The NEW Nikon Z7…

This blog may seem a little-delayed considering that there is a lot of press out now about the NEW Nikon Z7 out already, and the Nikon Z6 should have shipped and be in the hands of folks by the time you read this, but I felt as though the first week of having the Nikon…Read More


The NEW Sigma 60-600F4.5-6.3 OS Sport!

Recently I made a post about the Red Bull AirRace, and teaching a photo workshop/expedition with Roberts, Sigma, and Benro.  What I didn’t mention is that at the race Sigma had planned on having me demo their NEW Sigma 60-600F4.5-6.3OS Sport for feedback/Review.

A few years ago I wrote a blog post about World Backup Day.  (read about it here).  Now, a few years later I think it’s about time that this topic is revisited as we once again land on World Backup Day.  If you don’t back up your work in at least two places; you should. …Read More
