A Little Book

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

A cool little photo book came in the mail today.  Put it together as a test run, you can contact me directly if you want one.

Most images are from Mount Hood this year and a few from Mount Rainier a few weeks ago.  It feels good to have some images in print and book form. This size is a cool little 6×8.

Sony A7 and Black Diamond

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Perhaps you are asking what the Sony A7 has to do with Black Diamond?

Not too much directly, but through the viewfinder of my new camera…

The two melded recently.

If you don’t know what Black Diamond is, well I’ll tell you a little bit.

They are first a climbing gear company that has been a piece of the climbing fabric as long as I can remember.

Secondly, they’ve been utilizing media in a profound and immersive way through their digital catalogs they’ve released in recent years.

You can check out their sweet spot here: Black Diamond Catalogs

In my climbing, I’ve certainly used my fare share of Black Diamond gear and have looked up to their Ambassadors for the sport of climbing.

Perhaps now you’re ready to see how these two drastically different companies came together in my vision.

It was this last month, during my AMR Reach and Treat Academy Finals Exam process. Specifically, during the Navigation segment.

The light was greatly diffused through a dense cloud cover and then through the tree canopy and finally around the outer edges of our covered working area. It actually felt a bit like evening, though it was midday.

My buddy Erik was pulling through some calculations, I decided to take advantage of the moment. The following image pulled through my lens and onto my new Sony A7’s sensor. This ended up being my first image I edited in my newly updated Lightroom processing software.

It has become a current favorite of mine. So without anymore delay, here is where and how the Sony A7 and Black Diamond came together:
