This is a shoot I did for a client for their Aikido Martial Arts Dojo (Studio).

I guess you could say don’t mess with her.

While I was in Balboa Park photographing a few of the Pear Trees in bloom I couldn’t resist shooting this skateboarder doing a 360 flip at the fountain (yes he landed it).

Every February the Pear Trees Blossom in Balboa Park in San Diego, CA. It only last about a week or two but it’s quite beautiful as Balboa Park is full of them.

I had the pleasure of shooting Supercross again this year in San Diego for the 2013 season at Qualcomm Stadium.

Here are a few shots. I was using a slow shutter speed and panning technique on these photos (as well as a wide aperture f2.8) to get an even more out of focus and blurry background. You will also notice that the spokes on the wheels are blurry as opposed to when you use a fast shutter speed that freezes the spokes. It adds an element of movement and as well as speed.

I think I was at about 1/160th of a second (pretty slow for such a fast sport). As you can see however with the right technique you can get some pretty cool results.

I’m a little backlogged in the blog image posting department but here are some photos from the Charger vs Ravens game this past NFL season. Who knew at the time that Baltimore would then go on to win the Superbowl.

There was a pretty good size swell today. So I went out and played with my new toy in the shore break and got these photos.
There were some 6-12ft face waves pounding me into the sand.
It was Fun!!!
