Sleeping in Downtown Dallas

An Interview Playlist

I started making a number of playlists on YouTube, and one of them has a bunch of interviews in it. I get a few dozen requests per month for interviews, and I kind of randomly say yes here and there. But, if you’d like to get an interview just to have questions answered, you can probably find most anything in those playlists!

One thing I do ask of interviews, however, is that people ask totally original questions… this is what I prefer – for your benefit and for mine! :)

Interview with EVI Exclusive

I did an interview with EVI Exclusive and Zoha Zee. You can see it below.

What do you think is happening in this photo? It’s full of secrets, like Laura Palmer…

We had a tiny, unannounced PhotoWalk in Dallas last week. Hello to those of you that came!

Video Interview on SplashMedia

Video Interview on Splashmedia

Have you all heard of Renay San Miguel? He was an anchor on CNN, CBS, and CNBC… You’ll probably recognize him in the interview!

Thanks to Chris Kraft and the team over at Splash Media for the interview! I hope you enjoy it…

New Prints – The Adventure Tree and The Falls of Yellowstone

We release one new print a week, and I’ve been a bit remiss in mentioning them with all the travel. My bad. I can remedy that right now…

You can click on each print to go over and get details. As always, each one is part of a numbered limited edition series. Enjoy!

The Parachute Jump

Keeping up…. Live from Paris

Sometimes, if I have a few extra seconds, I’ll take little cellphone pics and upload them to Twitter. If you are not on Twitter, and want to see them, just click the little “Tweets” button/tab thing over on the right. It can give you the latest scoop in case you want to see what is live. For example, I am now in Paris, and I put up a few things over the day. None of these are great shots btw… just little slices of life I am capturing. I’ll repost them here below.

New Video – The Parachute Jump

Here is the video that I edited together of the big jump I made with the Golden Knights!  Enjoy!

The Golden Knights are Bad Ass

Having a Great Time at OpenCamp!

I gave a little talk yesterday called, “Clever Tricks for Making Your Blog More Beautiful and Popular”. We had a good time, and I hope the crowd enjoyed it! If you want to know more about OpenCamp and the other speakers, including Chris Pirillo, Cali Lewis, and more, see this Open Camp Day One writeup by Phillip Coxwell.

Daily Photo – The Golden Knights are Bad Ass

I have not had much time this weekend to process new photos, but I did take a moment to process this one.

This was taken during an evening demonstration on the night before OpenCamp began. It was an unforgettable night with the Knights! After falling a few miles from the sky, the skydivers would open up their chutes & pyrotechnics and let loose. Since I had jumped with them the day before, they let me get up close on the landing to get some tight shots.

I also may go out to Fort Bragg, where they are based, and do a bunch more shots in the future. I look forward to that very much!

Visit the Golden Knights on their website, and follow them on Twitter at @ArmyGK.

Here are just a few examples of what is inside the 50 page eBook!

  • A detailed how-to about how to Compose Photos
  • Countless examples of the how/when/why of setting up a shot on the scene
  • Postprocessing:  the how/when/why to crop your image for more meaning and power
  • Deep discussions on how viewers react to different compositions
  • There is an equal emphasis on composing landscapes and composing people

On the way to the Jump!

This is what I look like right before I leave this mortal coil.

Giovanni (@Giovanni) grabbed this shot of me on the way to my parachute jump with the Golden Knights… more to come soon… but I know many people were asking, so here is a quick one for you.
