A while ago I spent some time at Logan Landry's home in Nova Scotia. We surfed and traveled and I got to hang with some rad east coast fellas, as well his family. Here is a photo of Logan's Grandfather, Reginald, holding an antique gun in their barn. There was a small beam of light coming in through the stained glass window, so we propped a chair up on the 4ft. high pile of rickety stacked wood and took 35mm portraits of him and his grandson.
Not much was spoken on the ride over and even less when we were dropped off in the middle of town. Three of us had just gotten off a buss in a small town in Ecuador. We bumped into each other, trying not to be seen. Tired, warn down, and anxious, we paid ten bucks each for the second hotel we came across. It was over budget but we felt we wanted a secure environment for little first leg on the road.
I have a bunch of new photos up from my trip down to South America. Of all my styles this kind of photography is what I want to keep recreating most.
Have a look and let me know what you think!
A three hour ride up the mountain hillside. Buses passing transport trucks, cars, and motorcycles and then buses passing buses. In Ecuador it feels like if you hand over money before the task is done, it's a race to finish it. On Christmas day a cramped bus flipped off the hillside killing forty one passengers and severely injuring everyone else alive as they rolled like dice. We wondered how nobody every died and tried to shrug it off as we figured it was sudden death below.

I've been flying high as hell traveling, shooting, writing, and meeting a lot of new people with real deal stories. In order to land back on the ground safely I've put together an online shop where you can swipe a credit card and buy prints! I'm hoping this will be a good foundation so I can continue to do what I love.
Head over to my shop to see what's good. These are all limited edition, signed, numbered, and professionally printed C-prints, starting at $100, $225, & $425, depending on size.
