Life of an Editorial Photographer

My good pal and former partner in crime Joe McNally just wrote as only as he can what it is like being an editorial photographer. He sums it pretty damn succinctly and while it is the reality, there is one other aspect of the post you might not grasp at first. And that is, we wouldn’t have it any other way because in the end, whenever that does come, we will be ahead! You need to read it, a couple of...

Moose’s Updates

Back in the old days, prior to the blog, we had Moose News, an email blast we’d send out with Moose news. Once the blog went live, Moose News went away. Recently, a bunch of folks have called the office asking how folks are able to sign up for our workshops before they are announced on the blog. It’s because folks who have already attended our workshop be emailed when we have new offerings. With so many receiving their emails on their smart device, many of asked why not bring back Moose News. Well, we came up with a simple email list using MailChimp. So, fill out the form below and when we have something like a new workshop (have two news ones coming in 2014) you’ll receive an email and be the first to know. No, you won’t receive a ton of emails from us so you will have to watch for those that come. We’re keeping it simple, hope to stay in touch with a whole bunch...

Keepin It in the Family

One of the GREATEST joys photography has brought comes from the family affair. Many know about our son Jake and all the great stuff he’s doing in the industry like the articles in Dispatch and Plane & Pilot just this month. And I personally enjoy his product reviews like today’s, he does a great job covering all the angles. But I get a kick out of how he has mom with “her” Nikon V2 (don’t even try to get that away from her) shooting the “action” shots (she and that camera do a great job!). It truly is one of the hidden blessings of photography since all four of us (plus one very significant other, Katt) come together to tell the story through photography. Give it a try, get your kids involved, you will find that not only does your photography improve, so does your...

A Great Little Camera

We’d been on for 6 days, up at 0430 and not hitting the sheets until 0000 so we took a morning off. We decided to see some of our history, play tourist and tour the Houston Control Center. Having grown up in the era of moon walks, having an uncle very much part of the program, it was a must see. And it didn’t disappoint! I wanted to take photos but I wasn’t wanting to carry the D4 / 18-35AFS un the Vulture strap, I wanted to play tourist but wanted Raw files knowing the tour would be quick, lighting varied. I had the perfect answer with me, the Coolpix A. The Coolpix A simply slipped into my back so carrying it worked great. It has a fixed, 28f2.8, amazingly sharp lens which worked perfect for the tour. Now you might be asking what one does when 28mm is too narrow. It’s a old photography technique, physically move closer. The framing than was done by simply moving closer or...
