  • Photographing Fire Spinners

    Above: Jen and Chris silhouetted while spinning poi together. I had the opportunity ten days ago to travel up to Connecticut to go to a party and photograph some people spinning fire.

  • Charleston, SC

    A few weeks ago I spent a long weekend in Charleston, SC visiting my friend Alex Cothran. I went to Charleston last year for spring break, but Alex showed me around a bunch of places I haven’t seen around the city. I had a great time! Though I was only there a few days, below […]

    Finally, after a stressful week, I have a few hours before I have to start studying for finals. Here are my photos from Bordeaux, where I spent the most time.
