Pretty excited to see a handful of my Images in the August 2015 issue of Food & Wine
It's really exciting to be able to get to work on stories that get you excited. I really like meat, so it was awesome to get to be able shoot at The Meat Hook in Brooklyn for a pre-memorial day story for Bon Appetit. Here's some behind the scenes images from behind the counter at a pretty hip butcher.
I had the chance to follow around Aaron and James of Carnal as they gathered they're ingredients, and prepped for the Spring Street Social Society Secret Supper. We visited some really amazing places that I can't wait to get back to on my own time like SOS Chef in Manhattan as well as Greenpoint's Fish & Lobster Co.
Its been a long time coming, but there's finally enough snowpack melted off to get on some water. I stopped fishing after a while and just shot. Was really stoked to get My Pal John, mid hook-up and actually got a neat shot of the fish breaching.
I made it to February 10th this year. February 10th, 2015 is the day that I snapped, and spent the better part of my day regretting being me, and apologizing to my wife and kids for being the grumpiest person ever. I'm thankful for Jesus and Grace and Forgiveness, because without them, I'd be in even worse off shape than I am.
If you're like me and the dark, and the cold, and the snow days break you down, there's probably someone you need to apologize to. And if it hasn't happened yet, here's some iPhone and desktop wallpapers to help remind you that when you do snap, you should say sorry. Don't forget, March 21st is fast approaching. We'll get there together.
For a long time now, I have loved Topo Designs and the bags they make. It was a pleasure to get to work with Jedd and his team to be able to provide them with some images for their lookbook and website usage. Its also nice to be able to get to showcase what the North East has to offer, even when working with companies based in the Rocky Mountains.
One of my favorite places to be on is the border of New Jersey and New York state. There's something that seems like such an oasis in the middle of all the craziness that comes along with being in the suburbs of the biggest city in the whole world. Even in the winter, or maybe especially in the winter, I just need to get outside.
I don't know if I'd say Cory is my guide exactly. He is my friend, and he knows a lot more about fishing than me.
