This was the very first session we shot, all the way back in March. It’s actually hard to believe that it has been that long since we did this, and even harder to believe that it took this long for us to get everything else in order so that we could launch Half Stop last week.

Jack (aka Princess Reason) has garnered quite the attention of bloggers, and music lovers alike over the course of the past year or so. Featured on the amazing Gold Flake Paint’s “Beautiful Confusion Singles Club” and their best EP’s of 2013 list with his Always Pretty EP as well as a handful of other indie music blogs across this interwebs.  Jack writes simple songs about love, and other relatable topics derived from his time spent living in the Echo Park neighborhood of east Los Angeles over the last couple of years.  The type of easy-to-relate music that we can all enjoy.

Whatever the case, we think you’ll like @princessreason just as much as we do!

Here’s another one of the Kurt Vile mural I took last year before it was defaced this morning. Read more about the incident HERE. 
Philadelphia is very well known for their hundreds, probably thousands, of murals through out the city and you never see anyone dare deface a mural. So many of us locals are asking, “Why?”

PNW Roadtrip - Days 1 & 2

So a month ago, for the third time, I road tripped up through the Pacific Northwest on a journey that lasted 15 days and took me over 3000 miles.  These photos document some of the things I experienced.

Joseph Arthur @ The Troubadour - 6/10/2014

The recordings of Joseph Arthur are truly heartfelt in the way they are performed. Soft and calm but filled with lots of emotion which lends to the powerful songwriting to really shine through to the listener. 

Live, on the other hand. These songs come at you full force with wailing guitar solos, flailing body parts, and lots of sweat.  One is no better than the other, in fact, I kind of like it this way.

The intensity that comes with Joseph Arthur in the live setting will put goosebumps up your spine.  It’s an awesome feeling.

Throw in the fact that he did a live painting in between the encore and painted the body parts of his bandmates and well, ladies and gentlemen, you have one hell of a fucking show.  One of the best of the year for me out of 40+ so far in 2014.  This show was a very nice balance of his originals as well as supporting his newly released Lou Reed tribute album “Lou”.  All in all, what an engaging experience.

Buy his music HERE.

If you’re in the LA area, come out tomorrow night for his art show:

Bedroom.  Yep.

June - 10 on 10 - Olympic National Park

This month is pretty exciting, as I just got back from an amazing 15 day, 3000+ mile journey up to the Pacific Northwest backcountry.   Being the third time I’ve ventured this way, I had my bearings a little more than I have in the past and more capable and efficient when navigating around.  I already had a few places in mind that I wanted to shoot and further explore so it made it a little easier to get the photos I was after.

Although this is only a fraction of the shots I’m super stoked on from this trip, I’m highlighting a single day within Olympic National Park (wiki), probably the most geographically diverse national park condensed to such a small area that we have here in the United States.  You can go from peaks in the Olympic range and glaciers like Hurricane Ridge as high as 7,788 feet which maintain up to 20 feet of snow even through the summer months, to the amazing rocky cliffs and beaches of Ruby or Rialto Beach, to breathtaking waterfall trails, to one of the wettest places in the continental United States in the temperate rainforests known as Hoh and Quinault getting up to 150 inches of rain per year.  All in a SINGLE DAY!  It really is mind boggling and if you ever get the opportunity to visit the Olympic Peninsula, you should really take advantage.

Just to put it into perspective, there are photographers who have lived and mountaineered here their entire lives and still only covered a fraction of the park’s 922,650 acres and over 600 miles of established trails.  It is a magical place that has always struck a chord with me, even with it’s sometimes brutal winter like conditions it still maintains an awe-inspiring beauty.  To see some other interesting facts about ONP, check out this link.

Hope you enjoyed by little short visual and factual tour of the Olympic Peninsula.  I hope it inspires you to get out and explore your local National Park or travel somewhere to visit a place of your dreams!
