Virginia Beach 5:57AM


Today was an early call to check the oceanfront at first light and experiment with a new digital body, lens and pseudo ring-light.

Golden Waterbottles


A decaf tall latte at Starbucks in the afternoon is sometimes nice for a break and it's close our FedEx drop box. These water bottles were near a window ledge with afternoon light steaming in. Couldn't resist a backlit trio.

Lake Rawlings Under/Over


We were working in Lake Rawlings in Rawlings, VA doing a series of scenic, underwater and under/over images (Christina, Bob, Malena, Errol, Tyler, me and a 17-hour day). The water was chilly (55-65 degrees F), but it was a sunny, blue-sky 80F day. Hot chocolate and Oreos kept us going between water sessions.

Plaza Azteca


Ever see lines, colors, patterns and textures that you can't take your eyes off? This is an exterior wall of a restaurant on Laskin Road in Virginia Beach.

Lynnhaven Inlet


We were working on a signature image for "late afternoon/dusk" at the Lynnhaven Inlet/Duck Inn waterfront in Virginia Beach, VA. The weather isn't always perfect and it takes multiple trips for everything to work. If the weather looks promising, we load a green/yellow fat-wheel Rolleze beach cart with a fat tripod, camera, laptop, rake, boots and start about an hour before sunset. Sometimes I feel like a lunatic trying to shape the wave with body english. But, hey, sometimes it works.
