Haiti

I've been back from my ten day trip from Haiti for over two weeks now. Geesh it was an amazing experience! I traveled from the north of Haiti to the south (much love to the best driver on the island, Pastor), made new friends, gained new understanding with old ones, and experienced great moments of peace. Ever since my return, I've been asking myself, 'What have I taken back from my trip besides being five shades darker?' Peace! Yes, peace over the last year I've been searching for consistent peace in my life. It was a rough road both literally and figuratively to get to this place, but somehow when I was up on cliff around 3 am watching the waves crash while journaling I was finally able to plug in. 

Now my goal is to retain that peace which has been difficult since I get cut off in Boston's traffic 3,000 times a day, bills are due, and some thief stole my Dave and Buster's card while I was out with my kids having more fun than Jake and Fin on one of their adventures in the Candy Kingdom. (Woosah). The storms will come and the ground will shake but retaining that peace will get you through. 

Ok enough about me. I ventured through Haiti to not only explore like my idol Dora , but take photos of the of the overwhelming beauty of the country which is often overlooked by a negative narrative. I am tired of groups of people and places having one story. My goal/duty as a photographer is to change that. Next year my work from my trip will be on display alongside a few Haitian artist for a month long exhibition. Make sure to come back for updates.

Fublac

Local Boston Rap artist Fublac stop by the studio for a few headshots. I decided to go with a high key shot, and a more moody shot for this session. I've always loved shooting shots like the first image, I think I'm going to focus a little more on that style.

Peter Bien-Aime Portfolio Update

Peter a former Boston University football player, and now Boston police officer stopped by the studio. Peter came to me to update his portfolio for fitness sponsorship. We sat down and talked, did a little research to find what the sponsors he wanted to attract were looking for. We settled on a look based on a few popular websites, and we started shooting. I used a 4 strobe setup to create this group of high key contrasty images.
