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

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

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
