Kansas City from St. John’s Park

I spent my Halloween night out shooting a timelapse of the city from St. Jame’s Park in KCK. I’ve really gotten into time lapse photography and can’t wait to put together a short video with all of the footage.

My KansasCity365 project on Instagram is in full swing and will likely drive me crazy at some point. My goal is to show 365 different photos of Kansas City, over the next year. Angela recommended I put all of the photos into a book at the end of a project. so look for details on that next year sometime. Follow along on Instagram, if you already don’t.

Keep up on Flickr and Instagram for more frequent posts. Also, if you’d like prints, head over to Society6.

Date Night

Sunset on the River

Angela and I spent our Sunday evening sitting on an abandoned pier in the Rivermarket of Kansas City. I wanted to shoot the Buck O’neil Bridge (from a different perspective) and I knew it would be a nice place for us to sit down, relax and enjoy a beautiful sunset.

As always check me out on Flickr and Instagram. Also, if you’d like prints, head over to Society6. If you’ve seen a photo you want a print of, that is not in my store, contact me directly, and we can work something out.

I’ve always been obsessed with weather. Specifically, the spring and summer storm season. Earlier this week KC experienced one of the heaviest rain events we’ve ever seen. Most areas saw around four to five inches of rain within a few hours as heavy thunderstorms trained over the same areas. The lightning was intense, the thunder was loud, and of course the rain poured.

I happened to be at Angela’s house that night, where I camped out under a four foot by four foot overhang watching the rain and lightning. I actually forgot I grabbed my camera on my way up to see her. It wasn’t until the awe of the first intense storm had passed that I remembered and ran in an grabbed it. I stood out there for a good two hours just shooting away, mainly focusing on the street lights and passing cars as it poured. I came away with quite a few shots I enjoyed. I was attracted to the rain falling in these little slivers of light from the street lamps, and the way the lighting changed below the lamp as the rain came down harder and harder.

This is just a small sample of what I captured that evening. I plan to upload these and more to flickr, and of course, these three will also be on instagram. Also, my Society 6 page has been updated with new prints, so check it out.

Spent another Monday out late walking around the city making photos. Since I picked up a 16mm Rikinon Wide Angle Lens, I’ve been diving back into long exposures, which are always fun to shoot, but, take much longer and I end up with less photos taken by the end of the night. But I feel like the quality of the shot is much better.

This time I walked around Sprint Center and the KCPL district. I was able to get to a really nice spot on top of a parking garage on 11th street. Which I got kicked out of within 30 minutes. I had quiet a few people approach me on the street while shooting, asking me questions, and talking to me about photography. I even helped someone adjust there settings on their camera to pick up a similar shot to what I was doing.

All in all, it was another successful night behind the lens. I can;t wait to get out again and get more long exposures. Also, be sure to check me out on Instagram and flickr, for more photos. I’m also slowly working on updating my Society 6 page, so please be patient.

I have been wanting to get a shot of the Kit Bond Bridge for a while. After a late night softball game, I drove to Riverfront park and found a nice spot along the river. At first I was frustrated with the lights lighting the trail and volleyball courts, but it ended up lighting the foreground nicely, and gave me a result better than I imagined.



An Adventure in Long Exposure

I’m back!!! Finally updated the website and decided to switch to a blog format. Over the past few years I have become really involved in cycling, which propelled my art into a different direction. I will get into that more later on down the road as I continue to set up the blog and finish the website. So please, bear with me. Now on to what this post is really about.

Over the past few months I have been shooting long exposures while out on rides. I am still trying to figure out my direction, and different techniques, so for now, it’s experimenting, learning how to shoot better exposures and bettering my skill. Above is a sample of a few photos… stay tuned for more.

Thank you for visiting the blog. I’m glad to be back and sharing my artwork again. For faster updates on what I am up to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Flickr.
