I'm back.. I think

I'm really bad at updating this blog, as you can tell.
BUT.. I would like to keep you updated on things, I suppose.
I'm very busy lately and it's driving me crazy but it's alright. I'm so busy doing photos for work and for my thesis and mini portfolio I started with an illustration student, Nikki Jarecz.

I will update some pictures tomorrow.
I just did some senior pictures today and I have a few next weekend and a band in about a month to shoot.

Goals for tonight:
ice pack for the knots in my back
as many disposable cameras as I can get
order film online.

More later...

Safe SEX

I am taking a Human Sexuality and Gender Psychology course this summer and it is really interesting. I decided to do some safe sex advertisements for my final project. I have two done so far. Check them out!

New Semester

Summer semester. I am ready to roll.

Alright. Sorry it's been a while since I have last updated. I have been crazy busy with finals and the student show at CCS and everything. I have just moved back to Grand Rapids and I am starting summer semester classes next week Wednesday. It should be a fun filled summer.

Summer goals:
-use found objects to create canvases
-photograph as much as I can
-buy monolights and battery pack
-sew and make clothing
-organize shoots with models
-create a model mayhem site
-update business cards and leave behinds
-create a Linkedin account
-go to Chicago, California, and out east to visit Kelsey and Jenny
-do well in school
-help the community
-go to Mackinac Island

So far those are my goals for the next few months.
I'm going to Chicago next weekend to visit Eunice and I will take lots of pictures.
Post later.


PS- GPA update: 3.760! I am so proud of myself!

New stuff on the website.
Some from Zach's shoot and from some models we shot recently in class.
I stayed up for 40some hours the other day. It was painful. But now I am back at school trying it again. I think this is a bad idea because I can't stop sneezing and my throat hurts. I think it's about 4am and I think it's time for me to go home and just come back to school early tomorrow. I also have to work at 4pm and I have tons of laundry to do.


Goodnight. :)

all nighter number one

The title explains it all. I have not slept yet.
Now I have class today 9am until 10pm.
I was supposed to have a rough draft today of my fairy tale at 1:15pm.
It is 8:52am and I still have no ideas. I've been thinking since 6:30am.
I'm thinking about just being honest and saying, "I have no clue what to write about. But I guarantee it will be done in one week."
Uhh... yeeeeahhhh I don't think it works that way.
I am really frustrated with it. I literally sit down for a few hours at a time and just ..sit there. I can't think of anything! It drives me up a wall.
Oh well.. that's the update of my life so far..

I came up with an awesome fairy tale in Business Practices class.
You just wait..........

It's finals weeks and I have been working hard. Easter was great and I had some great times visiting family back in Grand Rapids. Soon I will be back on the west side of the state enjoying the warm sun. Only three more weeks!

To keep you updated, I have been working on alot of projects. I just shot Zach Burger's upcoming album promotional portraits in my basement with a few rolls of white seamless. It was a blast seeing him and creating some fun portraits. His solo project is called This April. You can check out his songs on his Myspace page:

Also check out his heavier band, Come Find the Lion:

Great guys and good music from good ol' Grand Rapids, MI.
More later! Time for work.
