This weekend was insane. Got some crazy shots with @jonburkey @steve_zeinner and @aduesing1210. Started off the weekend by having my drone plummet into the Ohio river, but luckily, Jon saw it hit the water and was able to pin point it’s exact location. Steve was a trooper and walked into the River above his waist to get my drone! So HUGE shoutout to them guys for saving my drone! Other than that slight hiccup, it was a good weekend and I was able to get some pretty sick shots that I can’t wait to share with you all! What did you all do this weekend? . . . . . #keepindyindie #visitindy #igersindy #downtownindy #robertsgallerynight #rc18night #citykillerz #streets_vision #streetactivity #gramslayers #urbanandstreet #theimaged #nightphotography #longexposure_shots #longexpoelite #nightshooterz #launchdsigns #creativeoptic #visualmobs #artofvisuals #nightscape #streetscapes #serialshooters #eclectic_shotz #rsa_night #visualambassadors #dslrofficial #globe_visuals #wayfarecollective #indianapolis
You know, I’ve been reflecting a lot lately about why I started photography. Was it to find something to occupy my time, was it to be “cool” on Instagram, or was it because I truly had a passion for the art itself? Photography itself is apart of me. Without it, it’s like I’m missing something that completes me as a whole. It’s the jelly to my PB&J! Now, did I get caught up in the whole instagram “algorithm” and let It affect me? Of course. We all did. If you disagree, you are lying to yourself. We all want our images to do well, right? Well, always remember, you are not doing this for anyone else but yourself. So what if your photo gets 200 likes and the previous image you posted gets 2,000. If you like what you post and feel good about it, then that’s all that truly matters! That is why I post at random times, no theme, and with different color schemes to my photos. I post what I love. I post to share my experiences, and to document the moment. Nothing more and nothing less. Remember, you all are great photographer, despite what others say and the engagement that your pictures get on IG. Get out their and keep killing it like you do day after day! 👊🏻 . . . . . #thedarkpr0ject #illgrammers #abandonig #urbanandstreet #sombrexplore #ig_urbex #renegade_abandoned #urbexnesia_ #abandoned #abandonedplaces #abandonedafterdark #rsa_preciousjunk #gramslayers #bandorebelz #sombresociety #visualambassadors #shotzdelight #way2ill #symmetricalmonsters #urbanromantix #visualmobs #heatercentral #fatalframes #dilapidatedvisuals #theimaged #grime_lords #serialshooters
Collaboration is key! Shooting with others, will only help you grow, not only as an individual, but also as a photographer. Every single time I shoot with someone, I learn something. A lot of conceded people out there believe that if someone doesn’t have 5k, 10k, 20k, etc that they don’t know anything about photography! WRONG! The followers, the likes, and the features don’t mean crap! To be honest, some of the best work I’ve seen on the gram comes from dudes or girls that don’t have many followers, but constantly grind, put out epic content, and shoot for themselves.....NOT THE GRAM! So remember, if someone reaches out to you, compliments you, and wants to learn from you, don’t shoot them down because they have 500 followers. Obviously they wanna learn from you, idolize you, and think your work is worth something. I wish that Instagram would honestly hide the follower count from everyone. It would put more of an emphasis on the art, rather than the popularity! Do you all agree? . . . . . #keepindyindie #robertsgallerynight #RC18Night #gramslayers #depthobsessed #theimaged #serialshooters #urbanandstreet #streets_vision #streetscapes #citykillerz #streetshared #dslroffical #globe_visuals #visualambassadors #visualmobs #launchdsigns #eclectic_shotz #ourmoodydays #ourstreetdays #bokeh_shotz #canonusa #shotzdelight #streetactivity #vibegramz

I’ve had one heck of a day. First, I became a brand ambassador for @wayfare.collective , which if you know who they are and what they are about, you will understand why I am so excited. Lastly, I got asked to showcase my work at the RAW artist event in Indianapolis @ the Murat Theatre in June 20th! The event is huge featuring dozens of artists, live music, fashion show, and of course alcohol! I’d love it if you all would come out and show some support. The tickets are $20, but with the amount of entertainment involved, plus all the awesome artists, it makes it well worth it! I have added the link in my bio if you’re interested! 🙏🏻 . . . . . #keepindyindie #folkgood #depthobsessed #gramslayers #igersindy #livefolk #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #theimaged #gearednomad #ournaturedays #ourmoodydays #moodygrams #launchdsigns #visualmobs #gearednomad #wayfarecollective #rawartists #rcartistinresidence #pr0ject_uno #bokeh_shotz #creativeoptic #lensbible #earthpix #urbanandstreet #serialshooters #dslrofficial #vibegramz #hubs_united #nakedplanet

It was in October 2016 that I picked up my first camera and instantly fell in love. I had this addiction to adrenaline that made shooting abandoned places and roof-topping so thrilling and worth while. The feeling of accomplishment when I got into a location or onto a roof was unreal and can’t truly be described without experiencing it firsthand. More often than not, I found myself enjoying the experience more than the photography aspect, but loved be able to share my experiences through photos. From abandoned photography, I began to meet some awesome people who I can truly call life long friends. Since I picked up a camera, i have shot everything from abandoned, cityscapes, rooftops, products, portraits, real estate, and so much more. I never wanna stop learning and growing and not only a photographer, but also as a person! Photography truly did change my life forever! ———————————— #abandonig #abandonedafterdark #illgrammers #theimaged #renegade_abandoned #visualmobs #way2ill #abandoned #depthobsessed #gramslayers #bandorebelz
A lot of us, including myself, have gotten caught up in all the IG hype. It use to be all about likes, comments, followers, etc. What happened to doing it for the pure passion, adrenaline of capturing the moment, the pure thrill of just going out with friends and shooting? I lost site of why I started this in the first place a couple months back. I picked up a camera cause I have a passion for all things photography. Forget about the likes, the follows, the features, and all that IG hype. Shoot because you enjoy it. Don’t go out looking for what’s trendy right now to get a feature. Photograph and share what you believe is beautiful, whether it gets 200 or 3000 likes. If you truly love photography, do it for yourself, not anyone else. Do you wanna make a career out of it? If so, grind every day. Don’t give up. I believe anything is possible with hard work and dedication. Don’t, “do it for the gram” do it for yourself! 💪🏻 . . . . . #keepindyindie #downtownindy #visitindy #igersindy #robertscamera #rcartistinresidence #canonusa #depthobsessed #visualsolife #leagueoflenses #fatalframes #serialshooters #streets_vision #streetmobs #gramslayers #ourmoodydays #ourstreetdays #vibegramz #gearednomad #urbanandstreet #symmetricalmonsters #gearednomad #creativeoptic #indianapolis #eclectic_shotz
I’m gonna be taking a break from shooting and focusing on life in general. I’m feeling burnt out and need something to help get that motivation/drive to create and inspire. What do you all do to get inspiration, motivation, and just overall not get burnt out with photography? 🤔 . . . . . #droneoftheday #chicago #insta_chicago #choosechicago #leagueoflenses #dronedaily #visualsoflife #gramslayers #theimaged #artofvisuals #shotzdelight #eclectic_shotz #visualseduction #launchdsigns #droneofficial #djiglobal #symmetricalmonsters #ig_color #flyresponsibly #ourdronedaily #serialshooters #killaframez
