St. Patrick's Day

Check it out! 


The Latest and Greatest

Sorry it's been a while since the last post! Other than being on break, I've been busy working on this week's assignment of a photo story. I've got two running at the moment, one is about the opening of Bethesda's South Street Steaks- the absolute BEST place place to get a Philly Cheese Steak outside of Philly! And the other is about Steve Hauschka, the new place kicker for the Baltimore Ravens-and also my brother ;)
Those slideshows will all be finished in a couple weeks as we learn in class the ins and outs of final cut and fun programs like that. In the mean time here are some photos of the kicker extraordinaire with his new little puppy Jack from break in MA:

Relaxing & Reviving

Well being home in the 'Ham' has allowed me to take advantage of the opportunity to photograph little kids. I had the great opportunity to photograph my friend's little girl today so keep posted for some photos of her next week! 
In other news, I've just had a great time chilling out here at the 'rents' house and catching up with old foodie friends and family. Though the weather has been pretty awful, it's given me a chance to just hang out, relax and play with my new photo equipment. I'm feeling quite refreshed in a great way and looking forward to heading back to DC and getting back to the young thriving life. There's something about visiting home that just makes me live like a retired 60 year old who doesn't have much to do. Anyway, I've got a couple gigs coming up that will be in the papers and I'll be sure to keep you posted!

Spring Break=bad weather=new goodies!

I'm spending the break in Beantown catching up with the fam and I'm missing out on the beautiful weather they're having in DC...Not fair! None the less I did get some amazing new camera equipment and have been playing with it during my free time. It's AWESOME!!! I got the new Canon 5D Mark 2 and a couple new lenses...so regardless of my spring break having dreary weather and snow, it's still awesome!

Speaking of India....

The Oberoi....Magical

Ok so if anyone has ever had the chance to experience a stay at an Oberoi you are a privledged person...Now I stayed in several of them while I was lucky enough to partake in an alum trip to India with The president of the Colorado College and former US Ambassador to India, Dick Celeste. Every Oberoi we stayed in would have this video playing in the room when you walked in. It is this amazing video that is just so mezmorizing with stunning videography and an incredible song...Anyway, with the weather we've been having lately here in the city, i've been dreaming about warm places and thought about this video...watching it just makes me feel like I'm on vacation!

Amish Cinnamon Bread

Cooking is certainly another artistic outlet of mine. I went to culinary school and try to keep up the cooking skills I learned as much as I can while living the busy photographer lifestyle. One of the very delicious and special recipes I have come across is this Amish Cinnamon Bread... The catch is though that you can't make it from scratch, you have to get the starter from a friend. Then you mush the bag over a period of 10 days and add some ingredients, make 4 new starter kits and bake your bread! It's so so so so good! I'll be making mine on friday :) Can't wait for the delicious moist goodness that is on its way!!!

Business Plans

while researching and writing one of my business plans, i came up with a poem about them that i think is pretty good... ;)

business plans are not fun,
my brain hurts while writing them,
i'd rather be sitting in the sun,
on the beach or on a run.

more might be coming later- stay tuned...

SNOW in the City!

Wow! March certainly does come in like a lion...and will hopefully go out like a lamb. What a beautiful present to wake up to 4 inches of fresh white powder blanketing the city! I feel like I'm back home in Vail and I should throw on my snow pants and skis and hit the slopes! I'm gonna go make some snow angles outside and maybe take some pics of the snow-covered city, but in honor of my Colorado home, here are some videos to watch while you cuddle up with your snuggie or slanket to stay warm ;)
