Summer goes by fast. For me it means finding homes for the images created during the past winter as well as drafting up current projects and of course lots of fun, loads of work and a few weddings in between. Here is a visual journal from a few summer moments:
Carson Klein carving up the air at Alyeska on a 10m wing!
I have a thing for moody scenics! This from a boat out of Seward. Again, color as shot in camera with a 5d3 and a split ND filter.
This will make a fun print, don't you think? I have been attracted to the fractal geometry of nature since I started, once I was introduced to Eliot Porter by photographer John Fielder when we were in the same Colorado Gallery, since Porters work stands as affirmation Im not the only one who sees this... everywhere. Prince william sound water off a boats wake shot at close range, 200mm 5d3 1/6400th or so of a second. This shot and several others like it remain some of my personal favorite believe it or not.
alaska in the summer,
This shot was hard to get. Barely sharp enough to display, but the moment
If your into birds you will like this picture a whole lot more. Me I just know that other people know what bird this is.. its rare and here it is. :) I know i know...it is a touch soft.. see... Im not a wildlife photog very often. i had to squeeze the light so hard to get this it was kinda silly. like 3200 iso, 1/640 5.6 @400 from a moving boat if my memory is right.
Triston B getting after it on a speed wing at alyeska resort. Very challenging sport to shoot, so fast, hard to predict, preparation of expected shot almost impossible. But fun as it gets to watch and shoot. Carson Klein
Triston about to get rowdy.
Rust, I once saw a show by a photographer who specialized in rusting trains, this is the side of a boat, I loved the color and the fractal patterns.
Shooting with a 50 1.2 is kinda like driving a formula one car, super tight, sharp with razor sharp while everything else can be just a blur!
This one is for my step mom who loves boats, especially ones put to pasture.
Click, snap crack my dad as shot from the hip, Homer Alaska.
My father, the professor as seen through my 50 1.2 my favorite lens at the moment.
Professional portrait and wedding photography has been kind to me, So has Chugach Peaks Photography that sends me out to weddings and portrait shoots all over the state of Alaska.
Hope Alaska as shot 5D2
5D3 also has fantastic qualities when shot in B&W. 50mm 1.2
Weddings are usually fun after all people are happy, in good spirits and having fun. Do note the use of the word usually! Not everyone has their day how they wanted it.
Its shots like this last one, where the moment, the photographer and the camera act truly as one and give me a zing. Moments like that leave me yearning to shoot and dive further into my trade, art, gear and profession. If you love what you do, and do what you love life is grand. And so is shooting with my new Canon set up, as far as gear goes i'm in love!
So your aware, I didn't share some 50k photos. It is truly my pleasure to show everyone a little of what I've been up too. Some of you know me, some of you don't or are perhaps looking at my website because your looking for a photographer. Feel free to ask questions, leave comments. But above all be sure to look about and within and experience the Art Filled World all around.
