Last night I watched Scotty Cranmer’s latest injury update on his YouTube Channel and it made me want to do something to show him that I’ve been thinking about him and that I care about him as a friend. I ended up staying up all night digging through 10 years of hard drives to pull together these 143 BMX photos.
These shots are from various trips, competitions, and photo shoots starting in 2006 and ending with the last shoot I did with him in 2015.
The Red Bull Illume is the world’s premiere action sports and adventure photography competition. This month marked the closing of the fourth year of submissions, and of course I entered a handful of photos.
I was fortunate enough to have one of my photos in the top 250 entries for the first two Illume competitions, but unfortunately on the third go round I was left out of the upper echelon. Hopefully I’ll get back into the top percentile in 2016!
For the second year in a row I was assigned by the NPGL to shoot the DC Brawlers during the League’s year-end championship match, and for the second year in a row DC won. Coincidence? I don’t think so…
Back in September I had the opportunity to shoot the San Francisco Fire in their NPGL playoff match against the Phoenix Rise. I haven’t been able to go through the photos until just recently, so chalk this gallery up to the “better late than never” category and enjoy!
The Grand Canyon is impossible to do justice in photographs, but shooting panoramic sometimes help to show just how expansive it really is.
Here are five panoramic photos of the Grand Canyon from my recent hiking trip—three from stitching together several frames taken with my Canon 5D MKIII and two taken with my iPhone 5. Can you guess which photo is from which camera?
I’ve seen photos of Antelope Canyon for years and have always been intrigued by the mysterious place, so I couldn’t wait to go there for myself to see what the canyon was really like with my own eyes (and lens).
Although the canyon was beautiful and extremely photogenic, it was also what I would consider to be overly touristed for its size. I didn’t find much helpful information online about how to visit Antelope Canyon before I went, so I didn’t know that the “photographic tour” is only offered at one specific time throughout the day. Needless to say, I missed that tour that would have allowed me to bring in a tripod and given me extra time in the canyon.
The tour I went on lasted about an hour, and in my group alone there were about 15 people—that’s not counting the eight or so other tours equal in size that were walking through the canyon at the same time. To say the narrow canyon was crowded would be an understatement.
Although I’m extremely happy I got to visit the canyon, I would have loved to see the guides charge higher prices and limit the number of people they bring in at a time.
Being so rushed I only got these seven photos that are worth sharing, but hopefully they can scratch the surface of showing how beautiful Antelope Canyon is!
As mentioned in my last gallery, my dad and I recently went on a trip to the Grand Canyon so of course I came back with a ton of photos.
We camped at Mathers Campground on the South Rim and hiked a few different trails down into the canyon. We had two super clear days with blue skies, and then one rainy day with really dramatic skies that made for some incredible shots.
I’ll have a few more posts and galleries coming your way, but here is the first set of 20 photos from the Grand Canyon!
Contact me if you would like to license or purchase any of these images. Please do not use without my permission.
It goes without saying that the Grand Canyon is absolutely breathtaking, mind-boggling, and awe-inspiring, so to be able to experience its vastness up close and personal was a real treat! These photos will always remind me of what an incredible place the Grand Canyon is!
This post wouldn’t be complete without a picture of me with my dad!
Yep, lots of Grid photos on the blog lately! And there will be a few more galleries after this from the playoff and championship week as well. This gallery is from the Los Angeles match where they played San Francisco on the Fire’s home turf in Nor Cal.
The DC Brawlers took the NPGL championship in 2014, and it looks like they may take it again in 2015, so it’s always an honor to shoot their matches! Here are 35 of my best shots from their race against the New York Rhinos from the Fit Expo in Anaheim, California a few weeks ago.
