Cody Lovaas – Backstage fun

It’s tough to believe that we are already two weeks into 2015. The year has started off with work on a new book and lots of planning. Sandwiched in the middle of all that was my first concert shoot of the year. This time it was Cody Lovaas at the Carlsbad...

Nikon D750 – Initial Thoughts

I really believe that cameras are tools and it’s important to get the right tool for the job. You wouldn’t try to break up a concrete slab with a rubber mallet, you would use a sledge-hammer. My current camera setup is the Nikon D4 as my main camera body...
