One of the absolute joys of my life is sharing this passion for photography with my oldest daughter. She is also a professional photographer who has a very successful wedding and portrait photography business. We just attended WPPI in Las Vegas and we are taking a few days to drive back to Denver, taking pics and hiking and exploring the entire way. Happy dad.

All images we’re created with the Fuji XT-1. (I’ll have a full review of the XT-1 when I get back to Denver in a few days)
Here’s a few pics of my fav photographer:

Sometimes you have to break the law just a little to get just the right shot.
The most beautiful photographer I know at Grapevine Canyon, NV.

Hiking and shooting with Meghan near Chloride, AZ.
Meghan climbing up a crazy, steep ravine so I could get the following shot of her…

I’m loving the new Fuji XT-1. I think I’ve found the perfect camera for what I do. Beautiful Fuji files and Fuji has finally nailed the autofocus…as quick as any DSLR I’ve shot with. I’m done camera shopping for awhile

I had a chance for a quick trip to Cay Caulker, Belize. The island has a great vibe with tasty restaurants and friendly locals and the water was awesome. I’m already looking forward to going back and spending a week or two. Maybe combine it with a trip through Guatemala to see Antigua and some Mayan ruins.
All these images were shot with the Sony RX100.
Caye Caulker is a 45 minute ferry ride from Belize City.
I could barely move from one side of the boat to the other without falling down, but this deckhand definitely had his sea legs. Caye Caulker in the background.

Not a bad view for lunch.
The Split, Caye Caulker. I could spend a week here chilling out.
The locals were super friendly…not the touristy, I want your money vibe but just genuinely nice people.
I got a little soggy on the ride back to Belize City.
I shot this in Rocky Mountain National Park last week.
The image was captured with the Sony RX100. It’s the best pocketable compact camera on the market.

I shot this yesterday on my way from Denver to Estes Park. St Malo is a beautiful Catholic church near Estes Park, CO.
I shot this with my go to compact camera, the Sony RX100. It’s pocketable and has an awesome 1″ sensor. It’s my fav compact camera right now.

I shot this with the Fuji X100. Still my fav camera. It’s a quirky little camera but I love the interface and the Fuji sensor rocks. Something cool about shooting with a prime lens…makes me think a little more on each shot. My advice for someone just starting out with photography or wanting to hone their craft would be to set aside the zoom lens and shoot with a fixed lens for awhile. It’s made me a better photographer.
