In 2012, 15 of my images were published in a catalog by the Laguna Art Museum documenting the work of renowned painter and sculptor Victor Hugo Zayas. I photographed the process involved in transforming guns confiscated by the L.A.P.D. into powerful sculptures. I was also fortunate to have several images displayed in the Laguna Art Museum as part of Mr. Hugo's "Mi Obra" solo exhibition.
The wonderful folks at Tamron have published a wide variety of my images in their national newsletters and in commercial publications that detail my work with their fantastic lenses. Tamron also helped sponsor my 2015, solo exhibit, and hired me to teach their 2016 Night Photography Workshop in Yellowstone National Park.
In 2015, Manfrotto chose me to be a Manfrotto Ambassador. I've used their monopods and tripods for years, along with their LED lights. I'm pleased to be among a very select group of Manfrotto Ambassadors worldwide.

My surfing images were published in Popular Photography in a story about Tamron's amazing 150-600 telephoto. I love this lens! Incredible reach and an incredible value. This lens goes for around $1300 USD, whereas the Canon 600 f/4 is approximately $13,000 USD. I use this lens for all my outdoor sports and have terrific results. It is best to use a monopod or tripod when shooting images that are far away, and then turn off the vibration compensation. You can handhold this baby (and use the vibration compensation, which is excellent) but you don't want to it all day.
