Last year, I shot Haila’s Toyota Starlet for NWMotiv, but this time around Haila wanted to get some photos of her own. Thanks to some really assistance from our good friend Nosilla, I believe these photos turned out great. Each of these was taken with my Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ2.8 VR2.  I definitely plan to use some of these to replace […]

I had the honor of photographing Stephanie and Travis’ wedding last December, and now I had the honor of photographing their maternity photos. We had a bit of a scare because the weather was looking rather gloomy, but we caught a break with only a little bit of light drizzle and none of the continuous rain that was predicted. This […]

Hagen is Garret’s brother, so I was more than happy to take their engagement photos, along with his upcoming wedding as well. Hagen and Natalie were going with a nautical theme for their wedding and wanted some shots with the Seattle skyline behind them, so Alki was the obvious choice for some good locations. We lost light pretty fast, but […]

XDC (Xtreme Drift Circuit) is the latest national drift series to make a stop in the Northwest, and I was happy to cover it for NWMotiv.com. Speeds were much slower than Formula D thanks to the smaller kart track, so trying to get good slower-shutter pans was much more challenging. The photos still came out great though, and I’m glad […]

Formula D Seattle is undoubtedly my most favorite event to photograph every year. In previous years, I shot the event for Subiesport Magazine and Driving Sports, however this was the first year I shot the event for NWMotiv.com. Due to scheduling issues with another event I was going to on Saturday, I was only able to shoot Friday’s practice and […]

After a couple rain/weather delays, Kaylee and I were finally able to go do some fashion photography on a beautiful summer’s day at Renton’s Coulon Park.  With plenty of assistance from Erica May, Kaylee and I were able to take photos of her in three different outfits, timing it perfectly to end our shoot at sunset.  I took this opportunity […]

Since I started using my Nikon D700 last November, I hadn’t really changed my line-up of lenses.  My Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D and Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D felt right at home with the new full frame sensor, and the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G satisfied my everyday walk around lens requirement, but none of these lenses really offered anything new to me.  On top […]

My MB-D10 vertical grip came in today.  The camera already feels much more complete than without it.  Nikon definitely did well on the ergonomics of this new grip.  I’ll of course have a more detailed review later on, but until then, here’s a quick photo from my phone:

Just a quick teaser pic for now, taken with my Samsung T929:
