Rio Bravo Patio

I’m pretty excited about this picture for a couple reasons. This shot feels like a good 50/50 mix of my architecture work and personal work. It’s not a literal photograph, yet it describes this place so perfectly to me. And I just think in the crumbling brick and rotting wood is so cool looking. It’s not entirely the direction I want to go with my commercial work, but it’s getting there.

I’m also exited to post my first new Ides of May photo in this new blog magazine-ish format. Since the beginning of when I started blogging, I’ve struggled to find a balance between what I want to talk about or show here and what I want to put out there first. And so, I often wouldn’t post anything to radical or unrelated to shoots, tearsheets, and so forth. In other words, it was boring.

This format solves that problem. I can blog away personal photos, opinions, gear reviews, whatever,  as much as I want and then when I have a post I’m really excited about, I can make it Featured and it will show up on the blog home page.

Join me and watch this blog/website evolve. It’ll only get better with your feedback.



PS: In case you’re wondering what the hell “Ides of May” is: It was the name of my first photoblog ( So, all personal photographs will forever be categorized under “Ides of May”. Someday, I’ll do a book or something. Why “Ides of May”? It’s my birthday 🙂
