Looking Up

The other day I headed over to Naval Live Oaks in Gulf Breeze, Florida to do a short hike. Was just carrying my Sony A7R with the Sony FE 24-70mm f/4 lens. This time I decided to just look up to capture some interesting tree shots.

Reeling In The Big One

Out early this morning on Pensacola Fishing Pier at Pensacola Beach Florida and was just in time to capture this guy reel in the big one. He hooked himself a 51lb Cobia. It took nearly 45 minutes working this guy until he could bring him in with the help of two of his friends.

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).

Cameras
