Picture 2

I have a whole new website coming, i'm guessing sometime soon. It'll finally give the ability to update it more often, have more and larger pictures to view, so i'm stoked to get it finished.

I've been extremely busy with shoots the past week, diana has finally come home from her family in buenos aires, and i leave in exactly one week for california.

Plans for the next week include a shoot with Take Cover on thursday, and also two more senior photo sessions. Sadly I will not be shooting The Morning Of tomorrow because they experienced some van troubles during tour, so that shoot will hopefully be rescheduled for sometime this fall. Some days will be filled with part time work at Apple, and to top it all off A Day To Remember on Saturday and Warped Tour on Sunday.

photos soon to follow...

I've been really busy lately, especially with work at Apple and the whole iPhone launch. I've managed to have found time to finish pictures from a wedding back in june. I've also been hard at work on scheduling graduation photos, finishing pictures for Sing It Loud's music video release next week, and so many other things on top of that. I have 5 graduation shoots next week, then Diana is home finally, and only one week later and I'll be in California until the end of August.

Somewhere in there and after I'll find time to edit, get ready for school, shoot a couple bands, hangout with my family and girlfriend, work, and possibly sleep.

I'm still working on getting a new layout for my website, and hope to have a new one up around October. I'll be focusing on simplifying the layout, making it easier to update, and adding more content.

I had the house to myself for two weeks while Sam was on tour and Caleb was working at home. but for the next couple days I will be spending time back home with my mom and sisters, as well as visiting my grandparents and sleeping.

2008 just keeps on flying by.

spending some time with my friend Max in his apartment. Get Young is parting ways.

I went to my first PUG meeting tonight over in Edina after work, and it was great to meet a ton of older photographers from the area, especially Spencer Combs. We knew of each other, but had never met, and it was a great time getting to know each other, geeking out on camera hardware, etc. I'm stoked because we're going to go do some shoots together soon.

iPhone 3G launch friday at 8am, at least i'm not working. I'm really going to crack down on my work and finish all of it before next week. nice that I got my car fixed so I can go to the few places that buses won't.

I leave for California in less than a month...now if only I could figure out a way to bring my macpro with...

from the past









Put up some missing pictures from early spring. Pictures of my friend JJ and hometown New Prague, The Devil Wears Prada, and my friends in Get Young.

Still missing Diana more than anything, and only 2.5 weeks left.

1/2 done










So much has been happening since I got home from Germany. I'm currently finishing up proofs for a wedding and getting ready for seniors that scheduled sessions this summer. I've posted very little lately, but the above images are from the past few weeks; Panic At The Disco, Tony from Get Young and his legs, Diana, and Sing It Loud.

News: My friend Tony is leaving Get Young in April for something new in Colorado. Huge bummer because all those guys are my best friends, and they are one of the most solid bands in Minnesota. We'll see what the future brings.

It has been one week since Diana has been gone, and it's already really hard without her. She'll be back in 3.5 weeks....what am I going to do? I miss her so much already.

On Saturday Sing It Loud recorded their first video for "No one Can Touch Us," hosted by Epitaph and Produced by Justin Pierre. I took some 500 images for the event, and was at Justin's parent's house for about 12 hours. It was a lot of fun and I met a ton of really cool people as well as seeing some good friends.

I'm currently working on a new website, getting ready to leave for California for a month in August, starting a new project with some really cool people from work in Minneapolis relating to fashion, and preparing for school (already?). Two months sure seems pretty little now that i'm looking at it.
