I hope the rest of you are able to do the same!

I am pleased to report that the release party for Drive-In America was a huge success! Thank you to all who came out and to those who showed their support from afar. By now, most of you who order online should have gotten your books in the mail. It has been amazing checking my email and getting updates and photos from everyone as their books arrive!

It has been a long crazy road the last three years as this project transformed from a dream to reality. Today might be small business Saturday but as you have all proven, you can take the vital step to support small businesses 365 days a year. I have said it before but I will say it again and again, thank you! There are a handful of books left if you are interested in getting a copy for yourself or as a gift this holiday season. 

Thank you Juliet for snapping this photo as I signed books. I of course was a horrible photographer and didn't take and photographs at the release party.

This fitting memory popped up in my Facebook feed just two days after the release. Taken two years ago at Hilltop Drive-In located in Joliet, Illinois. This was the first drive-in theatre I ever photographed.

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
