Steeped in sweat, we balanced ourselves on the thick, winding steel of the train tracks. The heat was sweltering, and it felt as if the very marrow of our bones was melting. Missteps were met with the dull crunch of gravel against rubber, and we could barely hear our own voices over the summer symphony of cicadas and mosquitos.

I'm looking to do more than just walk up Hull Street and take pictures. I want to tell you story about it...
Sunday January 17th, the Crenius agency began hosting their creative nights. The event was free and open to all creatives. The public was invited to come create, network, learn, teach, brainstorm, plan events, search for critique, or just come to hang out. If you walked into the homey apartment, you were able to see photographers, painters, videographers displaying videos from their blogs and music aficionados sharing their personal libraries amongst other elements. It was a very open environment. The host provided drinks, food and some artistic materials such as canvasses. The creative energy was undoubtedly contagious. The Crenius agency will be announcing their next creative networking night soon!

You need to remember to be patient when working with film. You only get once chance so take your time and relax.
It was a gloomy Saturday morning in December, the perfect weather for a funeral.
A light drizzle of rain misted from the gravel gray clouds above.
Firemen stood amongst two poorly parked firetrucks on the street corner.
This was the opening scene to my day.

Spent most of the day inside scanning film and needed to leave the house. My friend Angel stopped by and we went on a walk in Cary Town.
When I first started this project I wanted to capture people in their own homes. The couches they relaxed on, the kitchens they cooked in...all things that make a person more familiar, more human. The details of a home reflects the personality of its owner. And that's what I was aiming to capture. I wanted the candid intimacy of a person in their home written to film.
As with anything worth doing, this project was no easy task, and modifications had to be made. While I still firmly believe in the intimacy of the home, some subjects had to be shot elsewhere. But personality shines regardless, and each portrait shows some degree of that.
Experience is the best teacher in life. You have to capitalize on your mistakes and understand what works for you.
Now that it's dark when I get home I'm taking advantage of the sun any chance I can get. Recently was on my lunch break and had some extra time. So I decided to snap a few shots of my neighborhood.
This was my first time meeting Khadija and the third time I climbing on top of a train. A kangaroo cannot walk backwards. A plant will not grow if you microwave the water before pouring on the plant.

I sat down on the curb about to enjoy my turkey leg when I noticed something, everything was yellow! A man wearing a yellow shirt sitting on the edge of a yellow truck which was parked in front of a yellow wall. I didn’t even notice the yellow two-way traffic line in the foreground until later. is this real? I asked people walking by “DO YOU SEE THIS!?”. They all looked at me like I was crazy. Before the moment passed I pulled out my cellphone and took this picture.
During this trip to Montreal I challenged myself to take photos of people and not show their face. I Wanted to take photos of strangers in a similar style if I were to have my photo taken.
I started out shooting film and was anxious to see the shots I was taking. Sadly I left the darkroom kit state side and would have to wait to see how my film photos turned out.
This No Face challenge I gave myself was something new that I've never done before. Growing your skills and knowledge through challenges all while having fun, best way to learn.
