Giant Redwoods

After attending the cruise I accompanied my wife on a work trip to the Bay Area. While she was in meetings all day long I was able to explore some of the beautiful Redwood forests in the area. This shot is from Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. Being amongst these giant trees was a spiritual experience that I urge anyone to go see.

JoCo Cruise Crazy

I recently went on my first cruise. The singer/songwriter Jonathan Coulton hosted a cruise with lots of wonderful performers. I took some great portraits while on board that I want to share with you. I will post some of the photos over the next few days and weeks. Notice the focus directly where it belongs, on the beard.

Working with the latest and greatest

Recently I have been working with the latest and greatest photo equipment. Fortunately my time in a pro rental shop a few years back has helped me to become intimate with the tools of my trade. As I do a lot of photo assistant work, knowing the ins and outs of cameras like the Hasselblad H series, and backs like the Phase One P30+ is crucial. Knowing the color temperature of a Profoto head hooked to a Profoto Pro 8 pack helps too. I'm a gear nut. I could sit and read camera manuals all day long, fortunately I've been rather busy so far this year assisting photographers I respect. I pretty much know every major professional camera system and flash unit available. I'm also pretty good at lighting tests.

I have a rather nice collection of shoes, thanks to being a bit fashion-conscious. One of my favorite shoe designers is John Fluevog. I have several pairs of his shoes and boots, including some really interesting vegan shoes. These boots are some of his newer leather offerings from a  series of shots I did of my Fluevog collection.
