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 “Only In San Francisco – The Naked Man Bicycle Club”

“Only In San Francisco– The Naked Man Bicycle Club”

On Saturday, April 23rd, we took our buddy Sean to the San Francisco Giants game to celebrate his birthday. While having a pregame lunch at Tres Agaves restaurant, we were surprised when we looked out the window in front of our table to the site of a couple gentleman riding bicycles in nothing more than helmets and shoes. Now this was funny, yet we were very hungover from the night before, not to mention a mouth full of Mexican food, so it was also slightly sickening. After a couple seconds, they were gone. Now, the photographer in me was pretty bummed about missing this very uniquely San Francisco photograph. But to my luck, while we were standing out front after lunch, more bikers! After getting a great photo of my buddy Tom in front of the the merry nude bicyclist, I was able to snap this classic San Francisco photograph.

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 Graffiti Through The T-1000”

“The Graffiti through the T-1000

When I look at this HDR photograph, I can’t help but think of the bad ass T-1000 Terminator in the movie Terminator 2. You know, the Governator would shoot him with a shotgun, or run over him with a garbage truck, and this unstoppable force of awesomeness would turn liquid metal and quickly regenerate. This scenes is right about when he get shot in the shoulder with Ahnald’s shotgun.

The metal is actually a deteriorating door at a old Army bunker in the Marin Headlands, Sausalito, California.

Photo Of The Day “The Bird Of Tiburon”

“The Bird Of Tiburon”

So, after hearing all week about the possibility of snow in San Francisco, the weekend came and went with not an of snow, rain, hail, sleet, or any kind of moisture for that matter. Yes, it got cold, but the skies were clear, and the wind was calm. This bird even found it nice enough to sit back and enjoy the view of San Francisco from the waterfront of Tiburon.

Oh, and believe it or not, there is a blimp in this photo.

Photo Of The Day: “Valley”

“Valley”

HDR Photograph of a hiking trail leading down Mount Tamalpias towards Mill Valley, California (Marin County)

Another oldie. This is from what I call my “rookie season” of HDR photography. I believe this was taken in 2007. This was taken hiking up the Hoo Koo E Koo Trail from Kentfied, California up to Mount Tamalpias. I have been told quite often that it looks a Casper David Friedrich or a Claud Lorraine painting!
