Maybe you already took the hint, maybe you didn't, but in case you weren't thinking fourth-dimensionally, the title of this blog post is sort of a spoiler alert in and of itself. I plan to post a follow-up blog after this weekend with photos of this year's show. I'm not big on comparisons—I mainly just care that I'm doing the best I can do at any given moment, but who knows? Maybe I'll come away with the shot of a lifetime. Maybe I won't. Probably the latter. Either way, it will become a historical experience that I can build on.Read More
It's funny how time is. You can think about one moment in your past, and on one hand it seems like yesterday that you were holding your brand-new, perfect little baby boy in the hospital, and on the other hand—HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU TO STOP EATING YOUR BOOGERS, EVAN?!?!?!—it can seem like FOR.EVER.Read More
I've gotten to help out some of the local up-and-coming bands, and it's these guys that I want to talk about. It's one thing to have the opportunity to photograph the well-known established guys, but it's something completely different to be a part of a new band's development.

Recently, I was wandering around downtown, and I thought to myself, 'I'm just going to take a picture with my phone, process it, and post it without stopping.' I didn't stop moving my feet (with the exception of crossing streets, as I value the fact that I rarely get run over by motorized vehicles), shot the photo, edited the photo, and posted the photo on my Instagram feed.
