GNARBOX 128GB Portable Backup & Editing System

So what is this thing you call the GNARBOX? Funny you should ask. Directly from the manufacture’s website: “A pocket-sized device that empowers you to backup, organize, edit & share HD videos and photos, laptop free.” Hmmm. I have to say that up until a month ago, I had never heard of the GNARBOX. The

Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera

Say hello to the Fujifilm X-T2 Mirrorless digital camera. Another offering for photographers that aggressively thumbs its nose at comparable massive pro DSLR bodies from Canon and Nikon. History In 1993 I purchased my first camera, a Nikon 8008. Shortly thereafter, I bought my first brick of FujiChrome Velvia. Velvia had this amazing

Snow Photography

The snow has begun to fall here in the west, blanketing mountain scenics in a carpet of white. When we head out on a snow photography mission, we need to pay closer attention to the light meters in our cameras. All manufacturers have different terms and technologies for their in-camera meters. All of

iPhone X – Is It Really the Future

“Say hello to the future.” Say hello to iPhone X. Apple Inc. iPhone X & The Future Last week my brand new iPhone X arrived. Apple’s marketing slogan for the phone is, “Say hello to the future”. I think back to my original iPhone. I adopted it the day it was released. It

DJI Mavic Pro – Fly More Combo

“Say hello to my little friend!” Sorry for the Scarface reference, but the DJI Mavic Pro is my newest, bestest, little friend. The drone market is on the rise. Predictions are forecasting that there will be over 29 million drones in the consumer marketplace by 2021. Who happens to own 70% of that consumer

Lightroom CC Feature Rundown

LSD tab wearing off from last week’s post about Adobe’s switch of Lightroom to Lightroom Classic CC? Time for another hit of the Adobe re-marketing LSD train. This week we are talking about Lightroom CC. If you liked the Lightroom Classic CC LSD update tab you may or may not have a good

Lightroom Classic CC is Here!

Let’s begin with what the hell is Lightroom Classic CC? Well, apparently the people working at Adobe have been taking some LSD and not sharing it with the rest of us. If you didn’t get the memo from last week there are now two Lightroom software platforms available. What we all used to

Staying Creative

I want to let you in on a not-so-secret, secret. My number one rule for staying creative, is well, as simple as – keep creating. Everything that you create leads to something else that is creative. Sitting stagnant in a room with nothing to do is the best way to NOT stay creative.

Assess the Risk of Photographing in the Wild

Have you ever heard the term, “Safety is no accident?” It was something that I used to say when I was in charge of building million dollar houses. This week we are going to discuss how-to assess the risk of photographing in the wilderness with other people. I have one more saying, this

Fear & Photography

Fear is a topic rarely discussed within the boundaries of photography. Everyone has a fear of something. For many of us, regardless of what we choose to do in life, fear of death tends to be looming over most people at some point. While many feel that fear is a bad thing, I

Sony a9 v. Canon 1DX Mark II

The release of the new Sony a9 this spring finally sparked interest in the mirrorless camera market for me. I have tested other Sony cameras but had hangups with their operation and how I specifically work as a photographer. When Sony announced the a9, their press release specifically addressed the issues that I

Solar Eclipse 2017 – Creating the Photograph

My obsession with the solar eclipse 2017 began about two years ago. A client randomly asked me what my plans were when the solar eclipse was supposed to be overhead in Jackson, Wyoming. At that point I knew nothing about the upcoming event. Online research proved that August 21, 2017, was the official
