Editor’s Choice

It’s always fun to see your images published in popular places. The Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail bike won Editor’s Choice in the popular mountain biking magazine, Dirt Rag. This happens to be my photo AND my personal bike, photographed in my studio! It was published in Dirt Rag in 2015.

Before & After: Real Estate Photo

My biggest competition in the real estate photography market are the agents themselves, or the sub-$200 “speed shooters”. These speed shooters blow throw a property fast because they have to hit several houses in one day. They often don’t use tripods, and any lighting beyond an on-camera flash is non-existent. I recently had a client that had previously hired another photographer to shoot the home’s interior. In this hot real estate market, that MLS listing netted them three (3!) showings in over a month on the market. The seller hired a new agent, who immediately came to me to reshoot the property. The photo comparison below says it all. Which photo set would you want representing your property?

Studio Upgrade

I have recently been upgrading and adding to my studio equipment list. It’s been fun reorganizing everything, and figuring out ways to hang and store all the light modifiers, stands, and accessories. It’s not perfect yet, but I’ve got almost everything I need for now.

My Backup Strategy

After having three hard drives fail on me in the last 6 months, I have become much more aware of trying to increase my data security. I have been photographing digitally for 14 years now, which amounts to a whole lot of irreplaceable photos and memories. The same goes for my design work, though much of design work in general is not reusable beyond the initial project, it’s still nice to have for portfolio and posterity. I started researching other creative’s backup strategies and came up with a mixed bag, but central themes.
