Six Photographs #1

Six Photographs Photography captures a moment in time, freezes it. It immediately becomes history, taken in the past.  From this photo, the first photo ever taken,  in 1826 in France by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce to today’s cell phone digital images, photography in all its forms and through all its many devices used to record it, is part of our history.  Be it the photographs we take of family and friends on trips and our everyday daily lives, to these historic photos that we all have come to know.  Photography has moved us to tears, has lifted our spirits, has...

Sunset Over Mt. Jefferson, Nevada

Sunset over Mt. Jefferson from the Mentor Valley, Nevada My wife and I were camping in a little free Forest Service Campground in the foothills below Mt Jefferson in central Nevada for four days. The weather had been clear almost every day except the last night so we drove into the valley and hoped for a nice sunset. what we got were jackrabbits galore. all over the road, but what we also got was a wonderful sunset over Mt Jefferson. Looking for great nature photos often involves lich and the right equipment. Here I was using a 10-22 canon zoom lens on my 60D, without...

Visalia’s Race Against Hunger

I was up at 4;45 on Thanksgiving day, not to put the turkey in the oven, but to have a little breakfast, a cup of coffee and get to Visalia (I Live in Fresno) by 6:30 to photograph the Race Against Hunger for the Visalia Emergency Aid Council.  I thought I would post a few photos of the event here on the blog. It was my first year for the event and I was amazed at how many people showed up to run, and to walk and to show their support for Visalia Emergency Aid. Over 5000 people took part. There is a great need in the community to feed the hungry and this event helped many...

New Celebration of Life Videos

After getting several requests to videotape a celebration of life, we decided to add that service, along with slideshows,  to our ever growing list of offerings In this article, we are going to talking about funeral, or celebration of life as they are more often refired to now, videotaping. We talk about the slideshow in another blog post. It’s an old saying, families gather for weddings and funerals, and we photograph the marriages, but not the funerals. But that is changing. Now, people are celebrating a life well lived instead of doing the somber funeral that was...

Selecting The Perfect Wedding Photograph...

You’re engaged, and you just set the wedding date. Now you need to make some decisions as to what type and how big of a wedding you’re going to have. Will you have a small backyard wedding or are you just going to the courthouse and get married. Do you want only close family or are you going to have a wedding with all your friends and extended family? Weddings run the gambit from the formal to the simple, from just a few people to hundreds. I have photographed weddings, or over 600 and as small as six people (including myself) and the type and size of wedding...
