Took a big drive around Lake Washington this afternoon and had some time to get the drone up in the air.  It was a beautiful afternoon and evening in Seattle, so I thought I'd share some footage. Soundtrack provided by my ultra talented son, @christiangravbrot, with the beat made on his iPhone in Garage Band. - - - - #wanderlust #exploremore #drone #traveling #instatravel #artofvisuals #liveauthentic #photooftheday #explorerocreate #stayandwander #passionpassport #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #dji #instago #travel #mavicpro #canon #dronestagram  #neverstopexploring #seattle #pnw

Craving a trip to this city again.  I love the mood and the weather in San Francisco during this time of the year.

If Instagram would let me upload this insane video from @punkindrublicfestival of @goldfingermusic yesterday, I'd be so stoked. It's probably the coolest thing I've ever shot. Until then, here's a photo of one of my favorite people, Mike, who plays bass in Goldfinger.  Most of you know him as Mike, who sings and plays bass for MxPx. How many of y'all knew he does double duty?? - - - - #mxpx #mikeherrera #punkrock #warpedtour #punkindrublic #concertphotography #portraitmood #profile_vision #majestic_people #portraitoftheday #moodyports #makeportraits #tattoos #moodygrams #jar_presets #illgrammers #Photooftheday #naturallight #portrait_perfection #igmasters #visualoflife #aov #goldfinger

A little birdie told me that today is National Wife Appreciation Day. So in the spirit of that, I appreciate the day in and day out of being this woman's husband. I appreciate her hard work, her love of animals, her spirit of adventure, and her beauty both inside and out.  I'm a very blessed guy. I love you Mimi! - - - - #portraitphotography #portrait #portraits_universe #portraits_ig #portrait_shots #ig_portrait #portraitmood #profile_vision #majestic_people #portraitoftheday #moodyports #makeportraits #agameofportraits #moodygrams #jar_presets #illgrammers #Photooftheday #naturallight #portrait_perfection #igmasters #visualoflife #aov #wanderfolk #shanghaiyogaparty #wife #love #phoenixphotographer #arizona

I stumbled into the music of John Feldmann in the early 2000's, not because of the actual band he fronted for years, but because of his production on albums that I listened to heavily. First, it was The Used and their seminal self-titled debut album.  Then, it was Story Of The Year and their banger "Page Avenue". It seemed for years that I'd hear an album and know that it was produced by Mr. Feldmann.  His records just have a familiar audial sheen to them that is recognizable in a good way. As the years have gone on, he's worked behind the boards on so many albums from friends of mine that it was only a matter of time before I had a chance to shoot some photos of him playing in his band Goldfinger. Yes, that Goldfinger, a band that despite not having actively listened to during their heyday, I still know songs of, simply because of their longevity and their punk rock appeal.  He's a legend in his own right and today, I was able to snap a few photos and shoot a little video of @goldfingermusic while they performed on day 1 of the "Punk In Drublic" festival, put on by NOFX founder Fat Mike. Thanks for all the monumental records John, you've helped provide a lifetime of soundtracks for many, many people. - - - - - - - - #portraitphotography #altpress #portraits_universe #portraits_ig #portrait_shots #northwest #music #profile_vision #majestic_people #concertphotography #legend #sunlight #concertphotography #moodygrams #jar_presets #illgrammers #Photooftheday #naturallight #pnw #igmasters #visualoflife #aov #goldfinger

//10,000 hours// I had this line of thought today regarding the rule of 10,000 hours.  It had me thinking, because while it seems like I've been photographing for awhile now, the truth of the matter is that it's this unseemly 2nd career for me and I've really only been doing it for a few years.  In order for me to get better or to continue my "education", I've got to get out and keep shooting.  I've done that for the entire time I've been shooting, completing a 365 portrait project in 2014, parlaying that into more consistent work over the ensuing years.  But that doesn't mean I get to shoot as much as I'd like to -- and I gotta be honest, I got into doing photography, because I freaking love doing it.  Thankfully, I married someone who loves photography as much as I do and who's down to let me keep getting in those 10,000 hours.  Adventuring and location scouting are the best with my wife.  Here's a frame from one of those hours. - - - - #10000hours #shanghaiyogaparty #portraitphotography #portrait #portraits_universe #portraits_ig #portrait_shots #ig_portrait #portraitmood #profile_vision #majestic_people #portraitoftheday #moodyports #makeportraits #agameofportraits #moodygrams #jar_presets #illgrammers #Photooftheday #naturallight #portrait_perfection #igmasters #visualoflife #aov #wanderfolk #wifey #love

Sometimes, ya get the whole band in the shot. Here's a frame from Cons EP release show in Phoenix the other night. If you like metal, this band will blow your mind. In the vein of Oh, Sleeper, Norma Jean, or early era Saosin (but heavier). Check out the rest of the concert photos on my blog, link in my bio. - - - - #altpress #summer17 #canon #35mm #portrait_shots #ig_portrait #portraitmood #profile_vision #majestic_people #music #phoenixphotographer #arizona #phoenix #moodygrams #jar_presets #illgrammers #Photooftheday #naturallight #concertphotography #igmasters #visualoflife #aov #metal

The last 12 days have been so busy and crazy. I'm finally back "home" in Seattle after a trip to San Diego and separately to Phoenix. I shot for a Cannabis business magazine on the one day I was back in Washington last week and while I was down in San Diego, I shot for my friend and musical buddy, Ruslan (pictured), while also appearing on his weekly vlog twice in the last 8 days. I've spent a much needed 3 days with my son, having fun, seeing movies, and celebrating his 14th year revolving around the sun. And now, I'm back in Seattle for a few days and I get to talk plans and goals with my wife and love on her while she's feeling sick. What a crazy life.  A few years ago, I was a hairstylist. Now, I'm a photographer who gets to travel and find work opportunities wherever I go.  If you don't believe in following your dreams, let me hopefully be an inspiration to you. It doesn't come fast or easy or without speed bumps along the way, but I have gone after everything I have ever wanted to photograph and see, and it's now my career. I'm so grateful for the people in my life who allow me to do this. I'm thankful that people take me up on my skills and that my loved ones support this crazy passion of mine. I do it because I love it and because I'm allowed to bring my loved ones along for the ride. There's nothing better. God is good! And so are my family and friends. - - - - #portraitphotography #portrait #portraits_universe #portraits_ig #portrait_shots #ig_portrait #portraitmood #profile_vision #majestic_people #portraitoftheday #moodyports #makeportraits #agameofportraits #moodygrams #jar_presets #illgrammers #Photooftheday #naturallight #portrait_perfection #igmasters #visualoflife #aov #wanderfolk #sandiego #california #art

I pray we never have to experience something as tragic and life threatening as we did on this day 16 years ago. I think about it as every year passes, never forgetting where I was, what I personally felt as the hours crept by on September 11th of 2001.  My thoughts always drift to the families that were forever changed because of what happened.  I pray that our current challenges that we face as a country are met with rational thought and cool heads. No matter what we face as a nation and a global community, I have faith that better days are ahead and not behind us. - - - - #neverforget #911 - - - - #wanderlust #exploremore #vacation #traveling #instatravel #artofvisuals #liveauthentic #photooftheday #explorerocreate #stayandwander #passionpassport #ourplanetdaily #nakedplanet #america #instago #travel #nyc #canon #wildernessculture  #neverstopexploring
