Life in Arizona

So….it’s been 6 years since I’ve loaded any pictures on this photography website. Here are a few from Lockett Meadow. This hike happened October 2014.

Product Photography

These are just a few examples of some product photography that I did for work. I really enjoyed finding new angles and proper lighting to highlight each machine.

Design

School was extremely difficult for me. They wouldn’t let me major and minor in photography so I had to find another outlet. I’ve always had this unspoken war going on between myself and technology. So when I decided to try my hand at graphic design as a minor, you can imagine that it wasn’t a smooth path. Learning the computer was the hardest thing I had to do. And believe me, I fought it kicking and screaming the entire way. But after I got done with my classes I learned something about myself: 1) I can learn something as difficult as technology! That in and of itself is a huge feat 2) I enjoy more creative outlets than just photography. If a bride wants a save the date I can provide it for her, if a mom wants a hand made book done of her family portraits she had made I can design the lay out and create the book (all by hand of course). I opened my mind and in doing so I forced myself to learn new things that I never would have learned other wise.

Spain

My first time to visit Europe was the summer of 2008. It was for a study abroad course with South Alabama. I spend two glorious weeks in Spain and experienced so much! The architecture, the food….it was perfect. I took over 35 rolls of film and took almost 800 digital pictures. Clearly I loved my surroundings 🙂 We started in the city of Toledo just outside of Madrid. There I was woken up every morning by an ancient cathedral ringing its bells, I would promptly get dressed and strap three cameras around my neck and head out into the city. I am a foodie as well as being into art. I totally appreciate other cultures foods and customs. Spain made me not want to come back home! my favorite restaurant was just around the corner from the hotel and I’d eat there and look through my pictures and feel like I was living in paradise. Two weeks was just not enough time. I could have spent years in Spain and not seen everything I wanted to. From the Alahambra to downtown Madrid, I fell in love and didn’t want my experience to end.

Books

My second favorite class was a bookmaking class. I’ve come to realize that I am a traditional artist. What that means is I appreciate when an artist hand does anything because that makes it a one of a kind. It’s totally unique! I’ve continued with bookmaking doing journals and photo albums, baby books, or even just a grocery book. I do it all. All of these books are unique and open to whatever you want to use them for! If you have something you want specific I can do special orders as well. Each book is hand crafted using handmade wrapping paper and filled with sketch paper. Most of the books have several hundred sheets in them for long time use.
