Escape to LA Pt. I: Cross Country


It’s a strange feeling to get in the car one morning, and leave your home, life, and everything you know behind. It’s a feeling both sad, happy, free and terrifying. That’s what we did six weeks ago when we left the South, and set out for the West Coast. We loaded up our two [...]

Escape to LA Pt. II: Landscape


I am enamored by the natural world. I feed off of my surroundings, and I am drinking in the vast range of beauty out my front door in Southern California. I am indulging my secret landscape photographer within. As I said before, the allure of this place will not soon be lost on me. [...]

Escape to LA Pt. III: Muse

As photographers, we are defined not just by our style, and who we are, but also by the subjects we choose. I believe I’m still in search of my perfectly suited professional subject, or perhaps such a pursuit is trivial to strive for, and I should just accept that this will be a [...]

The convention scene. No state’s tourism would be complete without the [...]

Florida: Daytona Beach


I rolled into town near dusk and made my way to the KOA where I would spend the next couple nights camping in my little tent amongst the roar of motorcycle engines propelling bike week revelers.  Within moments of my arrival, a biker camped next to me made his way over to laugh at [...]

Florida: Panama City Beach


The first stop of my recent trip to work on my new project, ‘Florida: Eden Isle’, took me to the sunny shores of Panama City Beach where I spent a day hanging out with drunken revelers celebrating the not-so-timeless tradition of Spring Break.  It was scary to think that not so many years ago [...]

My wife and favorite collaborator, Kendrick Brinson, and I were recently commissioned to spend two days photographing the town of Greensboro, Alabama where over a quarter of the population receives Social Security Disability benefits.  The assignment was essentially to build a cast of characters, and capture the feel of the town in [...]
