I love cliches, so I’ll start my photojournal at the end.

I like to tell stories. The camera helps me talk less. :)

Above is ‘Seat Above the Clouds’. December 22nd 2012. I remember waking up on the plane, headed to meet family in the Bahamas for Christmas, and laughing in wonder if the world ended while I slept.

I’d have thought this was heaven, but then I saw a fellow jet in the clouds, and knew I was just on vacation for a change.

I’ll try to keep it interesting.

Much respect to @murs and @fashawn for letting us hang in the studio and film Edward Osei Gyimah’s new hip hop documentary. I call this photo, the spilled-mustard-on-my-shirt flow.

Shot at MDM studios here in Los Angeles. These dudes are laid back, and respectful, while still murdering people on beats. 

‘All Your Light’ April 18th, 2013.

Anyone close to me knows that Portugal. the Man is oft on my playlists. I’ll tell the whole story some day, but what started as listening to a song for a arduous journey, turned into one of the more unique friendships in my life.

I’ve never really been 'that guy’ or 'the fan’, and always keep that in mind when in the presence of musicians who helped get me through life.

Everywhere we go, everything we see, our journey can be scored.

Musicians that I find myself attuned to these days have had similar trials and tribulations, and it warms the heart to sing/air guitar/dance along to their hard work.

But of course, above is Zach. Above all things, he’s a good person. Zach is one of those guys you meet, and you know they give everything they have to make sure those around them are happy. It’s great to see him and his adoring fans being healed just by a dude from Alaska smoking a cigarette with them.

Zach. We need a round of beers, and night photography. Cheers to you.

Oh! Shout out to Chillefry aka Casserole :D
