Dig Deep!

I moved to Idaho a few months ago.  I made a decision to start over and stop shooting nude photography. I didn’t realize that would be the start of the decisions. I started making more decisions and guess where that leads? Haha! To a complete revamp!

Decisions decisions decisions! #%$#$ Lots of them. I’ve always enjoyed my life. I had a few hard times but I am a happy person and I love taking photos more than anything else in the world!

When I moved to Idaho I expected it to be temporary. I expected to want to leave but then I started to look around and I love this area. I love the people. They’re friendly and down to earth and rude drivers.. My kind of people!

And I am a non-Mormon in a Mormon Community and I enjoy it! I can respect the LDS religion and accept that they have a lot of great qualities and values.

I want to stay here and I want to plant roots and I want to create a life here and this has nothing to do with my decision to stop photographing nudes.

The reason I’m moving in a different direction is this.. I want to shoot a different genre. I just want to focus on different things.

And yes! I still like women and I’ll start dating soon but my days of shooting 3 or 4 nude girls in a day are over! (Not gonna lie.. It’s been a blast!)

Last week I was in class for a course I am taking on marketing for photographers and the instructor said.. Yo! You can’t be an everything photographer. You have to decide on a 3 to 4 things and they need to be connected in a sense. So I thought about it for a few days and I’ve made up my mind. I’m working towards being an editorial/ commercial  photographer who focuses on Concerts/Events, Travel, and Lifestyle photography.

Ok. Excited!

And you might be thinking.. Ahh! I missed out! I won’t get to work with Ikon now! He doesn’t want to shoot with me! I wanted portraits or maybe you wanted boudoir photos or some tasteful stylish nudes. So here is the skinny of the situation! I’m still available to shoot those things.. until I get busy enough with the new stuff! It’ll take me two to three months to get started in my new areas!

So message me while you still can!

From here on out I’ve got a simple price plan for these types of sessions!

$375 for the session.

With the session you will receive a flash drive with the images. 15 to 20 edits. The option of 1 metal 11×14 print or 4 11×14 paper prints.

I will also have albums available that I will happily help you design. I can talk to you about those when we meet up! So message me and let’s get going!

Facebook or Instagram are the easiest ways to get hold of me right now!

P.S I’m also starting a digital marketing agency and the cool thing about being a photographer who runs a marketing agency? I’m sure you know what I’m getting at!

ikon-republik-1-18Ikon Republik-  I’ve lived in the desert and camped out under the stars for almost half a year! I have a van for traveling and camping. I’ve got a bed and sink in the back and I leave for weeks and travel! I love what I do! I love  meeting new people and noticing how the light hits things differently in cities that are new to me. I believe in self-sufficiency and integrity and I believe if your not living you’re dying and my ultimate goal is to leave this world in better state than I entered it in!
