Much in the same vein as last year, 2019 was definitely a year of quality over quantity. Work took me to new places again this year and I spent a wonderful 40th birthday in Hawaii. I also got myself a little birthday gift in the form of a new Nikon Z7, which has become my primary camera for the last […]

I took my new Nikon Z7 on a short trip to Hawaii! Here is a real-world review of the mirrorless camera body, as I put it to the test with my F-mount lenses.

A look back at the year in photos that was 2018. Photos from Seattle, Berlin, Dallas, and Shanghai, along with a McLaren 570S and the Vegas Golden Knights!

Life caught up to me quite a bit in 2017. I took the least number of photos this year than any other year since I started shooting professionally, with the vast majority of the photos revolving around friends and family. There were even entire months where I didn’t even shoot anything. That’s not a bad thing though, since some of […]

A couple weeks ago, I went to visit my best friend Sidnee down in Las Vegas. She had a great idea to go check out The Valley of Fire, just about an hour north of the city. We had a pretty packed day so we didn’t end up staying very long, but it was long enough to get some fantastic […]

2016 went by like a blur for me. It didn’t take anywhere near as many photos as I have in previous years, mainly due to life changes such as taking a role at eBay as the Global Digital Marketing Manager for the eBay Partner Network. Life is busy, but busy is good, and through it all I still found time […]

It was a race to take photos before the rain and crowds, but this year’s cherry blossom photos at The Quad at the University of Washington turned out great. We arrived about half an hour before sunrise and early hour resulted in a much smaller number of other photographers compared to previous years. This made taking photos much easier and […]

A look back at the year 2015 in photos, through the lens of Armin H. Ausejo. Includes automotive, landscape, and Formula DRIFT photography.

It’s become a yearly tradition for me to go to the University of Washington’s Quad and take photos of the cherry blossoms just as Spring starts. Unfortunately, the weather hasn’t been the greatest lately, so my original plans to go as soon as they hit full bloom fell through. A week later, I finally made it out to UW at […]

What a year, 2014 was! I may not have taken as many photos as I had in previous years, but I’d say the quality is up there amongst the best in recent memory. Rather than taking photos of anything and everything, I ended up being a bit more selective for the most part this year, and really took my time. […]

Four years ago, I made the switch to full frame, upgrading from my trusty Nikon D300 to the Nikon D700. By the time I made the switch, the D700 was already available for  2 1/2 years, so its reputation and capabilities were already well-established. Full frame was like night and day after coming from a cropped sensor camera, and while […]

2013 was a very successful and productive year for my photography. Check out all of the different things that I’ve photographed this year!

I had traveled to Southern California on family business back at the end of March, and thus while I did some sightseeing and processed a number of photos, I almost forgot to post them up here on my blog. I hadn’t gone sightseeing around San Diego in years, so I made sure to bring all my necessary equipment with me […]

In terms of my photography, I’d have to say that 2012 was a pivotal, life-changing year for me. I learned a lot of new techniques, sharpened many skills, and met a whole lot of great people. I thank each and every one of your for all of your support in this past year, and I’m very much looking forward to […]

Lately, I’ve been going back and re-editing some old photos, just to see how I’d do things differently given all the time and experience that’s transpired since the original edit. Here are a few examples that I’d like to share: [beforeafter][/beforeafter] [beforeafter] [/beforeafter] [beforeafter] [/beforeafter]

I had some relatives from North Carolina come for a visit last week, so I took them around the city at night to do a little sightseeing. I brought my camera with me of course and snapped a few photos at the places we went. The panorama above is a 3-photo stitch from Alki in West Seattle, and the three […]

2011 proved to be a banner year in terms of the sheer number of photos I’ve taken and how I feel I’ve grown as a photographer. I shot a variety of different subjects, helped mentor and advise a great group of photographers, and helped NWMotiv establish itself as a major media player in the local automotive scene. Rather than bore […]

It’s been three and a half years since I went out to take photos of Seattle at night, and since my friend Pauline really wanted to take photos and learn more about using her DSLR, we decided to take advantage of the dry and warm Seattle weather. We started at Kerry Park and ended up on the Jose Rizal Bridge […]

After two straight days of disappointment from staying up very late during the weeknights to capture the Northern lights, I had high hopes for this week’s Perseid Meteor Shower.  As all of my friends know, I’m a big astronomy buff and the only thing that kept me from pursuing a career in astronomy was my hatred for higher level mathematics.  […]
