Technology a Threat To Professional Photographers?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Advertising, Assignment Work, Behind the Scenes, Conceptual, Hospitality, Inspiration, Interiors, Lifestyle, Personal, Travel

I keep reading about how technologies like mirrorless cameras and phones will change the landscape or even eliminate the role of many in creative fields like photography. They say anyone can take high quality photos with these new devices…I say BALONEY! Because it always has been, and always will be, about how one sees. It’s about intentions and goals and connecting with target audiences in a way that is meaningful. In ways that help people in some way…to live, play and engage. The following are some Iphone pics of a night out at #losaltosspeakeasy @billfuller @zackbush ENJOY! Maybe check the […]

Tapas and Wine On a Rainy Night in Logrono, Spain

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Advertising, Assignment Work, Features, Food, Hospitality, Inspiration, Lifestyle, Personal, Travel

As a creative it is so important to explore and play away from work. That’s why I found myself recharging my creative batteries with tapas and wine on a rainy night in Logrono, Spain. I loved being here. Roaming the narrow streets of Logrono, Spain under the drizzle of a cool rain. Ducking into one of many bars and restaurants for tapas/pintxos and a glass of wine. The energy of people crowded together, sharing, laughing and telling stories was amazing! It was one of those times in my life that I relished being alive for one more day. Can’t blame […]

Happy New Year!

My family and I visited the Miccosukee Tribe Festival over the holidays. It was an awesome cultural celebration. The dancers, dressed in elaborate tribal costumes, were amazing! As were the stories of their past, present and future. Stories about physical and spiritual strength, values and wisdom. It’s hard to deny that all that comes before us remains a part of us in some way. So I’m wishing everyone #manyblessings in the new year! Especially, the blessing of knowing what from the past is worth expanding on and what is best left to shrink into the past. May creativity (God) and […]

Sharing Is Caring

As a photographer not a week goes by without friends, family and/or clients asking, ‘Can you photograph my kids, my family, my dog, so and so’s wedding?’, etc. Lol! I often want to say, ‘Yes!’, but I can’t! I am one person focusing on commercial photography and raising children. It seems my hours and minutes are always accounted for. Yet, when I do this kind of work, I love it!  These photos were part of an auction for my girls school. A worthy cause. The Wallace family purchased my photo package, an afternoon with me and a photo book. Here […]

I was amazed at the emotional connection and feelings of love, joy and deep gratitude I felt as I walked away from it. Thoughts of drives to and from with my girls knowing they were growing and different each time they got in and out. All the photo shoots with my car loaded with gear, allowing me to be creative and earn a living. Often standing on top of it as a platform for me and my tripod. I thought of many good times jamming to loud music with family, friends and especially my girls. The lectures. The laughter. Holding […]

It’s A Dirty Job, But…..

Industrial photography is a specialized field of photography which makes it possible for businesses to communicate with customers and other businesses showcasing their industrial processes, machines, and techniques. I thrive in these environments. Here is where I can indulge my curiosity and wonder about how things are made and where they come from. An understanding of how these products are marketed and used in daily life and in business to business consumption helps a lot. Photographing people at work, industrial machinery, locations and manufacturing processes requires a skilled photographer with years of experience. I have traveled to remote industrial facilities […]
