In 2018, I was out in Death Valley waiting for the sun to rise, looking around for an interesting shot, when this couple walked into the area that I was going to shoot. I couldn't get mad at them for it; it's a wide-open desert, and frankly, it's wasn't much of a shot. They just stood in the frame holding hands, and I thought to myself, "it's sort of a cool pic now that they are in it." so I took a few frames.

When they walked back toward me, I told them that I got this cute-ish photo of them. I showed them the pic and explained that if they wanted it, I'd gladly email it to them. (after all, it's not like they hired me to shoot it) The wife (assuming it was his wife) was excited and started to give me her email. The husband cut her off and just asked for my card. The vibe that I got from the guy was that I just asked them if they wanted to extend their car's warranty. He took my card, folded it in half, and walked back to the parking lot with his wife. I thought to myself, "what a dick, I should delete that pic right now."

Months later, the guy did reach out and asked if I remembered who they were. Instead of saying anything back, I just sent over the JPG. In a follow-up email, the guy explained that he was now living overseas and that the photo I took captured one of his final days living in the states. In fact, my photo captured the very last sunrise he saw in the US. Lastly, he did apologize for being a little "off-putting". He explained that he was a little emotional that morning and didn't expect to talk to anyone.

I told him, “it’s fine and then sold him a new warrantee for his car. Sucker!!! I am joking of course, but it just goes to show, don't change who you are even if someone is a dick.... they might have a reason that has nothing to do with you. 🤓

Walkout into the desert during a new moon, and you will see more stars than you have ever seen. I remember the first time I ever saw the Milky Way with my own eyes, and I was well into my 30’s when I did. Unless there is another catastrophic blackout, no one will ever see the Milky Way in NYC… but wouldn’t it be cool if we could?

When I was done swigging a flaming log around, I decided to open up the lens, increase the time and ISO to capture an additional shot of the Milky Way. I forgot I even shot this until I looked back into my archives for an Earth Day pic a few days ago. I layered both images in PS and this is how they came out.

Happy Earth Day!!
I find it a bit odd that we have to designate a day to remind ourselves that we have to take care of this little rock that we are all traveling through space on... yet here we are. 😅

“The Milky Way” shot one year ago today in the Black Rock Desert, NV.

The Throgs Neck at sunrise.

The name of "Throgs Neck" in the bridge's name derives from John Throckmorton, who first settled Throggs Neck. The traditionally correct spelling is with two "g"s. Robert Moses—chairman of the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority, which built the bridge—likely chose the variant with one "g" because it was easier to spell. I'm a horrible speller so that fact makes me likes that bridge a little bit more.

Supposedly the island got its name from the practice of settlers of Sands Point disposing of slaves by chaining them to the rocks at low tied. If you think about what is involved in doing that, it's doesn't seem very likely. It's more likely to have gotten its name from the British Admiralty, who named it Executioner's Rocks because of the number of ships the crashed into it.

I have heard it now managed by Historically significant structures Inc., and for a fee, you can sleep on it overnight with a few of your buddies. Before you think that's a good idea, to have a sleepover party, you might want to drive up to it and smell the air around it. Besides being a lighthouse, it's the only bird portapotty in the area, and it's only serviced when it rains. Sleep tight.

Yosemite's "FireRiver" is an event when car headlights illuminate the evening fog in such a way where it makes the mist glow as if it's a river of fire … hence the name. Thousands of people now visit Yosemite each year to photograph or watch the "FireFalls,' and after it's over, while they all leave in a huge rush to their hotels, this phenomenon appears. If you want to shoot this event, keep in mind that it only occurs for a few weeks in February, conditions need to be right, and you only have a short time to capture it. #osullivanstudios ...

Horsetail Fall, El Capitan, Yosemite.

After two days of waiting, I finally got one of my bucket list shots of Yosemite's "File Fall." It was raining the day I got this shot, so I didn't expect to see anything. If you look at the previous day's attempt, you will see what the EL Capitan looks like on a typical cloudy day.

Yosemite's "Firefall" is an event when the sun hit's Yosemite's Horsetail falls in such a way where it makes the waterfall glow as if it's lava or somehow on fire … hence the name. Thousands of people now visit Yosemite each year to photograph or watch this event that happens for only a few minutes before each sunset for only a few days in February.

Bow Bridge in central park.
There are normally two black posts in front of the bridge to prevent cars from driving over it, but I felt that they had to go. Thanks, Photoshop.

The Must-Have Shots Every Time I Start An Aerial Shoot. While looking back on several past projects, I can't emphasize enough the importance of capturing specific types of shots every time I start a shoot. I explain what some of those shots are and provide a few examples in the video. #aerialcinematography #aerialvideography #dji #inspire2 ...
