THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS, IT’S ALL ONE STORY
Everything worth doing takes time. Commitment and intention are everything. Otherwise, projects end up half-baked, or worse yet, contain inaccurate information when they were thought to be “finished”.
Our title says it all. Remember the big picture. “You’re only as good as your last job” is something else to keep in mind, no matter how far up the tree you climb. Another is, “The higher you climb, the harder the wind blows.”
Stay calm and focused on your goals, and try to ignore the noise that passes for excellence. It just ends up competing with your attention for what really matters. Continue reading “”
LOOK UP, THE SKY IS OPEN.
Drone photography and videography can be magical.
However, it is not for the faint of heart. The deeper you go into this discipline-laden aerial specialty, the more you risk being confronted with the limits of what is possible. Those limits are not very forgiving.
Still, for me, the effort is worth the risk for the imagery that can only be acquired aloft. It’s an inspiring and addictive vocation. Fly safely.
CHRISTMAS IS HIGHER THAN THE WORLD
I posted the following music video over a year ago. After talking with folks in the past month about what the’ve gone through since then, I think it’s an appropriate time to revisit it.
OK, here’s the last in my arbitrary list of 5 traditional photographic rules meant to broken on the 21st day of the 12th month of the 21st year of the 21st century:
“Don’t Place The Horizon In The Middle Of The Frame”.
Another version of this is, “Never put your subject in the middle of the frame”. That’s another compositional rule to break, unless you’re shooting for a full-bleed double page spread! Continue reading “”

Lots of film work lately! More video to come…
Alive on Arrival
Steve Forbert’s debut album, Alive on Arrival was released in 1978 on his 22nd birthday, December 13. This foretelling unknown gem is still worth repeated listening. The original vinyl sounds great!
This is the motorsports complex we’ve been waiting for in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s what the Hermann Tilke designed track will look like – now available to pre-visualize on You Tube.
It’s the perfect location near Bremerton, Washington and a perfect road course with complex corners and elevation changes, just a short commute from the Seattle & Tacoma area. There will be secure car storage facilities available along with a service shop for members. Motocross and karting areas are also being planned. More to follow on this blog.
WELCOME TO THE BOOMTOWN
Seattle is and has always been different. That doesn’t mean it’s bad. It’s an assemledge of people from across the nation looking for learning, recreation and progressiveness, yet it remains reasonable (except for the more recent cost of living increases, homelessness, rioting and traffic problems).

A sincere thank you to the company and website Copilot for awarding me with this honor. I came across it recently and am thrilled to be included. Thank you Copilot!

FPT “KILLER SALMON” BOAT TEASER
Yes, I launched my DJI Phantom 4 V.2 drone from a moving camera boat and landed it on the same boat at a different location. Six times.
“Let’s get real. Serious fishermen like Tom Aliotti, owner of Aliotti Enterprises, know it’s not just about catching fish.
It’s about killer power and performance combining for that epic showdown on the water.
So get ready, because Tom’s ‘Killer’ salmon slayer powered by MSHS and FPT Industrial is coming to Bristol Bay, Alaska!”
-Justin Roeser of Roeser Engineering and Motor Services Hugo Stamp
Yes, this is what I look like today. I’m still intense and confident.
The harder the assignment is, the more intense and confident I become. That’s based on my decades of preparation with previous gigs involving serious research, risk, and preparation. Otherwise, I’d be scared to death (like most photographers should be today when faced with something they’ve never done before). Continue reading “”
THANKS TO FPT, ROESER ENGINEERING, AND ALIOTTI BOATS
What an amazing day on the water yesterday. We captured some amazing stills and drone footage for the Fiat Marine team and had a lot of fun in the process. Congratulations to everyone involved. Updates to follow as they become available.
