After any big project I shoot I always try to make it a ritual to go through all the images we created for the project, it’s good to reflect and see what came of it all. And after being gone for 2 weeks I can’t think of a reason not to lay right here and do that in bed ✨


The older I get the more I’ve settled into knowing that what we create isn’t who we are. Vulnerability will be my life time struggle, it just doesn’t come easy for a fella like me. But I know everyday I show up and become present with my friends it points towards something better.
Man I sure did miss this pretty girl. Glad to hang my hat in this honky tonk town.


I get it kid, I feel the same way about big cities. Ha!
But London really is lovely! Everyone keeps asking if I’m from Texas? Wish I had more time to explore the city but it’s always good to be working ✨



Leaving this silly creature later on today for 2 weeks to head over to the UK to shoot a project ✨ I’ve actually never been to Europe so I’m really looking forward to it.
If you happen to own a Land Rover (that’s running, lolz) drop me a line! I’d fancy getting stuck in the English country side


It’s good for a man to take a portrait with his best hound


My buddy, @shane.artistry, and one of my very favorite Nashville artists, brought over a new piece to hang above my bed! I love his work so much, all the feels 😊✨



Someone’s finally up


Gonna document slices of my house over the next few...I suppose it’s cause I haven’t seen it in 3 months and missed hanging my hat around here 😊
My house sits on 1 acre of land in Nashville, I found it for sale on Craigslist getting on 3 years ago now. The lot was $30k, the land being the right price is the biggest reason I could build in the city. Those sort of deals seem long gone around here. Most slices will cost ya $100k+ these days and you’d have to build 2 house on it for it to make sense (or be wealthy or just live underwater for a few years).
My home is 1080sq ft and 2 bedroom, 2 bath. It’s not prefab, those still don’t make economical sense yet unless you’re in a remote area or just going high end. .
The vision for this place was to great a home I loved and felt recharged it + have it be affordable. All in my mortgage is $200,000 and is $1250/month. .
That’s my biggest encouragement for creative freedom in life. Try to set yourself up with low overhead so you can stretch your wings and need less ✨


The little home I built 😊



The past few moons I’ve been thinking more about where Maddie’s food come from. How we feed our beloved friends meat daily yet we’re disconnected from the’s happening in some far off factory, not really effecting our daily life, so we don’t have to think much about the animals that gave their life to provide for another.
For myself I’ve been choosing to eat less meat recently and when I do I wanna be able to shake the farmers hand. Someone who cared and understood. It’s easy to become disconnected to the Earth these days, the cycle of life, the balance of giving and receiving. Especially in a time when cities are expanding and most of us don’t grow our own food.
So this is why I choose to stomp around the Tennessee woods with Maddie hunting squirrels. I want to be a part of the cycle of life directly. To own what it takes to give life and then give thanks.
I ain’t trying to convince anyone of much of anything. This is just my way, it doesn’t need to be yours. Maybe you’ll choose to grow sweet potatoes for your pup this year, or buy more thoughtful kibble, or stomp around the woods yourself.
My only encouragement is to reconnect with the Earth in a deeper way this year. It’s been so good for me ✨


It feels so good to be home y’all! I’ve had a bunch of rambling in my bones the past few years but whenever I come back to this space I never wanna leave. This house makes me so happy, wish I could describe it better, but I love my little home!
Glad to be hanging my hat in Nashville for a minute and reconnect with my community ✨


Whenever I start getting close to the South folks start asking me when I’m pumping diesel “hey, does that dog hunt?” Without fail. Part of what I love about heading home 🙃.
And I always respond “Yes’er, organic quinoa bowls.”
Just kidding. I literally never say that.



My dog is weird


Put my blue collar shirt on the past few weeks, trying to remember where I came from. I love photography like nothing else in life. But some of my finest days where on a tractor in a field. I’m thinking my hands are gonna get a bit dirtier this year.
But for today we’re back to living the dream and sitting in the worlds finest hot spring 😊


Gotta keep your paws warm while the chains go on 😊



This particular dog comes fully equipped with a built in glove warmer


My resolution this year is to let go of the past, connect with myself, wake up, and be present. Glad I got this good dog with me for a reminder along the way ✨


Always love seeing this coast



Portland has the best photo booths ✨


2018 feels good already 😊


Neat how we always seem to end the year real different from the place we started ✨ Happy New Years y’all!


Pointing towards Oregon ✨


Made it to the coast last night! Blessed I got to celebrate this holiday with old friends, new sobriety, and good dogz 😊


Trying to make it to Big Sur for sunset


My heart this mornin’ is thinking about my moms southern cooking and waking up way too early with my sister to run downstairs towards the tree. We’d always have biscuits and gravy, salty ham, and watch a Christmas Story 😊🎄it’s those little memories, right? That’s gotta be one of the best parts about starting a family is making your own traditions.
My Christmas this year is a bit different than most years but it feels right. I’m out in the wilderness exploring some country I love deeply. So here’s to another year of counting stars ✨ 2017 wasn’t always easy but I wouldn’t change a thing


For years I’ve come to places like this to create images, to tell the story about how we love to be in the wilderness. But a few days ago I realized I wanted to be here to meditate. To walk in this field and see the mountains for themselves, not for what beauty I could extract out of them.
Taking 10 minutes out of my day to mediate has been a part of changing my life trajectory 2 degrees. A small amount right? But that little shift will land me somewhere so different when time is compounded. I find comfort in knowing it’s not about the huge drastic changes, it’s not about flipping everything on its head and doing something totally new, most of the time we just need those little 2 degrees shift in direction.
Mediating is becoming a way to put out the fires in my mind before they even start. To reframe how it see it all. To continue daily on my 2 degree shift.
What I ask myself now is how many photographs does the world need of my lovely dog? So today let’s try to not see her as a dog in a field, but instead see a photograph I created of my feeling of being. Of being in a place where the light and air fills your body from the tips of your toes and overflowing out the top of your head. Just a little reframing ✨


Neat how a crotchet blanket can take ya right back to your childhood 🎄


Being from a small Southern town I didn’t think you’d ever catch me saying this but I really love it here. It’s truly a lovely place in the world y’all. And if I had more than two nickels to rub together I’d own home right near this sand.
There’s a whole bunch of good folks out here, a lot of them I love personally. The weather is amazing. The quality of light is like no other place. Being a photographer this land makes my heart sing every sunset.
But dang it doesn’t come cheap y’all! Forever out of my budget and honestly I’m alright with that. I don’t believe a man like me is cut out for LA for too long. So I’m back to dreaming about little mountain towns, cheaper land, and open space 😊


Oh just living our best life! Editing photos off our @WDcreators My Cloud Home device, nice to be able to drop our files on it and access 'em when we are on the road. #ad #MyCloudMyRules


Raise a little cain, fall in love whenever you can, let your ears blow in the wind, drive real slow
