Personal Record 2.9.2012


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.

I have also added a subscription feature to the blog – now you can stay updated about new posts and what is going on with my creative life via e-mail. To receive updates just add your email address to the box under Subscribe on the sidebar and voilà! you will be getting regular updates from me in no time. 


Superbowl Sunday was spent at a nearly empty bowling alley celebrating my friend Derek’s birthday – When you get a bunch of creatives and artists together to bowl the fez and smoking jacket  suddenly make a lot more sense. Derek was definitely the best dressed on the lanes that night.


My latest obsession that I discovered on – Duke Cannon Soap. Gigantic 3/4 pound bars of soap that do without all the overly flowery /perfume smells of most soap in favor of something a little  more masculine. I love the simple design of their packaging and the Army green color of the bar.

It’s hard to beat a slogan like “Smells Like Victory”


Scenes from being out and about in Buffalo this week – my favorite part of which was  stopping to explore the area around Buffalo’s Historic Central Terminal

Me and Erin visited a wonderful used bookstore call Old Editions – their multiple floors of literary excitement was definitely highlighted by one of the coolest collections of old photography books and manuals I have come across yet.

Me, Aaron, And scott did a lot of work in the studio this week, namely getting the place re-organized and ready for some large productions that are right on the horizon.

A new batch of prints that are ready to be added to the photo wall.


A while back I received this amazing book as a gift –  My first Ten Years with The Leica by Paul Wolff – I am just now starting to be able to go through it, and I think reading it is going to dominate a good part of my weekend. This volume is barely held together at its binding and the vintage images in it are astounding.

Healthy and un-healthy snacks respectively; Almonds dusted with cocoa powder and headcheese (totally gross to 95% of the world, but I grew up eating it and it is definitely one of my favorite sandwich fillers – then again, many people have made note of my eating habits over the years on this blog – maybe I am the weird one!)
