I’ve got some amazing news and I just had to share it with you!!
I’m very excited and proud to announce that Sony has selected me to their Artisans of Imagery Program!!
This is a program that is very well respected within the photo industry and I am so very honored to be included.
I have wanted to switch to a system that is smaller, light and still allowing me to create images that match or exceed my previous (larger and heavier) cameras. AND, I wanted a camera that would allow me to more easily shoot video with a high degree of control over the video settings.
After trying many different brands of these newer and smaller cameras the past two years and upon the recommendation of a good friend, I tried the Sony cameras.
Finally! I found it!
It was quite a revelation because of their small size, superb technology and optics while still providing me professional results. After over 30 years in the photography business, you sometimes think you’ve “seen it all”.
Within hours of trying the camera for the first time I knew I was onto a system that would change the course of my professional career.
These are some recent photographs that I have made with the Sony (a6000) camera.
One of the first photographs I made with the Sony A6000 and the 70-200 f4 G OSS lens was this portrait of Ben climbing a tree near our home during a Friday afternoon playdate. I was impressed that the camera was able to find focus on Ben’s face quickly and easily with wonderful accuracy.
A portrait of Sparky again with the a6000 and the 70-200 f4 G OSS as he was keeping cool inside before the playdate. Again, the camera found focus quickly and accurately.
This portrait of Jorryn made with the same camera and lens as the two portraits above from that same playdate on the same day that the camera arrived.
Sports action from the Nike Football Festival at LA Live (from a personal project on the Tesoro H.S. football team) Sony a6000, 10-18 f4 G OSS lens, with a Yongnuo 580 EX II flash held off camera left fired with a wireless remote.
Tesor players celebrate their win in the four team Nike Football Festival at LA Live back in July. Sony a6000, 10-18 f4 G OSS lens with an off camera flash.
San Clemente Pier at Dawn. The eerie glow of the pre dawn sky at the pier was captured with the Sony a6000 camera and the 10-18 f4 G OSS lens. The small form factor of both make taking the camera out and about a real joy.
Portraits of Max. The first portrait was made with the Sony a6000 and the 70-200 f4 G OSS lens; the second with the same camera and the Zeiss 35mm f2.8 FE lens.
I’m excited about the future going forward working with Sony and the tools their engineers are creating. I want to continue to grow as a still photographer and push myself creatively in that area of my work and also expand into doing more video (primarily for local businesses that realize that video is a wonderful way for potential clients to get to know, like and trust a business).
This is a fascinating time in the history of photography as technologies evolve and as it appears that motion and stills are getting closer and closer. I’m not 100% sure where the road will lead but I’m excited to head down the path and see what I can create!
