My wife is the strongest woman I know. This is (a piece of) her incredible redemption story.
Judson Collier is a good friend of mine that started an internship for celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart in Feb, 2013. Before he left, his friends got together and celebrated his awesomeness with a proper goodbye. Here are a few shots from the night.
Check out his pitch to Jeremy that simultaneously won the internship and shut down the internet in one night.
I had the opportunity to shoot a live session with Denver Hawsey here in the University of Mobile woods. Denver will be recording an EP later this year with these songs included. I really love helping young artists and musicians along their creative path and Denver has a bright future ahead.
Props to my assistant, Garrett Hughes.

I had the privilege of joining my friend/Boston-based, singer-songwriter Matt Scott for the recording of his new album, “Poets & Saints” this past July (album releases January 17,2012). I shot a short-form documentary that tells the story of his album and a live studio session that will be released in the coming months. He also let me record some background vocals and a few hand claps!
Featured artist of The Kamel Project George Kamel recently finished recording his debut album, The Great Coward this past April. After a successful Kickstarter campaign that ended on May 15th, Kamel began the process of promoting and distributing his album, which just released this month.
“I was honestly baffled” says Kamel. “It was incredibly encouraging to see friends, family and strangers believe in you and your art so much that they invested their own money to be a part of it.”
Kamel exceeded his $2,500 Kickstarter goal, raising a total of $3,630 towards his album and distribution costs. Through this funding, he has covered recording costs and purchased 500 physical copies of the album along with t-shirts, buttons, stickers and air fresheners. In addition, Kamel has hired Big Picture Media to help him expand his reach beyond his local fan base into the digital realm using interviews, album reviews and digital sales.
“Because of the prior Kickstarter success (which essentially acted as pre-sales), the official release did not carry as much momentum as far as sales” he says. “I think it will be a slow but steady momentum for sales once the album finally makes it into all the digital stores.”
Despite his busy schedule, Kamel hopes to play a few shows in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts this summer.
“The plan now is to organize a live band, play as many shows as possible and hopefully open for a more well-known band on tour in 2013” he says. “The goal is to work hard, play hard and gain as many fans as possible through any and every outlet possible. It’s been a wild ride and this is just the beginning.”
