Check out the latest photos…


Playing around on the beach this weekend with the Sony A7Rii and an old Canon 28mm FD f/2.8 manual focus. It really takes some nice shots, very clear if you get the focus right…

Hope you like it.

Hi all,

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving… We were up in Sonoma for the weekend and I had a chance to get out and about with the new Sony A7Rii . I got a couple of shots in the Benziger Winery in Glen Ellen with an old Canon 24-70mm 2.8 L series and they came out quite well… I’ll post some more soon and thanks for taking a look!

Hi all,

I hope you are having a great Holiday Season. I was up in Sonoma and San Franciso recently and got a chance to try out the Canon 6D. So far I am really liking it. The shots mainly come out pretty good and I have been posting some on 500px and thought you might want to take a look. This one was a fly over by a wily Turkey Buzzard. I used the 24 to 105mm f/4 as he flew over and caught this shot.  Let me know what you think or if you have any questions on the Canon 6D I’d be happy to to help.

Before I go what do you think about this shot from Hawks  Hill of the Golden Gate Bridge. This was a really busy Sunday and hardly anywhere to stop. I would recommend anyone taking the time to go up the road to Hawks Hill and see if you can find a space and maybe hike down towards the bridge. Truly tremendous to be up there…
