Strange Days Have Found Us

Photography by Tom Barbee

Had the pleasure of doing a quick shoot with my buddy Knox while making a Richmond day trip. He’s stupid handsome, and I’m looking forward to shooting him again in the near future.

Here are Reasons Why I'm leaving twitter, amongst other Thoughts

  • I’m going to be 30 in a couple of months, there is no need to argue with 14 year olds
  • My politics are my politics and people who don’t agree with me are very quick to insult me over the internet
  • I’m a photographer not a writer, nobody should care what I think (I suppose this whole post is…

I’ve been at home on Long Island for a night and I’ve had a lot of time to think about things. I’m changing my life around, and I’m going to be less public about it. The reason I have this tumblr is for you all to enjoy my photographs, or make fun of them, it’s up to you. I enjoyed twitter, but I realized it’s not important. It will help me keep my phone off of the table while talking to friends, and will help me not get annoyed at reading someone’s political/activist tweet. A lot of people invest way too much time on twitter and social media, that they lose out on so much of life. That’s why I’m getting rid of it and taking my 3 legged dog to the park on this beautiful saturday.

Keep it here.

Many of these reasons are why I deleted my FaceBook a while ago, and have strongly considered deleting both IG, and Tumblr. I’d like to revert back to real connections/communication.

Some first picks from a headshot session with the handsome William Moody. Color photo is straight out of camera. B&W photo may as well be, too, honestly.

A couple photos shot on 35mm film cameras.

Quite the turn out for the 3rd annual, but first “official” (meaning there were actually permits and all that garbage) Logstradamus. I can’t wait to see what happens in the coming years!

Can you believe it? This kid skipped his own graduation to surf in this fun-filled competition. Ahhh, who am I kidding, I would have done the same thing.
