Earlier last year I attended Marketing Nation presented by Marketo. I had a full schedule with my team, but I was able to sneak out on the first morning of the conference. I got an Uber and went exploring. I hiked all over the the Golden Gate Bridge. I was not able to walk across the bridge but I got some cool photos.
Catching a great sunrise in San Diego is not to difficult, we have amazing days. My good friend and long time mentor/partner Neil Brouillette and I got up extra early to shoot and record the San Diego sunrise at Spanish Landing and Harbor Island, both locations by the airport. I am obsessed with timelapse so I would set up my GoPro Hero 4 and capture the sunrise behind downtown San Diego. Neil is working on Panramic HDR's and testing how his equipment handles low light. It is always great to go out and work on the craft. Here is what I caught!

It has been a great start to the year! Yesterday I was out before dawn shooting and filming the sunrise in San Diego. I was at Spanish Landing by the airport with long time friend Neil Brouillette using my GoPro, Canon and even broke out my IPAD. It is so interesting to see the differences in quality and range. I was able to capture a timelapse of the sunrise with the GoPro that I'll be posting soon.
I've already earned some frequent flyer miles, I visited Atlanta for Drupal training and a week later I was in Chicago reviewing a tradeshow booth I helped create. I can't say I miss the snow! I walked the show to do a competitive analysis and I was impressed by some of the larger manufactures but there were many booths that lacked design and missed the opportunity for branding. We revamped the way we showcased the products and gave a modern twist in how we showed plumbing behind the wall.
I recorded a Facebook Live for AMA San Diego Content Marketing Special Interest Group. Frank Cowell of Elevator was the moderator and there was so much knowledge shared by the group. I picked up a couple of tips. It was fun to learn and network. The AMA San Diego is a great group!
Whew! I plan on staying in San Diego for a bit, keep my feet on the ground and start building campaigns. I get my media calendar for the year next week so time to enter creator mode!
Last year I attended Photoshop World and it was a really cool event. I learned a handful of new techniques and it also showed me I know alot more than I thought. It reinforced what I already knew. Since I had my camera, I decided I would take photos of the typography around me. Here are a couple of that really caught my eye. The inner geek got the best of me.
No trip is complete without Batman!
Last weekend I went out with Neil Brouillette, took my Canon Rebel and GoPro out, drove over the Coronado Bridge and shot some footage capturing the sunrise of down town San Diego. Here are some of the photos and videos I took.

I used the Panoramic tool in Photoshop but still needed to mask and make adjustments to the image.
I was incredible to see the sky light up and dance as the sun rose. I shot with the Canon. Below are more of my shots.

I Love, LOVE MY GoPro. I love how it bends time and space. I allows me to really experiment with angles and lines, bending the horizon to my will. Well at least that's how it feels. I am fascinated with the timelapse 4K features. It's really fun! Below is some more of my work.
