  1. 14k | A Fashion Film and Behind The Scenes with Alley Calkins

    04 Aug 2015

    I’m really excited to share a string of collaborations I’ve been working on this past month. My friend Alley Calkins hit me up and asked if I wanted to film her in action. I’ve always wanted to work with her so I jumped on the opportunity. We shot at Point…


  2. Why I Share My Camera Techniques. Deep Down, I Don’t Think You Actually Want IT That Bad. ( But I Hope You Prove Me Wrong )

    06 Jul 2015

    Today I met with a Seattle photographer who I have a ton of respect for. She’s a beast. We met over coffee, the exchange being an iced latte for SLR video settings and a full-access pass to TheAfterHour video starter pack. It’s a real thing. Some people would say I’m…


  3. Creative Burnout, Rihanna, and What I Do Every Day.

    29 Jun 2015

    A quick note about creative balance. Lately I’ve found myself out of rhythm and heavily overwhelmed with work. I’ve revisited my college-esque all-nighter- food scattered - sporadic sleep routine and I’m sitting here wondering how the hell I got here. The movie version of my life shows me in meetings, shooting…


  4. [ VIDEO ] LA Photoshoots | Behind The Scenes & Trip VLOG

    21 Jun 2015

    Last week my friends and I flew down to LA for a collab with City Approval. They did their media circuit and performed at The Mint LA while I drank tequila and ran around with my camera.  Here’s a behind the scenes video and some photos of our adventures out in LA. [720 HD] …


  5. How I Built My Clientele and Why I Believe in Free Work

    26 May 2015

    Last week I received this question in my inbox: This is a great question. The journey from hobbyist to sort of professional to full business is tricky to navigate. Artists create because it feels good. Running a business exists on the other end of the spectrum. It’s a weird paradox.…


  6. Behind the Scenes | “Bring Your A-Game”: A Social Media Campaign

    06 May 2015

    Back in January, I was asked by the ladies of Alpha Phi to shoot a promo video for their spring philanthropy, “Phifa,” a week-long soccer tournament that raises money for women’s heart health and cardiac care. I didn’t make them a video. Here’s what we did instead, and why it…


  7. A Beautiful Struggle

    06 May 2015

    A decade earlier, a century earlier, a millennium earlier, someone just like you stood right where you are and felt a very similar thing, struggling with the very same thoughts. They had no idea that you would exist, but you know that they did. And a century from now, someone…


  8. [PHOTO] How I Lit It | Fitness Shoot

    06 May 2015

    I thought I’d switch it up and post a photo related blog post. When I started getting into photography in my cramped basement single back in college, behind the scenes blogs and how-to videos were the biggest tools that I utilized in teaching myself how to light and strobe. So…

  10. I’m Back: Self Complexity and Living your Art

    18 Jun 2014

    It’s been over a year since my last blog post. To my After Hour Faithfuls I say these words, “I’m back.” But not in some vainglorious, prodigal son-esque, self proclaimed “return” to the blog world type of way; although the idea of redemption does play a role. Self redemption, at…
