Life in Focus

Super stoked for the release of F-Stop Gear’s Life in Focus episode featuring yours truly, shot by Cameron Sylvester.

On The Move

After an incredible trip to Alaska, I came home and a few days later was on the move again. Friday I was shooting for Salomon at Snowbird, Saturday and Sunday shooting at Breckenridge, for Vail Resorts, on Monday shooting for Mountain Hardwear in Marin County, and on Tuesday and Wednesday back in Colorado shooting for Powder Magazine in Boulder and Aspen. It was a whirlwind trip with late night flights and a lot of driving, but really productive and a lot of fun.

It was nice to be home, but the action picks up again next week with back to back shoots in Kirkwood, Mammoth and Moab. Always on the move!




Sony NEX-7 – A Big Camera in a Little Body

I had the opportunity to test out the Sony NEX-7 camera this winter. It’s a small, mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses that’s only slightly larger than a point and shoot, and it has most of the features and image quality of a full size professional camera. What I’m most excited about is that it shoots 24 MP Raw files at up to 10 frames a second – a big plus for shooting any action sports.

I’ve had it in my pack as a backup camera, or sometimes I’ll ski around with it in my pocket and pull it out for quick shots on the mountain. I’ve put it to use in a variety of situations, from fast action at the X Games, cold deep powder in Utah, to spontaneous travel photos in Europe, and have been really impressed with the results and quality of the images so far. Especially in broad daylight, the image detail and dynamic range are really good.

There’s a lot packed into this camera, so it’s worth taking the time to learn all the functions, but overall the controls are pretty intuitive and the settings are easy to adjust on the fly. The autofocus works well when you need it and it has a cool feature that zooms when you want to focus manually so you can really dial it in. The low light capabilities and the size of the image buffer don’t stand up to a full size DSLR, but overall it’s an amazing little camera that is setting the stage for things to come.

Smaller, lighter, faster – that’s the future for everything electronic. The Sony NEX-7 is a big step in that direction and overall does a great job going head to head with my full size Nikon DSLR. I’ve been looking for a camera like this that I can grab and go, or take with me on long adventures when weight is an issue. Now that spring is here, I’m really looking forward to taking it with me in my Camelbak on long mountain bike rides and coming back with quality images.

Here are a few shots I’ve taken with the NEX-7 this winter. I’m excited to show you more soon….
