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!
