In the Middle of a Struggle and Loving Every Second

I wrote down a few thoughts on my current situation in life as a freelance photographer, and put it up on my tumblr. Consider it my optimism in the face of trouble.


“I’ve been making my way as a freelance photographer and videographer for almost two years now. And by that I mean, barely scraping by. But there is something refreshing and motivating about what I am in the middle of…”

Steven Ellison, the mastermind behind the genre-creating, movement-starting, crowd-moving moniker Flying Lotus (or FlyLo), has quite a few singles, EPs, compilations and mixes, all of which can be hard to keep track. However, his full-length albums now rest at a more manageable four.

His previous album, Cosmogramma, adopted strong influences from jazz and hip hop, and adopted them well. This time around, FlyLo has taken a more minimal approach where each song takes its time to build into a finely crafted track from start to finish.

The first six songs on Until The Quiet Comes, lovingly eases us into a Flying Lotus listening experience. With calming melodies mixed with hints of glitchy beats and splashes of delightful bass, I found myself lost in a wonderful combination of beautiful audio mixed together into a symphony of sound waves.

“Sultan’s Request” rocks us back into a bass-filled paradise, reminding us…

Hundreds gathered at Kiwanis Park in Tempe on Saturday, November 3rd for Amnesty International’s Tempe 2nd Annual Localpalooza — and all for one cause: human rights.

Amnesty International, according to its website, “is a global movement of more than three million supporters, members and activists in more than 150 countries and territories who campaign to end grave abuses of human rights.” And its Tempe chapter’s second annual Localpalooza not only doubled its attendance from last year’s Localpalooza, but, according to Scott Henderson, the Amnesty International Tempe (AIT) group coordinator, the event accomplished its ultimate goal of raising awareness.

“Whenever we get one, two, three, or maybe even 400 people coming to our event, the word is getting out!” Henderson says. “That’s great for our group, and great for Amnesty International, and great for the fight for human rights. We got many signatures on petitions and action letters. Every one of…

How To: Android Screen Shot

How to Take a Screen Shot with an Android Galaxy S

I’ve been trying to figure out how to take a screenshot on my Android Galaxy S phone for a while now. I found a number of “how to” guides online, but none of them worked for me.

I finally figured it out today so I wanted to share, just in case there are others having a hard time finding the answer.  (my phone is updated to Android 2.3 if that helps anyone)

To take a screenshot:

1. Hold down the “back” button. Which is the little curved arrow.

2. Press the power button (on the side of your phone).

A little white border will flash on the screen and some text will pop up saying that the screen was captured. In your files there should be a “ScreenCapture” folder with all of your screenshots.

I hope this helps some of you!

Photography as a Profession

I have been working my way into making a living through photography and videography for the past year and a half. I have just recently been able to create enough work flow to manage all of my finances and the plan is to be able to be financially stable through my work as a photographer and videographer only.

I have created a new page to outline my professional work, which you can view here:

Here’s to all of the new work that lay ahead!

Catching the Casino Del Sol Resort Hotel Expansion

What a beautiful hotel! Every direction I turned was something that made me want to set up my tripod and snap a few pictures!

As I dive deeper into the life of a photographer, I really enjoy photographing all sorts of different events. Stepping past thinking of only fun party/mixer events and into the world of new expansions and construction, I joined AZNow.Biz to have a look at the new hotel expansion at the Casino Del Sol.

See a few pictures, and read about my experience here:
