This is where my personal projects are born, as well as behind the scenes perspectives of the photo shoots I've done.

Welcome to 2018

I have to first thank all of you for reading these posts, getting some books or prints and engaging in interesting conversations with me. It was a year that proved that one might actually be able eke out a living making art and finding the homes for these pieces that I often spend hours on. 

So what’s next?

There are a few ideas of how to create an online presence that will make YOU feel a part of these photo shoots and the creative process. The final photographs, after all, are going into your collections or at the very least, populating your newsfeed.

Here’s what’s coming in 2018:

+ A PHOTOGRAPHY SHOP will be available on my site and will include links to galleries featuring “The Vagabond Collection” as well as limited reproductions from The Saffron Scourge project, which is a ghostly body of work that tells the story of yellow fever victims from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. I've gotten a lot of requests for this. I thank you for your patience. This should be completed within the next few weeks.
+ A NEW BOOK is in the works, which will be released in 2018. I’m doing everything in my power to keep the costs low but the quality high. If you purchased a copy of Ghosts of New Amsterdam then you’ll be treated to some benefits as a result of your early support. 
+ I and a production crew are on track to finish my FILM DIRECTORIAL DEBUT of a short film called The Red Canvas, which is based on a story of the same title by xxx ZombieBoy xxx (a constant collaborator and a dear, dear friend). 
+ There will be more opportunities for you to directly affect the collections of photographs that I, and a production staff of talented people, will be releasing in the next twelve months. 

Without you or your support, there would be nothing to share so THANK YOU a million times over for helping a boy and a dream get by in this crazy world of art. I’m very excited and I hope that you are too. 

I wish you all a fruitful year and I send you a sincere wish that you achieve your dreams and goals in 2018.
