Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Hello Friends, Family, Lovers, and Photo Enthusiasts,

This is just a quick note to announce a show that I will have work in that is having an opening reception this Friday (it’s already open, soory!). If you happen to be in the Philadelphia area and have some time free Friday evening, I’d love to see you! (Seriously,!) All the dirty details are above.

I also want to say a quick thank you to the fellows at and Paradigm Gallery + Studio for all their efforts in making this show happen. Oh, and for including my work! So thank you, to Dan Haddigan-Dreamboat and Kevin McWilliams of dirtisdirt. And thank you to Sara McCorriston and Jason Chen of Paradigm Gallery.

Submission Season

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Here’s a few links to things that every emerging photographer should be submitting to:


Juror: Peter Barberie, Curator of Photographs, Philadelphia Museum of Art

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is excited to announce A Love Supreme, 2nd Annual Contemporary Photography Competition and Exhibition. This year’s title refers to the dramatic transformation in John Coltrane’s creative process and sound in his legendary recording. Moving away from jazz standards to a spiritual and instinctual way of making music, Coltrane forever changed his medium. In this spirit, today’s photographers are creating new visual languages, pushing the medium in unprecedented and unpredictable ways, forever changing how we define photography.

Winning entries will be exhibited at PPAC from June 9 – August 27, 2011 and will be included in the exhibition catalog. First, second, and third prize winners will receive $500, $200, and $100 in cash prizes plus a $50 gift certificate for PPAC’s digital services. The competition is open to all subject matter and photographic processes. Work must have been created in the last 3 years. The entry fee is $40 for a maximum of 5 images. Enhanced lab members of PPAC do not need to send entry fee. Entry fees are non refundable.

All entries must be received by 11:59pm on Friday, May 13th. Entries can be delivered to PPAC or submitted online at

This year’s Photo Review International Photography Competition will be juried by Robert Mann, Director of the Robert Mann Gallery, one of New York’s leading contemporary photography galleries. The Photo Review Competition enables thousands of people across the country to see the accepted work in our 2011 competition issue and on our website. Also, the prize-winning photographers will be chosen for an exhibition at the photography gallery of The University of the Arts, Philadelphia.

Currently on View: 12th Street Gym

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

Until next Saturday, April 30th, two of my pieces from the Philadelphia series are on display at the 12th Street Gym. I am very thankful for the continued support of the General Manager for letting me participate in every Gallery Week thus far. The deadlines keep me making and trying new things. I’ve never printed any of these Philadelphia images before, so seeing them at 30 x 24 inches was very exciting. I’m currently looking into a lab where I can have the larger size made.

If you have a moment, swing by the 12th Street Gym this week and see the prints. And remember, next Friday, April 29th, the opening reception at Paradigm Gallery for the Trickery exhibition that I will have a piece in.

I am very pleased to be part of this show at Paradigm Gallery + Studio. A new, large format, piece will be hanging in this show (so new I haven’t even posted it on my flickr or anywhere else). I’m very excited to hang work with some previous classmates and other UArts alums. Please join us on April 29th for the opening reception.
