Ten years after Eyes of Tanzania

It has been ten years since I made that 42 hour trip to Tanzania. Where my mind was pushed to its limits, and my camera became part of my body.

I learned so much about the human spirit. I didn’t need anything but food and water, no more shiny things. A better understanding of what in life is needed and what our desires. Days and hours, where I met people and tried to capture their stories in the frame of pixels.

One of my goals was to process the photographs in a very limited fashion. A little sharping and white balancing, but nothing more.

The last few weeks I have decided to reimagine some of these images. As I did so, I wonder where some of these kids are now. I also, find a few of the photographs and have a new connection that missed the first time around.

Ten years have gone by fast. I am so thankful for the support of friends and the community during this project. It lives on.

 

 

TOAPP Music Camp Portraits

This year I was lucky enough to be a part of the Three of a Perfect Pair Band Camp with my son. This was a great event of music, meeting people and for me being able to photograph some amazing musicians.  Here are a few images from the week.

The next few images were shot with my Petzval lens.

 

 

 

Pathway to Fitness

I have been lucky enough to have found the crew at Crossfit Newton where I have been working out for the last few months. The owners and coaches are a wonderful group and the community has been fantastic.

As a start out on a new project, Artist and Athletes I have had this vision of an image that I have been wanting to take and it all came together yesterday with the great help of coach Barbra. Let me know what you think

Suffer, Excel, Repete

For the last few months, I have had the pleasure of working out with the crew at Crossfit Newton.

A great group of coaches and students, that I am looking forward to working with and learning from. The strength, dedication and work is amazing to watch.  The follow images are of Coach Matt who is prepping from a weight lifting comp next weekend.
