Truckload Coonbait Promo 2013

For the past couple years I have been working with Truckload Coonbait. In 2011 we released a promotional video that took off at the conventions and on Youtube. The video was a HUGE success. This year, Trent Masterson came back to me and asked for another video to be made. Here is what we came out with and this is the new 2013 Truckload Promo video.

Canadian Skies-Part 2

I started writing part one of this blog while I was in Canada but never got around to posting it. It then started to rain the last 5 days and I didn’t know if I was going to be able to shoot any more pictures. I did shoot some pictures while inside of pets. Needless to say, the rain let up on our last day and I was able to shoot some more of New Brunswick beauty.

When you travel as much as I do, traveling plans don’t always seem to work out. Usually, delays are caused my transportation failures or cancelled flights. This time, it had nothing to do with transportation, sort of. Thursday when we were suppose to come home, my Grammy woke up sick. Driving the 18 hours home would have been miserable for her, so we held off. Then the sickness slowly made its way through the family. My mom started to feel nausea and then around 4 PM, I was down for the count. We ended up not leaving til 8 AM the next day, 26 later then we wanted. Of coarse, when we finally get going, we hit this traffic.

It turns out a truck ran into another truck and blew up. Unfortunately, the trucker who ran into the other trucker passed a way.

If you read my last blog post, you probably have seen all the pictures added to this gallery. If not, here is the rest of the pictures:

I also have completed another video I am trying to upload to YouTube. Once that is completed I will be making another blog post. Hopefully sometime today!

Canadian Skies

Last week I was in New Brunswick Canada visiting family. Of course the Nikon D5100 came with me.  I haven’t been back to Canada in about 15 years so I didn’t know what to expect when I got there. It was a whole different world out there. It was very green, rolling hills and amazing sunsets. Potatoes farms everywhere. Here are some pics from the vacation. More to come later.

There was so much amazing opportunity for great pictures. I suggest you check out my facebook for the rest 🙂

More New Brunswick pictures to come later!

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Spring Time

Spring use to be just another season to me. Everything started off ugly and slowly turns green, really green. Since I moved to the country I have began to enjoy spring. Every where you turn there seem to be new life. The eggs are hatching and animals are giving birth to babies. I was mowing the lawn the other day and came across a hole in the ground. It looks as if a bunch of baby turtles were born. I ran to the post office to send a package and seen a doe with a new-born fawn in the middle of a field. Pretty cool!

We have a baby fawn running around our property. I have been enjoying watching it on my field cameras when ever I get videos of it. I hope to get some pictures of her soon. Here is a short video of the fawn:

I have been riding my bike a lot lately. I made a time-lapse with a Go Pro. I was riding around the block.

I haven’t taken a lot of pictures lately do to a possible move and a new business venture. Here are the few that I took the last couple of weeks. I know my grammy will like the first photo.

As always, check out my facebook page for more pictures:

I will also be leaving for 10 days on a little adventure. Hope to have a lot of great pictures when I get home.

Birthday Weekend in Northwestern, Michigan

My birthday came and went. Since I do a lot of work in the outdoors, I am usually working on Memorial day weekend. That was not the case this year. I did shoot some pictures but I don’t really call that work. This year I was able to spend my Birthday up north at Interlochen State Park. We traveled all around the northwest part of the state. It made for a great weekend. If only I got to catch some fish.

This female duck decided to lay eggs right next to our camp.

We love to spend time in Frankfort and Elberta.

As always, more picture can be seen here:

“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!

Hawaii

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.

More pictures can be seen at my facebook:

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.
