Available Now - 2017 Calendar
Years in the Making
This calendar is more than just a collection of images to me - it's blood, sweat, and tears. It's years of late nights shooting for hours on end, then waking up to my young kids at all hours (sometimes right as I'm finally getting to sleep after a late night post-shooting Milky Way edit), then snoozing early alarms to go work day a job.
But the journey to this point was never about making a calendar or selling a canvas. It was about experiencing the vastness of the night sky, capturing images of that, and learning how to do it in my own way. It was about experimenting with techniques, discovering new wonders, and trying to tell that story with a static image. And sometimes it was just about being outside, in the cool air of the Central Coast with the silence of the stars being interrupted only by the crashing of the waves.
Join me on a photographic journey of the Central Coast of California after dark.

About the Design
This is a 12 month calendar with a saddle-stitched type binding, rather than the spiral binding pictured in the mock-up above. I chose the saddle stitching so that multiple calendars would lay flat and stack nicely inside shipping envelopes. My primary goal for the project design was to simply highlight the images. Since I'm not a graphic designer by trade, I kept the page layout simple and the information at the bottom of each image unobtrusive. Each month's image features a bottom caption area featuring my logo, the image title, and my website address in the event you would like to order a print. Below is a sample month page.
If you have a moment and feel inclined to share this project, I would be incredibly grateful. Thank you for stopping by!
