As a sort of “welcome back” for my website, I’d like to explain this daunting yet exciting project I’ve decided to embark on. It’s probably best to give some background so that you all get a better understanding of how I came to the point have arrived at.
After a long break because of work, college applications, and the laziness, I’m back.
During orientation last week at ECUAD, a keynote speaker spoke about signals and it made me think about my signal. In an age where getting information across is as easy as it is important and abundant, one needs to work extra hard to get there signal to be noticed.
That’s where I’ve been coming short.
I’ve said this before, but I’ve never meant it more than I do now. From this point on I’m going to be updating this blog, my website, and my flickr on a constant basis.
At least once a week you can expect a blog about college, photography, or art in general as it pertains to an aspiring artist and photographer in a modern world. Photography is an ever changing medium with venues like Flickr or blogs to share your work. Expect to see those venues used as much as I can in the next four years, so do check in from time to time.
Until next time folks, don’t be afraid to shoot people on the street.
They do not (often) bite back.
As a photographer and an artist, there’s nothing more calming than a simple photo shoot, and the processing of the images from that shoot. Like I’ve said earlier, I’ve neglected my 365 Faces project, and for a number of reasons.
The problem I think was that I set the bar too high for myself. I mean, one picture a day? Let’s be real here. What I want to do now is upload as much as I can, when I can, and at the very least not leave too large a gap between posts.
Let’s hope that doesn’t blow up in my face. But anyway, here’s the latest entry, and my ‘comeback’ to this project. Hope you like it!
I apologize. I’ve let work and just things in general get in the way of not only updating this blog, but my yearlong project as well. As the image suggest, I’ve brushed my 365 Faces project for the time being.
I completely intend to pick up where I left off, actually starting next month to create a visual diary of my last month in Manila, the last month of my gap year.
To begin with I have a backlog of photo shoot images, among other things, that I want to upload to Flickr. It’s good stuff, believe me this.
Later tonight (and by that I mean tomorrow morning) I’ll post updates to this blog, chronologically of course, with what I’ve been up to the past month and a half.
Until next time!

Media is changing so quickly these days. We’ve gone from print media newspapers, to online news articles, to not having to wait with RSS feeds. And with social networking, news travels a lot quicker than your bowels might after a morning breakfast burrito.
Enter OnSwipe. You’re gonna have to watch to see just how awesome this is.
Check this out interwebs, cause I sure as hell will integrate my website, youtube, vimeo, tumblr, and if it lets me, flickr to this! OnSwipe is bi-winning.
Cheers to my good buddy Jem for showing me this.
The one thing that I used to look forward to every year of High School (besides the dismissal bell) was the one night where I got to be a super hero, change into this persona that didn’t care if he threw his back doing what he does. A persona that was the complete opposite of my otherwise timid disposition. A persona ready to wield a mighty axe to do battle with. The battle?
Battle of the Bands.
Funny thing about work, is that it takes up a lot of time. As such, my 365 project has been cast aside in favor of an all work and no play mantra as of late. It’s not entirely the fault of work though, but the fault is my own as well. Priorities change completely in tandem with responsibilities change completely.
I will still continue on with this task though. I’m completely dedicated to eventually having 365 photos uploaded of different portraits documenting a year of my life… even if it literally takes 2 years to do.
Say tuned folks, cause I’m not going anywhere.
For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be a professional photographer. For as long as I can remember I’ve used one of my senses a lot more than others: the sense of sight.
This past week I’ve been delayed with this 365 Faces project, and with no reason to be. Ironically, the delay comes after days of having not much work to do, too much down time, and a crazy addiction to NBA 2k11.

It really does feel like a friday. No work tomorrow and a great song to take you into the weekend. Here’s “Resuscitate”, from...
“There are some things I may never know—
How you lost your mind,
and your wrists got bruised,
and you wanted better love,
