A Day at the Park (Skatepark That Is)

When I was a kid, I did all the things. Skateboarding, surfing, and BMX freestyle. Until surfing totally consumed me, I hung out with my buddy Jerry Broderick and road street style BMX.

We planned one of my Family Photojournalism photography session to get a slice of life and document their life together.

WPPI – Annual Vegas Shoot 2013

I just got back from my third year in a row at WPPI, (the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International). Each year a bunch of  photographers get together and congregate in Sin City to attempt to learn things. Mostly what happens is it turns into partying and a little bit of photography happens, and if we can […]
