(Above: You might be wondering "Scott, why the static no-action shot?" That's because I've found that when the players aren't moving, it's somewhat easier to get a shot in focus, and that "in-focus" thing was eluding me most of the night, so I posted this shot to prove to myself I can shoot a sharp still life. Maybe next time pears in a bowl). I shot another NHL hockey game last night (the Tampa Bay Lightning vs. the San Jose Sharks), and while I certainly did some things better, I didn't do enough of them to actually share the actual shots. My painful dance of learning to shoot through a very small hole in the ice continues. My angle this time was actually worse than in the other game, and I could only shoot the goal directly in front of me, and about 3/4 of…


Howdy folks. Sorry for the late post, but I took today off to spend with my sweetie (we actually snuck away last night and headed to our favorite getaway place, and now we're spending the day shopping and just hanging out, which I understand may include a stop at a guitar store). :)  By the way: the photo above, taken at Vegas Photoshop World, is by my buddy Mike "Hollywood" Kubeisy" Today we're celebrating our 25th Valentine's Day together (and this year we'll be married 23 years!). As all my friends are quick to remind me --- I am the luckiest guy in the world (Hey, at least I know it). :) Make sure you check back tomorrow for Guest Blog Wednesday, and here's wishing you a Valentine's Day to remember! :)


Hi everybody—-it’s time (well, it's a bit overdue) for my 3rd annual “Best of 2011 Awards” (Well, it’s not actually my 3rd best of 2011; it’s my 3rd “Best of” awards but you know what I mean). It’s important to note once again that I didn’t say “Best photography gear” or “Best Photoshop stuff” (though both of those are represented). Instead, this is just my favorite “bestest” stuff from 2011, (including things like songs, movies, travel stuff, food, etc.) presented in no particular order. Hope it starts off your New Year right! (By the way; make sure you read my disclaimers at the end of the list).

OK, I've got nuthin today. I had great hopes to do my annual "Best of 2011" post today, but I had so many things due on my plate, that it got really late, and....well...I didn't even get it started. So, welcome to "I got nuthin' Friday." I'll ask Braddo to post the winner from yesterday's first "Free Stuff Thursday" later today, but for now...well....nuthin. Despite the fact that your Friday visit here started off with a bust, I hope you have a kick-butt day nevertheless. Cheers, -Scott He's got nuthin'

It's a national holiday here in the US (the banks are closed, government offices, and so on), and our offices are closed today as well, as we celebrate the New Year. I'm off today from work, but I'm psyched to be shooting the Outback Bowl on assignment from Southcreek Global (The Georgia Bulldogs vs. the Michigan State Spartans). It's my last scheduled football shoot for the season (but hey, ya never know, right?), but now that football is almost over, it could be time to shoot some NHL Ice Hockey soon, eh? :) If I get anything decent, I'll post a few here tomorrow. Here's wishing you your best year yet!!! Cheers, -Scott

It's here! It's finally here! If you’ve been a faithful reader of this blog for the past five years, you probably remember back when it was called my “Gonzo Holiday Gear Guide,”but last year I dropped the Gonzo because, honestly, I really have no idea what Gonzo actually means. However, I know what Awesome means, and that’s exactly what’s in this year’s edition (Yay----wild cheers ensue!). I think what makes it extra awesome is that I purposely avoided choosing any really expensive gear for the guide, and instead, I really tried to focus on choosing great value-for-the-money gear. Anyway, the Gonzo is out, the Awesome is totally in, and this year’s guide is packed with some really cool stuff that we absolutely, positively don’t need on any level, but we desperately want nevertheless because that is, after all, half the fun! The Rules: These…
