Jeep Jamboree 2013-Big Bear, CA

Hi Friends, If I mention, “John Bull Run,” or “Gold Mountain,” or “X-Trails”, or “3-foot Southern Pacific Rattlesnake” what comes to mind?   The 2013 Jeep Jamboree in Big Bear, California, of course!  Great turnout this year, and absolutely PERFECT weather!  I saw more of the mountain that day than I ever have before (and […]

A Pair of Wild Horses… Photographing Mustangs

Hi Friends, I had a rare opportunity to photograph a pair of Mustangs this past weekend: one, a classic 1947 North American P-51D (“Lady Alice”) – doubtless one of the finest aircraft ever built; and the other, a 2012 Ford BOSS 302–one of the finest muscle cars on the planet.  How cool is that! Many […]

“Networking” at the Shooting Range

“Networking” at the Shooting Range

Hi Friends, For me, typically the word, “shooting” invokes images of fast lenses, strobes, backlighting, beauty dishes and 8 frames per second.  Well, last weekend, I got to get together with bunch of fellow friends and business owners from my BNI (Business Networking International) at Raahauge’s shooting range in Corona for a shooting expedition of a […]

Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads…

It’s the first time my wife and I have ever done something like this, and I guarantee it won’t be the last! It was a dusty […]

On the Boardwalk – Sort of… It’s Carnival Time!

On the Boardwalk – Sort of… It’s Carnival Time!

Hi Friends, Having grown up in the midwest, there are certain signs that heralded the arrival of Fall: grocery stores start carrying fresh apple cider in the produce section, hay bales are everywhere you turn, the smell of burning leaves is in the air, and the local carnival is in full swing. Well, I’m no […]

Video and Stills: Photographing the Bienheim June Classic Grand Prix Horse Jumping Show

Hi Friends, I had a great opportunity to photograph the Blenheim June Classic Grand Prix horse jumping show in San Juan Capistrano this weekend.  As you see from the short video above, and the action images that follow, what an amazing partnership between horse and rider!  To witness a half-ton of hoofed mammal so [apparently] effortlessly sail […]

Senior Portrait Hockey Shoot w/Behind the Scenes Lighting Setup

A few teaser images from a senior portrait shoot this week. Tom’s an avid street hockey player and a rabid Anaheim Ducks fan, so we wanted to capture some of that passion in his portrait session. It’s been a bit rainy here in SoCal this week, so we were fortunate to shoot between storms, and […]

Zero to 100MPH in Six Seconds…Shooting the Lambo Gallardo Superleggera

Zoom zoom! My good friend, Booker, will be photographing the upcoming prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance for Garage Style Magazine. In preparation, we thought we’d get in a little practice shooting moving vehicles-car to car, as it were.  So, rather than shooting our Honda Pilot or my PT Cruiser, Booker arranged for his neighbor, Gary, to […]

Danza de la Pluma – Dance of Feathers

One of my Photoshop students invited me to see his son’s Oaxacan dance troupe perform this morning…  All in Spanish, so I didn’t understand a word of what was being said, but according to the interwebs, “Danza de la Pluma is a re-enactment of the battles between the Spanish and the Aztecs performed as a […]
