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 : “Top Of The Mark”

I know I haven’t had many “Photo Of The Day” posts lately. This hotel project has been kicking my butt hard. 8-12 hours of straight shooting per day, not including any processing! As stressful as it can be, every day I look at an amazing view like this, and I am quickly reminded that I have THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD! This is taken from the “Top Of The Mark” restaurant and bar, on the top level of the Mark Hopkins hotel in San Francisco, California

Photo(s) Of The Day: “Corte Madera Standoff”

Marin County California isn’t exactly known for it’s exciting “police activity”. It is a relatively safe place, which most crimes being DUI, weed smoking teenagers, and bar fights. So when I was driving to get my dog some food from the pet store and heard there was an armed gunman holding hostages a half mile away, I hightailed it! I got there right after he let all the hostages go, but he wanted to stay in and get his point across. Apparently, he was mentally unstable, and had a bone to pick with Bank Of America for “short changing” him. He even asked to speak to President Barrack Obama as part of his negotiation. Anyway, about 5 and a half hours after the standoff started, the gunman surrendered. Upon inspection of his weapon, it was determined to be a Pellet Gun.

In the shots of the bank’s corner window, you can clearly see the gunman. My guess is his mental state prevented snipers from taking the 8,432 clear kill shots they must have had.

Here are just a couple photos I took. There is alot more in this gallery, including snipers! Check it out at

Photo Of The Day: “Jailed City…….with a Sailboat!”

“Jailed City…….with a Sailboat!”

This may look very similar to another photo I have buried here in my Landscape Photography Portfolio. It is called “Jailed City” You can see it here

http://www.mb-photography-sf.com/Landscapes/Landscape/11161093_TQL9m#805715204_UUPfT-A-LB

I took that a couple of years ago. Anyway, last week, I decided to revisit Tiburon, California to take some new photos. The water, clouds and the sky looked VERY alike the day I took “Jailed City” When I saw this sailboat coming from stage left, I decided to try to recreate that photo, but this time, with a nice, happy sailboat blocking Alcatraz Prison!

Photo Of The Day : “The Hills, The Gate, The City”

The Hills, The Gate, The City”

Taking my friend and favorite photography student Jenny up to the Marin Headlands in Sausalito, California at sunset to teach her about lighting, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, didn’t give me much time to shoot my own photos, but I did manage to get this HDR photograph. I honestly think I have only taken one other photo of the Golden Gate Bridge from the vantage point. May be a pretty good place to shoot the sunrise!

Photo Of The Day : “The Pirates Of San Francisco”

So, at least I wasn’t the only person out on the bay on Super Bowl Sunday! Leaving Alameda, California on a Commodore Events Yacht (http://www.commodoreevents.com) I saw these old pirate boats coming into the channel from San Francisco Bay. I was amazed at their design, look, and beauty. Who they are, what they were doing, I will never know. But I hope to find out! If anyone knows who these boats may belong to, let me know

Photo Of The Day: “Cavallo Point Sunset”

Last night, I found myself heading to the Adobe headquarters to participate in a Photoshop user group demonstration by the knowledgeable and very entertaining, Russell Brown. Check out his Adobe Photoshop tips and tricks here. Learned some cool stuff! Plus he has a TON of very cool photoshop actions, that he makes available for everyone to download (such as being able to create a star trails photo, with just one star photo!)

Anyway, I had some time to spare before heading into San Francisco, so I decided to stop at Cavallo Point in Sausalito, to catch some sunset shots of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. This was the very first photo I took when I got out of my car, and as far as I can tell, the best of the shoot!

Photo Of The Day “Grazing Pony”

My “9-5” job is that I photograph real estate listings here in the San Francisco Bay Area for a visual marketing company. I received notification of a new listing that needed my services in Point Reyes. Getting a job in West Marin is not very common, so I was very excited.  I love West Marin, but don’t get out there enough. So I decided to make a day out it. Sunset on a deserted beach in Point Reyes? Yes please! Well, todays photo is not said sunset, but it is instead a cute little horse I saw on the road on by Nicasio.

Photo Of The Day : “Fireball Bridge”

The couple for the wedding I am shooting next week needed some last minute photographs, primarily one to print and display at their post ceremony reception. So as the ever so helpful photographer I am, I offered to help take a new one and expedite it. Since it was last minute, I just decided to take them up to the Marin Headlands and get the standard couple over the bridge photograph, although I think these are much better. I may post one later!

But while up there, the sun was setting and the sky was phenomenal. A typical Bay Area winter day. So I decided to work for myself for a split second, and captured this 5 exposure HDR.

Photo Of The Day : “The Wine Menu”

One of the greatest privileges of living in the Bay Area is that some of the most acclaimed wine country in the world is only a quick 30 minute drive! Nicholson Family Winery is one of our favorites. The grounds are beautiful, the people friendly, and the wine is tasty!
