The Ol Family Recipe

I spent A LOT of time with my father in the woodshop growing up building all sorts of projects. Learning from his father, a taylor in Hollywood, we had a very set method for each new project. We would first do our homework providing a mental plan of what we wanted to accomplish and most importantly, why. That would often produce a diagram to follow to completion. We then went about gathering first the tools needed to complete the task and then all the materials necessary. Gathering all the parts was a big portion of the project, great care was used in selecting each piece. Once we were in motion, Lord help anyone or anything that got in the way of completing the project. Then came assembly and finally finishing. My dad would always say, “Assembly is 1% and finishing 99% of the job.” We eat dinner on the dinning room table he made to this day and my desk I’m typing at is my grandfathers desk. So I’m...

Beach Bird Day ’15

We’re so happy to offer a shooting opportunity, even if brief. We’ve been asked if we’re offering any Florida Bird photography “weekends” in 2015 like we did in 2014. Our schedule has jammed us up but we are able to offer are two “day” shoots in Ft Myers, FL 05 March and on 09 March. These will be all day, sunburn driven, bird photography crazed day shoots. Ft Myers is one my favorite locations for shorebirds, even shot a KelbyOne class there. We’ll work on techniques from working with long lens, working from the sand, biology, backgrounds and much more. I wish I had more time to spend on the sands chasing the birds this winter. I hope you can join us for the day. If you want to join me (and just two others) on the sands, need to give us a call, fast! Taking just three shooters, price for the day of shooting is $795 and a portfolio review after. If you can join us, give Sharon...

A Thought On Crop

The cropping of an image, the question seems to land at my doorstep a lot since it’s well known, I don’t crop in post. I thought I would repost this post again in trying to answer why I strive for the craftsmanship in the viewfinder before anywhere else. It must have been the first or at the most, the second crit at school the very first semester of the very first year. A student put up their image up on the screen and it was this little, itty pity image. I scratched my head, the instructor just stared. He took the slide out of the carrousel and looked at it, it was all taped up with silver tape leaving this little aperture leaving “the subject” only visible.  All Steve said was, “What, you couldn’t have moved closer, changed lenses?” I seem to have earned quite a reputation for many things, one of them is having a thing against cropping an image in post. So I’ll say this right off...

BTJ Africa is Out!

An issue literally 30yrs in the creation, the latest issue of the BT Journal is out and its massive! It has 70 pages, 200 photographs and more video (amazing footage Brent captured!) then we’ve ever incorporated before. It’s more a iBook than a iMag! And that’s because it’s a big story, our safari in South Africa. To this day I don’t have the ONE word to describe which is why in part, this issue is so huge. As a special thank you, this weekend iPad users can subscribe for a year of BTJ for $9.99. Android users can enjoy a free trial period, allowing you to get the newest issue free for 7 days (please note the subscription will charge like normal after the trial period if you have not cancelled the subscription before the trial ends.) The BT Journal is now read in more countries then ever before and just now exciting our biggest hardcopy subscriber base, we simply can’t thank you enough for all of your support!...
