    Firefighter Funeral

    On Saturday we lost a firefighter. While it's not been officially announced, most believe he suffered a heart attack at work during training, and didn't seek treatment. He passed away later that evening at home. The fire department contacted me to photograph the services on their behalf. I...

    360* Virtual Tours

    Does anyone have any experience taking 360Z photos and making them into virtual tours? I'm wanting to try my hand at this and am looking for suggestions on software to make the tour part. The 360* photos aren't the issue. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I read that too. But with them being expensive, I didn't want to fiddle with them. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    That's quite a compliment. Thank you. I truly had no idea what I'm doing here, and I started with the metallic watch. Boy was it a relief when I moved onto the leather watch... I shot this with a $30 speed light on my desk in my office. My reflector was a sun shade from my girlfriend's car...

    Hello! So a client of mine asked me to take some photos of a couple watches of his that he is selling. He is a real estate agent, and normally I photograph homes for him. I have exactly zero experience with product photography, give or take an intagram food shot or two. So, here is some of...

    Cedar Fire - On Scene (Wildland Fire) (Pic Heavy)

    These are the photos from the Cedar Fire, a wildland fire burning near me in California. It's currently at 22,000 acres and only 10% contained. Today was the first loss of property when 6 homes were destroyed. No lives lost thankfully. Due to the high number of images, I don't expect specific...

    Hike to Eagle Lake (El Dorado National Forest, CA, USA)

    The roughly 1 mile hike up some fairly steep hills was one of the best hikes I have ever done. You gain several hundred feet in elevation to end up at 7000 feet elevation. This puts you in the midst of a beautiful forest, surrounded by huge mountains. The journey was just as amazing as the...

    Lake Tahoe (and surrounding lakes)

    I recently visited Lake Tahoe. I didn't visit the lake itself, because it's too crowded. I prefer to hike into the mountains and find some less busy lakes. 1 Inspiration Point at night: 2 Eagle Falls: 3 Fallen Leaf Lake sunrise: 4 Fallen Leaf Lake: 5 Fallen Leaf Lake at night: 6...
