Surf Photography-County Line California

It’s been a while since I ventured out to spend a morning shooting surfing. So when my friend Darren said it was going to be a good day to surf…I took his word and went to County Line for a few snaps. Tech info: Canon 7D w/Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 lens Click any images for the larger

The Eastern Sierras

I’ve been driving North on Highway 395 and visiting the Eastern Sierras for most of my adult life. Always wanting to stop during the five hour drive to check out all of the little side roads figuring out what they have to offer, I never had in the past. This trip was like the rest,

Sometimes I write…..

Until recently, our relationship over the last forty years has been very one sided. I’ve probably been more a part of your life than much of your family. I remember when you were just a young boy and you would visit my friends in the desert, riding motorcycles and exploring the endless landscapes. Laughing at

Is the Camelbak Mule perfect? It might be….

While this post isn’t necessarily photography related, it does include a large part of my life that usually involves my photography..mountain biking… I’ve been mountain biking much longer than I’ve been taking photos and as soon as I could manage to bring a camera with me on rides…I did. The whole idea for this post

Kristian Atkins Steps Up-Mountain Bike Photoshoot

I’ve had the pleasure of shooting Kristian on his bike a few times in the past year or so…and each time he mentioned “the step up jump” that I needed to check out. If someone with Kristians skill set tells you to check something out, you probably should. Well unless he is suggesting you check

Mountain bike photography-Spring in SoCal

All of the extra rain this year in Southern California has been a double edged sword…On one side the hills look amazing and you want to go out and shoot…on the other the rain didn’t let up long enough for everything to dry. Eventually everything lined up and I was able to get the riders,

Mountain Biking in Moab Utah – Leaving the camera behind

In each of my past five trips to Moab I’ve brought along my big SLR camera and one lens. The added weight on my back seemed a fair trade off for the opportunity to grab great photos. It is a large effort to interrupt your riding flow, hop off your bike, get to the bottom

The Book Of Daniel

I recently had a project working with the creative team at my church to come up with ideas that fit along with the book of Daniel. I had a request to capture an image to show that God can meet you anywhere…that you don’t have to go to a certain place or it doesn’t have

Mountain bike photography-Riders making it look easy…

Sometimes when you plan a shoot things do go as planned. In my last post I wrote about and posted photos of when things go wrong. When shooting the photos below everything went as planned and I think I had the easy task of the day. The riders were the ones who had to listen

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
