Food Etiquette

I have a question about a shoot I'm doing for a local lifestyle magazine. The magazine contacted me to shoot some food shots for an article. They picked the restaurant to provide to food and location and I get to shoot there. My question is does the restaurant get to use my photos for their own use and advertising or does the magazine hold on...

San Diego Padres

I've had the privilege of being a San Diego Padres season ticket holder for a few seasons. I finally decided to take my camera and get shots of some of the players when I'm able. I'm still learning and growing. All feedback is appreciated. Thank you.

Favorite Photo from June!!

This is probably one of my favorite shots from this past month. It took a little trial-and-error to figure out how to make this location work the way I wanted it to.

Reflections in Suru Valley

I welcome the group's comments and suggestions on this post. The picture was shot in Suru Valley, Ladakh, India. The whole day had been cloudy and dull, unusual for this time of the year at 10,000 feet up in the Suru Valley in the Himalayas. I decided to go for a quick bath in the chilly waters of a small offshoot of the Suru River. I was about...
