Tech N9ne as photographed by Estevan Oriol

My favorite photographer, Estevan Oriol, posted this AWESOME shot of favorite my rappers Tech N9ne! I love this shot and something I love about both Estevan and Tech is that they both have maintained their integrity over the years and not compromising to what every one else is doing 

A great read about Instagram from Photoshelter

This a great read from the Photoshelter blog about an "old school" photographer gaining more fans and influence on Instagram than " new school" photographers

Wide Open Spaces

I had the opportunity to travel the back roads of Shawnee county to Burlingame Kansas. It's a very peaceful road and a great example of what I love about my home state

The Cluke Family

I've had the pleasure of Mrs Cluke since I first started working at Ross Elementary in 2000. She was one of the many people who helped me get my footing as a an 18 year old working with kinder gate aged children. Now, a few short years later, I was able to photograph her and her lovely family! The session was made more special both her daughters picked locations for us to shoot and poses!

Trains in NOTO


I took these two photos as I walked around NOTO with my friend Stephanie.  This particular train line had a lot of graffiti cars on it but this one (pictured below) just grabbed my attention

Terry Richardson Photos Unretouched

I really enjoy some of Terry Rochardson's photos, one of my photo projects was partly inspired by his style. It is very interesting to see his photos unretouched as in this article from Complex magazine http://www.complex.com/art-design/2014/07/terry-richardsons-unretouched-photos-of-mariah-carey-have-surfaced-online
Without all the retouching, his work seems rather unremarkable
