Announcment: Now Booking Photo Sessions!

Photography has always been one of my passions. I love everything about it, from the technical to the abstract. However, somewhere along the way I guess I decided that I had to choose between video and photography, and video won. I never gave it up, never walked away or anything (over)dramatic like that. It just wasn't how I labeled myself. I was a professional Videographer, Cameraman, or Production Specialist. Photography just subconsciously took a backseat and I'm not sure why.

Well, as of today, I don't have to wonder anymore. I've decided to make this the year that I start adding more professional photography work to my schedule.

Now, some of you may be looking at this and (laughing, shame on you!) thinking, "$50! Are you insane?" Well, yes, but that's not the point. The truth is that I would consider this like participating in beta testing or getting in on the ground floor of something. I may have almost ten years of photography experience, but there is still going to be a feeling-out period as I try to take things to the next level. Prices will eventually go up though, so take advantage of a great deal while it lasts!

Thanks for reading!

The Non-Fist-Pump Weekend...

I've been doing wedding and event videography for a few years now and one thing that I've had to get used to is the sometimes forgotten fact that videography jobs are fluid by nature, especially when problems surface. The contract may have times, stipulations, and a myriad of other agreements, but both parties involved know (or should know) that nothing ever works out the way it appears on paper. When it works out in your favor, you do a fist pump, hop in the car, and cruise on home. Unfortunately, this was not a fist pump weekend.

"This Lens Will Change Your Life!..."

Well, at least that is what I read on some of the online forums I frequent. I'm talking, of course, about the Canon 50mm f/1.8 ii lens I recently purchased.

Update: February MMA...

Just thought I would post a small update on one of my past jobs. I was digging on YouTube yesterday for stuff to put on the portfolio page and noticed that fights from my last MMA job have been posted. So, I took the liberty of posting them below for your viewing pleasure.

Also, a quick reminder that I'll be shooting their next event, Shine At The Shrine 2 on May 14th. You can get more info from their website.

Thanks for stopping by.
