Thanks so much +Jason Rykiss! I love shooting the tide pools at La Jolla. I'd love to go back some time:)

The First Dance

I dabbled in wedding photography for the first time last month. I was the 2nd shooter for a friend of mine. It was definitely a different experience! I'm doing another wedding with her in a couple months.

Santa Monica Pier

Oh, hello there!  Thought I'd drop in for a hot second and see how everyone is doing and share something from my adventures last week.  It was fall break for my son at school, so we spent the week in California.  We had fun times at Universal Studios and exploring Santa Monica as well as Venice Beach.  Vacations never last long enough and then you always need a vacation from your vacation.  Also, I never care to go to LA again.  Their traffic is the worst!  It should never take 1.5 hours to drive 13 miles.

My collection of photos from yesterday's #TreyUSA photowalk in Downtown Phoenix. It was a toasty evening and we are all a sweaty mess by the end of it. Good times though! Hey, I'm even walking away with a complimentary Everyday Messenger Bag. Can't complain about that!

+George Fletcher - I'm pretty stoked for the bag! Won't get it until November sometime, but I guess I'll be patient. :)

To Get Away

I was just looking at my G+ profile and see that I've only posted 3 photos since August.  I guess I've been away for awhile.  I will probably continue to be away, but do better than 3 photos in 5 months.  Life has been good, although I haven't been doing a ton of photography.  I look forward to the adventures that await this year, especially getting back to California and taking more photos like this.

+George Fletcher - Definitely worth it!  That was my 3rd time in La Jolla.  One of my favorite places to go now.

Even the Small Ones Pack a Punch

We had a small storm cell pass by last night.  It wasn't very active at all, as I only got 3 shots with lightning in them, but this one was pretty decent.

+George Fletcher - It's a fool proof technique, but you just end up burning a lot of extra frames.

Horsetail Falls

Getting around to more photos from my time in Portland.  This is a great waterfall that doesn't require any hiking to get to.  It's just off the road making it quite convenient for anyone to see.

Introduction
Photography enthusiast based in Phoenix, AZ.  I studied photography for 7 years while in college and secondary school, mostly processing film back in those days and working in a darkroom.  I hesitated to adapt to new digital technologies, but have started to embrace it in the past year.  Now I couldn't imagine going back to using film.
