Decided to make my Leica M6 an everyday carry and see what turns out. Posting one photo per day a month delayed.

"Towns are full of people, houses full of tenants, hotels full of guests, trains full of travelers, cafes full of customers, parks full of promenaders, consulting-rooms of famous doctors full of patients, theatres full of spectators, and beaches full of bathers. What previously was, in general, no problem, now begins to be an everyday one, namely, to find room." - Jos

Final clean up and finally booty shot. Farewell dear friend you kept me quite well for 5 years.

justbrootal said: Don't mean to sound brash, but who do you work for? How do you make money doing what you do? I'm extremely interested and a huge fan, I didn't know you had a Tumblr and recently just found out. I'm curious because I want to know, do you freelance or just do this for fun and then have a side job? Thanks for doing what you do and allowing us to see your work that you post here. A big inspiration. Much love brother.

Haha. Not brash at all. I run the LA arm of a tech company called Rocket Science Consulting and work in the entertainment industry. I started up with photography again when I was an editor for a living and hated it so I needed something to inspire me again and so I got out my old film cameras and started shooting agin. Photography is what keeps me sane. Ive debated trying to take it more as a career, however, once you go that route you lose control over what you shoot. So for me Im plenty happy with having a job and a passion. 

As things evolve those two may join, and there are a few things in the works behind the scenes that may change that, or may bring in some new stuff all together; but for me my photography is very intentionally just that. MY photography. Not photography for hire. 

Hope that helps!
