I am a professional landscape photographer and storm photographer/spotter/chaser in southern Louisiana. I started shooting in 2006, while serving in the United States Air Force, and picked it back up with my first year long project in 2012 after I retired. I am a Certified Basic Skywarn Storm Spotter (2013) and Advanced Skywarn Storm Spotter (2014). Besides shooting landscapes, I also shoot star trails, sunrises/sunsets, timelapse videos, nature (flowers are my favorite), macro, and trick photography.
My Equipment –
I shoot with a Canon 50D. I have three (3) different lenses – 18-55mm kit lens, 28-90mm kit lens, 75-300mm lens. I have a couple of filters, a couple of screw on lenses for the 18-55mm and 28-90mm lenses. I do use a Meade 4 inch telescope for my moon shots. I use a remote release for doing long exposure shots like fire spinning, star trails, and lightning. I have an HP laptop with Windows 8.1. For my post processing, I use Lightroom 4 and Photoshop 5.1. I occasionally use Photomatix Pro for my HDR pictures. I also use the Pixelbender Plugin for Photoshop.
Donations to –
After my first year long project back in 2012, I was interviewed by Tristan Jud from RAW. Here is the link to the interview.
Readers’ feedback is important to me; it has guided and shaped my photography tremendously over the past three+ years. I want this photo-blog to be a blockbuster. However, if you stumble upon this blog and see something not quite right, I will urge you to drop me a note. Your critique will help as an energy boost.
I hope you enjoy my photography. Thanks
