I was at Burning Man for 5 days this year, camped at Esplanade & A (Honey Puddle). One of our neighbors was the incomparable Death Guild Thunderdome, and as in 2017, I took the vast majority of my photographs during two nights of fighting there. Shooting action shots with a manual focus is a really fun challenge. I have a very shallow depth of field and I shot wide open, so my photos are a little soft, but enjoy!
Since last year’s Freedom Fest photos took a year to get out, I figured I’d turn this set around in a month!
I had the pleasure of attending both Freedom Fest and AnarchoVegas in July. Unfortunately, I started getting sick at the beginning of the week – Freedom Fest started on Wednesday and I had panels on Friday and Saturday, but I spend a lot of time in my hotel room trying to medicate and rest and take care of myself, so I didn’t get as many pictures as I wanted to.
I had the pleasure of speaking on several panels at Freedom Fest, and attending several others, including a great main stage speech and interview featuring Penn Jillette and Glenn Beck.
I’ve been attending Freedom Fest since 2012, and it’s one of my favorite liberty events of the year mostly because it feels like going home. Vegas is a really fun environment for a conference, and there are a lot of people I only get to see at that particular conference.
This is not going to be a new tradition, I swear, but I did this last year too — I didn’t take a lot of photos at Freedom Fest in 2018 and so I didn’t get around to making an album until literally the day before Freedom Fest 2019. (By the way, yay! Freedom Fest! Happening tomorrow!)
Both Judd and I spoke at Freedom Fest 2018, but we didn’t get as many pictures as we usually do, so we did another combination album like last year.
This year was my 4th Anarchapulco. It was also my first in which I was a main stage speaker. The previous three Anarchpulcos, I have been one of the official photographers of the event – my photos can be found on my Facebook – 2018, 2017 (on Judd’s Facebook, I was his second shooter), 2016. If you saw my speech, you may have noticed I used photos of Anarchapulco (both from 2017 & 2018) from both Judd and myself (mostly him), as the background images in my presentation.
I love Anarchapulco. Every year has been a blast – lots of fun, good people, good energy, and a little bit of a vacation. I spend at least one day at the beach or the pool, skipping speeches and just enjoying the environment with mojitos and good conversation.
So, last year, at Anarchapulco 2018, my beloved Judd Weiss and I took photos for the event. I helped him with selecting choice shots from the thousands of photos he took, and sent him *my* small selection of fully edited … Continue reading @Anarchapulco 2018 #Anarchapulco
From June 30th to July 4th this year, I had the pleasure of attending the Libertarian National Convention in New Orleans. It was so great seeing so many friends online and offline, and the convention committee put together a great event (besides the main room being too cold). I spoke on a panel on Social Media, I was a delegate for the state of California, and I took about 7,000 photos while I was there.
Over the last 4 weeks I’ve been selecting, editing, and preparing a photo album for release. This is my biggest individual album I’ve ever done. Continue reading “2018 Libertarian National Convention Photos & Donation Info!”
I still haven’t found a recording of my speech (perhaps there is none), but Judd and I finally edited and published our shots from the Free State Project’s summer event: Porcfest. He published them in an album which you can … Continue reading PorcFest 2017 Photos
