Are Photo Contests Worth it?

This is a question I’ve been asked a lot about because there are a lot of different opinions on the matter. Some say photo contests are great and others not so. Like everything else in photography it does come down to your own preference. For me I personally don’t go for contests anymore because I […]

The People Make it Worthwhile

I know today is Thursday and that usually means I talk about some unique aircraft but since this is a very special week where I am currently in the field working with some unique aircraft, I’m actually going to push my usual Thursday post to tomorrow when I can properly explain what makes this week […]

Every year the MSGC puts on this one event that targets K-12 graders that inspires and educates the kids in all matters aviation and aerospace related.

My First Wedding Shoot, Part 2

Yesterday I blogged about overcoming some of the challenges of my first wedding shoot and showed some of the images from just the pre-ceremony, mostly shots of the little details that make up the whole event.

A really good New Year Read

Precon Photo Safari

Every time I go out shooting it is a different experience, usually because every time I go out either I get the shot that I wasn’t thinking I was going to get or something else comes up completely that i was predicting. It’s one of the best parts and the most frustrating parts of being […]

This Time in Color!

Black and White wasn’t the only thing going for these guys, the light which wasn’t the greatest when we first got there, was getting better and helped create a lot of nice shadows.

The Reenactors

This past week at Photoshop World has just been a blast and it has gone by so fast that it’s hard for me to be back in my office already. Every Photoshop World is a little bit better than the last, partly because the staff is always trying to improve the experience for the participants. […]
