Good evening everyone!
A lot has happened in my world since my last post a few weeks ago. You may be wondering why there’s no metadata for this photo. Well, for one it’s because my Lightroom catalog got messed up and deleted most of my photos and for two it’s because I have lost all the shots that I’ve ever taken with my Sony.
Weekend before last, you all may have seen my stories here on Instagram about the tragedy that happened with my camera. If you missed it, here’s what happened: I have been traveling up north in Maine for the past few weeks and have been staying with family on Clearwater Lake which has a gorgeous view of the mountains and hills. One evening after a solid day of stormy weather, the sky cleared up a bit and a gorgeous fog began to roll in over the hills right before sunset. I grabbed my camera and tripod and headed out to one of the many rocky areas by the water. Once everything was set up perfectly I began to shoot. However, I only managed to get this one shot before my tripod suddenly slipped and plunged in to 3 foot deep lake water with my A7 and Canon 50mm f/1.4 FD attached. It was only submerged for about 2 seconds before I jumped in and was able to retrieve it, however I think it was just enough time to kill it.
My camera and lens is currently in a bag of instant white rice and I’m hoping for the best. Thank you to my wonderful friend @clairegould2 for being so supportive and answering my frantic messages I sent her as everything unfolded. I am so appreciative for all your love Claire! Also I am so thankful to @tonynorthrup, @ashieldsphoto and @kylewolfe_ for all their wonderful suggestions and help regarding the best methods to try and save my gear.
Sorry for such a depressing post, I will have some much lighter content coming up super soon, so stay tuned.

Good Evening everyone. I hope you weekend was awesome! Sorry for not posting all week! I've been super busy and just now had time to sit down and edit. On Thursday I sent my camera off to @nikonusa for repairs to my battery and memory card ports (they both broke and went missing on my trip to California). I have decided to sell all my Nikon aps-c gear and buy a used full frame camera, perhaps some sort of D610 or Sony A7 (We might end up having the exact same camera @kylewolfe_)! Since I won't have a camera for three weeks, all the shots I post will be older. Probably lots from California and landscapes that I keep meaning to post. What do you think of this new posting format? I'm giving it a try :) #EverydayArt #Morning #Presunrise #Sunrise #Mist #LongExposure #Landscape #Seascape #DeepColors #NikonPhotography #nikon_photography_ #tclive #NikonPhotographer #d3300 #MayaRoseBird #MayaRoseBirdArts

|f/8|1/200|ISO 500|Sony A7|Zeiss Distagon 28mm f/2.8|
Good evening everyone! Hope everybody is having a wonderful summer. Sorry for the lack of new content recently. I've been traveling for the past couple of weeks up north in Washington DC visiting family and shot a couple of events there, so just today I was able to sit down and start editing.
I know all of you have been wanting to see some shots from my new Sony A7, so I thought I'd share this shot I took in the DC airport on my way to the metro with my new Zeiss Distagon 28mm f/2.8. I am absolutely in love with this lens, it's by far the sharpest I've ever experienced and definitely the sharpest lens I own. The micro contrast is stunning and aberrations almost non existent. It now stays on my A7 99% of the time. At 2.8 the bokeh smooth and creamy for a wide angle which makes it wonderful for shooting detail shots. However, once stopped up to f/5.6 or f/8 it really shines. I can't wait to use it for landscape in Maine in just a few days!
Speaking of travel plans, I'd love to hear what you are doing for the summer! Let me know down in the comments. Today I'm off to Boston and then heading up to Maine for a couple weeks to do some hardcore landscape shooting, which should be awesome. Then on the 17th I'm traveling to the Berkshires to shoot a yoga and music festival for the weekend. After that I'm visiting family in Maine and flying back to Florida for a couple days after which I go to Washington DC to shoot a wedding.

Have a wonderful day/evening everybody! I promise I'll post more this weekend.

Good evening everyone!
Hope all American friends had a wonderful July 4th!
Me and my family went downtown to see the fireworks which were great as always! What did you do to celebrate? Let me know in the comments.  I know this is taken with the D3300, but it’s been SO hot all week and I haven’t gotten out to shoot much this week.
Here’s a shot that I took of my sweet friend @jaijagdeesh at Sat Nam Fest West put on my the amazing team at @spiritvoyage that I had the honor to shoot this past April in Joshua Tree, CA. Jai is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She also in an absolutely incredible songstress! Go check her out on iTunes.
Have an awesome week everybody!
I wanted to take a a brief moment to promote an account dedicated to sharing work of young photographers that my friends @kylewolfe @nickpetrides and @oneofakyndimages been working on. They created @youthimages as a way to help young photographers grow their following and connect with a community of other photographers. If you are interested and are under 21, or are older and simply want to be inspired by some absolutely amazing artist, please follow the account. Thank you so much!

|f/6.3|1/40|ISO250|Sony A7|Minolta 50mm f/1.4 DM| Good evening everyone! Hope everybody had great weekend. I was super surprised at the amount of attention my last post got! It was my most liked post ever, so thank you all so much!
I have absolutely been loving my A7! Though manual focus definitely takes some getting used to. If you have any suggestion or tips feel free to comment down below.
I have been doing lots of architecture and abstracts, mainly because St. Augustine severely lacks cool landscapes. However, I did find an awesome view point of a bridge that I can’t wait to shoot very soon. Have a great week everyone!

Good evening everyone!
So after more then a month of being without a camera, my new gear came in yesterday! I have decided to jump into the realm of mirrorless with a @sonyalpha A7. Thanks for all help and suggestions @tonynorthrup and @kylewolfe_. As for lenses, I picked up an old Minolta 50mm f/1.4 DM from @kehcamera. Everyone I talked to there is super nice and extremely helpful. I got my camera body from a great seller on the Fred Miranda Forum. He was extremely kind and included a Canon 50mm f/1.4 FD and a Fotodiox adapter. It's super awesome and has been on my camera all day. If you are looking for used gear, I highly encourage you to check the forum out at fredmiranda.com.
I’ve been using the setup for the past couple of days and absolutely love it. Feel free to comment down below about what you think. If you have any suggestions for an awesome bag, let me know. Thanks and have a great week.

Haven’t done much this week. I’m finishing up my final exams and then i’m free!! Looking forward to doing lots of photography while I’m in Maine this August. It’s been unbearably hot all this last week (around 100 degrees), so I’ve been going to the beach early in the mornings and staying inside during the day.
What are your plans the summer and what cool places do you hope to visit? I want to go to Iceland :)
Here’s the shot I submitted to last weeks #TCLive that unfortunately didn’t make it though. If you haven’t already, go check out @chelseanorthrup_ and @tonynorthrup’s awesome channel on youtube. They have great content and are such amazing teachers!

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend!
Two more weeks of cameralessness, hopefully! Is that even a word? I don't know, all I know is I'm super happy and I can't wait to get my new gear! Shh! To all the gear nerds out there, I am not going to tell you what I'm getting until it actually arrives, so hold onto your hats.
Hint: It's small, black and full frame.
Anyway, Here's a shot that I found deep in the hard drive from my trip to Joshua Tree, CA. I've been really having a hard time trying to find content to post, but I love the clouds in this shot and transition from gold to blue. Let me know what you think!

Ugh! I am really having a hard time not having a camera in my hands constantly! I guess I'll have to do more painting :-) Since I don't have very powerful ND filters, I'm kinda limited to what I can do once the sun comes up and everything gets bright. I completely overexposed this shot, so I had to do a bit of Photoshop/Lightroom magic to recover everything, but I think it turned out ok. Still not my best shot though. Anyway, Happy #Tuesday everyone!

I somehow ended up with a 5DSR, a 400mm f/4 and a gorgeous Kestrel for the day!
