  1. Photographing the Civil War Bucktails of Pennsylvania

    21 Nov 2016

    After two years of coordination and extensive research, I finally got to photograph a personal project that is very dear to me.  It was one of those projects that kept me up late at night while lying in bed anxiously thinking about the portraits and how they would look in…

  2. Hell’s Angels B-17 Top Turret Gunner Donald Conley

    26 Jan 2016

    The last couple months of 2015 got to be so busy that I unfortunately did not have much time for personal work.  With the start of the new year, I’m trying to make it a point to shoot more of what I really enjoy.  That of course includes continuing to…

  3. Pearl Harbor Veteran Isaac George

    13 May 2015

    A while back, I received a phone call from a woman who lives in my hometown.  She had come across my portraits of WWII veterans that I photographed while visiting Pennsylvania, and wanted to pass on a name and telephone number of someone I may be interested in contacting.  She…

  4. Battle of Guadalcanal Veteran Glenn Hepler

    03 Sep 2014

    As I mentioned last week, I was fortunate enough to photograph two WWII veterans while visiting my hometown in western Pennsylvania.

  5. Battle of Okinawa Veteran Bob Miller

    26 Aug 2014

    A couple weeks ago, I traveled to Pennsylvania to visit my family and celebrate my grandfather’s 90th birthday. If time and schedules allowed it, I thought that it would also be a great opportunity to meet and photograph WWII veterans who live in my hometown. Asking around on Facebook, I…

  6. WWII P-51 Mustang Pilot Captain Robert G. Kurtz

    19 Aug 2014

    When I first began this project back in April, meeting a veteran pilot from WWII was something that I hoped would eventually happen. I’ve always been fascinated by the aircraft used during the war, especially the P-51 Mustang. By chance, I was telling a new friend at a bachelor party…

  7. Bike Messengers for The Washington Post Magazine

    23 Jun 2014

    This was certainly one of the more physically demanding projects I’ve ever done, not to mention dangerous. It all started with a simple idea to reach out to any bike messenger that I could get in touch with and ask if they would be willing to sit/stand for portrait. As…

  8. D-Day Veteran Portraits for The Washington Post

    09 Jun 2014

    You may not know this, but I graduated college with a degree in History. Yes, you read that correctly, History. I knew that I never wanted to teach the subject, and everyone would ask what I planned to do with it if not teach. Frankly, I had no idea. Like…

  9. ‘Sleep in Transit’ featured in Switzerland

    07 May 2014

    Originally Published December 30, 2013 The week before Christmas, I woke up to an email from an overseas newspaper inquiring about my project ‘Sleep in Transit’. NZZ am Sonntag is a daily paper that is published in Zürich, Switzerland, and they were putting together an article about sleep deprivation. Searching…
