Las Vegas Workshop

My journeys into the desert are usually one of solace and being one with nature. This last trip was quite different. I was asked by the Vegas Pictage User Group to speak to them about WordPress and Search Engine Optimization for photographers. WordPress and S.E.O. are a couple topics I’ve been speaking about more and more. It’s really been so much fun teaching and sharing this kind of knowledge with others. I feel like the whole thing is snowballing into something really great and a wonderful expression that I enjoy more and more. As I move into creating a new […]

My Lil’ Sister Bonnie

Since I left San Diego for Thailand back at the beginning of 2005, I’ve only seen my little sister Bonnie once. But me and my Mom got a special treat this Christmas. Bonnie made her way all the way down from her place in Olympia to hang out for a few days. It was so awesome to see her and goof around, watch movies, crack jokes, and get her a highly coveted carne asada burrito (something Washington State apparently is lacking in). She had to drive back today, but before she left, I woke her butt up to go take […]

Big Rock at Low Tide | San Diego Fine Art Photography

I’ve obviously been spending quite a bit of time around La Jolla and Windansea lately. It’s hard to blame a fella when there is amazing rock formations and tide changes to photograph all day long. And in all honesty, I’ve been like a kid with a new toy since I got my Neutral Density filters. Here’s one at Big Rock, which is south of Windansea. When I was about 17 I ended up on the rock to the left while surfing one day. I quit surfing for good. But then I started again. What can I say? I love surfing as […]

Self-Portrait, Windansea

I love winter time in San Diego. The sun gets low enough in the sky for the full day, and I can photograph almost all day long if I want to. The above photo was taken at about three o’clock in the afternoon at Windansea Beach. The rich surfing history has always made it one of my favorite beaches in San Diego. The palm-frond shack behind me has been there since the 40’s and has always fascinated me for the brotherhood that surfers share. Some surfer built a shelter for his brothers to gather and story-tell about travels and life, […]

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I’m writing this post watching the Monday Night Football game, all bundled up, very sick with the flu after my trip to Texas, (wow, I hope it isn’t the swine flu…) It was a very difficult week with only one day of rest, but very rewarding. Despite coming ill, I feel that during this past week I’ve produced the best work of my life. That being said, I’d like to take the time to say “Thank You” to a number of people that made my trip, and the soon to come photos, possible. First and formost I’d like to thank […]

Fine Art Gallery is up!!!

I’ve finally worked through the beast of a catalog of fine art. landscape and travel photos I have accumulated over the last dozen years or so. They are constantly evolving of course, but this is a good break down of all the non-wedding photos I have. Looking through the photos of Thailand I noticed a trend start to emerge of strong portraits. I think at some point I will make a collection of just portraits of my various journeys. Thailand is a great place to shoot portraits. Everyone is so friendly and generous. “Dai Tairoop Mai?” is Thai for “Can […]
