    • lapetitefaon

      I looked on his site because I was like “they look kind of like the pacific northwest…” and it turns out most of these were taken in the midwest! but that’s sort of the beauty they all feel so familiar, its very much Any Town, USA!

      • Actually, the ones selected here are either in Minnesota, Chicago, or Connecticut. Although many photographs on my website are from upstate new york…

    • stalker

      He went to school in upstate new york.

      • lapetitefaon

        isn’t Minnesota and Chicago…the midwest? beautiful work where ever!

  • wow

  • great set, but that first one is outtaathisworrrlddd!

  • the 2nd from the top is amazing.

  • I spontaniously shouted “heeeeeere’s Johnny” when I saw the second photo

  • Don Corleone

    I agree with Garrett Perry. The second from the top is amazing.

  • Greg Fatbert

    This guy slangs pics like a dealer slangs crack. This is the present and future of photography.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December


Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.


Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
