Mountain bike photo shoot-When things dont go as planned

In my years of shooting I’ve had things go wrong. Forgetting batteries, forgetting camera settings, or just missing the shot. But I hadn’t had anything go wrong with my subject until a couple weeks ago. I’ve shot photos of Ben in the past and he is an amazing rider. On this day we started off

2016 US Olympic Team Trials – Marathon

Not often you have a chance to watch the Olympic trails and since they were a short way away in downtown L.A I thought I’d head out for a look. Brutally warm for February and it was amazing to watch these athletes power through over 26 miles.

A man and his motorcycle

It’s always fun to shoot something that someone else is passionate about. I’ve loved everything on two wheels since I was a kid and when I found out my friend Bruce was putting together a sort of “frankenbike” I knew we had to get together for some photos. I also asked Bruce to write a

When people steal your photos and sell them on @amazon.com

I’ve been down this road before where someone takes one of my images as their own and does what they want with it. I’ve blogged on this in the past (Part 1 Part 2 and Part 3) So I guess this is part four. This one stings a bit more as it’s currently being sold

Mountain bike photography-Southern California

One of the up sides of living in SoCal is the great weather and I can pretty much plan a photo shoot for any weekend. It really comes down to getting everyone together on the same day to make it happen. I was lucky enough to have two great riders (Travis and Ben) and one sherpa

Indoors for a change…

I’ve taken photos of Travis for a number of years now and we’re always in the hills somewhere with me behind the camera and him doing something awesome on his bike. Travis recently rebuilt his downhill bike and asked me for a photo of it before it got beat up. I don’t shoot indoors too often

California Fall Colors

The term “Fall Colors” didn’t mean much to me growing up in Southern California…really because I thought only the east coast people got to enjoy them. Come to find out we’ve got a little bit of it going on in California too. These were taken in the Mammoth Lakes area. Camera: Canon 7D Lens: Tokina

Want to learn all the options on your camera? Go shoot BMX

It’s been a while…err…years since I’ve ventured out to the BMX track to shoot. You could say I felt a bit out of place. While I used to be a staple at Sycamore BMX, I felt like a stranger. And I’ll admit some of the camera settings I used to set without looking were hard

California’s Central Coast

Had the chance to spend a few days along California’s Central Coast. While many people find the pace of life here a bit too slow, I’d be thrilled to spend many more days exploring all it has to offer. We based our selves out of the small town of Cambria which I quickly fell in
