Hummingbirds Part 1

Back in August 2010 myself and my friend Mike of Nelmst Images took a 2 day workshop through Incredible Travel Photos by Oliver Klink to learn about and photograph hummingbirds. I've taken a few workshops over the years and this one has to have been the best. Oliver's teaching style was very laid back and informative. Sadly this workshop is no longer available, if it was I would take it again and again as it gave great access to 100's of hummingbirds.

July 2012 Photo Walk

Here are a few images from one of the many photo walks I did through San Francisco's Financial District. As I explore my archives of photos, I have come to realize that I need to start doing walks through a few new areas in the city. Fortunately that shouldn't be a problem as there are many great areas to walk through.

2013 Trip to Safari West

I joined with a few friends and a meetup group to visit Safari West  an African adventure park. Hidden away in the California wine country you will find a park that will let you fell like you are in the Serengeti. You'll find Safari West 3115 Porter Creek Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95404. If you are planning a trip to the area it is a fun place to visit.

Fun day of photos.

This last Saturday (7/23/2016) I woke up early, met up with a friend from Nelmst Images and headed off to Mt. Davidson Park in San Francisco, California for a sunrise shoot. It was a great shooting location except for the mosquitoes which tried to eat me alive. I came away with three from this first visit to this location.

Experimenting & Improving

The other night I was just working with a different way of lighting my drops. I also played with my drop size and a bit of color in the catch bowl. I kind of like the results and feel they are starting to look a little better. Here are 5 of the shots I captured. 

Sunflowers

I spent the other day hanging out with some friends, taking photos of some sunflower fields. Here are a few of my favorites.

San Francisco Financial District

Here are a series of photos taken back in August 2012 during a couple of photo walks I did, in an effort to get out of the heat here in the in East Bay. What better way to beat the heat than to grab the camera, head to the city early in the morning, and hide out in the shade of the city's skyscrapers as the weather warms up.

Masks

Welcome to my revamped webpage. To my past visitors, thank you for returning and I hope you will find this new layout more pleasing and an over all cleaner look. To my new visitors, I hope you will return often and enjoy the images I share with you. I will be working hard to keep the page updated and to show off new and old photos alike. On that note I was combing though my archives this morning searching for a a few images and I came across these photos of hand-carved wooden masks. These masks were just a small piece of my great uncle's collection. Sadly I don't know much about them, other than he had collected them during the course of his travels around the world.
