Not to long ago, I shot for a new energy client.  I photographed a new drilling location from the ground as well as flying my drone for some great aerial shots.  I also photographed a fracking job for them.

I'm in Austria teaching lighting workshops as well as speaking at 3 live events for Nikon.  This trip to Austria is my 9th visit in 8 years, and I'll be here for 3 weeks. I will also be returning for two weeks in November.  I've been asked to talk about the new release of Nikon's D-850 camera.  I was sent one of these cameras to put it through it paces.

The image above was taken with the new D850 camera, the lens was a Nikon 200mm f2.8 lens.  What a wonderful lens, a bit heavy but such a beauty.  The out of focus area behind my subject is just gorgeous.

As I stated above, I returned to Austria just two weeks after returning. November was busy as well teaching.  I had 3 Nikon NPS workshops, 2 in Vienna and one back at Puchberg, Wels.  I photographed a wonderful model by the name of Christina, we used hired her for the NPS workshops as well as some personal shoots.  Here are a few of those images of Christina I really like.

NCI Group Photography

I was contacted by NCI Group, a Houston based company needing some photography in the Denver area.  I provided drone as well as ground photography for them.  NCI designs, manufacture and market a comprehensive line of metal buildings and components for the nonresidential construction industry.

I went out to Parker, Colorado to photograph a stable complex which incorporated the building materials NCI manufactured.  Here are a few images taken in a span of a few hours on location.

Join me on the fantastic trek breathtaking trek through British Columbia. We'll be visiting the beautiful and vibrant city of Vancouver with its unique architecture. Vancouver is a special mix of eastern and western influences set on the Pacific coastline with towering mountains!

We will also be visiting Victoria, the provincial capital.  We'll be visiting the Butchart Gardens, a unique botanical garden set in an abandoned quarry-simply beautiful! We'll cruise the Juan de Fuca strait looking for orcas, humpback, minkes and exceptional vistas. We will do a night shoot of Parliament, which is spectacularly lit at night.

Then we will head inland to a local falconry, for a unique chance to photograph birds of prey close by.  We will also attend a demonstration of their unique abilities. We will also stop by a local equestrian farm, to photograph thoroughbred and quite possibly a horse show!

Come join me for a unique experience, and discover vibrant Vancouver, quaint Victoria and stunning vistas.  For more informations, visit Highlight Photo Tours.

I've been busy shooting for several clients asking for aerial "Drone" photography.  I was recently in Kentucky shooting a Amazon Fulfillment Center and in Florida shooting a shopping mall and storage facilities.

I've been flying a drone for a few years now, my latest craft is a DJI Phantom 4 Pro +.  The build-in camera shoots a 20 MP image and shoots 4K video. I just love this drone, the images are just gorgeous.
