A Spectacular “Fire in the Sky” Bookend Set of Dusk and Dawn Displays with a Side of Driftwood Astrophotography
Late last week, we had the pleasure of spending a night along Georgia’s beautiful Golden Isles before photographing the Days Inn Jekyll Island to help them highlight their newly remodeled rooms. The evening happened to coincide with the Alpha Monocerotids meteor shower which promised to deliver up to 400 shooting starts per hour as the earth briefly passed through the debris field of this ancient comet. Add to that an absolutely stunning sunset and sunrise, and the night’s session certainly warranted our “Fire in the Sky” moniker. Here’s just a sampling of the over 100 fine art images we captured – but please feel free to visit our full collection from Jekyll Island here.
3 Days of Wonder and Nostalgia in New England’s Only National Park
New England, and certainly Acadia National Park, has always held a special place in my heart. I grew up in coastal New Hampshire and some of my fondest childhood memories center around family trips to the park. It was here, my brother and I took our first flight, soaring silently above the rounded mountains of Mt. Desert Island in a glider, and to this day, a clock hangs in my parents house with a photo of my brother, myself and our cousins atop Cadillac Mountain from a trip in the early 90’s. It was here too, that I took Bryn for her first trip to New England, before we were even dating, now 20 years ago, and here we returned two years later as part of our honeymoon. And so, after a far-too-long time away, we returned again this summer to Acadia to introduce our own children to a park that holds so many of our treasured memories.
Exploring the Winding Shores and Skies of Central Georgia’s Lake Oconee
One of the many perks of being a commercial photographer is the opportunity to experience and explore some of the most beautiful parts of the world as you travel in the service of your clients. One such happy surprise was a recent trip to Lake Oconee, in central Georgia – a location that I didn’t even know existed just a few months ago. As providence would have it, we were treated to a stunning, gold-infused sunrise accented by wisps of fog still lingering from the cool pre-dawn twilight.
Sampling Multnomah Falls, Crater Lake, Olympic National Park and all the Roads in Between
So, while I was preparing yesterday’s post, I realized that I had never published part two of our adventure to the Pacific Northwest way back in early October. So, without any further delay, here’s our photos from this great adventure. Over the course of a few days, we visited Multnomah Falls, spent a day on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, did a drive-by of Mount Rainier, and took a day trip along the volcanic range, stopping along Continue reading →
New Horizons and Some Spectacular Mornings in Portland
A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of heading out to the Pacific Northwest for the first time – traveling to Portland, OR to shoot for two of our regular clients. It was a wonderful, albeit quick trip to the Left Coast. Today is our first of two posts from the trip – this time focusing on the city of Portland and a pair of rather stunning Continue reading →
