See the Last Movie

I have been home for a little over two weeks and my sense of time is still warped. The road seems like a distant memory. Maybe its the sudden change of the season, maybe its the fact that I have gone into overdrive since returning. After two months of living out of a car I got home and had the desire to just purge. Piling up the goodwill bags. Fully reorganizing and painting my garage studio. Letting go of so many things I have held onto but don't need. Maybe there was a larger sense of discovery on my trip. That is what road trips are so often about. I could get really deep here but I won't try and overthink it. Lets just say I am feeling motivated to get all aspects of my life in order!

As for my photographs, I spent the first week home finishing up all the freelance work I did on the road.  I wanted to give myself a little space from the drive-in theaters and approach them with a clear mind. I have since added a handful of images up on my website and started getting my first round of Kickstarter enlargements out. So, Kickstarter Backers, if you selected your rewards, keep an eye on the mail! And, if you are interested in ordering prints, frames, or woodblocks I have started putting drive-in images in my

Time to get back to work. A top 10 highlights from the trip will be coming later this week.

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!
