WOW

When I respond, “Wow”, it is for one of two reasons. It either means, “I’m really impressed”, or it means, “I am utterly at a loss for words”.

When I say, “that’s hilarious”, it only means one thing: “Are you kidding?”

Most of the time I don’t talk and just listen.

Most importantly, I never call myself a “master photographer”.

7 Tips For Starting out as a “Professional” Photographer

VINYL IS HOT

In the last five years new vinyl LP sales in the USA have doubled to over 30 million units sold per year. That’s more than new CD sales today, and these numbers don’t include used record purchases.

Prior to 2016, the sales numbers for new vinyl was increasing but not anywhere this rate. Only problem is, most everything currently released on LP is on backorder. This is primarily due to increased demand and decreased supply (due in no small part to the small number of pressing plants and the lack of vinyl pellets). See this for more:

THIS IS WHAT THE WORLD FEELS LIKE SOMETIMES

I made this photograph of endless waves in stormy weather in the late ’90s at Newport Beach, Rhode Island. It’s always struck a nerve with me.

THE ROAD TRAVELED

Congrats to Luke Veselic on his feature in the latest issue of Porsche Panorama Magazine. We traveled to the furthest back roads of the Santa Monica mountains north of Los Angeles to write about and photograph the 1982 911 SC Targa that Luke inherited from his father and a 2019 911 Carrera T that Luke recently purchased.

The light that evening was magical and made for some great photos and memories.

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!”

NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY GONE ROGUE

After visiting Death Valley National Park a couple of years ago for the first time in decades, I found my familiar space of solitude shattered forever.

At one time, it was an environment where I could reliably go and find solace. Maybe a couple of photographers would climb the sand dunes at dawn to be alone in nature, listening to the wind as the sun rose.

There were no parking lots next to the sand dunes back then. Now there’s a big one full of SUVs and Sprinter vans before the sun rises. Continue reading “”
