This is a little look at a minty Minolta X-370 I picked up at work. It's a tasty looking camera, and the images it produces are also very yummy. Take a look at the awesomeness:Read More
This is my first "Mini Project." These small projects are an attempt to keep myself sharp and focused on creating interesting pieces of work. Not only that, but they're a challenge. I'm not promising photographic gold here, but rather an exploration of creating.
My first exploration is a series of me looking at myself. Pretty great, huh? Take a look, and feel free to critique & judge.
It's been months since I last posted to this beautifully designed (and imaginatively named) blog. I suppose I got busy, or something. Wait, I did. Holy shit.
The past four months or so have been wild and crazy. I expanded my photographic horizons with my first gallery show. I helped curate a gallery show. I worked my retail day job like a madman, and sold large amounts of photographic equipment to the Minnesota public. I also spent a large amount of time with a lovely girl. We had many laughs and good times. Then I capped off 2012 with some holiday-ing and gift-giving of sorts.
Then as 2013 started, I began some new classes. A new Ikea showed up in my bedroom. I ate many tasty things. Time apart from the lovely girl left us separated, but happy in the end. I just recently tried my hand at some horribly wonderful acting in a video class. I'm learning a lot of new things. I'm keeping myself preoccupied, and it's all very exciting. Below are 86 images from the past few months. Enjoy them.
So all summer I was shooting street photos. I discovered a love for invading peoples' spaces and capturing candid images. Minneapolis is an incredible city for street photography. The varying types of people I encounter within a half-hour period is inspiring. I can walk six blocks downtown and watch a guy get into his Ferrari, then snap a photo of a man sleeping on a bench. The stark contrasts and similarities are what have driven my work throughout 2012.
I hope that my first gallery showing this December can showcase my passion for documenting the city's complex stories. The show is called "The Big Ass Show." It's being put on by the art collective I'm a member of, The Friction. We have a group of talented, young photogs showing how they seeing Minneapolis, and are inspired by it. It should be exciting.
Here I am starting another blog. I've failed to keep up on one for so long. The hope for this site is to keep up with it, and maintain a portfolio of my best work. Wish me luck.
Also, most of my current work hasn't been posted anywhere. I mean, it's trapped on my MacBook Pro. It must escape sooner or later. If you'd like to keep up on my iPhone-ography, though, check out my Instagram!
