We had a beautiful sunrise on our final morning in Lake Powell during our houseboat photography trip last month w/ @visitlakepowell . I still can’t believe places like this still exist. We had the entire bay to ourselves for 3 whole days and we barely put a dent in the areas we wanted to explore. I anxiously await our return. Workshops coming soon :). Be sure to read our challenges for the shot for this photo below the EXIF. ⠀ ⠀ EXIF - Single Exposure ⠀ Camera: Sony a7s2 Lens: Tamron 15-30 @ f/11 Shutter: 4 seconds ISO: 100 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card ⠀ Challenges: Weather & energy. After an all nighter of shooting startrails and waiting for Milkyway, we were ready to call it and hike back to our boat as the sun started coming up. With the clouds blocking our Milkyway shooting and motivation to keep going, we almost skipped sunrise. As we started picking up, we noticed the clouds were breaking and getting thinner so sunrise actually had potential to “explode.” And it did just that...twice! The color exploded and calmed down and blew up again! It was awesome. How many times have you walked away with better sunrise photos when your goal was Astrophotography?
I’m super excited to be spending the next few days / nights out in the Superstition Wilderness with my private and group workshop guests. This place always amazes me and I’m excited to see what we all come away with! ⠀ EXIF - Single Exposure ⠀ Camera: Sony a7s2 Lens: Tamron 15-30 @f/4 Shutter: 20 seconds ISO: 1600 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card
Spring officially starts today and it’s getting me excited for those long summer nights and warm weather. One of my new favorite places for weather like this is Lake Powell. I can’t wait to return here! Thanks @visitlakepowell for opening my eyes to such a beautiful location such as this one!
Desert Bloom ⠀ ⠀ I caught some nice light shining on a few poppies in the desert today. I’ve never really shot wildflowers before and it was more challenging than I thought. Finding flowers that are actually open and in big groups was hard to find. The areas that I did find blankets of flowers were sadly trampled on. If you’re going out to shoot the super-bloom, please stay on the trails and watch where you step. Events like this don’t happen very often! ⠀ EXIF - Single Exposures - Focus Stacked ⠀ Camera: Canon 6D Lens: Tamron 15-30 @ f/16 Shutter: 1/30 ISO: 100 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card ⠀ Challenges: Wind and actually finding good flowers! I went to saguaro national park instead of the overcrowded areas because I was told some areas out there are starting to pop up. I asked a friend who works for SNP and she gave me a good spot to search. Thank you, Jessica!
Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a great week. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’ve been busy playing catch-up after an amazing houseboat photography trip on Lake Powell last week! For 4 days and 3 nights, we were in a beautiful remote location under some beautiful dark skies miles up the Glen Canyon. I’ll be posting photos and behind the scene content on @visitlakepowell so be sure to head there so you can see what we were up to! Also be sure to leave a comment of your favorite memory / activity to do here as well!
Hey guys! I’m really exited to share with you my latest short film “Sonoran Snow 2” which captured the 2nd rare snow that fell in Tucson last weekend. Using motion control timelapse and aerial cinematography, I captured the snow accumulating and melting in the Tucson Mountains. Tune in at 6pm on Facebook for a viewing party or please visit my website for the FULL 4K video and bonus content such as: behind the scenes photos of the equipment used, prints for sale, and more. I hope you enjoy and feel free to ask any questions!
Happy birthday to the magnificent Grand Canyon! 100 years ago President Woodrow Wilson signed the congressional act establishing Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. Have you ever been? ⠀ EXIF - Single Exposure ⠀ Camera: Sony A7S2 Lens: Tamron 15-30 f/2.8 Shutter: 10 seconds ISO: 1,600
I can’t believe how much snow we’ve had this year in Tucson! It started snowing at 2,300 feet at 8am this morning and didn’t stop until about noon. Be sure to check out my IG story for more content. I’m excited to show you guys all the motion control timelapses and drone footage :)
Catalina’s ⠀ ⠀ I caught some nice light shining on the Catalina’s this morning after a little snowstorm passed through overnight. After driving around for 2 hours this morning not getting the shot I was anticipating, this one will do :). Read below for the challenges! ⠀ EXIF - Single Exposure ⠀ Camera: Canon 6D Lens: Canon 70-200 f/7.1 Shutter: 1/200 ISO: 100 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card ⠀ Challenges: Actually taking a dang shot! I woke up this morning at 4 a.m after a terrible nights rest due to excitement. I was anticipating low level snow which made me rush to the mountains only to be turned away by a sheriff who beat me there by 1 minute (not joking, he pulled right up in front of me as I was getting to the stop sign from a different road 🤬.) So after driving around for 2 hours across town, I decided to head home and shoot it from the west side of town with downtown in the foreground from “A” Mountain. Guess what? It was closed too but for a different reason. It was now 7am and the sun was coming out so I scrambled and found a pull off with a view of the mountains and downtown separately. Sun finally broke and I was able to get this shot which might be my favorite of the Catalina’s aside from my lightning shots. Moral of the story is don’t give up and take what Mother Nature gives you and make the best of it! That is why I’m entering this photo in @natgeo #natgeo100contest for inspiring me to chase my dreams.
Join me in Joshua Tree National Park March 8-10th for an unforgettable night photography workshop! Milkyway panoramics, startrails, and light painting are just a few of the things you will learn! You will walk away with some amazing photos and the knowledge how to create compelling night sky photos! Only a few spots left and registration closes soon. More information and sign up link is in my bio! I hope to see you there!
