Habitat for...

This is an outtake from a story about a new Habitat house in Rosebush. I didn't think it was appropriate to the story, but it's good for the blog.

Cuteline: Mt. Pleasant resident Corey Snow, 19, waits for materials Thursday afternoon while working on a new Habitat for Humanity house in Rosebush. The house is being built for Jason and Amanda Baird and their family. Jason is currently serving overseas with the U.S. Army Reserves.


This was my first time shooting a portrait of eleven people. Click here for the article.

Project Pedal

I usually reserve this blog for my own work, but sometimes you run across something everyone should know about. For the past several years Mike Ambs has been working on a documentary about a cross country cycling trip. As an independent filmmaker he's run into countless hurdles and had his share of setbacks, but the film continues to move forward. For more information and an intro to the project, click here.

My cousin Jason showed me the project a few years ago and I've been following the film's progress since. There is also a behind the scenes look at the making of the film the first few episodes of which can be seen here.
