I have been practically jumping out of my skin with excitement for 2 months over this announcement. I've always been a pretty decent secret-keeper but when it's good news you want to shout it from the rooftops. But today is finally the day that I get to help announce the launch of PhaseOne's brand new ground-breaking IQ250 digital medium format back. I was so pleased to be one of the first photographers worldwide to shoot with with the new back and wow is it INCREDIBLE! Standout features for me are the amazingly clean high ISO capabilities and the wireless iPad connectivity for instant image viewing. Check out this video to see a bit of my first date with the IQ250 here. A big thank you to my gorgeous model Jessie Malakouti (Ryan to make his appearance in a later video), RMine Bespoke for the incredible gown, to David Marvel for the

Every year (for the past 11 years in a row), I have sparkled myself up to attend WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International), my industry's biggest convention of the year in fabulous Las Vegas. Aside from getting to learn a few new things, catching up with friends from around the world and taking advantage of all of the fun that Vegas has to offer, a highlight of the convention is always the international print competition. I've entered images for the past few years but only in the past couple of years have I had the opportunity to sit in on the judging process and have found that I have learned more from that experience about the subtle nuances of image creation itself, than I have in any seminar...ever. This year I entered a few images into the print competition. I must admit that I was slightly cranky that I did not

Hello all. I can't believe that January is almost over already. And with February now looming in the not-so-distant future, it's time to start planning for what will come with it...and that is WPPI. For those non-photographers reading this, WPPI stands for Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. It is a huge convention held in Las Vegas every year and this will be my 9th year in a row attending. What can I say, aside from all of the knowledge I've picked up over the years, I've made some valuable friendships with photographers from all over the world and many of them I get to see just once a year as we all descend on and attempt to take over the strip for a few days. This year I'll fly in on February 18th, catch the Joe McIntyre/ Emanuel Kiriakou show at the Palms, hang out with the Pictage people at the

I had a brand new client album come in last week and I just had to take a moment to share a few images. This one is a Queensberry Duo Album which I did for Kristan and Steve. I've been using Queensberry albums since I got into this business way back in 2003. Every year (for 8 years now) I head to the WPPI trade show in Vegas to make sure they are still the finest albums in the world...and they have never let me down. There are more and more album companies popping up all over the place these days but it always concerns me when I see wedding albums floating around out there that look like the pages might crease or the books might just fall apart any second. The craftsmanship of these babies is just unparalleled in this business as far as I'm concerned and the printing
