Doing What You Love

Help me continue doing what I love so that I can continue giving you what you love.


I am taking my work and photography on a trip around the world and I’m inviting everyone to come with me.  Help me bring home the best images, stories, and experiences with my camera over the next few months by investing in my photography, vision, and art.

In return, I will give you 2:1 on your investment toward anything I offer on photography:  Prints, Workshops, Portrait and Family Sessions, Tutorials.

This adventure is sparked by the coming of my son, Logan, into the world.  Above all, in this modern family that we are creating, I want to be an inspiration to him.  His parents are artists; successful artists must sell art to survive.  This trip’s purpose is to do just that.  Seek out exposure and reveal my work to as many eyes as possile while building a worldly portfolio.  To that end, I am speaking at the University of Iowa’s photography school on April 11th.  On April 25th I am showing work at Spectrum, a RAW art show at the Cutting Room in Manhattan, NY.  With your help I’ll be able to line up meetings and art shows in Dubai and bridge my trip from the Philippines to Cambodia and Vietnam before monsoon season begins.

Mahalo for your kokua.

Many thanks,

30 Awesome Days in Hawaii, Day 1

An artist has got to be careful never to really arrive at a place when he thinks he’s at somewhere. You always have to realize that you’re constantly in a state of becoming. As long as you can stay in that realm, you’ll sort of be all right. ~Bob Dylan
