I finally got a chance to play with my new Fuji X100 a bit at a Mumford concert at Red Rocks. It’s pretty noisy after ISO 1600 and the autofocus was pretty slow and worthless in the low light but so is the 5D mark II. But the images that you do get come out pretty good! Plus it looks cool.
I am so thankful that everyday I get to do something that I love! This last month has been one of the busiest months of my career. Between building my new Portfolio, which can be a daunting task, to “working” and planning personal shoots, which have yet to surface, leaves me time for little else, like updating my blog. So I thought I better share with you a tid bit of what I have been working on. I also threw in a few interesting behind the scenes images. Enjoy.
5280 July 2012 TOP OF THE TOWN

COBIZ August 2012 Executive Edge: Denver University Dean, Christine Riordan
Of this months issue of Entrepreneur Magazine, I had the awesome opportunity to get over and shoot Tim and Tracy at Never Summer Snowboard Manufacturers here in Denver. They’re a great local company that has been building a quality products for years. They’re Rocker Camber technology has recently catapulted them to a whole new level! Continue reading →
Is it legal to burn you loved ones? I wouldn’t think so, but among the many random places I stumbled upon this weekend in my best efforts to dodge any and all Labor Day vacationers, Crestone, Colorado seems to be ok with it. Driving through town you would swear you literally just missed a Grateful Dead show and the Dead heads were still roaming the streets in search of that last drops of LSD. Or maybe Crestone is the last stop for all the old hippie trustafarians kicked out of Boulder who will now be able to fly directly under the radar due to the UFO observatory and Alligator farm within a half hour drive.
Who new Colorado had so much to offer! Well, a lot of people I would guess. Although, it still amazes me that everywhere I go in this state I am pleasantly surprised on the vastness of landscapes it has to offer. The Great Sand Dunes National Park being no exception. We started early and drove directly towards the Sand Dunes, ignoring all warnings to lower our tire pressure due to deep sand. The road eventually became more and more remote and at times resembled a small beach front path somewhere in Mexico. After a short hike, which pretty much felt straight up we were on top of the tallest dune in the 130 square mile National park. The view was incredible and the landscaped was transformed into a scene straight out of “Dune” minus the creepy eyes.
The final leg of the trip was up through Crested Butte with a nights stay up on Kebler Pass at Lake Erwin Campground. I have this theory when shooting photos… If I’m being lazy and I don’t want to get up or maybe I think nothing will come of my efforts and I am planning of just blowing the entire thing off. Then I think to myself, every time I go shoot when I don’t want to I get some of my favorite shots. Well, this time was an exception.. I was up at 5:30am, braved the cold temps and waited two hours for a nice sunrise pic of the lake and nothing! Nothing became of it, it clouded up and by the time the sun hit everywhere I wanted it to, there was no nice warm morning glow so… you get this mediocre shot of the lake. Enjoy. Continue reading →

I’ve never seen it rain so much in Colorado! It seems that every afternoon around three or four the clouds roll in and rain starts to fall. Sunday was no exception, but after two reschedules and I finally had the props in hand we just had to make a go of it. I want to give a huge thanks to Tom Visocchi my photo caddie and Brooklyn our model, without you guys it wouldn’t be possible!.. Please check out the images on my website as well!
Finally got out to do a little recreational shooting yesterday, It was nice because I felt as if I was in a bit of a creative slump. But it’s amazing how a little walking around with your camera and a little practice on a new technique with my “old” friend Tom can get your mind flowing again! I had really been liking this light leak/blown out lens flare look I have been seeing lately. Although, It still needs a bit of work I was pleased how they came out. ENJOY.
