Another photo illustration up on the blog. This was an engagement shoot where not much was going on with our setting, so I decided to use an outtake and turn it into the main event. 
I've known Jamie since high school. She is one of the most laid back, easy going people I know and her betrothed, Jack, is just as easy going. Despite what the intro photo illustration might imply, we had a very relaxed engag...

Last weeks photo critique. Forgot to share it. I'm starting to get a little more instructional with my critiques rather than just providing commentary. Check it out.

Alright, photographer friends! I've teamed up with 3 other photographers and one rotating student photographer to start offering weekly critiques. They're honest, serious critiques like the kind we used to get in art school. None of this pointless back patting or needless negativity that you see in most forums. Each one of us has a area of the photo we focus on. For my part I look at post processing. 

If this is something that you or someone you know could benefit from, please head on over to the site and consider submitting. We got our first post up today with many more on the horizon.

Another speed illustration with this wedding. Thought I'd try my hand at almond blossoms. 
No, the blossoms weren't falling like that. Check out the video at the end of the blog to see how I put this one together. Talk about a fast wedding. Anita and Tony got in touch with me about their wedding just a few sho...

An after dark wedding at Seven Sycamores in Ivanhoe. 
I’ve long held the belief that in times of great need the universe will often put people in our paths that possess the power to help us through our troubles. It’s up to us to decide where we go from there. Sometimes we get so...

I shut up the responsible voice in my head long enough to spend some time on a photo that would have been lost altogether. 
While I'm pretty much caught up on work, I'm way behind on sharing. This is a two part senior portrait session where the first part was done in fall and the latter in spring. The crazy thing about it is that the photos from f...

Just a quick update for anyone interested in photography related stuff. I've teamed up with Aaron Draper and a few other photographers to start providing photo critiques. Five photographers, each with their own niche, give th...

Graduating college is a big deal. It should be an even bigger deal than graduating high school since there's no one there to hold your hand. What better way to recognize that than through an announcement portrait session that captures you in your element doing what you love? 
One of our favorite high school seniors is now a college senior. Say what?! Translation: I’m old. Jessica is graduating from Saint Mary’s College of California this year so I packed up the car, headed out to the college ...

Beautiful same sex wedding I had the privilege to help photograph. 
Abraham Lincoln had a practice of leaving letters of great import to sit on his desk over night before sending them out. His wife Mary would often throw them away if he grew too passionate in his responses, or he’d simply rew...

Groom had a great idea for an anniversary gift. 
Just a quick post about something really cool I got to work on a couple weeks back. Two years ago today we shot Rick and Denise's wedding. It was filled with wonderful little details that everyone put a lot of time, effort, a...

Story
Introduction
You might have caught me as a student on creativeLIVE with Zack Arias or come across my ongoing project, 70in70, an attempt to photograph all of the closing state parks in California. I attended the Academy of Arts in San Francisco as an animation major before switching over to get a BA in English at CSU Stanislaus. 

I've been a sign maker, graphic designer, retoucher, and now photographer. For me, the photograph starts far before the shutter is released and continues well past that moment.
