Punk Rock Hip Hop

Tonight I got a chance to do a portrait for a friend who is trying to get started as a rapper. An unconventional rapper but a pretty good one.

Rusty Brooks keeps the punk rock attitude alive with his rhymes. Brooks currently lives and works in Pikeville, Ky. while he strives to make it in the hip-hop game.

Punk Traveler

I was finally feeling better today until a sting of bad luck that resulted in missing a chance to do a portrait changed that. Then I got the chance to shoot this picture. I am happy again.

Writer, traveler and punk rocker Travis Jhue has been in and out of cities and small towns across America. Jhue has traveled by many modes of transportation from hopping trains to getting rides. In Fall of 2009 he returned home for a while just to move again from Pikeville, Ky. to Lexington, Ky. for now.

I am thankful for...

Thanksgiving break I have been spending a lot of time with my family. I have been thinking about how important family is in a persons life. So, I am thankful for family.

First I went to my grandparents on my Mom's side.

Then I went to my Great Grandma's house on my Dad's side of the family.

Earlier in the week I spent some time at my Brother's house this is my niece.

some updates

Jonathan Strouth is the only person I know that is going to elope and hire a photographer. I was sworn to secrecy until the wedding was over. Now here are a couple of my favorite frames from the wedding.

For my Lighting class I had to do a portrait of a musician this time.

Steven Page was inspired by old timey music and keeps that alive in his music. Page plays frequently at Greener Grounds in Bowling Green, Ky.

I also had a thirsty thursday assignment for the yearbook.
