Kent, Ohio Photography

I've often heard creatives say that they must leave their communities to find inspiration. While travel is integral to developing as a person, it is nice to walk around our communities and find inspiration in the minutiae we pass over daily.

When I'm walking around Kent, I'm looking for random encounters. I'm looking to photograph something simple so that it may reveal its complexity. I'm looking for wabi sabi.

This is an ongoing series of things large and small that I photograph in and around Kent, Ohio.

Ray Flanagan

I recently had the opportunity to sit down for a portrait photography session with songwriter/guitarist Ray Flanagan. We captured some nice shots for use on his upcoming solo album, Passerby.

Portrait Photography & New Backdrop

I had some free time this weekend to paint my own backdrop. I bought a 4'x5' piece of canvas from Lowe's and used leftover housepaint. Here are the results.

And of course also on Facebook, LinkedIn and plenty of other platforms.
