A New Learning

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that we were on location filming a new video series. I thought today I would share a little behind the scenes view of what that video series will be about. Any guesses?

Production Manager

I hope you all had a great weekend. I actually had a kind of cool experience. A college teammate of mine (I was bike racer in college) took me to the Broncos game on Sunday. Although it was freezing, we were able watch a record-setting 64 yard field goal. It’s always cool to see things like that in person. Anyway, this is a little behind the scenes shot from Dead Horse point in Moab, Utah. I say behind the scenes because that person you see is our production manager taking an iPhone Photo as we were walking back from a video we were filming. The video will be released in a few weeks so stay tuned. If you’d like, sign up for my newsletter and I’ll let you know the second it hits the streets. We have been hard at work on it, and it will be the start of something totally new. If you are looking to learn more about photography, the creative process and all that is involved….stay tuned!

Fisher Towers Redux

Fisher Tower Moab Utah Nikon 45mm PC-E

Howdy! I hope you all had a great weekend. It is getting cold here in Colorado. I have shot Fisher Towers many times, but in this image I wanted to try a fresh take on them. I opted for my 45mm PC-E (a very unique and specialized lens) to add a little extra ‘something something’ to the image. In the end, I dug it. I will have more about this image and places all around the Moab area in an upcoming video workshop I’m working on with my partner from I can’t wait to share it with you. It is going to be really cool, fun, inspiring and I think you will all learn some very valuable information from it. Keep you posted!

The Adventure Camera Bag

Saddleback Leather Simple Backpack Review

As many of you might know, I have been in the middle of a creative retooling. I have moved from my tried and true Nikons to the Fuji X system. I have written at length about the system itself, but something that I haven’t touched on is the peripherals that have changed in support of my new kit. One of which is my bag. I have ditched modern-day nylon and plastic, for the timeless class of adventure bags built to last a lifetime. I have two of these bags, one is a satchel which I use for travel and street photography. The other is this one. A good old fashion backpack for hiking and landscape photography. If you are interested, you can find them over at Saddleback Leather. They are a great company that stands behind their gear. (Ethics Note: I am in no way endorsed by Saddleback Leather, I just think they are a cool company).

Photographer’s Note – This is a .jpg straight out of my Fuji X-E1 using the 35mm 1.4. I shot this on location while I was filming my next video workshop. We should have it published by year’s end.
