I am FINALLY happy to announce that my new website is LIVE! I can’t even begin to tell you what a labor of love it has been over the last few weeks…months…yeah, it’s been a process If you follow me on Instagram you may know that I was planning on launching last week. That was until I decided I needed to agonize over the final edit for another week. In all seriousness though, after getting some heartfelt, insightful advice from someone I really trust in the industry, I decided to rethink my edit.
Ultimately we decided that my best work…the work with the most heart and most representative of who I am as a photographer was not being prioritized. You’ll definitely find some old favorites throughout the new site, but you’ll also see a lot of never-before-seen work including several documentary projects that I am extremely proud of. You can find some of that work in the new “Stories” section.
Anyway, rather than explain every nook and cranny of the new site, I’ll let you go and explore it for yourself. Thanks in advance for looking and I hope you enjoy it.
Earlier this year I was contacted by SHAPE magazine to create some images for their monthly feature called “Movers & Shapers.”
Every month they cover an inspirational athlete and for their April 2016 issue they decided to profile Baltimore’s Adrienne Lofton. Adrienne is the Senior Vice President of Global Brand Marketing for Under Armour. We wanted to capture her during one of her boxing workouts with her personal trainer. The location they had picked out was down in “The Pit” over at Under Armour’s global headquarters, conveniently enough, right down the street from my house.
Adrienne is not your typical “executive.” She was warm and inviting when we met and she had an incredible energy about her. When she put on her boxing gloves and started hitting the pads she turned into a total badass! What I loved the most about shooting with her was that she was focused on keeping perfect form and not doing something fake just to make a picture. I didn’t have a lot of time with her, so we focused on the motions that we knew would work best and grinded it out.
Here is the image that ran in the magazine…also one of my favorites!
