Clean Water Music Fest 2015

One thing I get asked about at these type of events is how I get the photos on my phone and on social media so fast. The answer is the EyeFi SD cards. These are great to proof an image or share in real time as something is going on. I love mine and hardly ever run without one.

Saint Augustine turns 450!

I am so happy to be a part of a beautiful little city, the oldest city in the US. We had almost a week of festivities throughout the downtown area. Historical reinactments, music on multiple stages with a main stage highlighting some major acts, cake cutting, and even had the King and Queen of Spain in town to visit! I ran around capturing as much as I could getting images of the people having a blast, the entertainment and anything else that symbolized the anniversary of Saint Augustine. Not only is this a great place to live, with so much history, great beaches, but also some amazingly talented people and inspiring people at that. Here are some of the images I have from my strolling around during the celebration.

The top image I’m looking to make prints so if anyone is interested, let me know! I may add it to the online store coming soon.

Part of Your World

I love getting out when I can and catching good music and friends. A few weeks ago I stopped into Stogies, here in Saint Augustine, to see Sea Floor Explosives play and also for the First Magnitude Tap Takeover. The beer was amazing and the highlight was Jon Bailey singing “Part of Your World” but the adult version. Hope you enjoy the photos and the video. When you get a chance, make sure to check out Stogies, grab a First Magnitude and listen to Sea Floor Explosives!

St Augustine Alligator Farm

I took my kids over to the Alligator Farm here in St. Augustine and we had a blast. I’ve lived here in St Augustine for almost two years, and hadn’t had the chance to see this place. When you get inside, it’s hard to believe how massive it is. Passing by the outside you would never have guessed. It is definitely become one of my favorite attractions here in St Augustine. Go check it out if you come through this way. Here are some photos from the day.

Interview with mentor/instructor Donald Giannatti

Had a little recorded interview with Don Giannatti of Lighting Essentials. We talked about me moving from amateur photographer to getting more gigs and breaking into full time photography. It was great to share my path so far and things I’m working to do to keep and gain new clients.

I never really felt that I had a style, until I had someone come to me a year ago and say “I really love your work…you have this really dark, sort of comic book feel.Tucker Joenz

Gamble Rodgers Music Festival 2015

I spent this past weekend hanging out at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre to listen to good music and see some talented acts. I shoot a lot of live music to hear new music and meet cool musicians. Here are some photos of what I experienced this past weekend. Feel free to leave comments and feedback if you went or go to similar festivals. Thanks for stopping by!

3rd Annual Clean Water Music Fest 2013

I was honored to be a part of and volunteer for the Clean Water Music Fest this year here in Ponte Vedra at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. There were a ton of amazing people and artist/musicians that gathered together for a great cause, and that was to support and help raise money and awareness on getting clean water to the people around the world that don’t have access or means to have clean drinking water. Flagship Romance, Jordyn Jackson and Shawn Fisher, single handedly put this event together and with the support raised over 25K for this amazing charity. Please go check out their page and you can see more info on everything about this event and ways to spread the word and help out. Also check out Charity Water there is more information there about helping to get clean water to people in need.

Here are some photos from yesterday that kind of highlight just a portion of this event.

America…July 4th Street Photography

DSC_7948

I was able to get out for a bit after a shoot on July 4th and shoot some fireworks. Although, when I looked for a place to set up two things occured to me. First, I couldn’t find “that spot” I wanted to take the EPIC shot from. Two, I noticed that it was more interesting to me the people that were out and their reactions to the fireworks. Or better yet, the observance of how people watched and took their own fireworks photos. As I looked around the sea of people watching the show of explosions, I saw a similar trend. Almost every person in the crowd had their hand or hands in the air with devices, taking photos. At this point, I figured it would be more fun to shoot the people and not so much the fireworks. I mean, I think there were only a billion or so images captured of fireworks just in the area I was in on the fourth. So here are my observations of the fireworks show…

Rhythm & Ribs Event

This last weekend I was fortunate enough to volunteer to check ID’s for the Rhythm & Ribs event here in Saint Augustine, Florida. Not only did the event interest me because of the music that was going on, but also a good way to get out in the community to do some networking. Well as it turns out, they could use my photography services by volunteering the following day, Sunday, to shoot some of the festival. So with cards and stickers in one hand and the trusty D800 in the other I set out to document the event…
