I recently spent some time doing some photoshoots in Jacksonville, Florida. It was a great place and had lots of cool vistas and backgrounds. This week I'll be at a camp so I don't have much time to post photos but I hope to get around to it soon!
I always like a challenge and photographing fireworks can be challenging. The standard, common fireworks photo isn't so hard to achieve, but the more creative and interesting approach is much more difficult. For one, I only see fireworks once a year really so there's not a lot of practice to be had. And the ones I see aren't even the biggest shows around. In any case, it's always fun to try to guess where the firework will explode since it's always dark and there's not way to really predict where the next firework will explode. That's the fun part, all of the calculating, focusing, settings and adjustments have to be done instantaneously. And you only get 10 minutes or so, time to get on your game!
I've been helping out at camps for the past ten years or so and always have a great time capturing candid moments and the spirit of youth camps. I figured it was time to create a portfolio. I'll be adding more photos from previous years soon! Check out my new portfolio here. I've photographed paint wars, water wars, smoke wars, and games where flour, oatmeal, and jello was thrown around. With my special protective camera case -that also allows me to do underwater photos- I'm able to be right in the middle of all the action. I love those shots! I also have a drone for aerial videography and photos, as well as a collection of GoPro cameras for amazing group selfies, photos and video on rollercoasters, and unique angles where GoPros can be mounted. I love making short video recaps with all these cool angles. Contact me if you have a camp where you'd like some super fun and
