Checked the web cams, doppler radar, and weather reports. Clear horizon, thunderstorms, and a beautiful view from Mount Tamalpais. Grabbed my camera, jumped in the car, and sped up here for the shot. Glad I decided to go, it was a beautiful sight.

Whenever I come to Lake Tahoe, I do my best to visit one of my favorite spots on the lake: the Bonsai Tree rock.
It seems to be a better known and traveled location now, with rough paths leading down the side of the windy road. Even with the huge storm and news about surfing on the crazy storm winds on the lake, it was fairly calm when we arrived. But within an hour, a huge storm rolled in.
We went from a blue sky day, to a roaring freezing storm that eventually covered the lake. This shot was the last you could see of the mountains in the distance before we were enveloped in wind, cloud, and snow.
Hi all. It's been awhile, and even when I do post, it's very rarely here. I feel like most people I follow and interact with are all active on Facebook or Tumblr.
I haven't been a great fan of google+ for photos, but I do love everyone I've connected with here.
I'll keep trying to come back, but if you guys have a Tumblr or Facebook, let me know! I'd love to follow you there.

Spent a few days in Utah last week shooting stills for Land Rover’s latest TV commercial, and had nothing but amazing weather. It’s always great working with such an amazing company. These guys really understand and value photography, as well as the stories that can be told with photos, beyond their usual studio shots. And, couldn’t have done it without my assistant and amazing model, Stacie! Thanks for braving the cold, you were awesome.
This is just a teaser, many more to come!
Happened upon this beauty while chasing sunset on Mount Tamalpais.

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and love to surround myself with friends and family. I'm a technology geek with an obsessive startup mentality, obsessed with photography, and love to play sports (basketball, tennis, and more).
I am an entrepreneur with a background in software engineering. Most notably, I founded a company in 2009, Fanvibe.com, backed by investors including Y Combinator, which was acquired in 2011 by beRecruited.com. I recently merged my love for photography with my passion for startups, and built a company as the CEO, Priime.com
I often write about ideas, methods, and the business around startups on my blog: http://artchang.com
I graduated from UC Santa Barbara’s College of Engineering with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2005. I've been developing and designing products in web and mobile platforms with large corporations and many of my own startups. I'm obsessed with disruptive apps, cutting edge tech, social game mechanics, social network development, software security, and all things code.
Photography is one of my biggest passions. Historically, it has been a hobby of capturing stories within still images. I photograph weddings, engagements, travel destinations, landscapes, various events, and many good cause events as a volunteer.
I shoot with a iPhone 4S and various Nikon SLR gear. I'm available to shoot events, weddings, and engagements. I am also always happy to volunteer my time to photograph good cause events.
