Winter ’15/16

It’s officially spring as of a few days ago but winter was awesome. I did so much and got to meet so many sweet people. Shot a friends wedding, throwing down at new years, flew the drone, snowboarding, and got a dog. I think most importantly though I decided to focus on practicing my photography and really make myself get out and shoot instead of just shooting when I was working. I had a good time doing it too. Work picked up or I got lazy again, I’m not sure but I slowed down on shooting personal projects but I guess that’s what’s awesome about posting. It reminds me that what I really love doing and I think I’ll get back out there this week and do some more shooting.

Fall – 2015

DJI_0375

 

Lately I have been rediscovering my love of photography. Taking photo’s and video of things I want to while practicing new techniques has been fun and educational. It’s also been great because I’ve been forcing myself to get out and explore more. A lot of it has been me learning more about flying my drone and learning what works and what doesn’t. Hope you guys enjoy what I’ve been doing because I sure have.

What I’ve been up to this Winter

So I was trying to hold off on posting some pics and trying to do a whole series of the winter. I’ve decided that’s stupid, so here’s whats been going on this winter.

Hurricane Marie

One of the biggest swells we’ve seen in Orange County hit this week thanks to Hurricane Marie. While the wedge was still pretty epic I think that the really cool stuff came from the normally mild newport peninsula. On average, the waves here don’t get much bigger than 4 feet and we rarely see barreling shapes. A good chunk of these photo’s where taken from the 42nd street beach where the average wave was doing 12 feet and getting as big as 15. It was spectacular. I heard that the 17th street area was getting 20+ feet but I didn’t get a chance to check it out.

 

 

I wouldn’t want to be a lifeguard on a day like this. A big round of applause to these guys for braving the ridiculous surf and the unbelievable currents that go along with it.

Whale Watching

Both my brothers live in the Dallas area so getting us all together is pretty rare. It was pretty sweet to be able to go out and chill with them on a boat today though

Fun in my backyard

IMG_5639

Most of the time, I find taking photo’s of things I see everyday to not be particularly interesting, that’s probably why I don’t take photo’s of them. But recently we had some fog so I thought I would give me enough of a new perspective to appreciate what is right there waiting for me. Below are photo’s from Newport’s back bay and above is a shot from the mountains overlooking the Inland Empire.
