drinking + friends + photography = ?

happy st. patrick’s day everyone!

in honor of one of the biggest drinking days of the year, i decided to share some studio shot i did a few months back.

shooting on green, i did a few sessions with jay and elle.

jay’s turned into a mock-pseudo-sierra nevada ad (only because we were drinking my favorite beer, and i decided to photograph jay).

and elle’s just turned out weird.  i was playing around with lighting and color.

so i’m not really sure what to make of these…

but i’m behind on my goal for producing new images, so… here you go!

raking in ideas

ideas aren’t always easy to come by.

i can sympathize with this truth:  i resolved in january to concept and execute 2 new shots per month to beef up my book.

just an artist trying to exercise my creative muscles.

well, after my first shoot, i got busy and didn’t devote the time and energy needed to keep creating.

but the first key to keeping resolutions is to know how to pick yourself up and persevere after you drop the ball.

so here i am.

elle and i have spent the last few days conceptualizing.  and yesterday, we executed.

more to come soon!
