So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted to my design blog and for good reasons. First, I’ve been working as a teacher for Osceola County teaching all things digital and web. It’s been a fun process teaching the students and a challenge figuring out how to communicate many years of knowledge in small, digestible formats. Along with teaching I’ve also been taking classes at Valencia College to earn my teaching certificate – I’m finishing the last five classes as I type this. Now that summer has arrived it’s time to get caught up in my own business. Most of the projects I’ve done as of lately have been web updates, so unfortunately I don’t have much to share. I did just complete a website for an engineering company under an advertising agency I team with. With all of this said, it’s time to pick up business once again.

Although I don’t offer wedding photography as a service, I had to share this image I made last week. My cousin, who recently got married in Athens, Georgia, wanted an image wearing her wedding gown on the beach. After some begging and pleading I obliged, and this is the outcome. The moon was at the perfect height and an off camera flash provided the perfect light source. The veil was held down by two cousins and released as the image was taken. Something different!

Last month Marisha and I took a long weekend to Roanoke, Virginia for my cousin’s wedding. On the way we stopped overnight in Savannah and enjoyed a nice dinner at the Fiddler’s Crab House on Bay Street.
The next morning we took off early in the morning and started the drive towards Roanoke. The view along the road was gorgeous, especially when we got up into the mountains. By late afternoon we arrived in Roanoke and found our way to the Hotel Roanoke right in downtown.
Once in Roanoke we got a chance to explore the downtown area. Marisha and I had a wonderful breakfast at Tudor’s Biscuit World and then we walked through the farmer’s market and enjoyed the architecture in the area. Of particular interest was the Taubman Museum of Art with it’s contemporary architecture designed by Randall Stout.

Sorry if you’re having problems accessing or finding items on my website. This weekend I decided it was time to re-evaluate the website and take it to the next level. I’ve formally adopted WordPress as my CMS for the new site and built a new template to display my entire site. While I couldn’t finish the entire site this weekend, I was able to get the posts up and running and start designing the portfolio pages. Within the next week I should have the site finished up and ready to show it off.
Also, as a side note, Marisha and I went to see Gabriel Inglesias at the Hard Rock Live in Universal. We had a great time, and a lot of good laughs with his Fluffy Shop Tour. If you get a chance, check him out.

It’s back to work today after enjoying a week off in South Carolina with the family. As usual, we stayed in a beach house at Litchfield beach, which is just south of Mrytle Beach. The week is filled with the traditional beach activities which include: floating, surfing, reading, napping, drinking, fishing, etc. As always, one of my favorite trips of the year.
And now, after being refreshed, it’s time to get back to work. It’s going to be a busy week this week. I have a final this evening for Career Management, as well as a Finance Final next week. I also have some projects I’ve completed that I’d like to post on here also. So, be sure to check back in the near future.

Check out the photo from my backyard as the storms approached last night. Thankfully it wasn’t too bad at the house, but the news cut all the programming to track the storm as it moved across Central Florida.

I just came across this on Von Glitschka’s blog Art Backwash, and I had to repost it. All I can say is cheap fonts suck!

Wow… That was one impressive lightning storm we had last night. Everywhere you looked, there was lightning flying through the sky. What better time to grab a metal tripod, open the garage and sit with a camera – and a beer. Shame the batteries were almost dead when I started, I could have made an entire series right outside the garage.

I’m finally back on the Internet at home. No more having to leech off family members or sit in Panera Bread. It feels good to have my office back!

I just want to apologize to my clients for the slower response times over the past few weeks. As most of you know, we’ve been experiencing difficulties with our HOA & our service providers. To help ease the communication issues, I have purchased an iPhone so I can remain in contact while in my home studio. Hopefully this will be solved soon and I’ll be able to return to the same level of service. If you’d like to read more about these issues please visit www.turnberryreserve.com.
