Life, Stuff & Things (@lifestuffandthings)

‘I’m not a photographer, I’m just a guy who likes taking photos’
📷
At the end of the day, photography has always just been something I liked doing, rather than something I am.
🤓
Without studying it academically, having extensive technical knowledge of it, being trained professionally in it, or anything of the sort, I owe it to doing it all in my own way and style through visual/conceptualisation, trial & error and the material & emotional support and belief of friends and loved ones
❤️
I should be so lucky to also learn most of what I do ‘on the job’
🔥
So here is a style and subject I really never thought I would do, portrait/model photography
🦄
Never really felt comfortable doing this as I don’t like directing people on how to look, when they look so good in situ, but I’m finding that I shouldn’t shut off other posibilities due to a narrow belief and mindset
🐥
So thanks to the encouragement and belief of a friend, Susan, we did a shoot together on Thursday and here is one of the photos from that shoot...

Learned a lot about college campuses today! Gotta fight for your rights to party.... no kidding! Gotta fight for what is right for your peers, female dorm mates, co athletes, friends in need. Basic rights to be heard about abuse etc.. Can't remain quiet, left with no say. Girls rule... boys Drool#College#safehavens #goodjudgement #friendshelpingfriends #bestrong#girlpower💪

Helped my good friends @esquestudio this weekend hanging an epic glass installation. Big installations are always tedious. This crew found their rhythm and knocked it out of the park. #ontime #goodtimes #friendshelpingfriends #makeithappen #monumental #art #pnw #portland #oregon #installation #2018 #project #graffiti #sculpture #glass #glassblowing

SWIPE to see the finished product!
Had a great time learning a new skill today. Would not have been possible without the help of a great friend @michael_c._woods .

Tonite: Showing some love and support to my homey, co-conspirator, and brotha from anotha motha! @myboyelroy is preparing to undergo an operation to remove a tumor from under his left inner ear. Fortunately, the majority of medical costs involved for this will be covered by insurance but the recovery will be long and challenging, and as a full-time musician, you might imagine how this issue might affect his ability to make a living in the short term. We're showing this kid some love and support in a little fundraising effort tonite at @swigchicago from 8pm-2am. Full info at the link below - and if you can't make it out but want to help the cause, there is a link to donate on the event page as well! Come show some love to one of the most talented, realest, and most infectiously positive dudes around. :)

I recently stumbled upon a fellow barber trying to make a difference! @upliftpomade is an organic line of men's styling product produced by a determined, and driven individual in Massachusetts. It was super cool to pick his brain a bit. Can't wait to try out these samples!

Hey! Have you been seeing all the promos & postcards Justin has been sending out lately? Hi, I made them 🙋‍♀️. I have recently fallen in love with graphic design work again and would love to help out some pals who might not have the best business cards/logos/postcards etc that they could because photoshop is hard! Message me for details...I can easily be bought with a killer pot 😎
