“The Look”

“No Smoking”

It’s inevitable, there are going to be times where you get caught shooting, and when that happens chances are you will get “The Look”. While this may intimidate some, it inspires others… like me… why not make a mini collection out of it haha.

I’ve said in the past that I truly try to respect people, and though I tend to get in close for some pics I try not to invade to much of peoples comfort zone. Yet, there are still times when I get caught and get some nasty looks. After getting my shot I always smile, give a wave or thumbs up letting them know Im working in their favor trying to make them look good. I haven’t been punched in the face yet, however there were times while in Chicago that I thought it could likely happen. But hey I gotta get the shot 😉 Read more…

Bikes and Bikes and Bikes oh my!!!

I love seeing so many bikes downtown, I myself try to keep things as eco friendly as possible and love the idea of biking places.

“Working out back”

Boy do I have a good deal of work ahead of me in order to catch up on posts haha. This has been a repeating trend over the last few weeks, but it looks like I will be back on schedule now as travel has settled down for the next few months and work should be back to a steady pace. Its all part of the adventure right 🙂

Here is a brief series from last weeks shooting before I took off for Chicago. Enjoy! Read more…

“After a long days work”

One of the tricks I like to do in order to spice up the daily photo walk and keep it fresh is to shoot themed mini series for the day. Its amazing once you think about it at how many opportunities there are to shoot one idea in multiple ways, whether it be geometry, color, composition based there are endless possibilities that will push your creative observation to the next level.
