Never Lose Sight

Each day we must go out to create our own stories. In some way we must leave our footprint in time, it's best to be remembered than forgotten. The ones that are remembered are only the ones that are forever moving forward. Some of us lose sight of this, just never forget it. 

2014 Cleveland Indians Ad Campaign, "Unfinished Business".

I had the pleasure of photographing Richard; a die hard Tribe fan for "Unfinished Business", his joyous personality and charisma really made the images Golden! The few words you can share with someone, can truly be more impactful than one imagines. Our world is vast and large, some of us are discoverers or wanders while others may just be fine with sitting back and watching the world Tick! 

UBS Corporate Headshots

UBS is one of the leaders in financial services. Once again, I had the opportunity of crossing paths with Richard one more time. Photographing corporate headshots high above Cleveland, watching the world below go round and round. As the saying goes; to each his own, who knows if Superman could be sitting right next to you. We each have different hobbies and interests, it's how you continue to grow after you've left your footprint. 

Mechanics

Lately I've had the opportunity of traveling. As a traveler you have many opportunities of meeting some very dynamic individuals. My current path of forward movement gave me the privilege of meeting Ryan Peticca; a native Clevelander, as well as, a fellow commercial photographer. As a creative it's not about knowing what's next, but only living in the now. 

I was fortunate enough to collaborate some existing projects with him and in the process sparked some new visual ideas.

The Mechanics within the brain. A drive that pushes the thoughts to undiscovered areas. 

Seasons A Changin'

"Nick Swisher, Unfinished Business"- Print Ad Campaign 2014

As you all know, there are only 4 seasons. After getting up and changing my whole atmosphere, my life had to transition and adjust to what was around me. Coming from the "Sunshine State", you gotta get out, network and love where you're at. However; what I've seen on the east coast, the masses were more than content trapping themselves in Hibernation until mother nature herself has transitioned. 

Hollywood is a land where dreams are made and lives are changed. I on the other hand had grown up there, so I had to get out to see my dreams come true. My life gave me the privilege of photographing the Cleveland Indians Ad Campaign. 

Forever A Pact

Marriage is more than a husband and a wife, it's a tying bond of unity and friendship.  We all need symbolism in our lives; just like a ring, it shows an everlasting bond for one another. When one is succeeding and striving all you can do as a spouse is support them. When one is down, the other is meant to pick the other one up and still support them; through dark times and bright times. This to me is the meaning of marriage.

Gabe & Larissa; engagement underway forever showing the joy for one another.  

I had the pleasure of meeting Gabe and Larissa, a very fun loving couple. We spent a day around some of the most awe-inspiring spots around Cleveland Heights and Little Italy. I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to demonstrate their developed alliance for one another.

An engagement is a tie between one another; however, we cannot let the tie blind us of our own hobbies and passions. As a forever growing bond you just have to show your individualistic qualities and interests. Use this to intrigue one another and show that each day is a new day; a day worth learning, worth striving to new plateau's only we can get to with the forever bond and friendship that is created amongst one another. 

A Journey Ahead

Things are progressing here; as I took each day one day at a time and pushed myself to get to where I'm at. I could not have gotten here without the help of some very special friends & family. My next Chapter in life is coming up sooner than I can even imagine. As of December 30th I'll be splitting out of LA for a little while and starting a new journey.  I've set out and am going to make a cross country road trip. Reconnecting with old friends along the way, starting the new year fresh and hopefully leaving a large imprint on others lives.

Dive Into A New World!

My final destination on my game of life is Cleveland, Ohio. So far, it's looking like a 36 hour drive and I may possibly do it solo with my camera gear and that's it. Just know, I'll be living my dreams and getting out into the world.  I landed a job offer for a short time being, still applying my creative field and using my photography magic to the fullest! The big picture is who knows whats next. I try to wonder and imagine my new path and new journey; although, all I can imagine is the thought of being still and aware of just what's still in front of me for the days I have left here.  I'll be back sooner than you can imagine LA, keep on your toes and watch out for this new road warrior!
