Introducing the New Endpin Packaging

I’ll admit it, I still have a ton of stuff stashed away at my parents’ house. Boxes of stuffed animals, old mixed tapes, my favorite movies on VHS – even a stray fanny pack or two. I have tried to clean out some of these things, but it’s so hard to part with, or find somewhere else to store these memories from my childhood.

Yes, I’m currently in Las Vegas. It’s not my favorite place, but I’m here for the WPPI conference.

During this time, I’ve been asked how I travel with my photo equipment. So here’s how I travel:

  3. With a ghetto bag for everyday use.

I’m excited to announce the launch of my new website (including the blog) under the new branding of Endpin Photo!

A big thank you to Kyle Wai Lin for his slick work on the new logo.  If you guys are looking for a graphic designer, check him out.  Not only is he good at what he does, but he’s just a genuinely nice guy.
