So as you may know I owned the Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens for almost a year. I bought it because it seemed to have all the right specifications.

My next-door neighbor is having a baby. It seems like just the other day she was playing in the street. Now, she’s married and having her first child. Geez, I’m getting old. Read More
When I took these pictures back in November of 2016 they were delivered to the client in full color. Most of the time you have a good idea of what your client is looking for so you develop a workflow around delivering that expectation. However once the work is delivered and the client is satisfied you know have the freedom to be creative. Read More
I have been experimenting with off camera flash for a while and I figure I got the hang of it. I got a few light stands, a few back drops and some support systems, all the makings of an amateur studio. Well everything except a permanent studio space. I usually go where the action is for want of a better word. However, Read More

So photography has been a hobby of mine for over 10 years. Over that time i had amassed at least 700 gigabytes of JPEGs, CR2raw files, MPEG files and MOV files not to mention the associated Lightroom catalog and backups of the catalog. Depending on who you are that may seem like a lot or it could seem like a drop in the bucket. The real issue is that it was that it was irreplaceable. Read More
I must thank my friend Osei Jackson for the opportunity to photograph this performance. Read More

Carnival Monday in Trinidad
As of the time of this post Carnival 2015 has now come and gone. All we are left with now is the memories, sore feet and in some cases a raging hangover to remind us of what was billed as the greatest show on earth. Well actually we have a bit more than that. We got the pictures! Those of us lucky enough to be part of the big street party know 1st hand that its difficult for these two dimensional images to do it justice. But hey its a start. Here is just a sample of the Monday Mas.
