In Transition And the Re-Re-Reinvention Of An Imagination Moth

So I kinda fell off the wagon. I guess this was expected. This is what happens when I have too many balls in the air. At any point in time, more are going to drop than I can handle and my forward progress gets derailed. The company I work for is in a disaray. My duties have changed — and while it’s a step up — it’s no longer the fresh path I want to follow… or even rewarding. I […]

My Mission To Be More Productive… And The Procrastination Chronicles

So I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how to become more productive and how to generate an income working fewer hours per day. My immediate goal is to double my salary (if not more) before noon every day. That’s what’s rattling around in my head right now. I got this message in my email from Tony at Coach.me and it links to this article that talks about the standard 8 hour work day and how “it takes [us] eight […]

Shoot Postponement And The Ensuing Letdown

I have a cool shoot scheduled for later today. I am going to join a number of other photographers to shoot models with NFL-themed bodypaint to celebrate the new NFL season. Stoked! Gear packed. Ideas flowing. Research of poses done. Lemme check my email. Wait… What…!? “Today’s shoot has been postponed…” FUCK! There’s nothing to a creative like having creative juices flowing and then having the rug pulled from under you, leaving you flat on your back with the weight […]

The Non-Traveler’s Guide To Nowhere

I must admit something a bit shameful — I have not traveled from the east coast. That’s right, I have never been far from the east coast. I have never been up past New York and haven’t been lower than Atlanta since I was 3. The farthest west I have been is Chicago, but I was 10 and only visited for a day or two. I’m 40 now… I’ll be 41 in December. This post came to mind because I […]

The Importance of Practice… And How I Need More Of It

“Practice makes perfect.” How many times have we heard that in our lives. How about, “perfect practice makes perfect”? In my household, my Pops preached “practice makes BETTER,” because you never really practice perfectly or BE perfect. I have lived by that for my entire life… until I got to college. Then… As I have gotten older (…because I am NEVER growing up), and pursued new endeavors, I realize how important practice is. I was that kid who would get […]

A Whole New World

WOW! That’s all I can say about the last month or so. I have met so many amazing, attractive, talented, intriguing, friendly people and been introduced to so many amazing sub-cultures. Cosplay, goth, steampunk, Latin dance. Wow, I am so excited and SO HUMBLED by the words and gratitude of people I have shot. I was almost brought to tears — at work — by a young lady I worked with this past weekend at the DC Bachata Congress. She […]

“I Have The Best Friends” And Other Related Thoughts

If we have just embraced after coffee or I have not spoken to you in forever — I love each and every one of you! I believe I take it for granted, but I have some of the absolute BEST friends in the entire world. Granted, my circle is very small. But my friends are a complete snapshot of who I am. Funny, clumsy, creative, thoughtful, loving, forgetful, introverted, extroverted, sexy, passionate, grumpy, classy, etc., etc., etc. I had another […]

I’m Never Gonna Grow Up

Get over it. I’m never gonna grow up. But my art and my eye will. I admit, I’m a bit of a perv. That’s no surprise to people who know me. I still have pervy adolescent thoughts and I love my basement full of toys. But I realized a shift recently. Enough so that I felt compelled to write this. Let me preface this post with the fact that I LOVE glamour and erotic photography. The shape of a woman. […]

Gearing Up For The Con

Sounds like an Ocean’s Seven intro, but I am actually talking about the upcoming Otakon convention in Baltimore this weekend. I am so excited and can’t wait! So many people! So much cosplay! So many anime episodes to watch! So many Gundams to build! So many games to play! So many photo opportunities! But before I head off to the destination of fellow anime nerds everywhere, I am wrapping up some loose ends. I have a TON of photos still […]

The Countdown Begins

Seven days! Seven days and counting to the east coast’s largest otaku gathering of the year! I know. I know. I keep talking about Otakon. You’re probably as tired of hearing me talk about Otakon as you are hearing about Pokemon Go or being bombarded with twerk videos… (sure, I like bouncy asses, but I’m a boobs guy…) Anyways, Otakon is so important this year because it’s kind of a benchmark event for me. This is the first opportunity I […]
