I am very excited and pleased to announce that I have launched a brand spanking new website in which you are reading this very blog post on right now.
I have been a bit behind the times when it came to my previous site as it was adobe flash based. As you might have already noticed, but my old site didn't allow people on mobile devices like iPhones/Android phones or tablets to view or take advantage of the galleries or information.
This new design is beautiful, simplistic, intuitive, and above all else, mobile friendly!
My contact information will also be changing with a new email address and San Diego phone number and that information can be found on the contact page above.
So, let me know what you think!
Send me an email at email@example.com, send me a tweet, or post on my facebook.
It is with great pleasure that I announce that I am relocating!
To my closest friends and family I know this isn't anything new, but to my everyday acquaintances, past clients. potential clients and old friends I know this post is for you! I'll be moving to San Diego in early September 2013 where I hope to continue my personal, and photography careers in a new city, a new state, a new coast, and a new setting.
I decided upon San Diego after visiting the area a few times on vacation and finding it to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever experienced. Though it's true that I am a southern small town guy that loves mountains, off-roading, fishing, and almost every other thing there is to love about small town, southern America, I have decided to make a change and take a chance. I know I'll be a bit out of my element, but I know this is where I want to be.
I'll be moving about 8 miles West of downtown San Diego in the beautiful and semi-small neighborhood of Ocean Beach. OB is honestly one of the coolest communities I've ever been to as it has an artsy, eccentric feel with a population of people that loves dogs and hate chain stores (Seriously, A Subway, a Rite-Aid and a Starbucks are the only chain businesses in the Ocean Beach area, and the rest are all mom and pop shop restaurants, hardware stores, grocery stores, pet stores, etc.) I know I'll feel right at home in this environment and know I'll have the opportunity to make plenty of friends along the way.
I cannot thank everyone enough who has made my time here in Virginia as memorable as it has been. I'm way more attached to this area than I care to admit and I've learned so much in my 5 year time here that I can say with confidence that Virginia is where I truly grew up, in the most philosophical sense of the phrase.
I cannot wait to see what lies ahead of me in San Diego, both in photography and my personal career paths. And here's to hoping that one day those two things might just become one.
I sincerely apologize for the lack of posting the last few weeks, if you can tell from the photos below.. I've kinda got my hands full with a new member of the family. This is Spencer. He's an English Bulldog, the second bulldog to be a member of our family. We traveled all the way up to Marietta, Ohio to pick up this little guy about 3 weeks ago, and if you are connected to me through ANY social networking site, you know that I tend to take a lot of photos of him.
The 5D Mark II arrived on Wednesday.Ohmygawsh holy full frame 21 megapixel camera Batman. I think this camera will take my work to a whole 'nother level.
Some of the stand out features for me, personally, are: 21 Megapixel (Had to throw away the 1GB memory cards, and buy two 8GB CF cards, this thing's file sizes eat 1GB for breakfast.) Expandable ISO to 50. (I haz no noises whatsoever!) FULL FRAME! (Is this what 50mm looks like?) Weather sealed.
I finally got a chance to take this thing out on Saturday and see what this thing can do.
Below are the results:
Special note to Elizabeth, next time I see you, I'm fully expecting to have you on here as well. :)
