    Mirrorless for backpacking the PCT? Sony A6000?

    Ok folks. Some of you may know that my 6D just died thanks to a hug from a friendly wave while at the beach. Now I'm getting an insurance payoff for the broken body/lens, and I'm in a bit of a spot. You see, in April I'm hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, and photographing all 2,665 miles of it...

    Goodnight, sweet prince.

    Just a reminder to everyone that **** happens, and perhaps that insurance is a good idea when it comes to higher-end gear. I've photographed some pretty sketchy spots along the coast, and my 6D has gotten its fair share of sea-spray and drizzles. It has always held up well. Yesterday, a near 15...

    City Surfer

    Taken way back in February, but never edited for some reason. This guy was surfing just under the Golden Gate Bridge, around Fort Point. None of my landscapes panned out that day (Carl the fog didn't show in time), but I'm reasonably happy with this one in hindsight :)

    Noah's Arc

    Sometimes, I wander. I wander down ravines. I wander to the sea. I wander onto cliffs. I wander, in search of photos. Last week, I found one. I had already shot a landscape which I thought would be decent, so I packed up the tripod and walked up the coast. Turning off abandoned railroad...

    Saskia | Beach | Lifestyle

    Only recently got around to editing some shots from a quick coastal shoot I had last weekend. The model, Saskia, hadn't done a shoot before, but was quite the trooper between the wind and cold. I wanted to go for something a bit more lifestyle than I normally do. 1. Saskia by Austin Greene, on...

    Naga | Lee Big Stopper

    Got out yesterday for a bit of landscape hunting at some new beaches. Next thing I know, I'm sitting on a cliff with my tripod out, shooting this massive spine of rock with a 20+ ft deep gorge carved out on one side of it. It reminded me so much of a massive sea serpent. I had to wait about an...

    Whale Tale | Story Post | Pic Heavy

    I've been sick for the past week, but I needed to get out and take some photos so I headed to Mori Point near Pacifica, CA. About a week prior, a large female humpback had washed up, believed to have been killed via boatstrike. A necropsy determined that she did indeed have 5 fractured...

    Mary - NSFW

    Got back out to Treasure Island near San Francisco for a shoot yesterday. It was a blast! I'd have several of these shots floating around in my head for over a month now, so it was nice to finally see them become a reality. Plus I had a fantastic model, who didn't mind broken glass everywhere...

    The nieces

    Tried taking a quick snap of the nieces the other day as a potential mothers day gift to my sister. A lot of the value is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose, so I'm betting she'll like the image more than I do. Our background was damn limited and we had some...behavioral issues. I'm just not...

    Stranger: Loid

    "Hold on a minute, I'll look cool." Those were some of the first words Loid said to me when I asked if I could take his photo. Loid and I go way back. All total, we've known each other for about 5 minutes. I met Loid while walking towards the Tenderloin area of downtown San Francisco, near the...

    Stranger: David | Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II

    A boy ducked below a prop wagon on the streets of Mountain View, looking to investigate its less-than-authentic wooden spoke wheels. The sign read "Calendars" and the front of the cart had editions featuring cats, elephants, americana, and photos from places most people will never get to visit...

    Stranger: Micah

    Meet Micah. I was walking down the street in downtown Mountain View, and next thing I know, I hear acoustic guitar and vocals streaming out of a side-alley. Turning the corner, I see Micah, singing his heart out to the fantastic acoustics of the hallway. I point to the camera with a "Can I?"...

    Hoverdog Races | UC Davis Doxie Derby

    Not looking for critique, these are just simply "just for fun" junker shots. Every year at UC Davis' Picnic Day, the Doxie Derby is held. Literally about a thousand or more people show up to watch weiner dogs with ridiculous names like Pickles or Team Pancake race down the track. The owners are...

    Sho | Canon 24-70 f/2.8L mk2 | Natural Light

    I'll admit it, I've been on a huge black and white kick ever since I picked up this lens. I have no idea why. I've been shooting in black and white, editing in black and white, and not even wanting to view the images in color. I hosted a small, impromptu workshop with the UCD Photo Club this...

    Growing Up Chinatown | 24-70 Test Run | Street Portrait

    Yesterday, I went out into the streets of SF with a friend to really put the new Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II through its paces. On our second pass of the Chinatown fish market, I looked into a shallow alleyway and noticed this open door, with a brother and sister sitting at the base of it. What...

    *Heavy Breathing*

    Just ordered the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L mk II! I've been shooting a lot of portraits lately, and with weddings scheduled starting next month I decided the lens would be a worthwhile business expense. Plus, it will be the first piece of gear I've bought that has been entirely paid for with money from...

    Treasure Island, Explored | Urban Exploration

    I finally got around to editing shots from a trip I made to Treasure Island a few weeks ago. For those who don't know, the island is man-made, and is largely abandoned. In the past it served as a dump, naval base, host of the World's Fair, and more. Now, only a few people live on it. My friend...

    Tyler + Adriena | Engagement :)

    I had probably one of my best engagement sessions this past weekend. Almost moved to a different beach due to the crowds, but I'd been scouting this one for weeks and felt like we could make it work. Next thing I know, I'm waist deep in the waves shooting with the 70-200 2.8 II. I'm really...

    Lost My Light in the Lupines

    Eh, I was super excited for this shoot, but things simply didn't pan out. Took me a bit to arrange for a model, next thing I know we're out there wandering around the lake, looking for these flowers which were supposedly everywhere. BS, I tell you. It wasn't until about a minute before sunset...

    Road to Nowhere | Lee Big Stopper | Mountain View, CA

    We had some epic clouds yesterday from a storm that was passing through. Unfortunately, they didn't feel like showing up on the coast, so I stayed back and decided to shoot more locally. I remembered the intervalometer this time, so a bit more blur for those who're privy to my last thread's...
