This morning I found out that at least two of my cousins are missing in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. We hear of natural disasters and tragedies happening every day, all over the world, but rarely does it actually hit home.
I’d like to raise money and prayers for search and relief efforts for my family. If you can support, please visit https://www.youcaring.com/myfamilyinthephilippines to kindly make a donation to this effort.
I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted as we learn more about the status of my family overseas.

Photographing the Hodge Twins was a great experience in many ways. First of all, these guys are just funny as hell! I can’t even remember how I first stumbled across the twins (Keith and Kevin), but I’ve watched, and shared, many of their hilarious YouTube videos before being asked to photograph them for Urban Lux Magazine. Which brings me to the next reason I loved this photoshoot: shooting for magazines is awesome! Some of the greatest, creative challenges are faced while doing editorial work for a magazine, and I really enjoy being able to translate the editor’s vision and a story’s message through imagery.
To top it all off, I was able to work with my favorite creative team and we all got to travel to Washington, DC for the shoot! We got to shoot at locations like the National Harbor and the National Gallery of Art. Of course, after the work was done we turned the city inside out…but what happened in DC will stay in DC, lol!
