Pulling 8 MP Stills from 4K Video on the Sonoma Raceway

Last weekend I shot some 4K video footage using the Lumix GH4 with the intent of extracting eight megapixel still frames from it. It's not easy shooting race cars, but when you do get it, it looks goooood…

Daedalus, Greeters, and a Ribbon Cutting!

Last week I had the official "ribbon cutting" for my photo studio, hosted the local Chamber of Commerce meeting, and turned a photo booth into an impromptu AIDS benefit photo shoot. Fun all around!

Anatomy of an Interior Design Composite

Often when we look at a well crafted photograph, it can be impossible to know just went into it, and as a client (or potential client), difficult to understand why a seemingly "simple" image can cost so much to create. In this video, I showed what went into the extensive composite that made this beautiful interior design photo possible.

Fútbol! The Global Sport, Even in the Rift Valley

Pokot children in Kenya, Africa, playing with a very worn out football. Shot in 2007 on assignment for a humanitarian organization.

Client Approval While on Location with LUMIX GX7 and iPad mini

The ability to not only preview images on a big screen, but create HDR composites, perspective correction and even sky replacement on the iPad makes the combination of a Micro Four Thirds camera like the Panasonic LUMIX GX7 and an iPad an unbeatable combination!

Sunset Photo; GX7 & iPad mini FTW!

A chanced-upon sunset at the last possible moment, a GX7 and iPad mini went into this lovely photo

Hong Kong – A Foodie Tourist’s Travel Guide

Hong Kong is quite simply one of my favorite cities in the world. It's diverse and dynamic, exciting and exotic, sensual and surreal, delicious and delightful… I could go on and on and on. And in fact, I do! This post is full of tasty treats, so jump on in and have a nibble.

Using 2nd-Curtain (Rear Curtain) Flash Sync with Studio Strobes and Canon Cameras

Rear curtain sync, or having the strobe fire at the end of a long exposure, is the desired way to capture long-exposure motion 99% of the time when using a strobe. Unfortunately it's not so easy to do if you are using studio strobes—but it is possible.

Interviewed on the Indie Travel Podcast

I was recently interviewed by Craig Martin of the Indie Travel Podcast, talking about my trip to Vietnam, the trend towards smaller, lighter cameras, iPads, and more!

Fogged In

A little fog on a winter evening should never slow down your wine tasting… unless of course it's to make a few photos along the way!

Mercedes-Benz Social Media Shoot

I was part of a team shooting for Mercedes-Benz for their social media marketing in New York and Los Angeles for a week. We had an absolute blast and made some killer photos along the way!

New Video Collection

I didn't realize how many videos I'd had my hands on until I started pulling together a list for a potential client… and now have quite the assembly here on this site!

Article in Russian "Voyage" Magazine

An "interview" of sorts with me is in the current issue of the Russian "Voyage" magazine. It's a bit about me, and a lot about editing techniques, tips, and so-on. The published article is a dramatically shortened version (in Russian of course) of what I submitted, so I'm sharing my unedited original response (in English!) here.

For those in Ashland, last Saturday was the big Kattywampus Circus Spectacular put on by the Curious Conspiracy. I was the photographer there at the VIP entrance and with the photo booth, and all those photos are now online! Check 'em out here…

The Leica S2 on the Oregon Coast, part 3

This photo is almost straight out of camera; very minor adjustments were made to it. While this image shows some of the impressive capabilities of the Leica camera, it may also show some weaknesses. I wonder what you think…

The Leica S2 on the Oregon Coast, part 2

When one whispers to horses, they whisper back. No not really… but if the horses are friendly they will come right up and say HI! HI!! HI!!!! and not give you quite the casual horses-in-the-field photo you wanted. But in this case, the Leica S2 proved it's worth and delivered a gorgeous image.

The Leica S2 on the Oregon Coast, part 1

A shiny new Leica S2 + the Oregon coast in winter = a beautiful, beautiful combination! I'll be posting a series of photos from this trip, talking about the camera, the process, the comparisons, and anything else I can think of.
