Re-visiting the Past and I Think I Am On To Something

When I first got started with reviewing images from a couple of years ago, I thought I hadn’t really come far enough to see a difference. In some respects, I was correct. I realized I hadn’t put in enough hours over the last couple of years to avoid some of the common mistakes I made in my shoots—be it be lighting, posing, framing, not capturing various angles/perspectives, etc. What I did notice is that images I starred in Lightroom a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Just Having So Much Fun

Did I tell you how much I fuckin’ love photography!? Being a photographer is amazing. But the true reward comes from the giant smile that graces my face when I am in the editing studio remembering the vibe or how awesome the person I just shot was. I have to admit, this comes after spending last night editing some photos of a friend I shot a couple of weeks ago. I was in a pinch. I booked a studio to […]

In The Editing Room

I am so grateful that I am able to work with so many amazing people – photographers, models and MUAs. I am humbled that I am starting to build a little buzz and I am even more grateful that I have a creative outlet. Since I can’t paint portraits or sculpt figures, photography gives me the ability to paint and sculpt in my own way. I am sitting here at my desk at work, both super inspired and incredibly tired. […]

The Countdown Begins

My favorite event of the year is 4 weeks away and I am counting it down. Yes, the countdown to Otakon 2016 begins today! I have been attending Otakon for several years. I have never cosplayed or led a panel, but I have attended cosplay burlesque shows and the ever popular “WTF Did I Just Watch” on numerous occasions. I managed to accidentally take over a photography 101 panel a couple of years ago. My bad… Of all of the […]
