After The Storm

Photographed this cloudscape at the Woodlawn Boat Ramp in Gulf Breeze, Florida after a late afternoon storm past through the area. Shot with the Sony A7R using the Sony E 10-18mm f/4.0 lens. Figured I use the A7R a few more times since next week I will be trading in this camera for the new Sony A7RII.

The Gaillardia Galya

Photographed the Gaillardia Galya on the grounds of the Butterfly House in Navarre, Florida.  With this shot I was using the Sony A7R (1/160 sec at f/4.0, ISO 800) using the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS lens mounted on a tripod. With the setup I used the focus peaking feature.  Post processing was done with Capture One Pro 8.3.2.

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).
