Kicking Off the New Year

Kicking Off the New Year

Happy New Year everyone! I ended my 2012 on a high note and have been working hard to keep the momentum going into the new year. As always, I’m looking for ways I can develop and grow in my photography and I hope to improve on some things for the new year. So far so […]


Taming a Wild Turkey

Taming a Wild Turkey

Yesterday my assignment was to photograph a wild turkey that was being rehabilitated by our local Suisun Wildlife Center. He had had his wings clipped by someone hoping to have him for a Thanksgiving day dinner. Tom the Turkey, as he is called around the center, somehow escaped and is now healing at the center […]


Crashing into the New Year

Crashing into the New Year

Never have I been more relieved to put a month behind me. I started 2011 nursing the wounds from a Christmas Day car accident where I was hit by a guy running a red light. Wear your seat belts folks. They saved my life. Despite my Subaru being totaled, a massive concussion, some stitches and […]

A short story that yielded some cool shots. I’ve been continuing to play with my Profoto lights and apply them to our annual […]

I recently purchased a new Profoto AcuteB 600R power pack and lamp head and decided to test them out […]


The Return of Prep Football and the Portrait Machine

The Return of Prep Football and the Portrait Machine

Well after a long summer, football season has finally arrived. Things are starting to get busy around the paper with the dawn of the new school year. Prep sports are getting underway and my newspaper, like so many others, does an annual prep football preview section to ring in the new season. I was assigned […]


Banking on the Bottle

Every once in a while at my job, an assignment comes up where all the elements fall into place and I get to make a really creative portrait. Such was the case with this photograph. This was for a story on 17-year-old Danielle Burmudez who was recently awarded membership to the National Society of High […]
