I’ll hopefully be doing a more formalized write-up about the newest project, “Brilliant”. that I’ve post on my site.
It was something that personally meant a lot to me to go back to that place. Brilliant was really where I first started learning to tell stories with a camera. It took even longer for me to let the themes and ideas in the project emerge from the photos, but I feel good about them.
It’s not often that I’ll spend the better part of an entire day running through the archives of a single blog, but sometimes it’s okay to slow down. Sometimes it’s okay to read the whole damn post rather skimming. Sometimes it’s okay not to scroll all the way down the dashboard or twitter feed. Sometimes it’s better to take what’s in front of you and actually invest. Read, Think, Decide, Invest. Prosper.
College is done so I really have no excuse not to keep up with this thing anymore. I really wish the camera phone on my iPhone wasn’t broken or I could just upload crappy instagrams every few days and feel good about keeping up a “presence” or something. Alas…
SO MUCH STUFF IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. Here’s a recap…
Marcus and I are finishing up with the Shaq PSA right now, but it won’t be released until the fall.
In the next month and half I’ll be in Austin, Woodstock, Brooklyn, Boston (maybe), and LA. I’ll also be broke, but whatever.
We’re shooting new episodes of Buyer’s Remorse next month, trying to get it ready for the NYTVF
I’ve got a wedding and several other small shoots in the next two weeks and also some paintings to finish.
Marcus and I are also scheming on a spec commercial with a big name boxer. That should be happening soon.
Last, but definitely not least, I got into Phoot Camp. This is seriously a dream come true, and I mean that in a very literal way. I’ve had actual dreams about how incredible it would be to meet and shoot with all these talented folks. Shhh…don’t tell anyone how severely under qualified I am. I can’t wait until they release the full roster of self-portraits / essays.
After all of that stuff winds down around the end of June, it’s time to put on the big boy pants. Marcus and I will figure where, when, and how we want to live (without, ya know, dying) for the next phase of our lives. I’m really excited, but there’s a lot of uncertainty up ahead. Should be a fun time…
