Recently I had a good long look through some of my grunge photos spanning several years of photographic dedication. Of all the strange, creepy, and off-the-wall places I’ve wandered into for the purposes of taking photographs, one thing remains the same; for whatever reason, I almost always come across some unusual, unexpected, and sometimes even bizarre discoveries. The photos I’ve selected are just a small portion of what I have on Flickr, but they are what I consider to be some of the best examples of unique and unusual discoveries.
Every photographer must, at one time or another, place themselves in an awkward situation to get the kinds of shots they are looking for. I’ve had the unique opportunity to place myself in some very strange and sometimes risky situations in hopes of getting that one elusive shot. The comments that people leave on my Flickr stream and on my blog are what inspire me and make the process worthwhile.

My company specializes in writing, photography, and website design. My father gave me my first camera when I was a small child, and it quickly became my most prized possession. I was also fascinated with exploring places others rarely ever ventured, such as abandoned places, buildings, and railroad cars.
As time went on, I formed a business centered around my passion; living larger-than-life adventures, and sharing the photographic journey on my website.
