After wedding season the winter brings cold weather brings me snow, wind, wanderlust and precious free time. Be it study of composition, light, or history, I try to improve my craft in some facet when I have this free time. This year I spent a lot of time in the studio, and by studio I mean a dirty garage surrounded by weights, pull up bars, tool boxes and leaves that have blown in from my yard that I neglected to rake with the hopes that they would blow into my neighbors yard. Jokes on me I guess.
I found people that I loved to photograph this winter. Phinex, an old friend of mine is one of the most influential artists I have ever know, we used to write together, play music together, and take rides to nowhere with the music as loud as we could. Maria is a musician that I try to follow around like a groupie. I’ve spent a lot of friday nights watching her play battling the pre-wedding anxieties that are as constant as the sun the next day. I met Blu this past year when we both started Jiu-Jitsu around the same time. There’s a kinship with training partners that is hard to explain to someone who hasn’t had someone who has been trying to choke you unconscious while pushing you to improve at the same time. Rob is a photographer from whom I’ve sought council time and time again. He’s retired now and onto bigger and better things but has been an open book every time I’ve had questions. I photographed Ashley & Julia a few years ago in Assateauge and have had endless workouts with her Husband, Dave. My wife, rarely let’s me photograph her, when she does, she shines. She’s confident, beautiful, funny, and steals the show. It’s hard not to feel like I don’t do her justice in those arenas, but I’m always going to try.
Studio sessions are available for bookings with no limit to the possibilities of what we can do.
