The journey a soul must take when its body has failed.

The other day, I went out alone and took some self-portraits. Since I've been in California, I've had less time to myself than I previously had -- not something I am complaining about at all, but there's something I miss about going out every now and then on my own and being alone with my camera. It brings back the nostalgia of when I started and opens my mind up and allows me to create without limits.

 

To get into the character of an exhausted man with nothing left to give, both physically and emotionally, I jogged up and down this path several times, did jumping jacks, and push ups. (Let's not talk about the looks I got from passing bikers). I think it is important to submerge yourself into the character when acting as the subject of the photo.

 

Also, I am honored to be a part of the incredible [FRAMED] series this season. I traveled out to their studio in Idaho this past May to film with the crew (who were absolutely awesome and so welcoming). My episode went up today, and you can view it by clicking the following link:

You must then create an account on FramedNetwork.com. It is super easy and takes just moments, and you'll be able to watch a video interview and photo shoot. I want to apologize in advance for how incredibly awkward and nervous I am in the interview. But whatever, yolo. ;D
