Photography, Adventures, Good Times and Some Art

I recently started working on a new series of work that I’m calling Self Reflective. This series deals with more inner feelings through self-portraits. The work depicts the side of life that isn’t seen or ever talked about, and shows that not every thing in life is alright.

Thank you so much! Yeah if you have any questions or anything, I’m down to give my inside photo secrets! 

Multi-Perspective Circle Painting

I made a new style to my circle paintings. This one I made it to where if you look at it in certain directions you will only see a black canvas and when you move to a different side you will see the circles in it.

Valley of Fire State Park

I took a trip over to the Valley of Fire park with my good adventure buddy Jaimee. We did a bunch of different hikes, but for the most part just had a chill day.

Burnt Frame
I sometimes forget if I load a fresh roll of film into my cameras a lot of times and surprisingly end up getting cool shots like this that are almost wiped out of existence because of my forgetfulness.

Kodak 160vc 120 film

I was scanning a bunch of negatives from this summer and this one lined up wrong with the scanning optics and came out all shifted in color. I really loved the whole effect it gave my photo even more than the regular shot. I might see if I can replicate this awesome effect.
