There's something about wedding proposal shoots that always make me a little bit nervous. I'm one of those photographers that like to remove as many of the unknowns as possible. For example, I am checking the weather report a week in advance of a shoot. I send out client info packages on where to park for beach shoots because I don't want them driving around in circles as the sun sets on me and my camera alone. So naturally when I shoot a surprise proposal I am introducing an unknown...will she say yes?Read More
Behind the Lens
I start this article as I sit at an overcrowded charging station at Oakland airport getting ready to board a flight back to Tampa after spending the better part of a week in the San Francisco area. I am going to structure this post into multiple parts based around the day's activities and the photos from them. I'm also going to explain a little bit of my thought process (if there was one) and my approach for each day's photo opportunities while piggy backing on the normal tourist activities like sight seeing, bike tours, and restaurant hunting. If you are looking for things to do while visiting in San Francisco this might be a good guide for you, if you also enjoy taking photos, this might be a great guide for you.Read More
When I was in 3rd grade I played soccer for a single season, I have two memories of my soccer days.
1. I was playing as a defender and the ball was kicked down to our side and rolled out of bounds...or so I thought. The ball actually rolled outside the penalty area line, which I took as the end of the field, it was still in play as I stand there wondering why the whistle wasn't blown and as the other team came in to take the ball to a goal.
