#Rockstars

19 Jul

I admit, I have a serious love affair with mohawks.  They’re not right for everyone, but I have to respect any person willing to try it.  After all, mohawks are symonymous (in some dictionary somewhere) with self-confidence, which is a good thing.  Right?

This is a silhouette of my friend Rick, bass player for the band Hearts & Thieves. HashtagRockstar.

Motivational Poster

20 Jun

I don’t know about you, but some days (read that as “most days”) I feel like I have a mountain of work to get through, but never enough free time to work on it.  I’m currently working on three “big things” (because business success is planning ahead!), editing photos from an event, planning another trip, planning my next two articles (for you, my friends!) and oh yeah…the rest of life.

In 2009, I swear I took the perfect motivational photo.  It’s of a rock climber in Colorado…on a very large rock….very high up in the air…without ropes. (EEEEEKKKK!!)

It’s silly, but without having ever met this guy, he schooled me. haha  I always say to myself, “If that guy can do it…”  So I buckle down, work harder, and keep pushing onward up my own, more symbolic mountain.

…Sometimes, I don’t.

Isn’t it interesting how much a little thing like color can drastically change an image?

Which one do you prefer?

The Hours We Keep

30 Mar

Is it a requirement that creatives keep weird hours?  I spent all night editing photos (and watching girly movies…multi-tasking!) of Sister Hazel, taken at a recent music festival.  (On a boat. To the Caribbean.  It was amazing.)

As I finished, and began posting to various social media, I noticed another photographer-friend had also just put up a post.

Within minutes of putting up the images on Facebook, some of my musician-friends had already liked the photos. (Are we friends on Facebook?  If not, we should be!  Find me. =D)

The time? 2:27 AM EST.

Oh the hours we creatives keep!
