I captured another gorgeous sunrise earlier last week but unfortunately the iPhone 6 Plus does no justice for how it really looked in person. This timelapse was taken right under the Courtney Campbell Causeway overlooking Downtown Tampa. Make sure to watch in HD and turn up the volume! Music: Activa – You Are Here (feat.

It feels really good to be back at it again, I think I finally found something that truly makes me happy. When I am out taking photos I feel all my worries and fears subside as I focus on natures beauty. I have been fortunate enough to live in such a beautiful place where every morning and every night is a sight to see. It still baffles me how many people take it for granted on a daily basis.
Growing up in the Tampa Bay Area I thought I knew the area pretty well but I continue to find new spots to photograph. Last night I went by the Tampa International Airport and I was able to capture some great photos. Here is one of those photos. This photo is composed of 7 bracketed exposures, then merged in Photomatix and finally edited in Lightroom. Read More +
With the recent time change I am now able to shoot photos after work. Last week during work I noticed some nice clouds, I knew that it would be a good day to go shoot the sunset. Here is a sample of what I was able to capture. While I was shooting the sunset, this huge roll cloud formed over me. It was gone within a couple minutes!
I was asked to drive a friend to a party last week and then pick them up a few hours later. Instead of going back home and waiting, I decided to walk around Downtown Tampa to try and get some practice with long exposures. What do you guys think, which photo do you prefer? The black & white or the color?
I captured this beautiful photo a few weeks back. I was waiting to share this in hopes that I would find the SD card that had all the shots from this set but had no such luck. The sun lined up perfectly with this little tree, poor thing is struggling to survive. As always, thanks for looking & feel free to share!
I was in Downtown Tampa last week and I had some extra time to kill so I went exploring. First shot was taking on the William F. Poe Parking garage. I thought it would be cool to show off the whats in front & behind me, I am really starting to like the SEL1018 lens! The second shot was taken from my car window while I was at a stop light. I really liked how the S. H. Kress and Co. Building Logo looked, everything else just Read More +
This past weekend I went out with some friends to get footage for an upcoming video for “Tampa Bay is Awesome”. We were out for a good 10 hours all around the Tampa Bay Area, from Downtown Tampa to St. Pete Beach. I would have liked to spend more time taking photos of all the spots but we were mainly out to get video footage with my friends drone. We filmed 2 videos, the first being the making of and the other being the actual promotional video. Read More +
Last year I got this photo off the Gandy Bridge in Tampa, Florida, I didn’t think much of it at first. After a few months had passed, I went to edit some photos from the set and I realized what I had captured. After sharing this photo on 500px.com, I was contacted by some people who do the marketing for “Church’s Chicken”. Being brand new to the photography scene (about 2-3 months of shooting experience), I had no experience with selling prints so I agreed to allow Read More +
I have been shooting photos with the same kit lens (SEL1650) for almost a year now, it was the lens that came with my Sony Nex-6. The SEL1650 is a great beginner lens but if I was trying to get better quality images I knew I had to upgrade my glass. After researching for months I made up my mind on the SEL1018, it has great reviews but it was tough to justify the $850 price. It went on sale last week for $750, plus Read More +
My TBT (Throwback Thursday) for this week is a photo from 2014 taken on Honeymoon Island in Dunedin, Florida. The sun had already set and I was waiting to see how the Golden Hour would look like, after waiting about 20 minutes and I was rewarded with this view! This photo is composed of 3 Bracketed Exposure, taken with my Sony Nex-6 and SELP1650. If you like my work please Like ✔ Comment ✔ Share ✔ Follow ✔
The past week I was on a business trip for work, I took my camera with but the few times that I went out to capture the “Sunrise” & “Sunset” it was completely overcast. Since I haven’t been getting lucky with the weather outside I had to resort to shooting indoors. The photos I am sharing today are from “Joto Japanese Restaurant” in Clearwater, Florida. This place was awesome back in the day! Don’t get me wrong, the food is still great and the servers Read More +
