Time Flies

WOW, I feel like its been forever since I’ve posted something. As I mentioned earlier last week the past week and a half have been consumed with various work related projects, mainly charity related with our upcoming Gala event in Chicago this week. Unfortunately with my schedule being the way it is, I haven’t been able to allot my self the time needed to process the photos I’ve been capturing. To give you a behind the scenes glance however I have right around a thousand photos waiting for me to sort and process, so be on the look out for the missed days photos to start showing up slowly but surely. To give everyone a heads up as well, this weekend I will be in Chicago helping run our fundraising event, and will have no access to my computer, however I do plan on capturing the great city of Chicago with my lens and will have plenty to share once I return 🙂

Now on to other exciting news!

First of all I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter celebrations! The family took a trip out to my Grandmas for the day, with which I spent most of the day mowing her yard for her haha. But it gave me some great time to think about the direction of the blog and all things related. I can’t stress enough how much I have enjoyed the growth of the community so far, and look forward to the excitement and growth that is to come!  Read more…

Flatware part 2

ISO100 50mm f/11 1/40sec

For todays photo journey, I decided to be a bit adventurous and explore uncharted territories, which really means driving around aimlessly looking for a scene to invoke some sort of excitement within. Its a bit of a gamble when racing the sunlight looking for a new scene in an area you are completely unfamiliar with. Read more…

Nice relaxing evenings… hasn’t really been the case around here haha. This time of the year is truly a busy time for me, with the Charities big fundraiser coming up in about a week and a half, and some nice sized design projects going on at the same time it puts me into some odd hours. I wouldn’t want it any other way to tell you the truth! I love momentum, and with the projects that will be coming up this summer as well as the excitement I have in store for Nick Exposed I can use all the momentum I can get 🙂 . So I do apologize ahead of time for any missed descriptions or delayed post in the next week or two. I will try my hardest to have the time set aside that you.. my Fantastic blogging friends deserve.

The Treasure Folder


As creatives we often find ourselves reaching out in hopes of finding this wonderful word. Personally I love surrounding myself with as much inspiration as possible for every aspect of life. Above my desk I have a bulletin board and a white board filled with all sorts of inspiring pictures, quotes, articles and other randomness to remind myself to keep moving forward.

Just this week one of my absolute best friends, an EXTRAORDINARY photographer/artist/creative, and I shared our inspiration folders with each other. As she pointed out, it was like getting to look into each others minds and see the bits that make our creative section tic. I realized what we are inspired by says a lot about our direction in which we are heading both creatively and in general with the other inspirations we acquire. However, at the same time we often miss the many treasures that are within these powerful inspirations.

If your anything like I have been in the past, and have acquired a folder full of inspiring pictures (over 6,000 in my inspiration folders right now), it either just sits there collecting virtual dust or you look through it from time to time and get a stagnate inspiration more often than not, where your inspired but have no clue where to start to put any of it into action. Often at most we get an idea of a subject to shoot or create, yet our folders hold so much more than just these simple ideas. Read more…
