A cause for celebration

I’ve been living and shooting skateboarding culture for a long time. Some aspects of the culture are really difficult to figure out how to communicate… That is not true of the partying. The amount of love and affection that comes out when a large group of skateboarders get together for one reason or another borders on seriously homo-erotic, but is really just a level of comfort that is amazing and special. These images are from two such get-togethers. The first was in the Outer Banks for James and Beth Tupper’s wedding and the other was Eric Hunt’s birthday bro-down in a cabin in Lake Lure. Both were nights to remember.

Year of the Portrait

I began this year with lofty goals and full of ambition. In early January as I was revamping my portfolio site, it occurred to me that I wanted to transition the majority of my attention to portrait work. A good friend let me use the back of their studio and I started spending hours back there experimenting with light. I got a few exciting assignments this year, learned a ton, and had some awesome adventures. I feel like I’ve built myself a launch pad, and this year I want to see where it can take me.
Enjoy this collection of some of my favorite images, memories and moments from 2013.
