Away and Into the Blue album art by sfp&d

Late last year I got a chance to work with a client who was introduced to a unique musician. Unique is sometimes used to describe something as different without sounding mean. This time unique was used to describe a rare jewel. I was told his music was different, sampling from many wells but it wasn’t just a mindless hodgepodge. It was informed, directed, and intentional. I was intrigued, and heard a sample of the music that would eventually become the album Away and Into the Blue and I was impressed. The GRS has created a sonic palate that is creative and accessible, creating stories with singing, rapping, and a tapestry of sound that engulfs you while taking you on a journey.

The GRS released his album recently and I invite to you check it out. It’s available on AppleMusic, iTunes, Soundcloud, and Spotify and other streaming sites. Connect with him on his website, which I put together for him, and also check out some of the photos from our session below.

Also, learn more about the production of Away and Into the Blue by visiting Julian Cruz's post on the ethnikids website.


Personal Project: Night Texture

I recently set out on a personal project to create some textured images to use on another project in the future. In the process of creating these textures, I stumbled upon some great looking night time imagery that I'm excited to share with you.


I love the mood of these images and the atmosphere they create. Even though the images are dark, I really am proud of the detail that I was able to capture in the hands and arms, and how time is stopped.

Check out the images below. I hope you like them.

Christmas at Engage Church

I had the privilege once again of working with Engage Church in Tallahassee this past Christmas to help capture their Christmas service and also update their staff photos for their website. Below  are a few of my favorite photos from the day along with the staff portraits.

If you're looking for a church to worship in Tallahassee, I encourage you to visit Engage Church.
