A conceptual shoot highlighting Tygarts Valley Middle schoolers in West Virginia making video games rather than playing them, for Education Week.
An eerie bowl of fruit. Plus how I lit it.
Acting a fool… Jumping on a motel bed in West Virginia.
A scary portrait of Nick DiFabbio (aka ghostfreehood).
I recently realized that I when I listen to music I respond waaaayyy more to the mood a song creates than I do to its lyrics. I always hear how the vocals are sung and never hear what’s being said. Maybe that’s why I like metal? It didn’t take too long for me to understand [...]

Urban farmer (and my neighbor) Matt Fouse with his
Mychael Wright, a friend of mine, agreed to let me make a few lit portraits of him about a month ago. It was a few days after Hurricane Irene came through and his power was still out. So, I used a portable battery pack. Recently I’ve been trying to make as many
These are photos from a shoot held on the Bryn Mawr School campus in Baltimore, MD, Sunday, June 19, 2011 for The Collective’s “aLIVE” show at the Creative Alliance Fri Aug 26, 8pm. This shoot was a lotta fun and it went exactly how I like em’ to go… a little

Her husband Jeff and her best friend Lori celebrate Keri’s 30th birthday pool party at her brother Kyle and sister-in-law Christina’s house in Marietta, GA Sunday, July 31, 2011. Keri’s on the right, by the way. So… I decided it might be fun if I turned the day into
Instead of crashing on someone’s couch or …worse yet, a bathtub, for my 33rd birthday in Athens, GA, I decided to spring for a hotel room at the Holiday Inn Saturday, August 6, 2011. So, while I was waiting for Logan King and Melissa Holmes to get ready for dinner, I made some …uh, self [...]

In this post I’m showcasing the images that I think would easily be considered my “best” images from 2010. These are the images [...]
Grant and Marie are getting married! Believe it or not, but this was shot in a Gaithersburg, MD subdivision — not on a magical hillside. I really didn’t want to make the traditional “updated prom photo” pose, as my girlfriend Jess calls it. Of course I made the safe shots. …we also called them “grandparent” [...]
Let me first say that David Hobby is an SEO powerhouse! When he pimps me out my analytics look like a big mountain is stuck in the middle of a desert. So, after getting hit with well over 500 page views within an hour of @strobist ‘s tweet, a few reached out, asking for a post [...]
