Zip Lining!

Zip LIne, Sports, Bootleg Canyon, Boulder City, Adventure

We wanted to do something special on our vacation last year and we thought zip lining would be perfect. Just outside of Vegas in Bootleg Canyon is where we traveled to the top of a mountain, courtesy of the company who ran the zip line. There we rode 4 separate lines down the canyon totaling about a mile in length. All we could say was “WOW!”

The image was a grab from the GoPro camera on my chest. That’s my daughter on the left.

Haven’t we all been there?


Are You Listening?

Half the problems in life are not listening. Whether we’re listening to our wives, husbands, moms and dads, they tell us something but our thoughts are elsewhere. This  also applies to our jobs. Our clients/employers provide info on what they want. Our job is to listen and, hopefully, enhance what they’re asking for. On a recent assignment last year I had to capture a portrait of an employee in a toy store without any brand identification. In other words, I couldn’t photograph the person in front of any Barbie dolls or some other famous brand. While it was difficult to find the right angle in the toy store for the portrait, I listened to the client and got the image they needed. Yup, listening helped. It’s a simple task, but one often ignored.

Track and Field

Now that it’s springtime (you’d never know it with today’s weather), track & field is back in action and the runners are gearing up. My daughter is on the team (no, that’s not her in the photo). Her first field event is early next month. I’m looking forward to seeing her in action.

An article today in the New York Times doesn’t bode well for my profession – “For Photographers, the Image of a Shrinking Path“.
