We are husband and wife photographers based out of Orange County. We mostly shoot endurance events but have a passion for all forms of photography. We started this blog so we could share our passion for photography with everyone.
Here’s a little bit more about Jamie and Bryan…
Photographer, scrapbooker, foodie, wife, and dog lover. All these consume my life in one way or another. I was first introduced to photography by my dad, he took photos and turned them into elaborate collages. That is also probably where I got my first taste of preserving memories. I am now an avid digital scrapbooker. I feel without this hobby I wouldn’t find photography as interesting as I do, they just blend so well together. Bryan and I have two rescue dogs together, Maxx the Malamute/Shepherd and Pearl the white German Shepherd. These dogs are like my kids and I can’t imagine life without their little furry faces. My other hobbies include cooking (and not cleaning up after myself), and reading Kathy Reichs novels. I love country music and wearing cowboy boots. I started as a equine science major at Cal Poly Pomona but left to pursue photography. I’m a native Californian but I hope to leave the state someday. I’m pretty much willing to live anywhere, as long as it has a big backyard for the dogs and a few horses too.
I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona in 2004 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Electronic Business. Ok, now that I got that mouthful out of the way; a little about me. I’ve worked in Information Technology for most of my working years. I like technology and I use it but it is just a tool. My main hobby and side business revolves around photography. I’ve always been interested in photography but never got serious at all about it until I met Jamie. I find that I tend to be able to produce technically good photos easily. Producing interesting and attractive photos is a whole different ball game. That is where I spend most of my time and energy now. The photos I want to capture have something that is interesting but also something that is hidden and lastly something that is a message or a story. If I can capture just one of these images, I have had a good day. In addition to photography I also like to play video games including role playing and fps types. I also own a mountain bike and a road bike although the mountain bike sees more action. My latest hobby involves punching really small holes in really large pieces of paper. I guess I like a challenge although I tend to not be very competitive with others, I instead try to better myself and reach personal goals. I also own two rescue Dogs which I take care of with my wife. They are a handful so it literally does take both of use to take care of them. My dogs are great though and I’m glad we rescued them.
We currently shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Rebel T2i and have a collection of lenses including an EF 24-105mm F4.0L IS USM, EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM, EF 100mm f/2 USM and EF 50mm f/1.8 II. We also shoot with a Canon SD550 and numerous rentals. We shoot film with a Canon A2E and a Asahi Pentax KM.
