Yellowstone Round 1

10 Dec

I spent some time this summer visiting America’s national parks. One of my favorite parks is Yellowstone – it’s so expansive and diverse, I loved just driving around looking for animals or beautiful landscapes. There was no shortage of either.

The Last of the 747s

1 Nov

I spent the past weekend doing something most people think is a bit crazy: I flew from Chicago to South Korea and back in 48 hours.

Why? Primarily two reasons: (1) why not? I’ve always wanted to check out Seoul and (2) this was the last (real) time United was flying “The Queen of the Skies”, the Boeing 747.

NYC Summer Helicopter

7 Oct

I’ve been trying out my luck this summer with helicopter tours of NYC, courtesy of FlyNYON. Regardless of photography, it’s a great experience overall. The pilots are generally well experienced and you can get so close to some of the buildings that you feel like you can touch them!

We played around with different angles and different focal lengths to come up with a few different image styles below. Let me know which you like! You’ll find the full album here.

NYC Helicopter Photos

12 Mar

Recently had the opportunity to photograph New York City out of a doors-free helicopter. Freezing cold, we shot all around the city with our extremely skilled pilot, Chris, from FlyNYON. It was a great experience – will be back soon!

Japan Again

I stopped over again in Tokyo for the weekend. This time, I had a better idea of what spots I wanted to visit and was able to cram more activities in for the short weekend.
