I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot for The Montgomery Ballet’s 2015 performance of The Nutcracker. Along with photography, I’ve filmed one of the performances in full. This show will be available soon from The Montgomery Ballet on dvd, or as a digital download found on this site in the store.
The full gallery of images from each performance can be found here.

The images are free to download for personal use only. There is a purchase option for prints. If you decide to purchase prints of any of the images, that sale is directly with the print company, not me or the ballet, since I’ve set it at zero markup.
Just a couple quick example shots for the new SLR Magic 1.1 50mm e-mount lens, compared to two other 50mm’s. In hand its an awesome little lens to shoot with. All metal design, buttery smooth focus and de-clicked aperture. Almost everything about this lens, especially the price, are absolutely amazing. I’ve seen some reviews showing the IQ lacking. Draw your own conclusions below. I hope to show more IQ examples here on the blog, though I’ve never been one for shooting brick walls and giant test charts.
Here it is on the Sony a7rii

Unboxing video on the new SLR Magic CINE 1.1 lens for the sony FE mount. Initial review of it are positive. I love the build of the lens. Hefty, well built, smooth focus and aperture ring. Looks really good on the a7rii. Not to mention the price, wow! Keep an eye out here on the blog for more images from this lens and a comparison between it and a few other 50’s.
New release from Edward David Anderson. Live performance at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta Ga. Also on stage is Seth Walker, and Ed Jurdi. Amazing show from these very talented musicians!
