Busy, busy, bee

It has almost been a week since the Kickstarter project was funded.  I am still in complete awe of how we all pulled together to reach our goal!  I can't express my gratitude enough to all of you who donated and shared the project.  Now onto the planning!  

There are some really exciting things in the works.  As soon as I can, I promise, I will share them with all of you.  Until then though, I have lots of hours to spend in front of the computer as I move forward.  The first step in finalizing my itinerary, so keep your eyes open in the next week or two to see when I might be visiting a drive-in theater near you!  I am still open to suggestions so please, send them my way.  In the mean time, I don't know about the rest of you, but the weather in Portland has been amazing.  If you can, pack up your blankets and go see a movie at your closest drive-in.  It will be an experience that will last you a life time.

Also, if you are interested in more ways to help save drive-in theaters, I suggest you check out Honda's Project Drive-In campaign.  They are on a mission to save as many drive-in theaters as possible and they could use all of our help.  Just as it took a community to help me move this project forward, it will take a community banding together to help keep these American icons around for future generations!

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!
