“Super Moon”

At 11:35 on May 5th, the moon was going to be the closes to the earth. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of a great picture so I made sure to have my camera with me where ever I might be. Around 7, clouds had set in. I was watching TV, drinking a beer, checking on the hidden moon every half hour. The first picture was taken somewhere around 11. Majorly disappointed I went back in side. Clear skies were no where to be seen.

Every half hour I would peak outside and go back in with disappointment. Around 1:45 I was about to call in a night and took one more glance. The moon was showing just a little bit.

As the night wore on, I snapped a way. The moon became more and more clear. I could see clear skies but was way to tired.


I had a ton of great ideas for this super moon but I needed to see the moon when it first came up. I’ll have to wait til next year for this opportunity. Until then, these pictures will have to do : ) I hope you enjoy them!



Last year I went to the island of Kauai, Hawaii with my good friend Calvin. Calvin had a Cannon rebel and I had a Cannon Powershot digital camera. The shots Calvin took compared to my camera were amazing. This year I went back with the family and a much better camera, a Nikon D5100. I was ready and really looking forward to learning more about this camera. Needless to say, I was really happy with my pictures from this trip and I hope you enjoy them.

A trip down memory lane

I was just searching for a picture to add to my website that I am re-doing and started going through pictures of a trip back in 2009. My buddy Kevin asked me a week before if I wanted to go on a trip I wouldn’t forget. I agreed to it and we were off to do one thing and that was to fish like no other. I hope you enjoy these pictures of that trip. This was basically the start of Clearwater Media without me really realizing it.

Fishing Trip in Maui

Originally I went on this trip to catch fish. It turned out to be a little more work then expected. I told the guys who I was and what I did. It turned out they all wanted videos from the trip so I ended up filming the whole thing. Here is a 9 minute video of the trip.

If you ever want to have a camera along on a special outdoor trip of yours, I would love to help you out with that. Feel free to contact me.

Signs of Spring

Today I seen the first signs of Spring from my window. I rushed out there with my D5100 and took some shots.




I seen a hawk a couple of days ago chowing down on a deer carcass. Today while out filming for the trapping DVD, he was back. Check it out:
