Late Monday night, one of the items on my bucket list was struck off. Not because I finally accomplished it, but because the opportunity was taken away...Read More
Recently, a friend came up to me and said he's inspired by how passionate I am about photography. He wished he had something in his life he could be as passionate about.
“But I'm just not that passionate about anything.” He said.
“No, I’m sure there’s something." I reply.
“No, there’s nothing." (Eeyore face)
I then asked him about the things he enjoys and tried to help him find something. Then I kind of gave up because he seemed really resigned about it. And I really hadn't thought all that much about how I found mine.Read More
I didn't expect there would be a continuation of the award-winning 'Shot on iPhone 6' ad campaign. I am very grateful to be a part of it again. This time, it is even more special to me because it is a photo of my son. I love to involve my sons in my photography. The three of us often go exploring on the weekends and take fun photos. This was during one of those times.
The photo was taken just before Halloween last year. We were wandering around lost in a maze of corn...Read More
During the holidays I took a trip to Arches National Park in Moab, Utah. For the first time in a long time the focus of the trip was photography! I learned quite a bit about shooting at Arches so I thought I'd share a few of those tips with you. So here are 5 tips on how to make the most of photographing such a unique national park. You can thank me later for making all the mistakes so you don't have to. :PRead More
Well, I guess it was bound to happen. Getting sick. I woke up this morning with a sore throat, a sore body and thoughts of canceling my train adventure to Utah. I know, what? Cancel an adventure? I must feel really awful.Read More
Guess what? I'm teaching an online class through Skillshare.com on how to shoot and edit video using your iPhone.
I'm really excited to be teaching this class. I've been wanting to teach this class for a while. I've had many people ask me for tips and tools to use for taking photos as well as shooting video using their iPhone so this was a great way for me to address and help a wider audience...Read More
I was woken up Sunday morning by tree branches pounding against the side of my house. It was a rainy windy day.
I got up and made coffee. As I stared out the window I thought hey, this rain and wind could make for some great photos. I mean, everyone takes photos in great weather, but how many landscapes do you see bathed in rain and disheveled by wind? So after finishing up my coffee, I packed up raincoats for myself, my camera and my backpack. This was going to be epic!Read More
I finally got a chance to head up to Mt. Tamalpais for a sunrise shoot yesterday. Thanks to @LarryNienkark for sending me the “Tam Cam" links, I was able to view the Mt. Tam web camera at 5 am in the morning to see if it was a go or no go. It was a go. Part of me hoped it would be a no go. The weather folks said it would start raining at 6 am. It was only 5:30 am. It would take me an hour to get there. Would it start raining as soon as I got there?Read More
I know it’s been over a month since my last post. September was so hectic. I was in a place of my life where I was trying to figure out how to make this photography thing work. I’m happy to say that I’ve been able to make room for it in my life, where I am now working part-time as a designer and part-time as a freelance photographer. I still can’t believe I’ve pulled it off. I’m so lucky to have these opportunities.
Now that things have settled, I’m finally able to pick up where I left off with some of my photography projects. And today, I was able to get up before sunrise and execute a self-portrait shoot that I’ve been planning for a while.Read More
