So, I have had a little fun this morning and decided to take a few more photographs for the "Living with Sam" thesis project and I am liking what I took today. I have selected three images that I really like and of course wanted to share them with you. I know which one I like the best, gut I wanted to see if anyone...

Recently, I have had the chance to go over some old photos and negatives that my mother had given me about six months ago or so. MAN, I am so happy I did, I found a TON of old and what I think might be lost negatives of photographs from the early to mid 1980s of me and my family, like right after I was...

While I am a game day photographer for the Swope Park Rangers, for last night's game, I was unable to take a lot of the photos of the game for the team. I was there, but I had to cover MANY other assignments that I am sad to say that my counter point, my good friend Nick Smith, was unable to capture because the...

This morning, I went out with my good friend Dr. Frank Perez to some wetlands that are close by and did about an hour worth of photography. There wasn't that much around to shoot I am sorry to say, but I did get a few okay shots.

Yep...that is about all of the update that I have for today. I am tired as

Well, I got some encouragement when I stepped on the bathroom scale this morning. I realized that I have lost bout 22 lbs since I have started riding my bike again. I know that is odd, since I really have only started about a month and a half ago RIDING riding again...but the good thing is that I was riding a lot last year...

So, I am taking a little bit of a turn on the style that I am going to be working on my MFA thesis, Living with Sam, and will be having some more fun with it...not worrying about getting the perfect portrait shot or whatever, and just going, letting things happen. I think that was one of my issues, is that I was trying...

Yep yep yep...a non photo blog. I just so want to get back out on my bike. The weather has been too fucking crappy recently though...I am talking about hail, thunderstorms., tornadoes, you name it. Also, there is just not a lot to ride around here. It sucks. I normally just ride around my home city of Baldwin. However, outside of that, there...

I've been wanting to ride my moped around SLC but I don't trust the weather here yet. 
fastboyent:
@Zhunter I would just ride.  Why not? Bad weather? Just go slower or stay closer to home.  That is what I would suggest.

So, something happened this past week and a half or so that I have not ever really thought would happen. I started listening to some of the music that I had listened to back in the day when I was considered a "Crusty Punk" or a "Gutter Punk"... bands ranging from The Short Bus Kids, The Devil is Electric, This Bike is a Pipebomb, The...

So, I know that I have been away for a bit of time...forgive me I have been VERY fucking busy. I found out today, just about a half hour ago, that I will be able to pass this quarter with at least a 3.0 GPA, which will allow me to stay at SCAD for another two quarters, if not longer (if I don...

Sam

So, as I said yesterday, I have done a month long shoot of the Latino Americans: 500 Years of History stuff, and I started to get a little burnt out on it, so I started to photograph my girlfriend Sam for a secondary portfolio that I can work with and to keep me fresh and then sometime soon in the future go back to the...

So, Friday was the final day of the Latino Americans: 500 Years of History grant that I was working on with the University of Kansas, which was an interesting time. It was bittersweet. I did one shoot at the first part of the afternoon, and then spent the evening in the State Capital City of Topeka, wrapping up the last bit of the LA500 program...

So, I did a reshoot with Jose today, and I am SO much happier with these and the ones before. These photos are amazing.

I like them a lot.
