The Azores

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting dozens of countries over the last few years in an attempt to pursue and capture some of the most beautiful places on this planet. However, I feel like with the advent of social media, every place I’ve been to in the last few years has been overrun by tourists.

This year, we decided to head to the Azores and it has quickly become one of my favorite places. The people are amazing the natural beauty spans as far as the eye can see. Without further ado, here are some of my favorite images from our last summer trip.

Re-shooting 35mm Film

My parents recently found the first camera I had owned – 21 years ago! And I couldn't wait to try it out using some Kodak B&W Film. 

While the results are definitely different, I'm in awe that a $20 point-and-shoot camera can still hold up!

For as long as I've been a photographer, I've always been challenged by fireworks. This year, we got lucky with fewer crowds and some interesting angles.
