I gotta make some real choices man. Is that what I want for myself? Did I get to big? Because I like people, I like entertaining and the higher up I go for some reason the less happy I am. You know is it going to get to the point where I am doing a strip tease on TRL or waving a gun on the street. No I am not going to let it get to that point. I am going to go to Africa and Im going to find a way to be myself. I am an artist man, I don’t need a sneaker deal. Dave Chapelle
These are stills from the upcoming short film I’m creating with the talented Chadwick Gantes and Mike Spear. It’s been in the works for a while now, but last weekend was our first shoot. There will be 4-5 more over the next couple of months with a final release by the end of Spring 2014. I’m stoked to share more about the film throughout it’s production. For now, enjoy these frames of the always lovely Savannah Potafiy.

I have an amazing opportunity to participate on a project that can impact the lives of others and further my capabilities as a photographer. I will be traveling to India to photograph a non-profit called JOYN and their new campaign. In doing this I will be working with two amazing photographers (@estherhavens & @austinmann) that will help mentor me to learn what it means to become a humanitarian photographer and serve others with my passion. The only road block in my way is money and I’m not going to let it stop me. I need to pay for a plane flight and other travel costs. I am extremely uncomfortable to ask people for money, but this is a rare opportunity and I need your help. This is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’d be humbled by your support or sharing it with your network. Please take a look at my fundraising page (link in profile) and help me get to India. I cannot do this without you and every little bit helps. I would be greatly humbled by your donation. Feel free to explore the perks because my hope is to offer something fun in return for donating. #lighttheworld #India
