Love the film but I wish I had a model to shoot. I'm starting to dislike being alone all the time when shooting pictures like this.

Historic Clarkdale, Arizona is a couple of miles from Cottonwood.

I've been so busy with my commercial work that I haven't had time for my personal photography. I apologize, but I have to run with the work when it comes. Thank you for sticking with me.

I went to Cottonwood, Arizona over the weekend to support my friends at the Tilt Gallery. Since I’m represented by the Tilt, I want to support them however I can. The owners opened a new gallery in Cottonwood, Arizona called Tilt on the Road. The owners wanted to try something new outside of Phoenix. They now have a beautiful space on Main Street in Old Town historic Cottonwood. It's really pretty cool since some of the local wineries have opened wine tasting rooms and fine dinning restaurants are now opened for business. Historic Cottonwood is going through a rebirth and becoming a hip little town.

I got to Cottonwood a little early around 3pm and drove around to find some interesting places. I remember when I went to Northern Arizona University we used to swim in the Verde River in this area. It's a very quit historic community where time sort of stands still. These are just a few of the locations that I found interesting in the short time I was there.
