After some success with our first film swap, Danny and I are back at it with another! This time around I wanted to keep it a bit more focused and decided to shoot a full roll of the best flowers that Bucks County had to offer. With simple instructions to shoot some classic British autos over top of my flowers, I shipped the roll off to Danny in Yorkshire to see what he could see. I could not be happier with the results and am already looking forward to our next swap!
I could not be more excited to have my series Interstellar Exploration, shot on Lomochrome Purple, up on The Field. Having my photographs and words along side those of some truly bad ass adventurers is incredible. Head over to The Field to read more about how I found myself in Iceland and the inspiration behind the photos!
Having followed Dylan from Now Developing for some time, I was stoked to have the opportunity to share a 10 song playlist of the music I've been shooting to for his Shutter Sounds series. The mix is mostly jazzy hip-hop with some pop influence sprinkled throughout for good measure . The cover is a Chevy Nova wagon I stumbled upon somewhere in Philadelphia that felt like it really embodied the sounds.
Shutter Sounds is a monthly, ten-song music playlist based upon my most-played music of the previous month. These monthly compilations are not limited or constrained to any theme or genre. They are simply a selection of songs that I chose from my most played artists of the month for the readers to enjoy while shooting, spending time in the darkroom, or want to listen to something new.

I have found there is a special kind of silence that can only be heard during the first real snow of the year.

I have both driven and ridden my bike over the Indian River Inlet bridge many times since they rebuilt it in 2012. Every time I cross at night, I am completely blown away by how beautiful it is. On my last visit I had my tripod and the rest of my inaugural roll of Cinestill 800 from the The York County Fair.
Fun Fact: Halation, according to the Google, is the spreading of light beyond its proper boundaries to form a fog around the edges of a bright image in a photograph or on a television screen. It is also the primary reason that I have fallen in love with so many Cinestill 800 photos. The halation, especially of red light, is absolutely incredible and really makes it feel straight out of an old movie.
A few months ago during my PHL -> NYC Shop Visit Extravaganza! I finally picked up a roll of Cinestill 800, a tungsten motion picture film that was adapted for still photography. For my first go at it, I brought a tripod along to the York County Fair.
There are few things I cherish more than cruising Upper Bucks County in late October and it was great to share it with my good buddy Dan. I've slowly started bringing a little Olympus Stylus with me and was experimenting with shooting position and proximity. This ride also included incredible baked oatmeal and coffee from one of my all time favorite spots.
I found some good people on a sunny day in the middle of a field. They offered me beer and love and only asked for the same in return. A fair trade I would say.
Finally! The second installment of From Where I Ride is here. This time I lugged my trusty K1000 around good ole Bucks County! Many of these roads are amongst my favorites and although I ride them with some frequency, there is always something new to see. From a hungry Tyrannosaurus rex to a flock of butterflies, you never quite know what you're going to run into. With a few steeper climbs than my average ride, this one really got that blood pumpin'!
