These were the results of my first trials with long exposure photography.
While they're generally scorned by beachgoers, I absolutely love seabirds. They have the most peculiar personalities and display hilarious interactions with each other. On a recent trip between coastal Texas and New Hampshire, I decided to try and shoot these birds in such a way that would illustrate the depths of their quirkiness.
This shoot was done as part of a product review I did with Dailystoke.com for Sand Cloud beach towels. The festival bag (pictured here) doubles as a backpack and a towel all in one, giving you a functional way to stylishly stash your gear as well as your towel between the beach, pool, and party. Sand Cloud has lots of beach imagery attached to their brand, but the "poolside" aspect was sparse. I wanted to fill this gap while clearly illustrating the functionality of the product along with the lifestyle.
Both models are amateurs. This was their first photoshoot.
Because everybody likes them and they never get old.
It's my favorite medium.
So Cal Sk8
This is a lifestyle collection I did for a new California based eyewear brand, Cold Water Classix. The goal of this collection was to project a desaturated "So Cal" vibe. (These photos were actually taken in Eastern Texas... but "Est Tex" doesn't really have the same ring to it now does it?!)
Both models featured here are amatures. This was their first photoshoot.
This is Bob Martin. He's been shaping surfboards for 4 decades. Bob is truly a master of his craft... even though he doesn't quite understand how to use the internet. Here is a glimpse into Bob's shaping bay. These shots are meant to look like the old film photos he grew up with.
Tiny Van Travels
Tiny Van Travels is a social media and affiliate marketing project I have been working on since January, 2016. The project follows my experiences converting a van into a tiny house/office on wheels. The overall goal of the project is to encourage others to contemplate alternative lifestyles, get outside, and reduce their overall footprint on the planet.
Ashley is an amateur model from Galveston, TX and influencer for Electric Soul bikinis. We most recently did a photoshoot for a product review with Elle Mer Swim on Dailystoke.com, a surf & lifestyle blog.
While living on Oahu, I got my first DSLR camera. It changed my world and has continued to do so ever since. These are are some of my first photographs. Unfortunately, I didn't have access to a computer yet when these were taken, so the file size needed to be lowered significantly in order for me to store them on a mobile device.
I spent October in a car traveling solo from Texas through New England. Here are a few excepts from my trip this fall.
