  • May you never let the storm carry you away. The good ones survive, the great ones ride the storm. This taken while I was making my book @thedirtysideofglamour although I ran out of time to get this whole collection in and never released this one which is called Black Balloon, the rain started to come in the wind picking up, it was cold but colder for her in nothing but a little dress, this is another from the archives. Do you want to see more from the archives?

  • When you forget the details the story bleeds dry. When we look into ourselves we see the things we love and the things we hate, you will notice that most conversations about the great things last 2 minutes while the conversations about negative things last 2 hours, when you focus on the garbage you end up in a dumpster. Free yourself from the negative. This is a self portrait I took with the amazing @hollandroden taken with my @hasselblad camera. When was the last time you had a long conversation with nothing negative?

  • Sometimes you have to destroy something to make it last forever, cars money clothes items fade brands die but legacy lives on, this photo will outlive me this will be hanging in someone’s home after my great grandchildren grow old. I remember so many people asking me why I blew up a Rolls Royce even some people were upset as if it was theirs, one person said to me “how could you do destroy something like that” I answered them by saying I didn’t destroy the car I made the photograph. Art is subjective but creation is fact. When was the last time you destroyed something beautiful?

  • It is the coward who runs from a fight for fear of losing and the pupil who loses and learns. What you learn about yourself when things go wrong is priceless, it’s only once you have been tested once you have lost, once you have been down to zero can you look up and decide who you want to be. This is a 45 by 45 inch print from my Provocateur series, seeing this large scale is like seeing it for the first time. Have you ever been tested? Have you ever been all the way back to zero?

  • You don’t have to be who someone else desires you to be, you don’t have to love someone else’s life, you don’t have to love just to pay bills, work just to feed yourself, exist just to have a mortgage, never exist for the idea of what you are supposed to be if you do you will never be. This is my photo titled Orchid which will be on display at the @tinneycontemporary for the next month in Nashville Saturday night we are having a big opening. What does this photo say to you?

  • So much of social media is a flex, look at my vacation look at how happy I am, and of course there are happy people, who post stuff on social media, but for all the people who create a fake persona and live a fake life on social media, what happens when the camera isn’t there, I have seen people only doing it for the photo only living so it can be posted, that’s no life, that’s no way to live, authenticity will become a commodity very soon.  Here are 2 photos with @dylansprayberry which do you like most? Do you follow any people you think live a fake social media life?

  • Time is an idea, motion is a fact. We move forward or we look back. I love to play with time, to play with what the mind see’s thinks hears or tastes is a form of creation. This is the amazing @dylansprayberry fighting against the rain drops. The song is by Radiohead. What do you think about the video, did you watch it more than once?

  • I’m the future everything will be designer. Worth is not in the price but in the value and if you can find value in something before their is worth you will always be fine. Cameras are a great example I have had many friends who wanted a vintage camera so they bought the cheapest one the. When it didn’t work they spend more money to fix it, which caused a delay which made them loose faith which caused them to give up, you get what you pay for invest 20% more to make an extra 100% that’s a deal you should make every time. Where would you hang this photo?

  • Watch out for the people who only want you to react how they expect, the people who think their way of doing something is the only way, and the ones who get angry when you don’t do what they want how they want, these people are control enthusiasts, they are closed minded short sided and dangerous for to the mental freedoms you deserve, not everyone thinks the same not everyone handles things the same, your opinion on life is not fact, you are not the end all be all, these energy vampires hide in plain sight, make sure you don’t get sucked in. Swipe right to see 9 more photos and the question of the day is their a song that no matter what is going on in your life makes you happy?

  • Everyone is magical until someone convinces them their not. Free yourself from the ideas of who you are that are created by someone else. You have to know your power know your mind and the strength of it. This moment was a flash in time never could I do it again the feeling remains with me I can still feel the second I pressed the shutter and felt the film expose its self to light. I will be debuting some work in Nashville at the Tinney Contemporary October 5th so anyone who is around Nashville come down and say hi! What does this photo make you feel?

  • You can’t cast the person you love because even the greatest actors break character after a while if you search for someone to play the part you desire instead of loving the person in their own story the romance will wilt like a flower in a freezer. Have you ever played a part for someone?

  • In the future everything will be designer. You will only receive what you think you deserve, if you see yourself doing what you dream of one day you will wake up in that reality. This was my first photo I ever took on Large format some years ago, I took this on my Toyo 4 by 5 camera for my indulgence series, the Chanel logo was hand stitched onto the shoes, the easy thing would have been to photoshop the logo on but part of the fun is doing it for real.  This photo is called Chanel Ballet and is a part of my Indulgence series. What do you indulge in?
