As an event photographer I often run into situations where images need to be hand-delivered to my clients on a very short timeline, and sometimes even same-day. This is common at corporate events and conventions where the day's schedule of presentations, workshops, trade-show booths, and educational seminars are followed up by an "after hours" social hour, cocktail mixer, or awards program and dinner. For these functions the event coordinator will typically present a photo slide-show so attendees can relive the activities from their time at the conference.
To meet these tight timelines I usually hole-up in a quiet corner of the convention center or head back to the hotel, run a quick edit on my laptop, and download the photo set onto a USB drive for client handoff… Read More

If you didn't happen to be on the Denver Broncos' roster during the 2015 NFL season, or work in the front office under John Elway's management arm, chances are you did not get an invitation to the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 Ring Ceremony at Mile High Stadium yesterday. Read More

Feel free to browse the image gallery below and take in the sites, from the endless bottles of Moët champagne, Belvedere vodka, Dom Perignon, and Hennessy, to the NFL "Hedge Wall," locker room bars, cigars, and of course, the Super Bowl ring lock-boxes.
In recent months the AirBnB market here in Denver has exploded and become incredibly competitive. Property owners have to set prices to satisfy demand, while not overcharging and potentially scaring customers away. However, high quality photos that capture the uniqueness of a property and showcase the features and amenities offered allow the host to differentiate their AirBnB rental while maximizing profits with higher nightly rates.

During every headshot session, almost without fail, a client will ask me, "can you do just a little bit of touchups here?" or, "can you smooth out a few wrinkles there?" And every time I give the same response, "don't worry, every single one of my photos is touched up before it goes out the door." But, I don't think they always believe me.
I'm here to clear the air and let everyone know that there's no need to feel insecure and that the truth must be known.... Read More

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
