iPhone Friday


Howdy! I’m proud to report that the 5 Day Deal I was part of raised over $45,000 for charity. Yup, that is awesome! If you purchased the bundle, I would like to say thanks. That is a lot of money for some great causes. Today’s iPhone photo is a of a cute little cat I photographed while cruising around the back streets of Cozumel working on a little personal project I will share with you sometime next week.

Have a great weekend!

Lightroom Presets

I had a couple questions about the new Lightroom Presets, so here’s a quick video overview of them. If you’d like to purchase them, you can pick up our Complete Collection here. It’s the best deal going. $30 gets you 75 presets, 50 photo finishing tools and a complete set of colorized graduated neutral density filters.

iPhone Photography Cozumel

Howdy! I’m now back in the world of reliable internet. If I missed an email or comment I’m totally sorry about that. Poor internet access was to blame. I will do my best to catch up in the next few days. This was a quick iPhone Photo while I was, according to Trey…stuck in customs…for three long hours. It was kind of a bummer that we missed a great sunset, but I made the most out of it with some discrete iPhone photos.

I also have some other cool news…..

This is a great opportunity to help a few deserving organizations.

First off, I hope everyone had a great 2013! I wanted to share with you a project I have been invited to be part of here in 2014. As many of you know, I support the Davis Phinney Foundation which helps people living with Parkinson’s disease live well. By being involved in this project that is launching on Jan 5th, we are able to continue to help support this great foundation. Check it
out and make sure to visit on Jan
5th. Not only will you have an opportunity to improve your photography,
you will have a
special opportunity help the Davis Phinney Foundation, as well as other deserving charities. That’s a ‘win win’ in my book!


Why do I think that?  

Well, this event is going to be a big deal to a lot of people:

  • You will be able to help support several deserving foundations by improving your own photography.
  • Interested in HDR photography?
  • What about travel or fashion photography?
  • Needing to get better at food photography?
  • Looking to start or grow a photography business?
  • Wanting to sell photography or photography related products on the internet?
  • Wish you could find out which tools the pro’s use?

…and this is only the beginning.

Really… if you’ve got a camera your gonna want to be part of this event.  

I can’t say much more about the event now, but you can find out more about dates and who is included by clicking below.

64 Yard Field Goal Denver Broncos

Remember at the beginning of this week when I mentioned I was at the game where the NFL record-setting 64 yard field goal was kicked? Well this was it! And this was our view.

Howdy! It has been quite a tech failure week over here. Boy oh boy, Apple Mavericks hates external hard drives. And we photographers know why we have external hard drives. Yep, you guessed it…to store crazy huge files our cameras produce. Maybe this is just another argument in favor of the rather simple mobile photography workflow?

Speaking of mobile photography, the good folks over at iPhone Photography School posted a cool review of my new course ‘The Art of Mobile Photography’. Make sure to visit the site, because they are offering very limited pricing. I mean very limited!
