So let me set the scene: I’m sitting in my living room editing photos. And I hear a thud against the window. No big deal, I wait to see my family walk up to the door.. But they never did!! I go outside to investigate and find that a bird has died mid-flight and slammed into our window! I swear if a bunch of birds start falling out of the air like they did in Missouri I’m leaving the country!!!
When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful. Saturday Dec 3, 2011 I was driving to Meads to finish hanging my gallery. I hadn’t had a very good morning. And I asked myself, why not. What’s holding me back. I have been trying to get a job in Colorado for over 2 months now. So after I finished up at Meads I got in my car and started...
Lover or Prostitute
This is a repost but I found it interesting so I’m sharing it. Source: Lover or Prostitute? The Question that Changed My Life by David Ryser A number of years ago, I had the privilege of teaching at a school of ministry. My students were hungry for God, and I was constantly searching for ways to challenge them to fall more in love with Jesus and to become voices for revival in the Church....

Is it May already!? =O wow The past 4 1/2 months have gone by so fast! I’ve been to so many new places and done so much in the past 4 1/2 months it’s ridiculous! It’s been crazy! Super fun, but man it went by fast. I’m home for the summer and have a lot of fun things planned. Touring has been great! I already miss all my new friends. Laying here in my hammock in...
i want to do some themed photoshoots.
thepenandthepoet: or at least begin to plan some, rather than having them be generic or impromptu or both. i want to be creative. Yeah I’ve been feeling/thinking the same way! :)
Coast To Coast In A Week
Tour Blog - March 13, 2011 Coast to coast in a week. On Wednesday Aaron, Shelby and I hopped in my truck to begin our trip to Orlando, FL to go to Amanda’s YWAM DTS graduation. I said my goodbyes to my family and we were off. We drove through the night on Wed and arrived in Galveston, TX on Thursday morning. Halfway through the drive that night though, we got pulled over in OK for not having a...
Hey there peoples! So I’m laying on some chairs turned bedish in a church in Dodge City. It’s been a long while since I’ve updated! Things have been good though. Currently we’re on the Big Gulps tour. It’s an acoustic tour with Sean Lea and Corey Martin from the band I’m touring with The Radiance Effect. Greg(bass) came along and is selling merch while...
If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
ramblingsofafool asked: Hey bud, have you gotten your photos from Friday's concert edited/uploaded?
Oh and are you going to Sunday's at the Murdock?
Oh and are you going to Sunday's at the Murdock?
I often ask God to bless someone. But what am I thinking? Will said blessing simply fall from the sky? Sometimes yes, but majority of the time God uses us, His people to do the blessing. He works through us to minister to His children and to grow each part of the body. So the next time you pray, wait. Be still. Listen, because the Holy Spirit might be trying to lead you to someone or to do...
So I took photos at the TobyMac, Brandon Heath, and House of Heroes concert the other night in my hometown. I learned something. It’s called focus. Something I did not have at this show!! I helped with load in all morning, then worked stage crew during the show as well as shot the concert any time I wasn’t working stage hands. I was exhausted by the end of the day! Oh, I also helped...
I’m really starting to get into the mindset of this video thing. All my ideas are crazy and way out there…shots that in my mind are super hard to pull off but I’m going to try none the less. I can’t wait to get the Canon XF100 in the next month or so!!! I have a Canon 7d that I’ll use for my b-roll stuff and just as a second cam. Every time I watch a movie or look...

I’m laying here in my bed thinking about all that’s happened. So much has happened. I’ve been getting to know each guy a little more everyday. Super cool dudes with great hearts!

Jan 5, 2011 - Tour Day 2
Today has been good. Tonight has been better. This morning we finished the long drive from Springfield to Warsaw, IN. We got to the church and met up with the youth pastor. Ate some epicly delicious sandwiches for lunch and then proceeded with load in. After sound check, John(youth pastor) and I talked for a while about video cameras and media stuff! Super nice guy. John had requested the band...
Jan 4, 2011 - Tour Day 1
Jan 4, 2010 - Tour Day 1 I finished packing my life into a bag this morning and said goodbye to my family, friends, and all the things that make me comfortable. I’m trading them for new friends and hopefully some amazing experiences. I’m so excited to see how God’s going to use me in the next couple months to minister to His people! I know this is where He wants me in this season. Everything...
I am going on tour with a band called The Radiance Effect. I will be covering all their media needs as well as running Merch and just helping out any way I can. I just bought a Canon 7D and when I sell my Yamaha R6 I will be getting a Canon XF100 both for shooting video. I finally decided to jump all in with video since it’s a passion of mine. I’ve never pursued it because of the cost...

We all loose faith and we all loose heart. So is everything lost or is it only the start of a new days dawn…and in the end I pray to God that we’ll all be saved! -Aaron Lee Martin
If you watched a movie about a guy who wanted a Volvo and worked for years to get it, you wouldn’t cry at the end when he drove off the lot, testing the windshield wipers. You wouldn’t tell your friends you saw a beautiful movie or go home and put a record on to think about the story you’d seen. The truth is, you wouldn’t remember that movie a week later, except you’d...

I found a random RV Park, that turns out, is super nice. It was nearly dark and I had just finished setting up camp when the park host pulled up and told me tents weren’t allowed. We talked for a bit and he said I could stay around the corner a little ways away from the rest of the RV’s. He drove me over and showed me where I could stay so I went back and moved everything to this...
I just went over the Mississippi River. It’s Huge! In other news, I’m in Memphis. Hellooo Elvis Presley.

I sold my iPhone 3G this morning for $150 :) That money will come in handy for my Florida trip next week! Made some Mac n cheese for lunch. Edited photos all afternoon and listened to new music Steve gave me! :D I came to the Andover Y to go rock climbing. Now I’m sitting in the locker room cause the Tornado sirens are going off. Bleh.
