Need Inspiration?

I know my blog isn't as cool as so many others. Maybe I just need to keep practicing.
There are 2 photographer's blogs that I check daily, sometimes more than daily. Their content is just so good. They love to share their thoughts and so I thought I would do the same.

You don't need to be a photographer to understand their blog post. They are more about living your life in a positive way and being the best you can be.

I'll give a little background on them so it will help you understand what kind of work they're doing.

Chase Jarvis - Action sports and Life Style, Seattle. I found Chase on YouTube first. I like to watch photo tech videos and he had some of the best by far. So I checked out his site and blog. Awesome work!! He shoots action sports (skiing, running, climbing, biking, ect...) and life style. He has some great pointers and view points on certain topics relative to the photography world. But what I really like about him is that he shares and motivates people to do great work.

Zack Arias - Editorial Music Photographer, Atlanta. I kind of just stumbled on him. I was reading another photographers blog, Cole Barash (snowboard photog) and he had a post about going all film again for a while. Someone had made a commit about that post with a link to a very emotional and inpiraring video that Zack Arias did for Scott Kelby's blog. The last few of his post are just what I need right now. You must watch the Dope, Soap & Hope video.

There's a little back story to it, just read the post before. It doesn't matter what you do, watch this and it will give a bright light to your dark path.

Tower Skate Park

So I finally got a night shoot with the Westside boys. And, of course, they killed it! Those guys break them selves up for me. Another shoot Thursday night at a sick park. Can't wait.
Thanks homies!!!!

My Cuz

My cousin, Laney, came up to pick up my sister to take her down to Ruidoso. While she was up and before she moves to Durango to go to school, I made her get in front of the camera. And I'm so glad I did! She can play that guitar so good, I just know we'll all be hearing her on cd soon.

Hell Track

I feel very lucky. I was hired to do a personal shoot with Kenth Fallen. Kenth is #1 in the nation in BMX. I don't follow the BMX world, but I know all about Rad (the 80's BMX movie). One of the most fun shoots I've done for sure. Thanks for going BIG Kenth!!
