Insomnia Has Its Benefits

What happens when you wake up at 4am and cant get back to sleep?  You redo your website.  New layout, new front page banner imagery, new vibe.

What do you think? I’d love your feedback below.

My Muse, My Brother, My Friend

In this World we live in, we strive to connect with others to form Friendships. These Friendships are what help define who we are by the experiences we share. In the case of my Life, it was March 7, 2009 that I met a complete stranger and Artist that I am now lucky enough to be able to call my Muse, my Brother, my Friend: Russell Taylor, aka Satori Circus.

Satori Circus 30th Anniversary Show

Russ, this picture, captured at the end of your last performance on Saturday night, is my absolute favorite. You on stage, the crowd mesmerized; it screams to me in all its silence and simplicity. I shot your entire show with a very specific lens, one that hyper focuses in the middle and blurs around the edges. I did this on purpose because it embodies what I think of when it comes to your artistry: It isn’t always clear what the message is, and you have to do a little bit of soul-searching to figure things out on your own. Thank you for the challenge all these years.

Congratulations on your 30 years, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me be a small part of it for the past 9 years, and for ALWAYS being a cheerleader for my own creative endeavors. I look forward to what the future holds and what adventures await.
Your Friend, Always, Brett

It was a busy late Summer and Fall season for me with quite a few Seniors to photograph.  To those Families that spread the word about my services and to those students who gave me their All, I thank you.  Being a part of documenting this time in Amanda, Austin, Sean, Alex, and Jack’s Lives truly is an Honor.

True Friends

There are people that you run across in Life that completely change everything.

These two are at the top of my list.

These photographs, done on the spur of the moment while working on a video project with them, is the best way I can express to them my Gratitude and Love for everything they have taught me.

Welcome to, redux


As they say, the mechanic always has the worst-looking car in the neighborhood.  Well, I guess the same can be said for me, at least in terms of finally getting a website up and running that I can manage and manipulate on a regular basis.  I always place everyone else as a higher priority, but now is the time to focus on ME.  So, please be patient, have a look around, and I encourage your input on my imagery, as well as my (hopefully) daily blog posts and photography. -BJL
