Photo Of The Day : “Stanford Corridor”

Yet another fish eye photo I took on the Stuck in Stanford PhotoWalk led by +Trey Ratcliff, +Lisa Bettany, +Brian Rose, and +Vincent Mo. If you look carefully, there is a cool camera flash at the bottom of the staircase on the left 🙂


Photo Of The Day : “Moon Over Stanford”

This is another photo from the Trey Ratcliff (Stuck In Customs) photo walk at Stanford University on August 11, 2011. This was an amazing event, with over 200 photographers! All organized through my new obsession, Google+. This was the first Google+ Flash mob, and may have been a world record for a photo walk. Although Trey thinks it may have been 5 or 10 people shy of his Austin Photowalk. Thank you Bay Area traffic!

Also, below the photo I took, is a group photo taken by Peter Adams (https://plus.google.com/106983800549406471589/posts)

If you are not on Google+ and you love photography, you NEED to be. It’s a great place for photographers to interact and share their work. Even if you are not a photographer, it is a great place to find new photographers. You need an invite though, but I have plenty to send! (You must add me to your circle though 🙂


Photo Of The Day : “The Tug Boat”

I am really curious to what the name of the barge is. I am thinking the language is Russian, but can’t be sure sure, since I cannot type those characters into my stupid American keyboard. Anyone out there have an idea? This was taken from the Commodore Events yacht while shooting the wedding of Angelina and Arthur Brooks!


Photo Of The Day: “The Leaf”

Trying my hand out at Macro Photography. This was taken on the hike to Waimea Falls in the North Shore of O’ahu, Hawaii.

Photo Of The Day “Bay Bridge Sunset”

Have I said how much I love working for Commodore Events? Part of my job requires me to be on boats in the middle of the San Francisco Bay on beautiful May days with amazing sunsets falling behind the Bay Bridge. Life is rough. I am actually very happy I was able to get this photo as clear as it is, since the very choppy condition of the water made for an incredibly difficult shoot. This was probably the most challenging shoot of my career, but obviously, well worth it!

Photo Of The Day: “The God Of Cool”

You never know what you are going to see in the Napa Valley wine country. Such as this awesome statue at the Jacuzzi Family Vineyards. This was spotted during the annual April in Carneros event. Can anyone tell me which greek god this is?

Photo Of The Day : “Hawaiian Hibiscus”

Knowing that I was only going be in Hawaii for 72 hours, I had this grand vision of waking up in the morning, going straight out to the beach, setting up shop, drinking margaritas, mai thais, and beers all day and lighting a bonfire at night and not moving until it was time to go to bed. Or just sleep on the beach. Why not? Well imagine my shock and disappointment when it rained about 66 of the 72 hours I was there! But what started as disappointment quickly turned into a sense of gratefullness, as we may not have gone to the beautiful Waimea Falls. This park is filled with everything a photographer could ask for. Birds, flowers, trees, rivers, waterfalls. It was paradise! This is a hibiscus, still wet from the last brief rainfall.

Photo Of The Day “Hawaiian Peacock”

I was lucky enough to take a last minute trip to the North Shore of O’ahu with my friend and his beautiful wife and kids, as well as his sister, her husband and their kids. Talk about a crash course in parenting! I am glad I got to spend this amazing few days with them before Mother’s day came upon us. Having no children of my own, it really gave me a better appreciation to what a parent has to go through on a daily basis. Happy Mother’s day!

Anyway, it wasn’t the tropical vacation I had necessarily envisioned. I dreamt of hot sun, warm sand, and cold Coronas. Instead I got mild temperatures, wet sand, and lots of STRONG rain. But hey, the Coronas were still cold! But without that rain and clouds, I don’t know if we would have made it to the beautiful Waimea Falls. This park consists of beautiful flowers and plants, gushing rivers, roaring waterfalls, and active wildlife. I was lucky enough to find a peacock who didn’t mind posing for the camera.


Photo Of The Day : “Wine Country Tulip”

A beautiful spring scene, taken at the Ceja Vineyards &Winery in Napa, California during the April in Carneros event. If you ever find yourself in Napa by Ceja, GO!!! Salsa dancing, bocce ball, and wine tasting. What else do you need?

Photo Of The Day “Týn Cathedral”

“Týn Cathedral”

Ok, so I am officially in panic mode. I took thousands of photos in Europe. But, since this was a play trip, and not work, processing these photos became a monumental task. I would select certain photos here and there, process and upload. But since photography IS my full time job, client photos come first. So, alas, my Euro Raw files went on my Western Digital external hard drive, patiently waiting to be processed. Well, my WD hard drive (less than 6 months old) just stopped working. Out of the blue. Yay. So I brought it into the Geek squad at best buy, and they said there was an 80% chance that they would be successful. Well of course, with my luck, they weren’t. So now I am faced with the possibility that every raw file on my external hard drive is now GONE forever, including 3 weeks documenting my first trip to Europe. SWEET! Thank you Western Digital! Lesson learned though. I will be taking further steps in the future to have my files backed up on more than one device or on the cloud (although the cloud is insanely expensive).

So with my rant out of the way, I decided to share a photo from Europe I haven’t shared before. Maybe it will help ease the pain I am going through? 😦

This is the Týn Cathedral located in the Old Town Square in Prague, Czech Republic. Prague has some of the most incredible buildings in the world. A photographer’s dream city!
