Every year, there is a big photo convention where photographers come from all over the world to see the latest and greatest new equipment or wedding goods but many come to see old friends fom across the country or globe and have a good time. I spent some money on a new system so I can now carry on my body 6 cameras and I'm pretty happy about that. But I really go out there to see old friends and make new ones. There was a lot of that this year!
I brought an old canon point and shoot which broke the first night, then borrowed one of Nate Kaiser's (Image is Found) on the second night of craziness. The color shots were Kodak Portra 160 and the rest were Kodak Tmax 400. It was a fun trip to say the least!

I think there's something within most guys that deep down, they're always jealous of a good beard. This is Ryan Haack. He's a man's man. A good friend, great cook, dad, husband, photographer, videographer, surfer, and he smokes a pipe. And he has the beard most guys wish they could grow. So these are my portraits of man.

My blog has been incredibly neglected this past year. I've been shooting a ton and have things from last January that should be blogged but still haven't. That's a whole other issue I'm mentally dealing with is that I'd rather blog things right away but at the same time, I'm submitting most of my work to various blogs and publications. Generally in that case, I find it better to hold off blogging for their sake. But now I find myself getting crazy behind or forgetting about posts in the past. Do you experience the same mental tension? What are your thoughts?
Then there's my family. I shoot them everywhere we go and love the pics. I tend to not post as many on my blog because this is the showcase of my work...but at the same time, my family is the biggest part of me and I think they're pretty dang cute. I'm planning to post more of them too. Do you want to see more or less family?? Thoughts on posting personal work?
For now, here's an afternoon at the beach with my little gang! Love them.

I'm traveling this week with a group awesome photographers called the Mammoth Men. We're driving up the coast of Califorina, camping and doing all sorts of crazy fun stuff. You can follow the trip at Mammothmen.com or our TUMBLR page

When I travel to shoot weddings, or engagement shoots, I love to document areas surrounding these events. Usually it is a hometown, or a favorite place for couples and I try to capture the surroundings. NYC is definitely one of my favorite cities to walk around, people watch and photograph. On this trip, I ran across a friend who let me borrow her Hasselblad X-Pan; a camera I've been wanting to buy for a long time. Basically a 35mm panoramic camera that is awesome. I shot one roll on that camera and here are most of the pics and some others. I didn't edit one of these photos. Straight scans from Richard Photo Lab. What do you think of the panoramics?
