Exploring the Bay Area - Playing with a 5D Mk III

At the beginning of April I flew out to California to do a shoot with Jansport. I had been having trouble with the LCD screen on my Canon 5D Mk II (2) not being visible in direct sunlight, and since this was an outdoor shoot I figured I should have gear I could depend on. Luckily Borrow Lenses is based in the Bay and I was able to pick up a 5D Mk III (3) for rent the same day. 

After picking up the camera I decided to drive to Half Moon Bay and take the 1 back to Marin county, where I was staying. If you haven't done this drive, it's spectacular. Even crossing over the pass from the East side of the peninsula is incredible. 

I stopped at a beach with a lot of surfers playing around in the waves and decided to take the new camera for a test drive. It's always good to familiarize yourself with new equipment before a shoot (I learned that the hard way). 

There was a halfpipe set up just across the street and several kids were rocking it.

Loved this coastline! 

I met an awesome trio from Germany traveling around the west coast in an Escape Camper Van. Shared a few beers and laughs and wished them well on their travels.

 After my shoot I took several days to hang out with friends and explore. I met Anthony a couple weeks before while climbing in Indian Creek. He took me mountain biking on Mt. Tamalpais. It was awesome! Go say high to him at the Sports Basement!

I really loved the Bay area. Marin County was incredibly beautiful and I would love to live there! The weather was incredible while I was there and I was happy to get to see all my friends. If it weren't for the damn traffic it might be almost paradise.

I've worked all over her globe with a diverse set of clients that offer a diverse set of challenges; every one of them a learning opportunity. Whether I'm hanging off a frozen waterfall shooting ice climbing or in a studio working with a model I am adapting, learning, and improving. I've created a mobile studio in the middle of a wild adventure race in southern Patagonia and fought with monkeys to keep my grapes in southern India. Whatever the challenge I will get the shot.

With my photography background firmly formed in the commercial advertising arena, I bring that attention to detail and technical process to adventure photography. And I've spent my entire life adventuring, so I can get any angle you can imagine.

I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place as Boulder, CO. When I'm not shooting for clients I'm out climbing rocks or frozen waterfalls, or cruising down in the backcountry on my skis.
