Shooting a Harley…

About a month ago I got a really neat opportunity to work with Harley Davidson and world renown motorcycle tuner Vance and Hines here in Indianapolis on a project that I had no idea the scope of when I agreed to do it.  The call came in very last minute (As sometimes they do) from…Read More


The New Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN C…

Any time anybody comes out with anything photographically new, I get excited.  Whether it’s something I’m expressly interested in or not I get excited.  So when Sigma announced that they were coming out with a Sigma 30mm F1.4 for the smaller DX style image circle but it was for Micro 4/3 and Sony E-mount I…Read More


Thoughts on the NEW Nikon D5…

As a pro, finding a camera that truly speaks to you is important.  That’s why every couple of years when a new Professional level camera is released it’s a big thing for everyone, not just one pro or another.  Usually a flagship camera is like a flagship car in that it’s got ALL the bells…Read More


Mobile Storage…

I read someplace that March 31st was National Computer Storage day, or some such.  I can’t find anything about it on the internet, but World Backup Day, and in honor of hearing this I’ve decided to do a blog about something I get asked quite frequently which is; what do I do for my mobile…Read More


Hockey Photography Workshop Recap…

Last weekend, after I finished up a stressful run of work lasting about three weeks, I had the incredible pleasure of hosting what I think was the third Roberts Camera Hockey Photography workshop, hosted by the Indy Fuel.   I think this was the third one, but I’m having trouble verifying that.  Originally we did this…Read More


Swimming and Diving…

The Nikon 300F4 For Sports?

Since it’s release Nikon’s newest 300mm F4 AF-S VR lens has caused quite a stir.  The original lens was fantastic in terms of size and portability, but it was also too slow for most anything in my experience.  Granted, it was not as slow as my Nikon 85F1.4D lens, nor was it as slow as…Read More


EDU EXPO 2016…

At the very end of January I had the incredible honor of being asked by Phottix and the PhotoVideoEDU group to do a workshop at their EDU Expo hosted by Roberts Camera.  It was an incredible event that consisted of some incredibly talented photographers and videographers from around the United States who are full time…Read More


Looking Back on 2015…

December 31st.  End of another year and beginning of the next one.  As I was young I was taught that it’s the Journey, not the destination that is important but really life is the journey and not the time between January 1st and Dec 31st yes? It’s nice to be able to break it up…Read More


The NEW Sigma 20mm F1.4 Review…

For years and years photographers of the “old school” of thought swore by their prime lenses like they were the air they breathed.  For years back in the day on film zoom lenses really were nothing but a good way to carry a range of focal lengths in your bag while *possibly* getting something that…Read More
