This is just an amazing use of technology. Google has created a web site with their Google Street Map technology that will take you on virtual tours of some of the most famous museums in the world. You will be able to navigate through the halls of the Uffizi Museum in Florence Italy with a point and click of your mouse. Use the map of the whole museum to find what room you might want to visit, click on the painting to see the most detail brush stroke of Van Gough!

I recommend watching the two videos first to get acquainted. The first one shows the basics of using the site, the second is a little behind the scenes of them making the site.







The only disappointing thing I can say about this site is we can’t view it on our Ipad’s due to the use of Flash. There are some museums that aren’t on the site, like the Louvre in Paris, but I’m sure they’re working on those right now.

Grab a cup of coffee and go stroll down some of the most famous museum corridors on the planet!

High Sierras

Abandon house in the High Sierras



Here are the two latest images from my trip up through the High Sierras recently. This shows you don’t always have to hike a half a day to get to your location. I found both of these right off the main highway.

There are times that really hit why I went into image making, this would be one of them. If I wasn’t a photographer / videographer, I would not have forced myself out of the cozy warm motorhome before sunrise to get out and set this shot up. The morning before, I found this location, but got there a little too late. I knew if I got there right at dawn, before the sun peaked over the mountain top I would have a killer view of the sun rays screaming through the morning fog off the river. I wasn’t dissapointed.

This was a good use of the new GlideTrack I just purchased, you can see in this shot . Note the can of Behold furniture spray, a must to keep the camera glide smoothly on the track.

Shot at Convict Lake California, near Mammoth Lakes.  I was searching for the change of color in the local Aspen trees, I found some here for sure.

I just got back from a terrific job up in Napa, CA. Rather then just show the bottles of wine on my client’s web site, they wanted to show the faces behind the wine to give it a more personal feel to their brand. .  These are the farmers, vineyard owners, wine makers, and winery owners themselves,  that are behind the scenes of producing their product.

We wanted these to be very “real” feeling, not overly styled, just raw, in-the-moment feel to them. Hopefully we pulled that off.

What  better place to work for a couple of beautiful days then up in the wine country!

Now look at these beautiful faces below:

These guys were very cooperative, although, they made me pay for it by lying in their droppings!

Just another day at the office
