getting out
One of the themes of the last few weeks since Natalia made her appearance has been that we have been spending a lot of time indoors. It's good timing really from her standpoint as she can't go out, so she might as well be locked up for the coldest time of the year. I'm pleased she is showing herself to be considerate from such an e ...

a star is born
One of the reasons why I have been so quiet over the last few weeks is down to the arrival of our lovely baby daughter. Natalia Louise checked in bright and early on the 30th November weighing in at 6lbs 13ozs. It's been a fun holiday with her around. I have a new muse! Now maybe Charlotte and her mum will get a break...

catching up…
It's been a pretty intense month or so here with a lot of stuff going on between one thing and another. We've moved to North Carolina and been going through that whole process of getting settled in a new home and getting set up with doctors and hospitals and the like with the impending arrival of our baby daughter. As a result, I h ...

cents and sensibility
After receiving a lot of positive feedback and reviews from my clients, I have realised that it's perhaps time to increase my rates in line with the majority of photographers on the market. As such, if you would like to schedule a session, please do so as soon as possible to lock in the current pricing. Such perks as getting a full ...

butterflies and hurricanes
In order to make this title make sense, I am currently sipping a Hurricane whilst I upload these pics from the zoo the other day. This is obviously a fib, given that it is 9am on a Thursday, but go with me on this one. Anyway, this particular title is from one of my favourite Muse songs which concerns itself with chaos theory, with ...

day in/day out
It's been a while since I just went out just shooting random stuff, so after spending the morning working at home, I got to go out and spend some time at the Indianapolis Zoo. My main goal originally was to go and hang out with the butterflies. They have a great selection there, and they are always pretty keen to sit around and pos ...

quality time
Spending a few days with my wife Cristel's family. We get to share very little time with our loved ones, so we appreciate every minute we get. I miss my family and friends a lot. Hope to see you all soon... The Panama City Sound Machine greets its guest percussionist. Charlotte and her proud abuelita. Here's lo ...

spring at the ima
I went for a walk around the grounds of IMA this morning to scout out for a shoot this weekend. There was no one else around except the groundsmen (and a few robins). The sun shone for about 20 minutes before the clouds drew in. It was great to see the spring flowers out in full force. Finally, looks like the winter is on its way o ...
