Humberto’s small business repairs and refurbishes motors for Ridgid Threading Machines and I was able to spend a day documenting the process.Read More
One of the wonderful benefits of being a photographer and working with so many different folks is that you get to learn a little something each time you go and shoot. Whether it be about who you're photographing, what you're photographing, techniques, technicalities, etc.
One of the things that I learned about Lori at Bake Lodge when we made photos for her business, is that she makes AMAZING cakes. So good, in fact, that my fiancé and I had her bake one for our recent engagement party.
Again, it's been too long since I've updated. Currently, Nik and I are neck-deep in home renovations to prepare for our engagement party (!) and things have been absolutely crazy.
Hope you enjoy a strand of mini-galleries from recent, and not-so-recent, assignments and shoots.

Nik and I also took our first trip together to Universal Orlando to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter amongst other attractions. An absolute blast. A great way to celebrate our engagement.
Well, it's been over a year since I've updated my blog. A few things have changed since then.
I took a small hiatus (sort of) from journalism and found myself working a full time job with mediocre pay and even less appreciation. I was making imagery in an industry I really thought I'd enjoy and perhaps I would've. If I would've had the support I thought I was going to get.
So after a falling out, I've been back in the journalism world and it's great.
I'm up near Flint these days, and covering stories there, mainly for FlintSide, a small, online magazine that is hyper-focused on the community. Which is just what I need/want.
The biggest change is that I'm not only shooting, but writing as well. It's a massive challenge for me, but there are definite benefits of writing my own stories. Among those, becoming a better shooter because I'm not just looking for stills, but for stories.

In addition to that work, my lady and I are still kickin' it, we recently adopted a dog and I retired the VW.
All-in-all, things are great and I'm really excited to continue working in Flint and telling the stories of the folks in the city.
This is Oliver. He's eight. And a great dog.
