The Quality of the Story

By | Fine Art, Photography | No Comments

Too many times we (myself included) love to rush into the technical/production aspect of whatever we are trying to create, when we should really be focusing more on the quality of our story first. It’s a unique problem in ‘still-image’ visual arts (for example, writers don’t have this problem. They are completely focused on story). We love to create ‘the…

Second Star To The Right

By | Photography | No Comments

How To Shoot The Milky Way We took a family trip to Sedona, Arizona last month. Of course, you might be thinking “why would you go to Arizona in the middle of the summer?” I thought the same thing. Actually, it wasn’t too bad. Yes it was hot in the middle of the day. But it’s a dry heat. We spent so…

Rob Thomas for REAL Magazine

By | Photography | No Comments

I’ve been waiting to talk about this shoot all year. When REAL Magazine asked me sometime in March if I’d be interested in shooting Rob Thomas, I jumped at the chance. Now, I know exactly what you are thinking. No, not that Rob Thomas (although he’s on my list too). This Rob Thomas is the creator of the show Veronica…

Wading Giraffes

By | Photography | No Comments

I’ve had this image in my head for a while now. I’m not sure where it started, but I remember that I photographed the ocean in Hawaii last year. Once I had the idea, I started collecting giraffe images where I saw them. Some of the giraffes here are from Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and some are from the San Diego…

Think of every creative service industry that’s been affected by a transition to digital: photography, music, art, advertising, etc. They’ve all been inundated with new talent that’s able to learn and produce at a rapid pace. If…

It’s Christmas Card Time

By | Family & Friends, Photography | No Comments

It’s almost October, if you can believe it. Fall is practically here. And around this time every year, I start my Christmas card work for families and businesses. It started a few years back when we sent our infamous diner image as our Christmas card. Since then, I’ve enjoyed creating similar holiday cards for my clients. Each of them tells…

One on One, Part One.

By | Photography | One Comment

Debbie emailed me last November from Atlanta. She’s a wedding photographer and was looking for ways to change things up in her lighting and the post-processing of her work (including her portrait work as well). A “creative bootcamp”, as she put it, in her initial email. She asked if I did any workshops. I didn’t have any plans for one…

Building a Portfolio Book

By | Photography | 3 Comments

I recently finished putting together my portfolio book, and I’d like to share a little walkthrough of it. The process of putting this together was longer than I had originally planned. It all started by going through images from the last few years and figuring out what worked. A lot of this process was with Natalie Ogura, who has a…
