Burning Man 2014

It was another awesome Burning Man for 2014. This year’s theme was Caravansary which kept the Man simple but yet the tallest Man ever erected. The actual burn of the Man took forever because they built that thing so well!

It was my third year and every year is always exciting and different. It was also interesting to go back to back as I went last year but my first time was back in 2007. I love the culture and experience of it all. One of my favorite things about being there is just connecting to people. I love to just wander and explore and just have conversations with strangers. The conversations that exist there with people you just meet are beyond what you could ever imagine. Its incredible and I wish it was as easy to have that opportunity every day.

It was also super cool to be contacted by Djoke and Richard to be their wedding photographer beforehand! I would love to go back every year to photograph a wedding there. Hint hint for my fellow Burners!

One thing that was different for me this year was the fact that most of these photos were actually taken with the Olympus OMD EM-5. I had a 12mm, 24mm, and a 45mm lens and it was so much lighter than carrying my DSLR everywhere I went!

Expecting the 2nd baby

It is always great to see Jeannine and Fernando and have the opportunity to photograph them. It’s so awesome to photograph a couple get married, their maternity session, newborn pictures, and then the second maternity session and see their kid grow up! Whats really cool is that they waited to know the gender of their first child and they enjoyed it so much that they are going to do it again with the second child! I can’t wait to see whether it will be a boy or a girl!
