Hey bloggers!! As I mentioned numerous times on my blog before I am in the MAD Academy, but for you new comers I’ll give a brief explanation! The MAD Academy is a multimedia arts design academy. This year as a junior, I will be focusing on photography. My passion! My first project in my photo class is based on “inspiration.” Meaning we have to photograph photos based on our favorite photographer and their genre. My favorite photographer is Chris Burkard. Throughout the years I have expanded my love and knowledge for photography. About over a year ago I came across the photographer Chris Burkard. Chris is an American self-taught photographer who shoots landscape, lifestyle, surf, outdoor, and travel. His work is a photojournalistic approach. Burkard’s career started off as a freelance photographer on both editorial and commercial projects. At the age of 21 he served as the senior staff photographer for Surfline, a surf forecasting site. Chris is 27 years old now and still expanding his portfolio and bringing smiles to many faces.

The images below our my own “Chris Burkard” photos with my best friend Anna modeling for me. Hope you enjoy! Comment below for your favorite type of photography and I would love to try and photograph them for you!

xoxo Taylor.

Sup bloggers! After a long weekend I’m back and ready to blog. This past weekend was Memorial weekend as we all know. Thank you to all of you for risking your lives to make this country a better country. We all love and miss you dearly.

This past weekend was beautiful here in Santa Barbara and of course I took advantage of that and went to the beach every single day I could. On Saturday my good friend Mali and I headed down to our little spot. (Hope Ranch Beach) HR is a very exclusive beach and you need a gate key in order to go in. The reason I love this beach so much is that it is so clean and not crowded at all! You have the whole beach and water to yourself which is amazing! No silly tourists! I thought that I would bring out my fish board to have a little fun in the water. Why not right?! It was a great little day of waves and fun to mess around on board and get a great exercise while having fun.

Comment below and tell me what you did this Memorial weekend!

We Trashy

Morning bloggers! Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend! This past Friday the academy I am apart of had a beach clean up to earn community service hours and to give back to the community and do a good deed. After school we were supposed to all head down the a local beach, Leadbetter. From there we met up with the whole academy and they assigned clean up teams and we went to work. My team was quite the team and we picked up 4 pounds worth of trash. Pretty good since we were only cleaning up for 30 minutes. The trash consisted of many cigarette buds and Styrofoam  Now after spending an afternoon giving back to the community I realized that once in a while we should take time away from our busy schedules and help out the community and the Earth we live on 😉 Nothing worse then to live on a dirty planet. I highly recommend for you to get a group of your friends and go down to your city hall and and schedule a community clean up and help out. I promise you it will make a difference. Even if its for only 15 mins.

xoxo Taylor.
