music | video | design

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I: upload new content there consistently, have composed music, make the occasional YouTube video, and design & maintain my own website. All of this creative output is not my day job, and life gets busy sometimes but I do try to do as much creating as time and circumstance allows.

I enjoy creating videos, mostly from the images (and videos) I have taken, and I always include at least a snippet from one of my songs (click the link above to visit my music page). I’ve been toying with this genre for a few years now, and my goal by the end of the year is to push myself to produce some creative video projects are more watchable compared to my current content.

It was important to start separating my photography from my music page (though I have used, and will continue to use them together) because I’ve been focused a lot more on my photographic process lately. As a result, I’ve designed these pages specifically to focus on imagery I create. These pages are not limited to just sharing my photos, but also video creation and any other design work that I do along the way. My Instagram is a good place to revisit for news on my latest projects.

Further to organizing my projects better here on my website, I recently also joined Flickr. I may be a little late to the game (hopefully SmugMug’s recent acquisition of Flickr will keep it alive) but I think Flickr is a good place for me to be right now, creatively - somewhere I can focus more on photography. The photos I post on Flickr are usually one-off’s, and aren’t necessarily posted on my Instagram. Feel free to stop by:

Constantly learning, constantly dabbling. I’ve learned a lot about photography recently and have been practicing a LOT. Understanding the terminology and techniques has made a huge difference in how I take, edit and critique a photo.

I now exclusively use Affinity Photo iOS (the intuitive Photoshop equivalent for iPad) to edit my photos. For video editing, I use LumaFusion (iOS) - a featured filled, almost perfect editor. Affinity Photo and LumaFusion are frequently mentioned and used together in reviews and tutorials. Graphic for iPad is useful for other design work that I do. My newly acquired Affinity Designer (iOS) is super useful for every creative project I’m working on. And of course, I am always looking for ways to up my web design game - which by the way, looks better on a bigger device like iPad or desktop.

I hope you like what you see here, and through the other venues I have mentioned above. I’m always working on better ways to implement every creative thing that I do. I’m contemplating creating some video tutorials based on my own creative processes. Interested?
