Alex & Madison // Young Americans


Pinned and Patched

Sometimes you just can't wait around for someone to hire you so that you can use an idea that's been on your mind -- and that idea included a lot of pins and patches.

I found Madison and her boyfriend, Alex, while scrolling through Instagram and reached out to see if they would be willing to come into the studio for a few hours and play dress-up.

They were down.

MOTO

"I live my life with a hardworking mentality. I'm a firm believer that success and anything worth achieving is never given but earned."

HEROES

"For me, a hero isn't someone who becomes an overnight sensation or someone who attains a level of greatness in their craft but someone who influences those around them, at all times, to be better. For me, that person is my father."

ACHIEVEMENT

"My first memory of achievement was [when I was] drafted into the OHL [Ontario Hockey League] as a 15-year-old."

The Carter Family


Gone with the wind

It was windy, when I rolled into Las Vegas to shoot the Carter family. So, we rescheduled for the following week when I was planning to roll back in.

I returned. It was still windy. But, it couldn't stop us and it didn't stop us. 

I had the best time with the Carter family out in the Nevada desert.
