Last year, I said that it was my final time attending the Detroit Electronic Music Festival as you may recall. Well, I’m back to say that I lied because yesterday, I was one of the 34,820 event attendees. I’m photographing the event again this year & I have a different a

Things that I find myself easily excited about are great service and great food. When you combine great service & great food together, I’m all in! One of my latest crazes of excitement is all over taco trucks! Food trucks are relatively new to the Detroit area & I’m

Love it or hate it, Detroit will never die although she looks like she is. And yeah, the title of this post may be a little harsh. On a recent trip to Detroit for a photo assignment, I drove through my old neighborhood. The neighborhood that I lived in when I first moved to Det
