This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing guests at PostNet's Annual THRIVE Conference, held in Downtown Denver. AK PHOTO provided a 12' backdrop photowall for photographing guests, and a complete on-site print solution, to provide guests with a keepsake photo and photo folder.

*UPDATE* FEBRUARY 5
Canon 5DS full Press Release has leaked! ... Download the PDF here!
Samples images and videos are available on the Canon website.
Pre-orders have already begun at $3,699.
Canon 5DS News
Specifications for the new EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R have leaked. The camera will officially be announced by Canon on February 6, with availability in late March or early April. Retail price is confirmed to be $3,699 for the base 5DS and pre-orders have started.
Three Different 5D Bodies
Note the maximum ISO of 6,400. This is NOT a Canon 5D Mark IV and is not a direct replacement to the 5D Mark III. The EOS 5DS and 5DS R constitute a "split" in the 5D line, and are for those specifically seeking high MP bodies and better color reproduction. This sounds like a commercial studio and big-print landscape camera that will try to compete directly with PhaseOne and Hasselblad. Read More

With the new year upon us, and my WordPress website now over 2 years old (with minimal updates in that time frame), I felt it was time for a refresh with AKPHOTO.com, and completely redesigned my website for 2015! It took quite a bit of time going back through my portfolio and re-exporting all the images I wanted to used, but I think the end result was well worth it.
For this new AKPHOTO.com v2.0, I switched over to SquareSpace for hosting. While it is... Read More

Canon's Grip, and Photographers' Gripe
When Canon first released the official BG-E11 vertical battery grip for the 5D Mark III at $349, many photographers balked at the price and chose to wait for the knock-offs to hit the street. The first to arrive was the Vertax BG-E11 by Pixel; a Chinese manufacturer with a reputation for making some decent third party products. When the Vertax version of the BG-E11 launched at $85 with free shipping from Hong Kong, I jumped on it. At almost one quarter the cost of the Canon grip, I could get the same functionality, albeit in a more fragile plastic assembly. But seeing as I don't abuse my gear, I wasn't too worried about a plastic grip. And heck - even if I did crack or break it, I could replace it two times over before coming close to the cost of the Canon version.
A Sloppy Copy
Soon after receiving the Vertax grip I quickly stumbled upon a big problem: batteries left inside the grip suffered gradual power drain, even with both the grip and the 5D3 powered off. It was bad enough that two batteries would be almost completely drained after 7-8 days in storage. This almost cost me a job when I showed up for a gig and found my camera batteries dead. Luckily my 7D backup was... Read More
