Colorado Enduro World Series Photos

Colorado Enduro World Series Photos

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph the Enduro World Series (EWS) in Winter Park, Colorado. If you aren’t a mountain biker or you’ve been living in a cave, enduro is the latest mountain bike craze: competitors race multiple timed stages, with a downhill emphasis, usually over two or three days. Sometimes […]

Nikon D810 DSLR Offers Better Image Quality Than D800E

Nikon D810 DSLR Offers Better Image Quality Than D800E

There’s a new big (resolution) dog in the Nikon family – the Nikon D810 DSLR. The D800 is one of Nikon’s most lauded and successful digital SLRs. The 36-megapixel FX-format camera (full-frame) attracted all types of serious photographers from working commercial shooters, to landscape professionals, to serious amateurs. For photographers who want the best possible […]

Sony Alpha A77 II Action DSLR Sets New Performance Standard

Sony Alpha A77 II Action DSLR Sets New Performance Standard

Sony recently announced a new high-performance crop-sensor DSLR-style camera that has me seriously thinking about trading in one of my Canon bodies. The Sony Alpha A77 II action DSLR is the follow-up to the SLT-A77 introduced in 2011 and offers a level of performance we haven’t seen yet in an APS-C sensor DSLR – especially […]

Big Sur Road Trip Adventure

Big Sur Road Trip Adventure

This Big Sur photo gallery was prompted by the now ubiquitous “throwback Thursday” social media post. This morning, I decided to share a photo from a road trip Jenni and I did this time last year, where we drove down the coast of California, from the Bay Area to LA. The highlight of that drive […]

Sundance Super-D Mountain Bike Race Photos

Sundance Super-D Mountain Bike Race Photos

If you thought I didn’t own or know how to use PocketWizards, you’d be wrong. I don’t use them much but everyone once in a while I bust them out. The Sundance Super-D mountain bike race photos I took last weekend were perfect for some off-camera lighting. It was juicy and green in the trees […]

Video: Liquid Pixels

Video: Liquid Pixels

In the video below, Artist Belo Serge uses biodegradable paper cups filled with dyed rainwater to create an image intended to raise awareness about the growing clean water crisis on our planet. Liquid pixels – that’s what we’re seeing in this video. If you think about it, they’re very much like the electronic pixels on […]

New Canon Wide-Angle Zoom Lenses: 16-35mm f/4L IS & 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

A couple of new Canon wide-angle zoom lenses were announced this week: a new 16-35mm f/4L for full-frame DSLR users; and an EF-S 10-18mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM zoom for APS-C sensor DSLRs. The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM zoom is a pretty straightforward lens. Compared to the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II, the new 16-35mm […]

Fezzari Bikes Spring Sale Event Photos

Fezzari Bikes Spring Sale Event Photos

Utah bike manufacturer Fezzari threw down a big spring parking lot party and sale last Friday, at their Lindon headquarters. There were deals on bikes and gear, aerial BMX shenanigans, a raffle, and a couple of food trucks. When I found out there was going to be a corn dog truck, there was no way […]

Spring 2014 Mountain Bike Video Reel

Spring 2014 Mountain Bike Video Reel

My fans and followers know me primarily as a photographer, writer and bacon lover. But I’ve also been dabbling in video for the past few years. It’s mostly been in the form of camera intros and reviews, as well as to test the video features and performance of cameras I’ve reviewed. But I’ve also shot […]

2014 Brighton Closing Day Photos

2014 Brighton Closing Day Photos

I’ve attended a few ski resort closing days in the past and they’re always tons of fun. Skiing slush in a T-shirt is cool (as long as you’ve got the right wax on your skis), the silly costumes and vintage ski gear are entertaining, but mostly it’s the party atmosphere and camaraderie with fellow snow […]
