Just a few shots I got on my drive home from Colorado this morning, nothing nearly as fancy as some of your guy's shots just thought I'd share a few first shots with my new lens it's a Sigma 30mm F/1.4

Which bodies do you have? I do want a 5Dc backup because I love the classic and mine has been taking a beating.

Great shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. Always nice to see the ocean side shot occasionally.

I've been decently lazy and only taking pictures on big trips. Only two shots in the past three years I really like.

First picture is from a Auburn football game. I was fortunate enough to have my friend who I shot with at UT who is now the head athletics photographer at Auburn invite me down for a game. Got this shot before the game. My friend told me just the other day no one has been able to recreate it after the past two seasons. It got a decent amount of attention from their twitter feed and they actually printed it out for their facilities, which was pretty cool (Even if it is a better crop than what I had originally done )





The second image is the one below, which is of a lighthouse between the northern tip of Long Island and New London, CT, which I traversed between on a recent northeastern roadtip. I took this from the car ferry and I instantly knew it would become one of my favorites and it still, many months later, maintains that status.

Welp-

I have not been shooting at all for myself lol. Mostly paid shoots as I am busting my hump so that I can afford to pick up a MKIII and hopefully pair it with a 24-70L 2.8

If all goes as planned, should be able to make the purchase in the next few months.

I know the MKIV is coming out but they expect it to retail for $3500 and I just can't swing that.

Ill see what I can dig up and post here that I have shot recently.

Dude, simply amazing.

All of it.

First off, that club shot is the coolest shit I have ever seen. Did he get them all to pose?!!?!?!?!

And the one on the rocks....was that candid or do you know them?

If that shit is candid, my mind is blown lmao.

But honestly, you always have been a huge inspiration along with Jayson and of course Tommi.

I can't wait to upgrade. I know that the color and sharpness I lust for will only come from better equipment. I still have a ways to go with lighting but I think it's one of those things that you never truly master, but just improve upon over time. For fucks sake, if anyone has mastered it, it is you especially in the club!

thanks for the kind words brother! yeah that first photo the dj wanted a picture with the crowd so he told everyone to pose. its something i do occasionally and it can be pretty intense when it happens at a festival and the artist calls 30 thousand people to your attention. haha.

the second shot was completely candid. last sunday i was in malibu, and that guy was just sitting there on the rocks with his daughter and it was too great of a moment to let pass by.

and yeah dude... once you have a grasp of things upgrading gear makes a huge difference. if at all possible id suggest upgrading one thing at a time. when all my gear got stolen last year and i bought a lot of new stuff at once it made it sort of difficult to focus on any one piece and feel really comfortable with it. of course you figure it out but its easier when you space it out.

Thanks dude, that means a lot and yes, they were pretty happy with the results. Have not had a rebook for the first kid, but the 2nd kids parents booked me to do his 1st birthday party.

Wow i can only imagine having that many people focusing on you. I mean Ive played in bands and played for crowds of about 100 or so and it is the best feeling in the world but id imagine its different in this scenario.

That picture of the father and child on the rocks is just a gorgeous image. Framing is great, color, and exposure. Nailed it.

And I totally agree with the idea of focusing on one item at a time. If I had to replace everything I owned at the moment, which isn't a ton of stuff, I would definitely be overwhelmed.

All im picking up is a MKIII, and a slightly used fist gen 24-70L.

I would LOVE either a 50 1.2 or the 70-200L but they're just too pricey.

I also figured that since I do paid shoots, the 24-70L would hold me over for most events I do and for some portrait work in the mean time till I save up for my next L purchase lol.

Believe it or not, a lot of what I shoot right now is with my cheapo 28-90 3.5 canon knock-around lens. Definitely rings true that it is not always equipment, but the photographer behind the lens, but of course solid equipment delivers results.

Ill be keeping the 5dc as a backup body. If it weren't for the better AF and ISO ability, id just stick with the 5dc because as you guys said, it still produces beautiful images at only 12mp! And I dropped her on concrete from about 3 feet. Smashed my 50 1.8 to pieces but the damn 5dc is a beast lol.

Well, it's official.



Next up is a gently used 24-70L.

Now I need to send the 5dc in for some much needed service as she gets ready to be relegated to backup duty.

one more, a self portrait. one of my best friends asked all of his groomsmen and ushers to be in his wedding with the gift of a lightsaber and said we all had to take pictures with them. I had a bit of fun with it:
