Bee yard (Spies Bee’s)

October 23, 2017 Adventure, Art, Lifestyle, Nature 0

I had the opportunity to visit a bee yard (Spies Bee’s) in Iowa during a weekend trip to visit family. I learned how the colonels work as a single organism, and how weaker hives can actually be robbed or overtaken by stronger ones for food. Also some hives are real calm and will simply mind their own business or how others are easily aggravated. This is why bee keepers use smoke, It makes them think there is a fire and they hurry up and eat... Read more

Music Photography- How To

October 2, 2017 Music 0

To this day i’m still learning how to take photos, and the more I shoot the more I find there are no limits. What I’ve found was to get the “Safe” photos then experiment with the settings and lighting. Also having a good idea of the scene you’d like before hand will help tremendously! So, for live concert it’s tricky. A fast lens is helpful but what if you don’t have one? I’ve found a 50mm helps if you want crisp photos but it limits... Read more

So, a little bit has happened with the journey to becoming a full time photographer. Still a lot ways a way but at least now im having some sort of consistency.

Garden Of the Gods & Pikes Peak

May 15, 2017 Uncategorized 0

A few days ago I took a week trip to Colorado and spent one evening dedicated to photography. The location I chose for that was the Garden of the Gods. The view of pikes peak from here is just amazing, I highly recommend visiting during sunset. Pikes Peak at 14,114′ there are two ways up, the Cog and Driving (when the roads are open). In May it seems that down below the city of Manitou Springs, CO weather is a warm 89 degrees and at top it... Read more

Texas Hill Country Magazine

February 1, 2017 Adventure, Art, Landscape, Nature 0

I was recently featured in Texas Hill Country‘s 2016 winter issue. The photo featured was an image I captured after south Texas had a very little amount of snow fall a few years back. News channels told everyone to stay off the roads so I went out exploring with my camera and with no one on the roads had a little bit of fun too. The image located under the Faust Street Bridge in New Braunfels was both luck (lighting) and great timing! Read more

Live Band photography/tips

January 27, 2017 Music 0

It’s been a long time since i’ve photographed a band on stage. I’ve gained a few skills over the years of shooting bands live. The most important one is to not just point and click, frame your shot and wait for the action. What really helps is burst mode. Once you find the shot you want hold that shutter down for a second. Spray and praying will increase your edit time and space on your camera Don’t leave it to luck to capture good photos, pay attention... Read more

Real estate tips and tricks

January 24, 2017 Architectural 0

During each estate shoot I have I learn something new or have a new idea for the next one. I really like to reduce the amount of time editing photos and to do that what helps me is framing, camera settings and lighting. For interior I will expose and choose white balance(Sun) depending on the amount of windows in the room. If lots of natural light, i’ll go a few stops under exposure so the windows aren’t blown out. Then review the image, and proceed to... Read more

Lost Maples State park is a sight to see at any time of the year, however fall is when it’s the most spectacular to visit. The maple trees change the 2,174.2 acre green park into a orange and golden one. For these photos I used a 10x ND filter so i could do long exposures in broad daylight. It provides a very cool look for daytime photos. Read more
