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 some things definitely took some getting used to, it wasn’t long before the D700 became my rock solid companion for […]
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 of that, my first generation Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR was proven to have some issues with the new FX format […]
The hearts of many male (and probably a few female) Subaru owners broke over night on December 4, 2010 when the (in)famous Stephanie French said “I do” to the love of her life, Travis Wiegand. I had the honor of capturing these moments and more at their wedding in Bellingham, Washington. It also marked the debut of my new Nikon D700 and Nikkor 24-70mm ƒ2.8 lens.

Erica’s been great to work with and hang out with since our first initial shoot, and now we’ve got another small one under our belts. We didn’t have much time to prepare, so this entire shoot took less than about 30 minutes total. Despite the short time frame, I think they all came out pretty good, and Erica’s happy with them. Each of these was shot with my D300 and either my 85mm ƒ1.8 or my my 50mm ƒ1.4.
For my third year in a row, I spent a Saturday out of the year among my Subaru brethren at the West Coast Subaru Show. This year, the show took place in Cashmere, Washington, just 10-15 minutes from both Leavanworth and Wenatchee. Again I participated as one of the judges and also gave away a free photoshoot as part of the raffle. The show went pretty great despite a few hiccups, and camping that night was absolutely crazy! I had […]
