There have been a surprising amount of developments in my photographic life in these past few weeks. Besides taking an illuminating class and having a new lens on its way to me in the mail, I’ve gotten a number of exciting publishing opportunities in the next few weeks that I will try to keep mum on until I actually have something to show for it.

My friend Sera, who is a wonderful photographer in addition to being a talented musician, shot me and I shot her, in kind. What resulted is my favorite shoot I’ve done so far.
