A Weekend Trip to Bologna Photo Journal Pt.1

Asking ourselves what life really is about. Unable to answer, we scoff at a future of important decisions and believe its about the whimsical moments right now. Only to realize the important decisions have already been made. When you look back at your life and call upon those blurred memories in your head, more often […]

Being Uncomfortable Is Worth It (A Talk About Inspiration in Modern Photography) NSFW

Being uncomfortable is worth it. Lets face it, everything inspires us as artists. From the way something sounds, to how it feels when we pick it up, to how it smells when its cooking, we turn these direct interactions into the inspiration we thrive on when making art and doing what we love.

Viareggio Beach Photography and Portraits

Beaches in Italy are unlike any other experience you will have. In a beautifully chaotic way tan asses, bare chests, consumerism, tanning oil, crossword puzzles, semi good food, and sun rays collide with each other to create places like Viareggio. Just an hour and a half train ride away from florence, Viareggio is a quaint […]

Florence Photo Journal Pt.2 (Mexican Night in Florence with Dutch, Hispanic, Spanish, Australian, and British Friends)

Ok, so normally street photography is out and about in the city interacting with strangers and looking for that visually perfect fleeting moment, but some times the most genuine interactions and times can be documented right where you live. This evening was definitely the case. We had been living at the Russian Art Academy for […]

Venice Street Photography Pt.1

The light is different throughout world. How the sun reflects on water, the mist in the air, the halogen lamps, flickering neon signs, it is a new experience with every place a person visits.
