Upcoming Website Changes

In this age of social media where people are mostly accessing the internet on their phones, it is time to make changes to the website to make it more phone-friendly. So soon you will be seeing a more simplified site, with less text and a bigger font, and I will be putting more of an emphasis on Instagram, this blog, and my vlogging.

From this...

To something more like this. (Work in progress.)

A Dance Performance With a Surprise Ending

Here are some stills taken from 4k video I shot of some dance performances by a local dance studio, in celebration of their anniversary. In between the formal performances there was some ballroom style free dancing when the dance floor was packed. The surprise proposal at the end was a big highlight! These are all from my new Sony A7iii.

A Wonderful Secret Spot For Photography

People who are hiking enthusiasts know that there are many beautiful locations for photography that have one very big advantage over places like beaches: you can have the place all to yourself. You do have to be willing and able to hike on non-beginner trails, but the rewards are wonderful. Lush tropical greenery, waterfalls, vistas, and more, all often with no other people around. Here is one of those places, which I revisited recently.

My Sony A7iii is Here! What it Means for You.

I received my new Sony A7iii camera about a week ago and I have practiced with it a lot and am just about ready to use it on professional gigs. What this means for you is, among other things, no bright lights at your reception, more "cinematic" videos with shallower depth of field and smoother focus transitions, and an increased emphasis on photography. Look for special deals on photoshoots coming soon.

Here are some sample photos taken with this camera in my neighborhood.

Captain Howie is Semi-Retired!

I've featured a lot of weddings by Captain Howie on this blog. If you want to take advantage of his beautiful home and location, and his unique wedding ceremonies, you'd better book him soon! He is not going to be doing these much longer. These are stills taken from 4K video.

Memorial Service for a Much-Loved Person

I fairly often do video of memorial services. This one, for a Samoan man, was very emotional and touching. The service was followed by a moving military burial service. These are stills taken from HD video.
