Toyota's Sick and Twisted Rail Jam @ Sierra Summit

I had an awesome time up at SIERRA SUMMIT this last Saturday shooting their Toyota sponsored Sick and Twisted Rail Jam Competition. Saturday turned out to be an amazing day with some great powder runs and soft packed powder groomed runs on the slopes. I stayed in Lakeshore that night and tried to do a little snowmobiling Sunday but the massive storm that hit that morning kinda told us otherwise so we had to make a trip home a little early. I had such an awesome time I’m actually at the start of getting sick… UGHHH THIS SUCKS! Anyway, enjoy some of my favorite pictures for now and I’ll be back before you know it for my next post if I survive this sickness!

New Logo

So I haven't posted anything in awhile and thought it would be a good time to update my blog. I haven't had any new shoots recently due to the crazy weather ( this weather!!) so I went through some old pictures of last year when my sister and I went to the Final Four in Atlanta, Georgia. It was a once in a lifetime experience for sure and we had an amazing time! I picked a few pictures I thought you might like and thought I would share. I also created a new logo that is MUCH easier to read and I think is overall an improvement so let me know what you think. I can never make up my mind anyways on what I want. I can't wait to step behind the lens this wedding season, it's going to be epic so stay tuned! ...until next time, take care.

Drink Coca-Cola!

Atlanta had some AMAZING subways.

...yeah the basketball games were fun too.

Gold teeth in three hours!! I totally should have got some.

Ok, so here is my first ever modeling shoot. I had asked Bri to have a shoot with me for a little experimental lighting and shooting style and she agreed. She ended up being the perfect model for what I was looking for and the images turned out great!

We took them at an old abandoned house out in the country that was kinda creepy inside. I have to admit when I was scouting locations I was a little freaked out to walk in there by myself because with all the windows and doors boarded up, it was pitch black! Ghosts and I don’t get along very well, but they let us go unharmed :)

Ryan and Jess

Alright, so Jasen’s father in law Mike had access to the abandoned Hotel Fresno built in 1913 and got us a few hours access to do a shoot. He was also used as our main lighting guy, (we actually made him work quite a bit for him doing US a favor, haha) THANKS MIKE FOR EVERYTHING!!!

Ryan and Jess were awesome for putting up with Jasen and I and turned out to be the perfect couple for the shoot …not to mention they got some awesome pictures out of it!

Go check out Jasen’s blog for his amazing pictures.

We kinda just traded off back and forth shooting, collaborating on new ideas on both composition and lighting. I can’t wait to apply some of this style into the upcoming weddings of the year with New Generations Photography. It’s going to be EPIC for sure!

Hope you all enjoy the pictures as much as I did taking them!

New Things are a Brewin'

In-between getting Michele’s room ready to paint (…purple if you were wondering), Guitar Hero III, and returning e-mails, I found a little time to do some experimenting with textures in Photoshop inspired by fine art photographer Jesh de Rox.

I have been so pumped up these last few weeks to get things rolling in the new year so Jasen and I are teaming up this weekend before wedding season for a creative couple’s session to try out some new ideas and it’s going to be an amazing shoot with a hot couple at a “TOP SECRET” location. Be ready for updates coming soon with the images that we create because you don’t want to miss it!
