Shooting A Sunset Over The Grand Canyon

By |July 18th, 2015|Photography, Story Behind The Photograph, USA, Videos|0 Comments

I had the amazing opportunity to take a family vacation to Arizona and was able to spend the day at the Grand Canyon. After spending time with my family there this afternoon, my wife arranged for me to go back on my own to shoot the sunset. It was a breathtaking experience. I’ve travelled all over the world, but can’t think of any place that wowed me as much as the Grand Canyon.

The skies were […]

By |October 17th, 2014|iPhone Photography, Photography, Tips & Techniques, USA, Videos|0 Comments

This is a quick look at the apps and techniques I used to create this fun Iron Man composite of my son in one of his costumes. These tips can be applied in many ways and their are many apps that can do it. I have several “multiple exposure” or “compositing” apps, but like the Union interface and ease of use to quickly get great results.

I have been shooting photography with my iPhone since the original came out.  At one point in time I considered it an art of its own, but now incorporate it into all of my work – from photos to videos.  The quality is very good and the ability to edit and share photos on the fly is amazing.  I even process some of my photos from other cameras on my iPhone because I really like […]

Interview with Peruvian Photographer Mario Borda

By |May 23rd, 2014|Humanitarian, Peru, Photography, Tips & Techniques, Uncategorized, Videos|0 Comments

When in the Peruvian Amazon jungle, the most feared creature should be the Mario Borda. He may try to charm you with his big smile, good looks, and quick whit, but be warned…he is dangerously good with a camera – a sharp shooter that always hits the target. I was able to capture this wild beast and sit him down for a short interview to see how he thrives in his environment.

Shooting The Reef In Roatan, Honduras At Sunrise

By |March 2nd, 2014|Featured, Honduras, PhotoBlog, Photography, Tips & Techniques, Travel, Videos|0 Comments

On my last day in Roatan, Honduras I woke up early to capture HDR images of the beach outside my hotel at sunrise. The sun was rising behind me, but the color of the light was still seen on the clouds in the sky on my side of the island. It was the only morning I had available because every other day we were up early to travel to the island of St. Helene. In […]

Roatan Reef From the Sky

Overlooking the reef in the West Bay of Roatan. The water is clear and the reefs are incredible which attracts many snorkelers and divers. I only had 30 minutes of daylight left, so it was a short, but beautiful swim to the end of this peninsula.

This morning I returned before our flight out to get some footage and pictures with a DJI Phantom and GoPro. […]

The past few days my main transportation has been by boat. While traveling today I saw this scene of Little Pigeon Key and thought it looked like a postcard. I quickly grabbed my camera from my bag and created a few frames.

I also enjoyed my first deep sea fishing adventure and met some fascinating people. Tomorrow I return home, so I wanted to send this […]

11year old Edwin is excited about the water that now flows from a new water tap at his home. Like other women and children on Saint Helena (Santa Elena), he used to walk to get water when it was available. One of the main sources of their water was rain, but that wasn’t always available. Now, thanks to Operation Blessing International, every family on the island has water readily available […]
