Passions: Pentley Holmes

Life can be strange sometimes. Peoples’ lives cross in unexpected ways. When we were kids, Pentley Holmes and I shared a bus stop at the half point between our houses. Then he moved to P’burg and I didn't see him for a long time. Around high school, I started to ride BMX and I started to see Pentley around again since he also rode at the time. After a few years, he started music and really immersed himself in playing and learning music. It was a rarity when I would catch him out somewhere. Back when I started photography around 6 years ago, he was one of the first people I did some photos and videos for while he performed in a little basement venue. This past Saturday, I met him at the State Theatre in Easton, PA and shot photos and videos for him in the nicest venue in town. He’s had an awesome journey in music thus far and I thought he’d be a perfect person to talk with.

When my friend Ron and I were planning on our trip to California, I knew this would be an amazing place to check out.

So I started to think, why should I attempt to portray a gruesome scene when I could shoot a suspenseful scene and have the viewer fill in the rest. I tried to think of times where people could be vulnerable or just plain distracted, hence the name, Cautionary Tales.
