I wrote about the 'California Beatdown Tour' in another blog post, but I wanted to share it here as well, because It was such an incredible experience for me. I wish I took more pictures, but I did all of the driving so it was hard for me to take pictures aside from the live shows


This was my first Engagement shoot with my cousin Jessica & her fiance Rhys. We had a great time goofing off & getting some awesome pictures. I'm really excited for their Alaskan wedding in July!


My friend Vin asked me if I could help him with a school project he was doing. I asked him what he needed & he told me that he was making a childrens book, but he wanted to make himself look really thuggish & threatning.  I thought it was a hilarious idea & was on board. Here's a couple of pictures we took



This was a fun little shoot I did with my friend Tiffany, I met her this summer at a Mexico Mission trip. She's from Des Moines, Washington, but she came down to California for college. These images were not pre-planned, she was doing all the work while I snapped away


This had to be one of my favorite trips I made this year. I'm a youth leader at my church & we had a Surf Camp planned for almost a year for the kids. We drove up to San Onofre State beach in San Diego, CA on Friday June 5th-9th I was lucky enough to stay for all 5 days & spend time with the kids as well as get breathtaking pictures. Here's some of my favorites from the trip


I started a new project called '35mmeveryday'  I wanted something to challenge myself in the sense that I need to stop & look at what I'm shooting. I love when I get my film back & see a picture that I took months ago & probably forgot about. If you'd like to follow my film work, here's the instagram

It's crazy to see how every year I somehow top the year before, whether it's shooting more shows, meeting new bands/friends, taking more pictures in general or just finding new editing styles that I like. It's been 5 years since I decided to take photography more seriously & It's taken me farther than anything else in my life has thus far.Thanks to anyone & everyone that says hi to me at a show, shares my pictures, likes my photos on instagram, reblogs me on tumblr, retweets my blog posts/pictures on Twitter or just cares about my work. I appreciate every single one you & I can't wait for 2016, it's going to be LIT, fam!
