The Cobbler’s Corner Portrait

Giovanni D’Italia: The Cobbler's Corner I was driving back to my friends house from doing the shoot at the Elysian Cafe in Hoboken, when I had him immediately stop the car. Out of the corner of my eye I saw this shoe shop on the corner of 7th and Garden called Giovanni D’Italia. As we drove I noticed that there was just so much going on in such a little store- I HAD to get out of the car and try for a shot. Ipad in hand I went to…

The HDR Book

I'm pretty excited about this and figured i'd share. As soon as I finished the "Get Your Photography On The Web" book, i jumped right in and started working on book 2. This book would focus on the world of HDR Photography. I'm happy to say that the book is now available! Why You Will Want To Get This Book I dig running around making things into HDR works of art, as many people out there do. If you do a search on the bookshelf for HDR, you will find…

Al at the Elysian Cafe

My buddy Al loves this place called the Elysian Cafe in Hoboken, NJ. It's a great cafe/car in Hoboken, New Jersey that's got some really cool architecture in it. Tin ceilings, lots of little details - it was impossible NOT to want to shoot it in HDR so obviously we needed to give it a go. In order for me to be able to get the bar at a state where no one was around I needed to quickly be able to show how this could look cool, and convince…

The Tunnel of Trees

When traveling in Kauai, Hawaii for the DIgital Landscape Workshop Series with Moose Peterson, we passed this road of trees. I dont remember much of that time other than how completely serene the tunnel made me feel as we crossed through. A lot of me really wanted to be able to run out of the car and take a picture of it, but alas we had to get to the afternoon shoot. How happy was I that a few days later I would pass it on a trip to get…

Spinning Fire

So today was the last day of us shooting and working at Moose Peterson's Digital Landscape Workshop series in Kauai, Hawaii and the final show certainly did not disappoint.  We spent the last couple of days out shooting some incredible landscapes, but the workshop does have some cool portrait opportunities.  Like this one, with Paul meeting us on a reef at sunset and treating us to an incredible fire show. For the shoot, I was paired with a group of students focused on wanting to shoot the PocketWizard Flex TT5…

Hanging in Kauai

Hey everyone. Things have been a little dark here as i've been busy yammering about on the Twitters and Facebooks about the new book. The new book seems to be doing well, and I cannot be more grateful about that. At this point, what I can hope for is that if someone found the book useful, they should tell a friend. That always helps - and I thank you for it. The other reason things have been dark is that I was busy writing book 2 for our friends over…

A Thanks To All Of You

Hey everyone! Before I say anything else, I want to give everyone a very very warm THANK YOU for all of the support that you've given me over the last few days. I really wanted to get out there and write something that would solve problems for people who want to get themselves online. After selling out of books at Amazon (I think twice.) it looks like they are now back in stock and ready to go. This post isn't about links to go buy it or to tell you…

The Tampa Fair

The last couple of weeks have been a bit of a blur - running around writing and taking care of all of these projects that are in the air. Not that i'm complaining - it's been a blast being able to work on the books (more on that later), but I was beginning to feel a little atrophy on shooting and I needed to get out and try some stuff. Tripod and camera in hand I took off to the fair to see if I can get some cool shots.…
