Last Saturday was my dear friend Alice’s 30th birthday party. There was a blue grass, 80s cover band called Love Cannon, who were absolutely amazing. They play every Wednesday night at Rapture. You should definitely go see them. In lieu of a gift for Alice, I set up a photo booth and had a great time with everyone there, from what I can remember. Here are a few hundred shots from the night. Enjoy…love you Alice!

Wow, I never thought that I would actually start blogging. Well, I guess I was wrong and here I am. After many years of perusing hundreds of photographers’ blogs and plenty of non-photography blogs, I finally have my very own space to show my work and the things that interest me. Let me start off by saying that I am by no means a deep and profound writer. I truly write what’s in my head and that’s why I love making pictures. They can speak for me.

As for other blogs, I’ve looked at horrible ones, with awful writing (which won’t be me), and I’ve read amazing blogs, with phenomenal writing (which also won’t be me). This will really be a place for me to gather all the things I find cool about photography, websites that I find interesting, work photos, family photos and life in general. So please, if you can bear to see the world through my eyes, join me, make comments, let me know what you think. I would love it.

With all that being said, I thought I would start my first post with a recent shoot I did with fellow photographer Ben Hernandez for the SPCA of Sissy Spacek. She’s an absolutely amazing person and we were able to capture some great moments of her.
