Camera Nerd Blog ‘O The Week: What’s In My Bag, Concert Edition

May 7, 2013 | No comments yet

I recently had a couple of photo gigs–photographing vintage dolls and doing some promo shots for the very talented Karen and Shawn Galvin of New Music Raleigh–that involved so much gear I elected not to do a “What’s in My Camera Bag?” because the logistics were too tiresome. There was a ThinkTank Airport International bag […]

***NOTE: I wrote this blog post back in August of last year, and have rediscovered it while doing some website housecleaning. Therefore, some of the future happenings are now past happenings–each of the weddings I photographed was a wonderful celebration. It is appropriate to have found it now, when photography IS my focus and when […]

Don’t Fear Your Vision

April 9, 2013 | No comments yet

For every creative high, there is an inevitable low. After four straight days of shooting the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, and with some fun upcoming shoots simmering on the stove, I’m taking a breather in one of those creative valleys. I am happy with the work I’m creating, but I’m also feeling tapped out […]

la poire et une assiette, le hibou et le lapin

April 3, 2013 | No comments yet

With Easter, and work, and the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival getting ready to kick off tomorrow, I haven’t been devoting much of my brain to the blog this week. So instead I’ll leave you with some simple images, from which you can draw your own conclusions. I used a French title to make them […]

The Midrange Zoom — The Lens You Love to Hate

March 29, 2013 | No comments yet

Some lenses just don’t get a lot of love. Call them the Rodney Dangerfields of the photographic world–no matter how hard they try, they just can’t get any respect. They can be sharp, they can be useful, they can be fast, but they continue unloved, like the guy that all the girls really like (as […]

Saving the Best for Last – West Coast Wrapup

March 15, 2013 | 3 comments

My trip to the West Coast was pretty epic, it really was. Here I am, still writing about it and posting photos in March, and I’ve been home since mid-January. I drove over two thousand miles through three states. I visited some of the most interesting and beautiful cities on the West Coast. I drove […]

Leftovers: Clearing Out Your Fridge with Great Food

March 5, 2013 | No comments yet

Yeah, you read that right. No, you didn’t accidentally click over to I really am writing about food. I don’t think it’s the first time, and it probably won’t be the last. I can’t help myself–I was struck with this inspiration while sitting down to eat, and well, you know I have a couple […]

Speak Up, Because I Can’t Hear You!

February 27, 2013 | No comments yet

Yesterday, I had a meeting with Jess Leff, the person behind my first class at West Point on the Eno. We discussed future classes and projects, and she mentioned the enthusiasm and positive feedback from the portrait photography class I taught in January. In the recap of that class, I solicited folks for feedback on […]

The Ebb and Flow

| No comments yet

This blog has no real beginning–no inspiration, no epiphany, no “light bulb” moment. I’ve been going through older photos again, feeling what they evoke, allowing myself to be transported back to those specific moments. Creativity ebbs and flows, and even when it ebbs, sometimes you feel compelled to create. Sometimes you still have to make […]

The Importance of Being Careful

February 21, 2013 | No comments yet

Not a long post today, just a short note about being careful when you’re taking photos, especially when you are in a controlled environment and you have the time and ability to move things around. The shot above is from a recent shoot I did at Box-2B-Fit, a fitness-through-boxing gym in Raleigh, North Carolina. I […]
