Worst Blogger Ever? Best Followers Ever?
Worst Blogger Ever? Best Followers Ever?

There’s a few pretty simple social media rules out there, and all of you are familiar with them if you think about it for a minute: • post often • post things with little original content • post so readers don’t need to actually read (E.g.: lists, but we’ll get to that later) • turn […]

Make Them Count
Make Them Count

I originally had a drafted out blog post for this week, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, I decided to share this instead, which I posted yesterday to Facebook. I think this is an appropriate place to share it as well. I accidentally drew a collection of condolences on Facebook from the post, which I […]

Onward
Onward

In December of 2012 while I was moving out of Boone, NC, my dad was kind enough to bring me a 5×10 utility box trailer to throw all my junk into. Bikes, boats, skis, poles, seemingly hundreds of hiking shoes, office supplies, cameras, and about everything else you could imagine got heaped into this beast. […]

A Tribute to a Good Friend (Winter)
A Tribute to a Good Friend (Winter)

It is with great sadness that I write this post because it means my dear friend, Winter, has come and gone. Gone are the evenings of making fires to stay warm, the mornings full of new snow excitement, and the echoes of hooting and hollering heard around the mountain as the Stoke overwhelms those making […]

Grand (Canyon) Life
Grand (Canyon) Life

Gaps between writing posts hardly ever come from a lack of exciting news or new images that make me happy, but more so the writing to go along with it. I can never be satisfied with simply throwing up some images, saying I got a new contract and moved (again) across the country, because I […]

“There’s nothing worse than a stale blog”
"There's nothing worse than a stale blog"

I love writing blog posts. My track record of frequency might hint otherwise, but there’s something refreshing about looking back at a series of writings depicting a set time period–it’s really not all that different from photographs. I’ve often heard from editors, colleagues, and friends, that there is nothing worse than a stale blog, so […]

Mud, Rain, and Rhododendron
Mud, Rain, and Rhododendron

This morning a conversation, a friend and I were talking about what the past year of our lives have contained–it’s really amazing to think how fast the time goes, and how much can be fit into a little 365 day window. And although the past year has been huge, even since the last time I […]

Lake Tahoe Life
Lake Tahoe Life

It’s been more than a month since my “Manifest Destiny” post about my move from Western North Carolina to the Tahoe basin area of California. Much to my surprise, the past moth has been a huge era of introspection and change, as my personal shooting has halted, and my brain has been transformed to that […]

From time to time, I’ll get a project that just can’t be finished, for whatever reason. Sometimes it’s on my end, sometimes it’s on others. This one was just a nightmare of an edit with 5 different versions, and a media library that could send an OCD guy to an asylum. I finally geared down, […]

Manifest Destiny
Manifest Destiny

For those not totally up on your 1800s history, Manifest Destiny was the belief that individuals living on the Eastern United States seaboard were destined to travel west, and conquer the unknown beyond the Appalachians. This past week, I did something similar–although modern road systems and interstates made it quite a bit easier than my […]
