Challenge Aspen Golf & Gala 2017

I had so much fun doing photos and video for Challenge Aspen this month.  The event took place in Snowmass, and Aspen.   The St. Regis hosted the Gala and the Snowmass Golf Club hosted the Golf Event.  Vince Gill and Amy Grant were the great entertainment and hosts for the event! This is a photo/video mashup of the events:

Behind The Scenes Photos, Real Estate Photography

Behind The Scenes (BTS) photos from my Real Estate Photography gigs.   Often times, the realtor is speaking on camera, doing an intro for his/her video tour that I produce (see an example here).

My Equipment for Real Estate Photography

I have been fortunate to amass some of the greatest ‘toys’ out there for my real estate photography ‘career.’  I say that in quotes as I find it hard to think of it as work, since I enjoy it so much! I truly have some of the finest gear available for the job.  Here are some of the items I use: Canon 5DS-R This is almost a medium-format camera, and at this time is the highest megapixel DSLR you can buy.   The resolution is insane.    When I deliver a photo to you using this camera, I encourage you to…
