The NEW Sigma 12-24F4…

In September Sigma shocked the world with not only their announcement of the NEW Sigma 500F4 Sports, on top of the NEW Sigma 85F1.4 Art, but also the announcement of the NEW Sigma 12-24F4.  Why is this a big deal? Well as usual Sigma has followed the lead of the competition in Canon and Nikon…Read More


The NEW Sigma 500F4…

Hello again! So while you were all taking in the review I wrote about the incredible Sigma 85F1.4 Art (which I did pre order btw) I also had in my possession Sigma’s New 500mmF4 AND their NEW 12-24F4.  Even though I had both of those lenses at the same event I am going to be…Read More


The NEW Sigma 85F1.4 Art…

Hello Brave new world!  It’s been a while, don’t think I haven’t noticed.  Also I’ve had a few emails about it also, so I know some of you have noticed as well and it makes me feel great.  First off let me apologize for the break in the blogging of the adventure.  It was not…Read More


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…

This last few days I’ve been given the opportunity to shoot the NCAA Division II swimming and diving championships for the NCAA and the Indiana Sports Corporation.  While I’ve shot swimming before, never at such a competitive level as the NCAA Championships.  For me it was mostly lighting folks swimming for advertising purposes (like as…Read More


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
