The Best Travel Camera for a Middle East Adventure

I recently received a message on facebook from a friend looking for advice on a travel camera. She wants to photograph her 4-week journey/adventure to the middle east to visit family, with a follow-up week at The Cochella Music and Arts Festival. To be completely honest I’m a tad jealous, but as a professional travel photographer I do have some pretty well tested thoughts and to help her (and possibly you) out in this matter.

Saying Goodbye to a 300 Year Old Friend

As far back as anyone can remember the massive Oak tree stood over the back of the home on my family’s farm in Lexington, South Carolina. This majestic tree filtered the morning light like none other I have ever seen, it shaded our family cookouts and fish fries during the summer, played host to many of my childhood fantasies of fighting villains, and many occasions drew my ire in the fall as it dropped an unprecedented amount of leaves that required my young arms to rake, as it did for countless generations before me.

Remembering Pearl Harbor at 75

Just one day after the Empire of Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, Franklin D. Roosevelt stood before a joint session of congress and delivered a speech on December 8, 1941 that would come to be one of the most infamous in our nation’s history. At the outset of that seven minute message to the nation President Roosevelt referred to December 7, 1941 as  “a date which will live in infamy.”  Today, December 7, 2016, 75-years later, those words bounce around my mind as I contemplate the sacrifice of the 2,403 killed and 1,178 wounded, Sailors, Marines and civilians.

The USS Arizona Memorial, at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and Marines killed on USS Arizona (BB-39) during the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Built in 1962, it straddles the sunken hull of the battleship without touching it and is visited by more than two million people annually. © Copyright 2016, Brett Flashnick – All Rights Reserved.

Product Photography Innovative Arms 2016 9mm Lineup

I had the opportunity to spend a few days in the studio during the fall of 2015 to produce some product photography of several new products being released by Innovative Arms (an Elgin, SC based designer and manufacturer of NFA firearms and silencers) at the 2016 SHOT Show®. Thankfully that wait is now over and we can share some of the images we created to help them launch and market their new products. Over the next few days as SHOT Show goes on we will share some of the product photos we created for the launch.

Today, lets take a look at their new 9SX 9mm silencer as well as their new Sig Sauer MPX Integral.
