Acadia National Park Jessup Trail

Fall Photos from Acadia National Park and Beyond

Over the course of a month I drove across the US through Chicago, Canada, Upstate New York, and Maine. If you’re interested in my road trip you can see bits of it on my vlog.

It was a pleasure to capture fall on the North Eastern coast. In areas I mostly haven’t discovered before it was truly a unique experience for me.

I had the honor of returning to the White House for a second time, this time for a Haunted Tour! (See photos from my first tour)

10 Instagram Spots in Chicago to Explore

I finally made it to Chicago Illinois, aka, the Windy City! To my luck a couple of my friends from Instagram were also in town so we got to explore some epic sights together. I also made a few videos from my trip.

I’ve followed many photographers from Chicago throughout the years so it was awesome to finally see the city in person rather than just from their work (which continues to inspire). Most of my time was spent in “The Loop” where many of these locations are. Here’s how I managed to fill three days: Read More

National Museum Of African American History And Culture

Preview of the African American History and Culture Museum

Thanks to Instagram and IGDC I had the honor of visiting The National Museum of African American History and Culture a week early. There was tons of construction still happening but it was an amazing experience.

Located right next to the Washington Monument on the mall the African American History and Culture Museum is a new highlight of DC’s skyline.

The massive 300,000+ square footage building’s unique shape draws you directly in. It’s mind blowing how many pieces from African American history the museum has collected, plus the building goes deep underground. Read More

Best Places to Shoot in NYC

Top of the Rock

Empire State Building from Top of The Rock

Empire State Building Lit Up Blue for Autism Awareness Day

Top of the Rock has to be one of the best skyline views of New York. The only downside is that tickets are $26 and often require a wait. We rushed to get there before sunset but sadly the first available tickets were 2 hours later, so I recommend buying tickets online.

Snowy White House

Presidents’ Day Snowstorm in DC

DC got a few inches of snow on Presidents’ Day and luckily for me I was staying at the W hotel next to the White House. It came as quite the surprise to me since I had no idea DC would get this amount of snow.

The Washington Monument looked fantastic in the snow and you might recognize this angle from my fall photos. The white space around the monument in photos always bothers me so it’s fun to find trees to frame it.
