San Diego Magazine

I'm officially allowed to post the images I took for San Diego Magazine now : ) May's gone to print and is already on some news stands I've seen. The article details the many outdoor activities at your fingertips here in SD county. It's a great time to get out too as it's not too hot in the desert areas and the crowds haven't discovered the beaches yet! I'll post additional images from the article in subsequent posts. I know most of my friends who keep track of this blog are out of state, but if you'd like additional info. on any of these locations, don't hesitate to ask!

Jazzed about the cover, that was a bonus! Cycling in Ramona.

After a couple attempts, I was finally able to schedule everyone on a day when the sea was calm in La Jolla. Taking my big camera out on a kayak kinda gives me the willies. You pretty much know you're gonna get wet and trying to keep cameras dry is always a challenge. This kayaking/snorkeling image is parts of five or six shots, but essentially two main ones; one on the water's surface and one below using the D10, meshed together in photoshop. Big thanks to San Diego Bike and Kayak there in La Jolla,

Running in Torrey Pines State Park.

These two were taken in Penasquitos Canyon. My love for mountain biking was stoked going there a couple times. The second shot is actually taken partially underwater. I got a waterproof point and shoot, Canon's D10, for some upcoming shoots. Needless to say, after last summer's trek up the Virgin River in Zion,, trying so hard to keep the camera ABOVE water, it was against all of my instincts to submerge one!

Amazing work, James! Congrats on the cover and all came out awesome!

Also, thanks for the comments on my blog and birthday wishes! I've been renting the Dynalite XP1100 battery pack from Samy's. It's worked out really well...I get about 250 pops with 1-2 lights hooked up.

Thanks Toby. Yea, the spread was a blessing. What could be better than nature and photography?! That's how we met!
