Much of my personal work is available as prints on canvas, metal, and other mediums, in a variety of sizes, finishes and prices. Many are also available complete with frames and mattes. Click here for more information.
Since I started shooting for 405 Magazine, I have found myself using my Nikon SB-800 Speedlights more and more. We shoot portraits on almost every shoot. Some shoots also require on-location product shots. I have never even considered bringing out my big studio lights, choosing instead to utilize the speedlights. Let's face it -- for portability and ease of use, they can't be beat.
But that portability and ease of use comes with a price -- most speedlights are powered
I asked myself, what could the DeLorean (as in the car in Back to the Future) possibly have in common with the Nikon F4, F5, D2h/D2x, D800, D3, and the D4 (and, I suspect, many more bodies)? Answer? They were all designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. Nikon created the guts, but an Italian designer designed the beautiful aesthetics and ergonomics that makes up these amazing Nikon camera bodies.

This is the story of two photo shoots — one that had to be canceled, and another that may well be one of, if not the, most important shoots of my life. It is also the story behind the reason I haven’t posted anything here in quite a while. Two of my favorite events were happening on the same weekend, May 31 thru June 2: the annual OKC Pro-Am bicycle races and the not-quite-semi-annual air show at Tinker AFB. I had planned on shooting the bicycle races on Friday evening and S
UPDATE: After returning the foot to Really Right Stuff, they have refunded the purchase price. Back when the 500 PF very first came out, Steve Perry did a review. Steve does great videos, and especially when it comes to Nikon cameras and lenses, really knows his stuff. He shoots some pretty amazing photos, too. But it was his review of the 500 PF that convinced me to buy this lens. You can watch the video by following this link. It's an excellent review, and Steve does a
I saw an article the other day that asked what Nikon should put in the as-yet-unannounced D5 replacement (the D6?). Most of the comments were for things that I don’t need, so were I to "upgrade" to a higher end body, a D5 or D850 would be fine.
But what would *I* want to see changed, not only in the D5, but in any prosumer or higher level camera? What would it take to get me to upgrade?
I’d like to see some changes in the menu system. First, we need to be able to “lo
Very often, someone just starting in photography has questions about what camera or lens (or both) they should buy. If they ask a salesperson in a photo store, they may get great advice or they may get advice that serves only to help the store's bottom line. If they ask an established photographer, they may get advice centered around whatever brand of camera that photographer shoots with.
But in almost every case, that newbie photographer will hear something like this --
It's funny how a solution to a problem will sometimes just pop up out of nowhere. I was searching through the manual for my Nikon D810, which I've been shooting with for a couple of years. I don't remember now what I was looking for, but what I did find proved interesting, and quite helpful. In my work, I tend to shoot a lot of bracketed shots. In case no one knows what bracketing is, this is where you shoot a series of photos of the exact same thing, each at a different ex
A couple of years ago, I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to take a class from one of the best known photographers and photography teachers in the world. He was, as always, a wonderful teacher and very personable.
But at the very start of the class, there was a "problem."
The camera he was using -- a Nikon D5 -- was tethered to his laptop, which in turn, was connected to a projector. Of course, this means that anything he shoots with that camera shows up
Every year about this time, photographers across the country start thinking about their yearly foray into shooting fireworks, and one of the things many of them ask themselves is, "How can I make my fireworks images stand out from everyone else's?
Some photographers look for interesting angles. Some look for intriguing foreground elements, or background elements. Some seek different vantage points. Some have had great success using drones (although I'd be afraid of havi
I've been thinking about #worldwildlifeday and wondering -- considering the rate at which poachers are murdering these magnificent animals, will the day come that the only ones left are the ones that, like these, live in zoos? I'd love for them all to be free, but would setting them free be a death sentence for their entire species? #wildlife #wildlifephotography#wildlifephotographer
