Mac English: Squirrel Hunting in South Carolina

“I’m 77 years old and I’m still out here chasing these squirrels. I always have done it.”

We traveled down to South Carolina just about a year ago to spend two days in Sumter National Forest hiking, hunting, photographing and filming none other than Mac English, a champion squirrel hunter. We were out there in the woods – far out there. It was quite the experience, but all things considered, I’d go back and join a hunt any day.

Double Weekly Wrap-up, November 28th – December 9th


First off an apology – Forgive me for missing out on a weekly wrap up last week. We were in the middle of an awesome editorial shoot up in NYC all day on Friday and I didn’t get the chance to properly write about the week. That being said, the past fourteen days have been pretty crazy, with editorial projects and an advertising shoot down in Miami.

As usual, I can’t get into too many details quite yet, but we’ve got a handful of shots from the last few weeks, keep reading to check out what’s been going on.

Hawaii Shoot Day Fourteen: Two Weeks In

It’s been two weeks. Almost five thousand miles and five time zones away from home base back in Philadelphia. When you hit the two week mark in a place like this, despite the technology, despite our iPhones and laptops, you can’t help but feel a certain sense of disconnect. Feeling that sense of separation from the everyday maybe makes it easier to appreciate the beautiful scenery and make a great photos.  Either way, every morning the sunrise still manages to impress and inspire.
