    Pirating the Sun // On Board the "Ra" - A Solar Boat Adventure (29)
    Last month I got to be a pirate. A “Pirate of the Sun” to be exact. I got to join the crew of the “Ra”, a solar powered vessel makings it way around America’s Great Loop Waterway in an attempt to make a Guinness World Record. (www.solarboatchronicles.com & www.facebook.com/SolarBoatChronicles) The boat is skippered by the gregarious, […]

  • Grandparents // My Family Legacy

    Grandparents // My Family Legacy (1)
    I am extremely fortunate and blessed to have four amazing and loving grandparents in my life. It’s always a joy spending time with them and hearing all of their stories.  They are from a pivotal generation, to think that when they were kids the horse & buggy was still a viable source of transportation is incredible. They’ve […]

    South Carolina Lowcountry Quail Hunting With The Crosby Family (16)
    The end of last month my family and I set out for a day of quail hunting at Gregorie Neck Plantation in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. I had the tough decision of either shooting with my shotgun or my camera so I compromised and took turns shooting both.  It was a beautiful day and […]

    New Years at Joshua Tree, California (15)
    A few days after Christmas I flew out to San Diego to help my friend Gary work out the remaining logistics for our two week Isla Angel de la Guarda Kayak Expedition (blog post coming soon).

  • Washington Beauties // Alicia & Cassidy

    Washington Beauties // Alicia & Cassidy (9)
       A couple of weeks before I left Washington for home I met an awesome new friend named Alicia.

    Wow… This summer has been flying by. For the past few months I’ve been in Anacortes, WA working as a kayak guide for Anacortes Kayak Tours.

    This past weekend I got to do another fun photoshoot with my photographer friend Susan Deloach. Our models were Caroline & Lexi, two dancers from Beaufort, SC.

      This coming Saturday will bring about the mournful loss of  a cherished member of the family, my grandparent’s backyard sycamore tree. After several generations of sheltering my loved ones from the sweltering lowcountry sun and with countless memories made under it’s expansive branches, it’s time for it to be laid to rest. Recently the tree […]
  • Test Shoot with Sydney

    _igp5428-as-smart-object-1
    The past few months I’ve been really focusing on improving my photography skills,  I’m trying to get to the point where I can start shooting professionally.  The photography field is super competitive nowadays, unless you have a distinctive style it’s hard to stand out. This style isn’t developed overnight, it’s a journey, and I’m finding  mine […]
