Personal Record is an ongoing stream of the images I make outside of my professional career. The personal images, mobile images, outtakes, and random candid images that I take on whatever camera I happen to have handy at the time; a documentation of my day-to-day life and the things I come across that interest me visually.
Some interesting finds from a recent visit me and Erin made to Niagara Falls. You can find the most interesting/creepy stuff just randomly littered around that city if you keep your eyes open. Old neon signs, decaying statues, amazingly surreal street scenes – all of these seem to be common place just 20 minutes north of where I live. These were in the courtyard of a mexican restaurant we like to stop by occasionally, one that is attached to classic Niagara Falls creepy tourist motel.
The drunk octopus seems to be following me around lately, though this is the first time I have seem his as an albino. He is always challenging me to a fight.
The wonderful team from Block Club
spent some time at the studio last week as I am working on some editorial images for their upcoming issue.
Since moving usually includes a period of having an empty fridge and a huge appetite, we have dropped by some local haunts to stock up on supplies and refuel ourselves. From top to bottom: Pho, Lemon/Rosemary roast chicken, and Romanesco broccoli.
There is something really funny about watching Adam put on clothes that are far to small for him, this is how we distracted ourselves on the last night of the move when we were cleaning out the old place.
I found this one window in my new house that swings open and has the nicest natural light, naturally I forced Erin to step in for an impromptu photo session in the middle of the move when I should have been unpacking. In fact I think I postponed even opening a single box to take these shots, I’m not sure if that says something good about my dedication to photography or something bad about my apathy towards unpacking.
A small collection of images from the move.
My post move reward to myself.
It has been unseasonably warm in Buffalo lately, normally the landscape would be white and frosty this time of year, but some days are still reaching into the low 60’s – this means rain, lots of rain, it has been a near constant drizzle for some time now punctuated by some even more uncharacteristically warm sunny days.

I am still holding Bryan’s glasses hostage.
