So This is What Working at Zappos is Like?

These boots were made for walking! … I lied. These booties are super uncomfortable with no tread; don’t buy them! But they do look pretty in the photos, right? Today I had a little insight into what it may be like to work on the photography production team at Zappos. In order to practice lighting…

Light Me Up

I got a new tattoo this week! Of course, I would pick nothing other than this zen octopus to represent my calm and mysterious spirit. For all of you who are curious if it hurt or not, it was pretty painless to be honest. I’ll tell you my little secret, Photoshop. 😉 Did I get…

Giving Thanks

Recently I have been practicing gratitude in everyday life. Research has shown if you keep a gratitude journal for 30 days, you can increase your happiness by 25%. A lot of the time we are thinking about the things and opportunities that are lacking in our lives instead of appreciating all of our blessings. Practicing…

Mirrorless Cameras In Mount Auburn Cemetery

Having analysis paralysis for the past year, I have put off even buying a camera. I hadn’t owned a DSLR before and there were too many options. Nikon or Canon, different models at different price points for different level of users. Oh my god, my brain was spinning. Then asking a fellow photographer, he asked…
