Jerome, Arizona Select Photos 2018

As if going to NYC, Miami, Key West, and Providenciales wasn’t enough, I spontaneously took one final bonus road trip north to the wonderful little town of Jerome, Arizona. Even after all the countries I’ve been to, sometimes I have more fun on a solo road trip somewhere in Arizona, walking around, taking photos, eating, and just relaxing to some music in a warm hotel room.

Key West 2018 Select Photos

I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when I was told that the trip to Key West was happening. Is it just like Miami? Is it like all those songs you hear that describe laid back vibes with margaritas and beaches? Everything was new but it also felt so familiar. Continue reading

The October Whirlwind

It’s been a while hasn’t it? This is just a quick update. The short trips to Tucson and Las Vegas earlier this year were fun but this summer was spent saving money and just keeping my head down to work. During that time, I tried to practice getting better at my photography and Photoshop. Working with models and exploring the greater Phoenix area hunting for interesting locations. Practice at home to be better around the world. Summer lasts longer here in Phoenix but it was a quiet season until October 13th to the 23rd. It felt like I was never still. Not even when I tried to sleep. Even now, it’s been hard to get back into the swing of things but here we go. Continue reading

Las Vegas 2018 Select Photos

It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I’ve been, if I have the time, and I’m invited to go to Las Vegas, I go. Especially when it’s just a 45 minute flight and I’ll have someone with me to photograph and video. This time I stayed at The Aria and had a Strip view room. The best Las Vegas hotel room I’ve stayed in to date.  Continue reading
