Sup fam. Its been a while. I have a few links to point you towards before this goes down.
the collective, agency, company, crew officially formed as of a few months ago.. we are standing on 5 pairs of legs and standing strong. Robert August, Julius Metoyer, Sean Flanigan, Mustafah Abdulaziz and myself form the ranks as of now. lots of projects/clients are in the works.. “the surge” has begun and a bright future beckons. get at me if you have any questions.
Julius‘ latest blog post was a stunner.

The past few months have seen countless portrait sessions with countless Harvardites.. Lots of posing.. lots of window light.. lots of the 50 1.2 L. It has become my go-to lens and i am fiending some quality time with my 16-35 2.8 L in Mexico.
I will bypass a mass posting of images from work and skip to a protest i shot a few days ago in between assignments.. it was the first time in a long time that my brain was tickled by the interaction between photographer and subject.. shooting portraits of academics and students can feel very forced and it was nice to just walk around, invade personal space, and make wonderful pictures.
I just sent off a roll of kodachrome.. and I have 9-12 rolls of Neopan/Tri-X/Provia 400 pending. Scanning is a bitch and who really enjoys doing it with an out-dated scanner with no software support? I dont. Alas, it will probably get done over the next week while Harvard is on Spring Break.
heres some angry Tibetans. China really fucked up royally with this one and i hope they feel the blunt force of the world’s disapproval for their actions.
