Saturdays = Youth - 97x Next Big Thing Shenanigans

Maybe someday I'll write about how we all got up front. For now, I'll leave that to your imagination. 
Thanks to Alan for buying be a ticket and forcing me to go with him. It was a blast.

Golden evenings with new friends on the edge of whatever the Floridian equivalent of winter would be. 

I want to capture the way that I remember. A little bit less realistic and a little more idealized. Fuzzy and warm and filled with reverie. Like all those stories the family elders tell at the holidays. They aren't completely accurate, but neither are they false. They occupy the grey area between truth and fiction that all great stories must eventually land in.

A great photograph need not be realistic. But it must impart some larger truth.

It's finished. It's finally finished.

After an a laborious month + process, I've gone through every image in my catalog from the last 5 years and built and new portfolio, and a new website to go along with it!

Feel free to have a look around, make yourself at home!

Promise I'm going to get back to writing here. In the mean time, take a few minutes to read the story I've put on the home page, "Encounter" from my time in New York City this past fall.

Thanks for reading/viewing/riding along.
