I just found out today that one of my photos called “Self Portraitist” won an award on ViewBug. Maybe I should post more of my stuff on there…

Fine Art Photo for “The Meal”

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Today I made my first contribution to The Art House Co-op, for a project called “The Meal.” Basically, there is going to be an exhibition of self portraits of people and their meal from February 24th at 12 pm EST. According to the website, there were over 4400 contributors to this project, which will be exhibited in Brooklyn, NY and made available online starting April 5th.

My meal was a breakfast quesadilla, and Toby was eating his dog food.


Starry Night Self Portrait

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Ever since I fell in love with photography as a high school sophomore, it has been my dream to have a photo published in National Geographic magazine. Now you can help make that dream come true (how often can you say that?). And it’s really easy: all you have to do is vote for my photograph by clicking here. The photo (seen below) can be found in “Week 2.” Whichever photo has the highest rating when the voting ends on April 1st will be published.

I took this self portrait with my wife Lisa in Arizona when we visited my grandma in 2009. We both love stargazing, because it reminds us of our first date watching the Leonid meteorite shower. This picture also reminds me of Van Gogh’s Starry Night and other nocturnal paintings. Thank you for voting!

Fine Art Photo of the Week V

This photo is of the newest batch of fresh flowers that we had in our living room. Of course, this is after the tulips have wilted. I held my camera above them to show this unique angle. You can see our sofa at the top of the frame and my legs at the bottom.
