I am working on a short film with a few friends and planning a kickstarter project to fund it. We tried to go camping a few weeks ago to give it a go, but we were only able to do some tests. Right now I am working on a budget for the project and trying to consider all possible costs that are out of my own budget (which are most of costs).Read More
About two weeks ago I did my first photo shoot with a model, Natasha Laux. She was absolutely amazing and was so kind to agree to a test shoot with me!

I’m a little rusty on the book stitching, but I figure I’ll get better with a few more versions, maybe on some nice paper.

The Mother Goose Series (as seen here) was the second big series I sought to do in the beginning of 2011. I had 10 weeks to come up with the idea, plan the shoots, and shoot them. I’m not going to lie, it was 10 weeks of craziness. But in the end, I was ecstatic with what I had accomplished. How did I do it?Read More
