Best Road Trip Ever

What a crazy 5 days it has been since the Kickstarter launched.  I am happy to report that we are 25% of the way towards our goal already!  I am so thankful for everyone out there who has donated and shared the project.  It is such an amazing thing to be creating something that each of you is now a part of.  It isn't my project, it is our project!  So keep sharing and lets keep the donations rolling in.

I have always loved Kickstarter but now that I am on the other end of it running a project, I love it even more.  Before even hitting the road, it has allowed me the opportunity to meet and team up with other amazing and creative individuals such as Kelly from Best Road Trip Ever.  I discovered the Best Road Trip Ever app during a search for ways to get the most out of my iPhone while on this trip.  It is a great app for finding amazing sites to see all over the country and her blog is equally as inspiring.  

After and amazing phone conversation a few weeks back, Kelly and I have decided to team up!  I will be helping her add more drive-in theater locations to her app which is really exciting!

Check out her website here, and you can see her most recent blog is a guest post by yours truly!

Portland, OR, United States of America

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!
