Some times I forget I am a photographer

Sometimes I forget that one reason I started this blog, is because I am a a photographer. As a photographer, I get to meet several interesting people, like “Outlaw Rose” who was once a sheep herder. My wife and I met Outlaw Rose at a wayside near Alamo, NV by Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge. The […]

Imagin the horror!

Back in September my wife and I spent a few much needed days at our favorite spot, Disneyland. On our last day, we had a call from our neighbor letting us know someone broke into our house.  It was a very long trip home. When I opened the door, the first thing I saw was a box […]

A social media Test

This is a social media test. As i get more into using social media and blogging I am finding I need some programing help. This is only a test.

The only thing stopping this TurnStyle sling from being perfect is my equipment’s weight.

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to test the “Sling-O-Matic” by ThinkTankPhoto. It seemed to be a little bulky, and did not work well for me at conventions. Also, after a while my back started to ache. Of course, it does not help that I have a Canon 1dMark III and a 100-400, […]

But what surprised me the most was all the praise photographers have for ThinkTank. There was not one negative comment that I heard. […]

Early Morning Dew

One morning in Northern NY, I was waiting for weather to clear to do some aerial photography in the 1000 Islands Region. The fog was quit heavy this particular morning. Personally I love these kind of mornings. Living in the desert, I don’t get mornings like this. The images below is just a few of […]

ThinkTankPhoto’s Speed Racer 2.0

ThinkTankPhoto’s Speed Racer 2.0 . I am not sure if I need to classify this as a shoulder bag, or a waist belt/bag. It’s both! Not only that, you can use it either or and together as both. Simply put, for some jobs, this is the perfect bag. I can cram a 100-400 mm, Flash, […]

I seen the stars

Sadly, I did not have my camera, but I did have my iPhone…. So this brings up the question, as a professional photographer, how often should you have your camera. How about a simple family outing? For this image, I did have my camera, in the car, that was up a cliff. I was just […]
