The best thing about film is that when you get your scans back, you get to relive all of the small moments over again. This roadtrip was one of the best adventures of my life so far, so getting to relive even just a single second is something pretty special.
Spent my last weekend in Philly rock climbing and testing out a bizarre expired demo roll of film. Only had 12 frames on it, but that meant when I finished, I had to give climbing a try. It's hard, but I definitely see why people are into it. Looking forward to trying more out west!
Very excited to have my film photo taken in Cuba featured by Need Supply on their instagram this week! Always love a #momentwithsunday
Throughout Cuba, there were so many small moments that really made the spirit of the Country come to life. I adored every single minute, and can't wait to go back. It's such a gift to be able to photograph such an amazing place.
A continuation of my trip to Cuba caught on film in the Vinales Valley in Cuba.
I recently visited Cuba for the first time. I decided that in order to travel light and push my photography further, that I would try to exclusively shoot film on my trip. I left my digital camera at home, and left with just 5 rolls of film and one 50mm lens. The images that resulted are some of my favorites. I can't wait to get back and challenge myself with film again in the near future.
Just got my film back from a roadtrip up route 395 in California. Portra 400 does something magic.
This last roll of film took me almost 3 months to get through. The upside though is there were so many memories I had forgotten about, and the color tones were really spectacular. Portra 400, I love you forever.
The Field Magazine is a digital ad-free magazine, intent on showing the beauty and accessibility of the outdoors. I couldn't be more proud to have them publish a photo essay from my recent trip to Iceland. All images were shot on film, and the words came straight from the heart.

PHOTO: DESERT RAINBOW
THIS SHOT BY ONE OF MY FAVORITE INSTAGRAMS, TSBEHR, IS ONE OF MY RECENT FAVES. DID YOU KNOW THOSE WIDE FLAT RAINBOW MIRAGES ARE CALLED BROKEN SPECTRES?
FOOD: BANANA BREAD WITH CHOCOLATE CHIPS
I'M NOT ONE FOR COOKING, BUT THIS WEEK I HAD TO MAKE USE OF SOME OLD BANANAS. THE RESULT WAS BREAKFAST FOR A WEEK THAT FELT MORE LIKE DESERT THAN BREAKFAST. I SUGGEST USING THIS RECIPE, PLUS ADDING CHOCOLATE CHIPS.
Saturdays spent in the city are a rarity lately. It's nice to capture a small moment of quiet in a place that always seems to feel so noisy.
Same scene, different medium, different cameras, completely different perspective. I don't think I'll ever get tired of comparing film and digital. Scene is sunset in the Adirondacks at Sacandaga Lake.
The first photography I ever did was a high school summer session using black and white film. Over 10 years later, and I haven't touched the stuff since. I thought it'd be fun to challenge myself to not only use film, but also try black and white. The results were better than expected.
These two photos of waterlilies from a lake weekend over the summer fully capture what I love about photography. It's dreamy, yet tangible, nostalgic, yet real.
