A dangerous storm system passed through the Midwest on February 29th, 2012. Dubbed the “Leap Year Tornadoes,” parts of the Midwest were hit hard. The morning after the storm passed through Harrisburg, IL our disaster team gathered to talk about a possible deployment. The small town in Southern Illinois had six […]
I was recently contracted to do some After Effects work for a nanotechnology company. This is the result.
I was sitting at Patient First, my primary care physician, with a gigantic bug bite. A bright, red, bulls-eye looking bump was now covering about half of my calf. The culprit? The doctor couldn’t say for sure, but we both agreed it looked like the Amblyomma americanum – otherwise known […]
These photos come with a bit of a delay. I shot these back in September for the Akeson family. They wanted some photos to use for a big wall collage, so we went to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens and clicked away. Even though it was hot and humid, we had […]
These are from a recent engagement photo shoot with Steven and Megan. They were hilarious; had me laughing the whole time. Steven is in the Navy and Megan wanted to get these photos taken before his deployment. We picked three beautiful locations around Norfolk, Virginia, and they turned out great. […]
I decided to go on a little adventure. I found myself at the Oakland Historic Cemetery at sunset. It was built in 1850 overlooking then downtown Atlanta, Georgia. With graves dating back to the early 1800’s, many of them Confederate soldiers, the graveyard seemed too unique to pass by unexplored. The […]
I had the pleasure of meeting Morgan and Collin recently for a headshot shoot. Morgan and Collin are local commercial and film actors who needed updated photos to hand out while auditioning. They were easy to work with, and were quite comfortable in front of the camera. We shot on […]
I helped a friend shoot some headshots about a month ago. He only had fifteen minutes, so we shot as much as we could, and then called it quits. We ended up with a few good shots. He needed some photos for his website, not necessarily headshots, but these are […]
I’m trying to build a strong portrait photography portfolio with new equipment. That said, I’m willing to shoot a 3 hour session for $100. With what goes into a photo session, plus equipment, that’s definitely a steal! If you’re interested or want more info feel free to use the […]
As we headed back to Livermore, CA after a day of shooting in Stockton we ran across a problem. A fire had crossed the interstate. On the positive side, while sitting in traffic, I shot some cool pictures of wind turbines at sunset.
A long-form features shoot found me in San Francisco and its outlying suburbs. These are a few photos I snapped of a mom/daughter duo we interviewed in their garden. They even gave us peaches from their peach tree, and they were delicious.
I found some old photos from a commercial shoot back around the 4th of July. We shot an actor portraying John Adams as he wrote letters to his wife Abigail. The shoot was mainly video focused, but here are a few stills! We used an old corner office, cleared out […]
Business cards just came in the mail. So exciting that I thought I’d share these photos. Just pretend to be enthusiastic… By the way, I’ve been advertising around. A three hour engagement photo shoot, 40 final images, 10 of those professionally touched up by yours truly, all for $100. That’s […]
I’ll be honest with you… This was my first ever engagement photo shoot. Troy and Kelsey were patient, looked great, and had a lot of fun. We shot in a few locations around Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. I’ve been shooting news and commercial photojournalism for so long now that […]
I’ve added a few of my favorite stories to my Vimeo channel. I shot and edited most of them. Some videos are breaking news, others are more Dateline’ish feature stories. I’ll be sure to add a few of them to the video section on this website soon. In the meantime, […]
The whole site got revamped. In the old days I used to register and host my website through a third party company. Well, I like the layout and feel of a blog revamped as a freelance website much better. So I did it. Explore the site, look at some of […]
I was holding my small HD camcorder, nearly hidden across the street. I could see through the open door of the Halal butcher shop. It was a busy day in this north Paris suburb, and a nearby Arab market was in full swing. Men were bringing in slabs of red […]
It started with skipping dinner. I was in a hotel in San Diego, a big Hilton just off of San Diego Bay. I had skipped dinner after a long day of shooting news stories for CBN. And instead of grabbing dinner out–I stayed in. This turned out to be an […]
Thursday afternoon Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, stormed into the Soldier Readiness Center, two handguns drawn, and started firing at whoever he could find. Some argue he had targets, others argue it was random. Although the details are still murky, it is clear that Hasan did something unthinkable, […]
