Hawaii // 2014

ALOHA!

I normally don’t make personal posts on here, but I thought I’d change things up a little and share some images that involved 0 clients. Recently, I was fortunate enough to travel to Hawaii with 3 of my closest friends. It was really the perfect storm of availability for all four of us. It’s rare that we can all make out to see each other in the same evening so the idea that all of us could clear our schedules for 10 straight days was so far fetched that I think we’re all still unsure if it actually happened.

I decided I wasn’t going to take my regular photo gear along and instead went with a more portable/worry free option. I only used a small camera I could carry with me (the Fuji X100s, nerds.) and my iphone. A mix of images from those two cameras are below. It worked out perfectly. It was nice not lugging a bunch of gear around.
Hawaii was beyond what I imagined it would be; I don’t have the words to describe it. If you have the opportunity, go.

Now, time to start a busy photo season! More posts soon!
Mahalo!

Road Trip West // Columbus to Seattle // On a Big Rig

FOR THE MONEY, FOR THE GLORY, AND FOR THE FUN. MOSTLY FOR THE MONEY.

When I’m not taking photographs, I’m hanging artwork at a contemporary art center here in Columbus.  A lot of times, with that job comes other related responsibilities…like being a courier. In this instance, that meant riding on a semi full of artwork from Columbus to Seattle to make sure all the art is delivered exactly like it’s supposed to.

I spent 49 straight hours on the road getting to know my gracious truck driving hosts, husband and wife team Ed and Elisa. They got me all set up on the top bunk in the back of the cab which, lucky for me, had a home theater installed and small windows on both sides so I could watch DVDs and the midwest. We were on a tight schedule so we didn’t have time to stop and explore, but I was able to snap photos out of the cab windows throughout the trip.

Most importantly though, our cargo was delivered safely, oxen remained healthy, and no one died of dysentery.
