New Work – Into The Woods

Like any dating profile with a decent amount of respect for themselves I too, besides red wine and sunsets, also enjoy wandering in the woods… Sometimes I bring a camera. Occasionally I even take a picture… or two. This is a collection of some of them.

Enjoy!

New Work – Unimpressed Kid

Here is a new piece I thought I would share. Please enjoy this conceptual portrait of a kid who is slightly unimpressed with his meal… frankly, I probably would have been as well. (At least I think it was the meal… it could also have been that his brother was sitting next door playing Game Boy in the studio lounge… Now – I’m saying Game Boy(it looked like one) not even knowing if thats still a thing? – But for the sake of kids nowadays I hope it is! I remember spending a summer (when I was a kid) doing gardening, painting and whatever else my parents could come up with for $2/hour to save up for one – but thats another story I suppose – I did finally end up with one though!)

And if you think he looks familiar… yet not. I might be because I’ve photographed his younger brother in the past, you can check him out HERE (if you forgot or just feel like it).
