Time away


I spent a week completely away from the Internet to enjoy the time of our wedding and honeymoon in NYC. I will be dedicating a complete page of photos and stories, but that will be up at a later date. I did photograph some while walking around the streets of Manhattan. This is one of the photographs. 

Even though the time away from social media and website work was relaxing, I am excited to get my creative process back out to the world! 

Instagram stories


I'm loving Instagram stories! It's for sure a copy of snapchat but tons of people are on Instagram. I will still continue to use snapchat but will be focusing more on Instagram stories! If you don't follow me on Instagram yet my username is @bsmittydotcom  

Pokemon Go

I think what is great about this game is how it's made a change to the streets in the towns that I photograph. To be honest, typically around me the streets are mostly empty and a conversation with someone is rare at best. With this game it has brought out crowds, I've talked with a dozen random people this week alone. In all my time walking around, I've never felt so much positivity, happiness, and laughter from strangers. To me, that's the best part of this game.


Peak Design

Peak Design is a company I feel like I am a part of which is kind of weird because I am not. Maybe it's being a continuous Kickstarter backer, keeping up with LIVE videos, and just loving the final result of the process. I have the Peak Design Capture Pro connected to me every single day, the only other thing that has that exclusiveness is my wallet. The Everyday Messenger bag is by far the best looking messenger bag you'll find and was the stake in the world of not just camera bags, but how a bag should be made, with meticulous detail and cutting edge design. 

So here we are, a new Kickstarter campaign. This isn't just a simple product, this is yet another recreation of a product. Scratch that. Recreation of MULTIPLE PRODUCTS.  

The Everyday Backpack (2 sizes)

The Everyday Tote

The Everyday Sling

I backed The Everyday Backpack (30L) immediately after I received the email from Peak Design, it was funny because I was surprised to see 4 new products announced but at the same time I wasn't, this company really listens and is engaged with the community that they have created. 

I highly recommend checking out these bags and back this project with a bag you are into! If not share this Kickstarter link with your friends ❤️

I hope to be able to check out the Peak Design HQ someday to meet the talented crew and check out the workspace, and maybe play some ping pong.
