Camp Photography

Last weekend I helped out as a photographer for the first year of my friends Pass the Torch Leadership Camp which feature trick riding clinics designed to pass his knowledge of the equestrian thrill event of trick and roman riding to the next generation.

While I am busy working on edits from the camp my contribution was working on the marketing angle so this is something he can do again year to year.

Reminiscing About Semester At Sea

Reminiscing About Semester At Sea

As a college student a dream of mine had been to study abroad. My challenge was selecting the where, which I struggled with long and hard until Semester at Sea came on my radar. It was a semester long program on a cruise ship traveling the world!

Yep, that’s right multiple countries!

My dream come true, and in Fall of 2012 I embarked on that travel adventure, I made many friends, learned a lot about myself and photography (I was a photographers assistant on-board!)

The Journey to Becoming Exposure One Studios

The Journey to Becoming Exposure One Studios

As a childly earliest memory is laying on my grandparents living room floor with orange shag carpet, is to late evening the tv plays cartoons as my parents and grandparents sit around the shiny wood dining room table cards in their hands, drinks to the side and the smell of my paps cigar smoke in the air.
