India will get in da ya

I just got back from 2 months of backpacking in India.
It was indescribable.
The sights… the insight… It was perfectly difficult.
Everyday I feel grateful.
This trip OPENED MY EYES… and I think you will be able to see that in my images.

I have about 900 hours left of going through images and editing but am anxious to share my images so I will post a couple and there will be many more images to follow.

Chase Jarvis

Here are some sweet pics by the always inspiring Chase Jarvis. Something I love about this guy’s work is the range. He can do raw portraits, dancers, crazy snowboarding jumps and beautiful landscapes to name a few… One of my favorite sections on his website is his iphone photos. There are just certain artists whose eye I just love, when you have that creative eye, it’s almost impossible to take a bad picture.
Check out his website and blog and  feel the inspiration.

Alex Kisilevich

So I just got an email back from a competition I entered showing who got shortlisted… although I was not one of them I still got a bit of a prize… Some inspiration. On the shortlist was Alex Kisilevich, York University, so I decided to check out his website and work. This guy is insanely good. The concepts are strong and executed beautifully. I was in aw.

Matt Barnes BLOG kicks ass!


I’ve followed this guy’s work for a while and it’s obviously SICK!! If you haven’t seen it, check it out here www.thatsthespot.com.  What inspires me most is his BLOG… the pictures are so good but what I REALLY love are the videos. I love that they are uncensored because let’s face it… censored art SUCKS. Dicks, boobs, weed, blow it’s all there.  These videos make it look FUN. Don’t get me wrong, I can tell they work their asses off but I watch videos of behind the scenes photo shoots all the time and it’s always missing the element of FUN.  For someone just starting out in the industry and someone who loves photography as a fine art… this renews my interest in commercial photography and gives me some INSPIRATION and HOPE!

THANK YOU!!!!
