Something real assuring about a dogs love and a fire, hard to beat it ya know? I dunno about y’all but I am so ready for some dirt roads and camping this summer
Wendell Berry said that it’s not from ourselves that we learn to be better than we are. That feels true for all my life milage.
There’s an idea in my recent story that I learned from my buddy @milesadcox and all the good work he does in the world. .
Around a fire he spoke some truth about owning your space. Not stepping back, not being in the shadow. But showing up and owning what you have to give.
For an Enneagram 8 like myself, an 8 who has been terrified of taking up too much space because ironically in other seasons I’ve taken up way too much out of lack of self awareness. Those sort of words are important to hear because if you hide yourself out of fear you can’t live wholeheartedly.
But when you land in a place of deeper consciousness it’s easier to own your space in a healthy way. I’m sure I still bounce in between the guard rails some days, but most mornings I wake up and I can be proud that I’m intense. That I want to feel like rush through me. That I love creating images and sometimes I’m really dang fine at it.
Enough rambling from me for one post. Love is a gift, give it today
For the first time that I can remember I ain’t in a hurry for nothing. I’m telling y’all the truth, if you can hold life loosely it’s a better ride.
You’d think photography would have made a patient man out of me, it’s a whole bunch of waiting, but it never did. Photography just kept me thirsty.
Anyhow, if no one in your life hasn’t looked you in the eyes today and said you’re enough just the way you are I hope you can have that gift to someone after reading this.
Just a fella enjoying a glass of rosé wine and some kisses from his best dog 🙈
Dog does what it wants
Hi y’all! If you’ve ever enjoyed what we’ve created along the way it would be lovely if you grabbed a copy of our new book. This is the single biggest way you can support us so we can keep stomping around the world doing what we love most! Your local indie book shop might have it laying around or there’s an Amazon link in my bio.
Being a photographer is literally living my dream. I’ve been blessed that I’ve gotten to live it. It’s not lost on me that my slice of life is a gift. I get to wake up everyday and explore the world and create images. .
But it also takes funding to keep it all going, that’s just the simple reality of it ya know. I figure it’s akin to a musician you enjoy or a TV show that hits you right, so maybe you buy their album or have a Netflix subscription. Being a photographer takes financial resources to keep on keeping on.
Grabbing a copy of my new book is the single biggest thank you that you can send our way. Forever grateful that once in awhile y’all think what we do once in awhile is interesting enough to follow along ❤️
Loved teaching a little Adobe @Lightroom and @Adobespark photo workshop this week in NYC. Thanks to everyone that came out, always a gift to have an opportunity to share how I create work and pass along our experiences. #LightroomPetTips
If you haven’t checked it out yet, I’m truly enjoying the new Lightroom CC. Very neat to have my raw files synced between my iPhone and laptop. And if you’re busy creating graphic/text/photo post, checking out Spark is worth your time too. #sponsored
Empty streets, no leashes, doing what we want out here!
Slushy NYC snow days 🌨
Melting. Gah. Maddie is the most snuggliest ever 😭 I’m real fond of her
Even after all these years I’m still just as content with a $40 roadside motel as any fancy spot you could find.
I sure do love being on the road, there’s a lot of peace in the hum of 33” mud tires on the highway. This morning I was thinking about a time 6 years ago I was just about out of money and was gonna have to hang up my exploring hat. That’s a humbling spot for a man to find himself in. The good thing about that season in my life is I didn’t own much and was asking for little. One morning I got an email from People Magazine looking to print a few photos and I was happy to send ‘em their way. They offered me $900 and that just about blew my mind, that anyone would sling money my way for images. I took that $900 and kept filling up my gas tank.
We’ve come along way since then, both career and heart work. But this year I’m gonna be on the lookout for that fire again, when an opportunity came my way that helped change it all.
Driving towards NYC today to teach an Adobe @lightroom photo workshop at Milk Studios! Prob should tell Maddie she gets to come too? 🙈
And hey! I’m thinking that I’ll have plenty of time to do a little book signing while I’m in the city...not sure where yet but I imagine I’ll find somewhere neat 😊
