Week 01 – Be here now.

  First official Project 52 photo!! The idea behind this self-portrait is all about being present and aware. I recently sat a Ten-Day Vipassana Mediation Course that taught me so much about living a peaceful and positive life, and this inspired me to create something that symbolized the peace on the inside, even while things …

Week 0 – Project 52

  To start things off, I thought I’d do a BTS (behind the scenes) of the Project 52 Promo Photo. This image was pretty simple to create, though it required creating a blue background from scratch because, unfortunately, I don’t have an awesome blue wall like that where I live. I did, however, have a …

Project 52

  I have officially decided to start my very own Project 52. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it basically means that I plan to shoot, edit, and post one self-portrait every week for one year (52 weeks in a year, get it?) with the intention to improve my skills and …

The …

Easter

Eggciting News…

  It’s Easter, why wouldn’t I photoshop me and my grandma’s face on a couple of eggs!? I know I haven’t posted in a long time, I’ve been really busy (mostly with work)… but I do have plans to take photography on full-time this coming summer, as well as put a lot of time towards …

Backyard Slacklining

There’s nothing quite like slacklining with a good friend on a nice day in the Spring. That friend was Mr. David Tindle, and I can’t wait for our next slacklining session. I thought I’d bring out a few lights and see what I could make of our backyard session (I always like watching the sunset …
