Asheville Photo in Our State Magazine

Check out the March 2015 issue of Our State which includes an Asheville, NC photo of mine on page 68.

Equipment I used to take the Asheville photo: Nikon D4 & Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8.

Blindfold Magazine

Today I received the first issue of Blindfold Magazine. It’s a ‘socially conscious photojournalism quarterly’ focusing on important issues. According to their site it’s about people and companies doing things outside of the box with an emphasis on giving back.

There is a story about my hometown of Asheville, NC in this issue which features several of my photos. I was thrilled that the magazine’s print quality and paper is gorgeous.

Ian Somerhalder is on the cover; he was in Lost and currently stars in Vampire Diaries (which he “sucks” in) and they interview him about his charitable organization IS Foundation. Good stuff! I recommend ordering a limited edition copy, not just because my photos are in it, but because it’s a magazine with a great cause. You can order a copy right here:

I did not photograph the cover photo of Ian Somerhalder. Though I would do a photo shoot with him in exchange for a Vampire Diaries t-shirt
