Pusswhip Banggang Album Art for Tim and Eric and Drag City Records

This has to be my favorite shoot of the year, so far. Tim and Eric (from Tim and Eric, Awesome Show, Great Job) have been my comedic idols since college. If you haven't seen it, give it a look, but just forewarning... it's not for everyone. I had an amazing opportunity to shoot the album art for their new single, Jambalaya, which was released on vinyl by Drag City Records. A limited edition record, complete with a dye-cut disc. And ironically enough, half of the song is on each side of the record, so you have to flip it over to hear the whole track. Big thanks to David McClymonds for assisting and Duke Aber for the incredible design work. This was a literal dream come true.

Cobra Collector for Wall Street Journal

Fun little feature I worked on for The Wall Street Journal about Lynn Park, a Shelby Cobra collector, technician and racer. Super interesting guy that I really enjoyed spending an afternoon with. There's a few more on the WSJ website. Thanks for looking!

Munro Bagging in Scotland from 2008

A little bit of a throwback from my trip to Scotland in 2008. I went Munro Bagging, which is described as "Scottish hill walking." Based on that description, I had no idea what I was in for that day. I followed 3 people, one of which was 76-years-old at the time. When I hopped on an early train to Glasgow to meet them, I didn't really know what to expect, which means I was in no way prepared. Expecting a casual walk up a 3,500 foot peak, I hadn't planned on bringing much food with me. Twelve miles, thirteen hours, and 5 peaks later, I was absolutely destroyed. To start things off, we had to cross a knee-deep stream that left my boots literally filled with water the entire trip, and my knees screaming with pain for the next few days. I learned a lot that day and was incredibly humbled by what I thought was a casual sport. The weather was insane, switching from rain, fog, snow, hail, and brilliant sun every 15 minutes or so. If you ever head to Scotland, I highly recommend a Munro Bagging trip while you're there. Just don't forget the food...
