You know, it struck me just the other day that while I profess to make myself available as a photographer, I don?t often talk about photography in my business blog. Perhaps that has something to do with where the real money is made but it doesn?t necessarily reflect where my real passion is.
David Burnett was one of my early photographic heroes (along with Weegee). I remember following his exploits and trying to learn from his photos back in the mid ?80s when I was working at the Daily Sun/Post (or at least it was a daily back then). I was quite pleased to stumble not only upon his blog called ?We?re Just Sayin?, but also the video below. I also greatly enjoyed his post entitled ?History In The Buffer? that was fabulous.
Here is a video that he shot of his experience at the 2008 Olympics. Or more appropriately, ?The Olypmpics You Didn?t See?
At Over The Top and Exhibit A Communications, I've programmed solutions for Google as well as at least one other company that was later acquired by Google.
I've been CTO of an Internet SaaS company and spent my time pretty evenly between guiding the future technical strategy of the company, architecting software solutions for my dev teams, designing and running a data center to service our clients world-wide as well as being a technical evangalist/sales engineer to our media clients large and small.
I've also been Chief Photographer of the Daily Sun/Post newspaper back when it was a 5-day a week daily newspaper.
I also spent a great many years as a beach lifeguardfor the City of San Clemente as well as Jr. Lifeguard instructor and then as it's program coordinator.
