Rick Sammon is one of my favorite photographers,  and this image is one of the best I have seen!

I was lucky enough to meet Col. Anderson and receive a signed copy of his book. It was a wonderful read, exciting real life adventure.

This is my favorite image from 2010 Mavericks surf competition. Along with a little bit of artistic license. The wave is about 40 feet tall. Copyright 2010 Les Baldwin

Best use of Duct Tape EVER!
 
Awesome video of the day: Australian surfer duct-tapes paralyzed woman to his back and hits the waves.

I think it is very cute!! I love orange sicles, and home made is better!! If the goal was to say "Summer Day" I think you headed in the right direction!! Thinking of terms, titles, and captions helps too. I can so see a little kid eating one of these with it spread from one ear to the other LOL
 
I would love some feedback on this shot. It was shot with a Nikon D5100 18-55m1 lense ISO 2000 1/400 F10

Introduction
Unique image creation is what drives my soul...

I "SEE" images everywhere.

Even though this is a business and my profession, I am still a kid at heart.
I Love the challenge of the photographic process. Creating an image that the client values, and that I enjoy as well.

From large commercial jobs for Fortune Corporations, to the wonderful expression of a portrait..
I will create images that exceed your needs and still stay within a reasonable budget.
