Yesterday (1/21/17) brought some major storms through the area. Of course with storms come surf action as I captured this surfer at Pensacola Beach Florida from the fishing pier as he took advantage of the high surf. For this shot I was using the Sony A7RM2 with the Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM Lens handheld. #surf   #surfing   #surfers   #surfersparadise   #watersports

This 50 foot vessel washed up on shore on the Gulf Island National Seashore on the grounds of Fort Pickens in Florida in December 2016. As of now it remains a mystery on how it ended up on the beach.

This afternoon I was back out photographing the surfers at Pensacola Beach Florida. Captured these images from the fishing pier as the surfers were on the East side of the pier. Today I was testing the Sony FE 70-200mm F/2.8 GM OSS lens on the Sony A7RM2. Set up the A7RM2 in crop sensor mode in order to get the extra reach (300mm). Also used the uncompressed mode which gives me about a 40mb file. This combination worked well for me. The auto focus maybe a bit slower on the A7RM2 then the A6300 along with only capable of 6 frames per sec, but the overall results are still good. Again I have been very happy since trading in the F/4 version for this new FE F/2.8 version last week.

Post processing was done entirely with Capture One Pro 10.0.

This Pelican seemed very happy to pose for the camera as it was hanging out in downtown Pensacola, Florida near Palafox Pier.

There has been some fairly good surfing over the past couple weeks at Pensacola Beach Florida. Captured this surfer with the Sony A7RM2 using the Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS lens. 1/3200 sec at f/2.8 ISO 100. Post process with Capture One Pro 10.0. Have a great Saturday. Cheers!

This afternoon I finally had a chance to try out the new Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM lens that I received last Friday. Had been waiting for it for over three months since I order it. Traded in the Sony FE 70-200mm F4 at a local dealer where I purchase most of my gear.

I found the lens to be fast for focusing and sharp. Only had time to give it a try on the Sony A6300. Still need to give it a try on the Sony A7RM2. The only real downfall I found with this lens beside price is the fact it is heavy compared to the F4 version. I also have the Sony FE 1.4x Teleconverter on order. Hope to have my hands in that in the few days.

These shots where taken at Pensacola Beach Florida from the Pensacola Beach Fishing Pier. Surfers were on the East side of the pier.

Story
Tagline
Photography is more than a profession for me. It's a passion, the way I try to capture and celebrate life with photographs.
Introduction

I have now been a freelance photographer since leaving the military. It was during my tour of duty in the military that I first found an interest in photography. The first paid assignment was a wedding of a friend and I have never looked back. Today I no longer do wedding photography, but put more focus toward my scenic and commercial work. 

Last year (2014) I did the complete switch from DSLR (Canon) cameras to Mirroless (Sony).
