A fun family photo session in Danville

When everyone has fun during family photo session, we get great photographs. This was no exception. My client wanted to have the country feel for the photos. Having a tractor as a prop helped!

My long walk on PCT trail

Ever since I finished the John Muir Trail two years ago, I was dreaming of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. Well, I just finished 1500 mile walk, starting at Mexican border and finishing at Southern Washington border at the Bridge of the Gods (I had to skip High Sierra section due to extremely dangerous river crossings). The reason I had to stop at the Bridge of gods is because I have to photograph a wedding in two weeks. As always, photography is very important to me. So I carried 7 pounds of camera equipment on this walk. To anyone who does backpacking, it is obviously very heavy luxury item. To me, it was a necessity. Here are just a few photographs from my trip:

My backpacking trip in High Sierras.

I just finished a one month, almost 300 mile backpacking trip from Echo Summit (near Lake Tahoe) over Mt. Whitney to Whitney Portal near Lone Pine (Pacific Coast Trail sectional/John Muir Trail). After few days on the trail, PCT hikers gave me a trail name – “Tripod” – because I was carrying a 7.5 pound tripod. After 9 tiring days, I had to ship my tripod home. I am a professional photographer by trade. Nature and star-trail photography are my hobbies. At first I was photographing just vistas, but after a while they felt empty without people in them – I am a portrait photographer for a reason. So I started to include hikers in my photos (PCT, JMT and sometimes support people). If you see anyone you know, please let them know.

This is the visual story of my trip:
