Yeah...so I wasn't able to do ALL of the photos that I wanted to do today. I was only able to do the Swope Park Rangers game, but I was able to set up a shoot for next week, so I am excited about that. However the images came out well.

I did however keep true to my skinhead friends who were at

So, god damn...it has been a little while, right? A few days since the last update. It has been crappy here weather wise, two ice storms in one week. The first one was actually pretty fucking amazing. Thunder and everything. Put me to sleep like a rock. Damn that was amazing. HOWEVER, let's fast forward to today, when there is about two inches...

So, today, I ventured up to Kansas City Missouri and enjoyed a quick photo shoot with my good from Nicolas Harris. I was there a LOT longer than I photographed anyone or anything, I only photographed for about 45 minutes, but was out there hanging out for about four hours. I think that the photos came out fantastic. They are a part of my on...

So, today is Fat Tuesday, the start of Mardi Gras 2018. I know that there are places all over the world who are partying today, and my hometown of Lawrence, KS was no different. At about 11:30 in the morning when I walked out of my favorite coffee shop in the downtown are and heard the sounds of a jazz band not too far...

Here are the kids

Sometimes, depression just hits. Today was one of those days, well over the past three days really. I have actually cried more times over the past two and a half/three days than I have in a while. I broke down to a friend of mine over the phone. I broke down today in front of Sam, and I am about to break down again...

As I have sat back and did a lot of photographing this past week and been looking for a job, I have given another interview to the local university newspaper, a pretty good one not about my work this time but about a class that I am teaching and about documentary photography as a whole. I think it is worth a read. So go do...

Yep, Today I decided to go back out to the Skate Park and do a bit more photographing. It was fun, as I spent a good hour out there, trying to to get about 60 photos together, being my first time out there this year. I think I got a few good photos together. What do you think?

These are possible new images for the

fastboyent:
@skywoland lol well when I see him again or if (this was actually the first time I had ever seen him out of the other four times I went out last month) I will let him know.

Tonight has been such a fantastic night. Started off with the Eugene Richards talk at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and then I went down to the Lawrence Community Photo Studio where I have a few new images hanging up and enjoyed about an hour down there talking to people and realized that there is such a thing that one can be too fucking high...

Well, yesterday was an amazing day. I was able to attend the Women's March here in my home town of Lawrence, KS and was able to take my camera with me. So of course, I took some photos, over 550 to be honest, and I edited down to about 125 images (the editing took for fucking ever, trust me) but the images came out...

catgrey:
These are very powerful photos, thank you for sharing.
fastboyent:
@catgrey of course.  And thank you for the kind words.

So...I decided to do one more test tonight, using the boy as the model for the work. It was a short shoot, but it went pretty well thankfully. I got some positive results, but it was more of a test to make sure thatI could get the two system of flashes working at once. And the answer is that Yes I Did. Lol. I...

Funny thing is that @avrora had mentioned in the last blog that maybe I should go through and do some more commercial work to maybe earn a little extra money. This afternoon, I thought about that same thing and pulled out my off camera flashes for the first time in a long time and did a few shots with them tonight with my son as...
