Temecula Creek Inn Wedding

The Temecula Creek Inn is one of my favorite wedding venues. It has rolling green hills, and picturesque trees. This particular shot was done with off camera lighting so the ambient light was controlled and subdued. It is one of my favorite in my wedding portfolio.

Hot Air Balloon, Temecula, Ca

I was flying in a balloon piloted by a friend of mine, and I was having a ball shooting up into the air at other balloons. If you have never taken a ride in a hot air balloon, you are missing out. My GPS device recorded the altitude, and it showed 1878 feet with this shot.

Leonard Knight of Salvation Mountain

Leonard Knight, the creator of Salvation Mountain looks up at his work. The screen behind him was propped up against the back of his car to keep the sun off of him. He allowed me a portrait session shortly before he left Salvation Mountain. He died in February of 2014. He had only good things to say, and was a very nice man.

Bear Creek Golf Club Murrieta

I was shooting a golf tournament for a local church at Bear Creek in Murrieta. Most of my shots were pretty mundane golf type shots. Then I noticed how the light was hitting the players and the grass. I walked up the side of the hill and captured this.

San Diego skyline at sunrise

This shot is one of my favorite shots of the San Diego skyline. I have taken it a few times, so I know exactly when to shoot it, and with what lens etc. Many shooters try to take the shot in the evening. The secret to the San Diego skyline, is to start shooting pre-dawn, and keep shooting into the dawn. Sometimes you get great color in the clouds.
