When the Sith Call…

It’s not every day you get an email saying you’ll be in the presence of the darkest of the dark lords in all the universe.  That happened to me a few weeks ago, and since then I’ve been waiting for all subsequent emails in regards to the topic to be crawling backwards slowly due to…Read More


The New Nikon D4s…

For a photographer, getting a new camera can be a tough yet exciting thing.  Really it only happens once every so often, kind of like buying a Car.  (At the Nikon D4s Price tag of $6500, it’s eerily like buying a car actually…).  I don’t remember who said it to me first, but it has…Read More

Blessed Thanks…

Every year it’s become tradition for me to write a blog post giving thanks for all of the things I think that are wonderful in my life. Sometimes there are lots, sometimes there are just a few.

Managing Technology…

I think that we can all agree that today’s world is much more complicated than past lifetimes.  Today’s world has technology which in essence is supposed to make life easier, better, safer and longer; but it doesn’t necessarily delivery all of its promises without help.  Personally I’m pretty sure my iPhone is smarter than I…Read More
