My trip to Philly was awesome. Me and the crew (Don and Arron) jumped in our rented SUV at 4am and made our way from Apex, NC to Philly. Yes it would have been faster and easier to fly, but there is still something cool about getting in the car with a group of friends and enjoying the ride. We had a packed shoot schedule that included a catalog studio shoot, golf and tennis lifestyle stills and three lifestyle videos. We ate great food, laughed so hard it made one of us spit beer all over Don (and it was not me), spent time with a killer client and crew and walk the amazing streets of Philly to see and experience as much as we could. Here are a few images from the trip. I will post some of the work as soon as it is ready for public consumption.
Hello From San DIego

Let me start by saying I LOVE California! If I was held at gun point and had to choice what part of California I love the most I would have to pick Northern California, but I am growing very fond of the San Diego area. I love the weather, locations (pure magic), the light, food and overall vibe of the area. I was in town to shoot some film pieces for PaddleFit and spend some quality time with some good friends. The trip was a blast and I am already planning my next trip back. I will forever love California!

One of my favorite things to do is camping. It is something I don't do as much since I left Northern California, but it is something I dream about everyday. There is something about being in the great outdoors that is good for my soul. My good friends Don and Arron and I decided it was time to stop talking and start doing, so we hopped in the car and headed to the mountains of NC. We ate S'mores, climbed around Grand Father Mountain, drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we visited small towns, told stories at the campfire and under the stars and we saw a lot of things and places that inspired us. We had a ton of fun and all we could talk about on the way home was how we can't wait to get back, and for me, it can't be soon enough.

Had a really fun trip to Myrtle Beach, SC this weekend. My Grandparents were visiting my aunt and uncle in SC and we decided to hitch a ride with my parents and head down. My Dad loves taking the backroads over the super highways and that adds a lot of charm and character to the trip. We saw some cool towns, interesting people and some beautiful landscape. I am inspired to take a turn here and there to see the less explored parts of my world. Here are a few images from the trip, but if you want to see the full set head over to https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.304356939651614.76911.271318822955426&type=1

The second in a series of videos called "Inspired By". In this series we will take a brand and with the help of friends and like minded people create work with little to no budget. It is an exercise of having fun and making work. First up is a quick hitting fitness spot with a run time of 30 seconds. We had crazy weather, a bunch of curious on lookers to contented with and a bad cut to one of the models big toe (ouch), but all in all we had a fun time shooting and learning.

I am super excited to finally share my new site and brand. The guys at Encounter Creative (Arron is a rock star) did a killer job building the site and putting up with me. I will be back filling the blog with some recent behind the scenes stuff, past projects and will share all of my travels and shoots here first. I really appreciate all of the love and support that my family, friends and clients have all given me over the years and I am so looking forward to the path ahead. Enjoy the site, leave comments, share it with your friends (especially if they are Art Directors or Brand Managers) and check back often. It's going to be a wild ride and I plan to share every minute of it (well at least most of it)!

Well shoot camp was a week I won't soon forget. It was filled with challenges, laughter, long nights and early mornings. We ate more donuts and tacos than any of us would like to admit, but along the way we created some work that we are very proud of. Shoot Camps are all about bringing creatives together to make stuff, learn stuff and have a great time doing it. Im looking forward to doing more of these, so if you are interested in joining a camp hit me up!

Had an awesome time at the 2011 Battle of the Paddle. It is by far the largest Stand Up Paddle (SUP) race of the year and it was so much fun to experience it for the first time with an awesome group of people. I tagged along with Brody Welte of Stand Up Fitness and Jeff and his crew from YOLO Boards. Some of the highlights of the trip were the amazing cookies at the hotel, the southern California vibe, Brody making a helmet out of a watermelon, enjoying the tastiest blueberry pancakes I have ever had with two amazing people (April and Kevin "The Golden Boy" Cook), Jeff's magical desalted nuts (a story for another day), Pizza Port with YOLO and the Trout family, talking zombie strategy with Tanner (we have a solid plan), John and Ali Denney and all of the fun that comes with hanging out with them, talking creative what ifs with Jake, watching Madra watching her iPhone battery slowly die at the race, Bo Bridges crazy helicopter camera rig (I need one of those), the race experience in general was crazy and inspiring, seeing $100K+ cars being sold in a gas station parking lot, the dinners, the drives, the people and so much more. It was awesome and we can't wait for next year!
