Melissa, 2007.

I was cleaning up the house a couple of weeks ago and stumbled across a roll of film that apparently never got developed. I got the mystery roll processed and discovered it was from a trip to maine I took a couple of years ago with my good friends Melissa and Mike, both of whom I have since lost touch with for the most part. The trip itself was an amazing journey for me and it was remarkable to find more evidence from it after so long. There were only about 5 or 6 images on it due to a malfunctioning camera, but this image stood out to me and I wanted to share it. Enjoy.

Banging around some ideas in my head about a new project, of which this is part of a tentative first step, I'll explain more as I get more images and make more sense of it myself. In the meantime I hope you like these test runs.

So I finally got a few short trips in, and while I'm not left with a huge pile of new images, I do have a few that I'm curious about. Posting will probably slow down as fall and winter arrive, partly because its usually harder for me to travel, but also because my favorite kinds of light are near impossible to capture. I have some plans and thoughts in the works though and will do my best to keep this blog reflective of them. The first batch of attempts will be soon to follow.

So, the posting has been a bit more sparse as of late than I would like it to. Which really can mean only one thing. Its high time for new adventures, as I am not only an adventuring addict but my pictures do often seem to turn out best when off exploring new surroundings. I'm in the process of planning more of these excursions, with a definite trip set for later this month. Until then I'll post whatever I can, photo's of mine or others that intrigue me or that I find pertty and all that other fun stuff.

At long last the site is up and running and allows you to actually see things! Sorry it took so long to put up but it has been a hectic few weeks. It is still on the more basic side of things, due to the enevitable complete overhaul, but it does excitingly have a link to kipton art where my work is available to purchase. More posts are soon to come I promise, and more new work is on the horizon as new adventuring plans are nearing. Stay tuned.

Click, 2009.

Progress is being made on the website. That is at least until it gets a complete face lift by my talented friend Matt Jennings. The temp site will be officially up in the next day or two so if you have a few extra seconds give it a gander and let me know what you think.

Sorry about the delay in posting. Things have been a little busy. Trying to get various projects off the ground and will hopefully be making progress soon. Stay posted.

Going through and organizing all the files on my computer means that I'm finding good pictures that I never posted. Going to take a brief detour from new work to some oldies but goodies instead.

Hey all. It's been an exceedingly busy week for me, so the posting has been a little eratic. To make up for it I decided to post three images today. They all seem to work off of a similiar idea to me and are a bit different than what I usually shoot, so I thought it was worth it to post them together. Enjoy and happy weekend!

Wing, 2009.

This is one of my favorite images from everything I have taken recently. Very curious to hear what people think about it. Hope you enjoy.

Kyla, Italy, 2009.

Due to the high temperatures and humidity outside, it seemed only fitting to post this photograph. Mostly because I wish there was an ocean that close to me right now. Sigh.

Seen, Italy, 2009.

This photo was recently included on Wanderlustagraphy, a photography blog curated by the exceedingly talented Amy Elkins. It has remained one of my favorite places on the web, especially for new photography, since she started it a few years ago. I would highly encourage any one curious to spend some time going through their archives. There is a huge amount of amazing stuff on there.

Distance, 2009.

Sorry about the delay in posting, it's much harder to do when on vacation. Things will get back to normal soon I promise.

For those interested I have just started doing some album reviews for an online magazine called Wears The Trousers. My first review should be up in the next day or two with another one soon to follow. Check it out if you get the chance, I'm rather excited about it.

Slate, 2009.

This is probably one of the strangest photo's I have taken, I feel its more creepy than what I usually make in a weird way. Maybe thats just me. I'd be curious for feedback on that. At any rate I'm gonna dedicate this photo to my friends Mendel, Jay, Christina and Matt who will probably have similar expressions later this after noon. Good luck on your test guys!

Ground Control

So I can't quite remember when I decided to do start doing this exactly but for the last year or two I have been trying to maintain a very specific photo diary of sorts. That of take-off and landings and the strange ride in between. I fly a lot. At least for someone on a modest income and no transcontinental business duties. And so, on the 8 or so minimum plane rides I take each year, I take at least one photo. As I'm flying back home early this morning I figured It would be thematically appropriate to include an earlier photo from this series.

NYC - Seattle, May 2009.

I'll be back early next week and I can't promise I'll be able to post in the meantime but I will do my best. Cheers to happy traveling.

Has anyone ever asked you: If you had a superpower what would it be? My answer has always been to observe the past, to be able to watch without interfering. I'm beginning to realize that this is why I love taking photographs. Cheapest form of time travel I know.

Dog Day Afternoon

So, I've been trying to do a post a day. All well and good, but I'm swamped with images for the first time in a long while and I'm excited. So, since there have now been three film posts in a row I think its time to spice it up again. Hope you're enjoying your summer as much as this pup. Ciao.

Triumphant

Finally, Finally, Finally, got film developed for the first time since graduation last year. I only just got the rolls back this afternoon so there will be much pouring over images and editing as the days continue - but for the time being, here is one that caught my eye off the bat. Tory says its very meta, I'll let you be the judge.

Because Colorado is beautiful in rain.

Going home again soon. Doesn't seem to matter how long I'm gone, the land will always captivate me.





State of The Union

So, in an effort to post more and after many talks with both friends and generous strangers I have decided to start posting more digital work. The two most recent posts are already examples of this shift, and for anyone who knows me it may seem a bit strange. Without access to the labs and an uncharted school-less landscape ahead of me I have decided there is really no point in being all persnickety over digital vs analog. If it helps me make work than so be it.

Right now I really don't have much in the way of a digital camera, and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. As such all of these posts will be labeled "Point-N-Shoot". Please keep in mind that these are shot with a small 3 megapixel camera with no initial intention to be anything other than family photos, essentially. As a result they will likely not be of the same file quality as my film work.

They will however mean more new work and a means by which to get me out of my head - which to my mind is a very good thing.

Found this photo while cleaning stuff up on my computer, reminded me that there is some good stuff left to post while I wait to get my new film back. This was actually shot by my girlfriend Tory on election night 08 but I love it so much I thought I'd post it here. Photos from Italy and out west are soon to come I promise.

Thursday, June 25, 2009



So, once again, almost unsurprisingly lately, I haven't updated much. The reason of course is that I haven't really taken pictures of any kind for quite some time. Which, at least for the time being, has started to change. A recent trip to the pacific northwest and another to Italy have left me with quite a few rolls of film just waiting to be developed. In the meantime there are believe it or not a few digital images that I'm rather fond of. They are not "my work" but I like em just the same so I thought I'd show one or two here.

With any luck new posts of my film work will be soon to follow.

Thanks,

Elyse

I took this photo during "operation ceasefire" my sophomore year in college. It is still one of my favorite portraits.

up off the mat

So, I seem to have abandoned this site for a while. Not just the site really, I also haven't taken a picture in months. Trying to sort things out or what not I guess. I've been thinking more and more about photography lately and there is definitely a large part of me that would like to start taking pictures again. To that end I have decided that I should be more proactive in this area of my life. Force myself to pick up my camera. As that hasn't happened yet I don't currently have any new pictures. But I do have some old ones that never saw the light of day, so I think I'll dust em off and put em on here. And in case anyone is interested and wants to see what I've been doing with my time in a photoless world check out my new editorial music blog FastForwardRewind.com
Thanks,
