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 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 “Buster Posey, World Champ”

A little teaser photo from an awesome San Francisco Giants fundraiser benefit I was lucky enough to photograph last night onboard the amazing Cabernet yacht owned by Commodore Events. I love working for Commodore, especially for nights like this! Mix Master Mike from the Beastie Boys was spinning beats for the 400+ 30-somethings in attendance. It was a GREAT party….I can’t wait for the next one!

This photo speaks for itself. Buster Posey autographed bat, with a mini World Series Trophy in front of a photo of Buster holding the trophy…..ah, what a year!

Photo Of The Day “The Storms A Coming”

In the San Francisco Bay Area, the last couple of weeks have felt more like April than February. Crystal clear blue skies, bright sun, temperatures in the 60’s. So alas, all good things must come to an end. When I checked the weather today, and saw the next 6 days call for heavy rain, I decided I had to try to get one last good sunset in before the storm. So I threw the camera, the tripod, and the dog in the car and sped on down to Rodeo Beach in Sausalito. I had aover an hour to spare before the sunset, so I spent most of that time taking shots of the surfers, who, judging by the large number of them in the water, had the same “now or never” attitude when they checked the weather forcast.

Photo Of The Day: “Golden Seagull”

For some reason, I have been obsessed with photographing birds lately. I think maybe it’s the challenge? Chasing a fast flying bird with your camera, trying to get the frame right, with a fast enough shutter to make sure there is no blur. Timing a shot just right to get the landing. The whole art of shooting birds (and wildlife in general) is fun, challenging, and extremely rewarding.

Luckily, everything I describe above doesn’t pertain to this shot, because luckily this guy didn’t move. I actually like to think he was posing for me. “Hey, look, let me go stand on this rail right in front of the Golden Gate Bridge and give you a nice side look. That would look cool for you, right?”

Thanks little guy. It does look cool

Ok, we are back!

It had been a while since I had gone to my favorite spot in Marin County to shoot the sunset. When I could see the clouds forming for a great sunset, I quickly hopped in my car and sped down the 101 South to the last exit before the Golden Gate. On the way out to the beach, I saw this out of the corner of my left eye, and quickly had to pull over as I could not let this image pass. It was so good, even one of the Golden Gate National Recreation employees was out there shooting the scene with his iPhone.

Photo Of The Day: “Shot Through The Park”

I have passed this piece of art on the Embarcadero in San Francisco many times, but had never photographed it. Walking to the Giants game from the Ferry terminal last week, I saw this angle and knew I had to shoot it.

Getting excited to go to Europe on Tuesday, although am still totally unprepared. But have a feeling I am gonna get some great shots!

GO GIANTS!
