April 6, 2020


A selection of some of my best photos taken in March 2020. I considered not even doing a post this month, I was going to just post a picture with the words canceled in bold on a white background. But then I decided to do something, even though I might not get paid to take them.

A Month-In-Photos: October 2019


December 18, 2019


A selection of some of my best photos taken in October 2019. There was too much politics this month, I could have and maybe should've photographed even more. I didn't get to photograph the President again but got to cover the crowd outside of the event which might have been better.

A Month-In-Photos: May 2019


May 30, 2019


A selection of some of my best photos taken in May 2019. Summer is here and the heat is unbearable, I wasn't super busy this month but still managed to capture a lot of images. I was mostly busy doing other things like traveling to my nephew's baptism, I can now say that I'm a godfather. I once again got blasted by the sun at the 14th Annual Rosewood Crawfish Festival, at least until the rain came then I got soaked. It was a fun month, I can't wait to see what June has in store for me.

A Month-In-Photos: April 2019


May 29, 2019


A selection of some of my best photos taken in July 2018. It has been a very busy month for me... not that I'm complaining, I like having things to do. I believe I'm having a creative block lately, I haven't been super happy about what I've been able to create. I guess I'm growing as a creative, I believe I'm going through a growth spurt, it's not the first time this has happened in my life.
