International Photography Awards- Honorable Mention

I just got notified that one of my photos received an honorable mention in the 2010 International Photography Awards. The above shot of parkour athlete, Daetan Huck was honored in the Professional, Advertising, "Other" division.

The International Photography Awards is an annual competition for professional, non-professional and student photographers on a global scale, which has created one of the most ambitious and comprehensive competitions in the photo world today.

I'm honored to have received this mention and it's got me charged with new vigor and ambition to keep pushing my work in new directions.

To see my photo and some of the other honorable mentions, check out the gallery HERE.

On the Road

I usually try to post at least once a week on this blog. As I look back at the month of June, I realize that my goal was far from reached last month. The result of being on the road and not getting to spend a lot of time behind the camera has left me with the more difficult task of finding things to write about. Not wanting to be "that guy" that just throws up a bunch of random garbage on the blog, I've remained silent for the last 2 weeks.

Well, two weeks of silence is enough for me... actually, I think that's the longest I've ever been quiet for. And while I might not have the most interesting "behind the scenes of a bad-ass photo shoot" blog post for this week, I thought I'd at least post something. Below are a handful of shots from my iPhone from the last couple of weeks of traveling. Hopefully something fun and unique.


Amazing Work... Thanks Red Bull

I just got an email from Red Bull announcing the finalists for their second Illume Photo Contest. The work that was submitted is absolutely stunning. I spent a good hour flipping through some of the photos featured on their website. I could have spent the rest of my day captivated by these images, but instead, I thought I'd share some of my favorites here. (A quick note: These are NOT my photos, just some of the photos that I feel are truly inspiring! Nice work to the photogs that created them.)

If you'd like to see the entire sampling, scroll down to the bottom of this post for the slideshow in its entirety. Enjoy!
