What if Money Was No object?

Well said.



New Project Galleries

Two new albums in the Projects section of my site! One is from an architecture and design showcase called CasaCor. The other is a series of aerial images I took while flying only a few thousand feet above Chile in a small two seater plane.

This Photograph is Not Free

Being that I'm currently living in a country where 90% of the population finds little to no value in photography and therefore believes that a photographer should give away his work for free, or at insanely low costs, I thought I'd post a link to an interesting article on this subject. Though the argument has its flaws, the point is all the same and still very valid. There are plenty of people in the US who don't understand photo usage rights or the idea of treating a photographer as a professional who deserves respect and to have his work paid for. But in Chile this problem is 100x worse. Too bad this article isn't in Spanish.

Yosemite Mirrored Lake Series

A few years ago I had a couple days to camp in Yosemite National Park and spend my time shooting as many photos as possible. I was struck with the challenge of trying to photograph Yosemite in a way that was original. The park is insanely beautiful but shooting it from a new perspective can be a bit of a challenge as thousands of photographers flock there every year.

I was wandering around and stumbled upon a small lake at the base of near vertical cliffs. I immediately was drawn to the reflections created by the lake and decided to use them as the basis for some images.

A couple minor adjustments in photoshop (all basic editing techniques) turned some moderately interesting images into something a bit stronger and more engaging (in my eyes, at least).

Peruvian Man

A random photo taken in 2010 in Peru. We were somewhere between Lima and Cusco. The bus had stopped on the side of the road beside a cluster of small homes around a farm. It wasn't exactly a town or a village as it was far too small. We were given a brief glimpse of simple life in the Peruvian countryside and when the moment arose I snapped a few photos of this local looking off into the hills.
