January 15th was the big day at MacWorld Expo 2008 and as always I made my annual pilgrimage. Apple is doing well these days and as a result the number of vendors attending the expo seemed to be at an all time high. I can’t recall a MacWorld that was as large and well attended as this one. On the other side I thought this was one of the poorest run MacWorld events. Pre-registration hardly yielded much benefit.
Check out the epic 2010 Mavericks Surf Photos taken February 13, 2010 Saturday was the 2008 Mavericks Surf Contest and I had the opportunity to photograph it from the shoulder of the surf break. The event was incredible as always. Surf conditions were big to say the least and the performances of Greg Long (the winner of the contest), Jamie Sterling, Grant Washburn, Grant Twiggy Baker, Even Slater and Tyler Smith were
Thursday it was leaked that the Mavericks Big Wave Surf Contest is being called to take place on Saturday January 12, 2008. If you’re in the area and are thinking of witnessing the spectacle for yourself read up on access restrictions and alternate locations to view the surf contest such as at AT&T Park on the big screen.

It’s been a great year for photography and as the year closes out I thought it would be fun to select my favorite photos from the year. I had a tough time narrowing things down so here they are… Honorable Mentions: Honorable Mention #6: Los Angeles Sunrise This was one of the most dynamic cityscape I took this year, but as much as I liked it compared to some other photos taken this year it didn’t ma
Today the Mavericks Surf contest official waiting period begins. At any point between today, December 7th 2007, and March 31st 2008 the contest can be called. Once the contest is called invited surfers and surfing fans have 24 hours to travel from where ever they are worldwide to the event. This past Tuesday waves reached nearly 70 feet at Mavericks. With great surf so early in the season lets hope the contest happen
I couldn’t help, but post these to photos from this past weekends Icer Air event. I thought these two photos were particularly cool. (I’ll forever resist using the term “sick”). Koji Kraft was really ripping it up on the vert ramp and at the end of Neil Hendrix’s run he flashed a great face.

Yesterday was a great day at Icer Air 2007. The ski and snowboard big-air competition was incredibly fun to watch and photograph. I spent my time getting photos of the ski and snowboard big-air competition as well as shooting the activities on the vert ramp. Below are a few samples of photos from Icer Air 2007 and another 64 photos are initially only available at my photo archive. Icer Air 2007 Photo Archive Jumping
This weekend things kickoff at Icer Air 2007 here in San Francisco. World class skiers and snowboarders face off in an extreme sport competition at AT&T Park in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Yesterday I got a chance to take a quick look at the final stages of construction on the main ramp. I think this year the ramp might be even taller than last. Icer Air 2007 starts around 3pm today so if you’re in
