I could go on and on about how defective the administration for sports is at the Anchorage School District (ASD), and how worthless the Alaska Scholastic Activities Association (ASAA) are from my point of view, but I really do not have the time or energy to write a negative book like that, and I do [...]
Sigma Corporation of USA sent me one of their Optical Stabilizer versions of their 70-200mm 2.8 DG HSM to review for this site and for the Fred Miranda website. Let me start off by saying, I am not a pixel peeper. I typically do not pull down an image and zoom in to 100% [...]

Click the gallery bellow to be taken see and purchase all of the photos in the [...]
ThinkTankPhoto Airport Antidote I really need to apologize Doug Murdoch and Brian Erwin at ThinkTankPhoto. I was sent this bag by ThinkTankPhoto to review this bag years ago for www.fredmiranda.com, but right after they sent the bag to me, my mom went into the hospital for her heart surgery, and with her recovery, it took [...]
This review is long overdue. I originally did a small review on Fred Miranda’s Digital Darkroom back in 2006 right after I got this lens originally. I had shot a volleyball game only with it, and I liked the lens. Now, 6 years later, I have shot a lot more. This lens has been used to [...]
I think this might be my first tip or tutorial for 2012….and it is August. Anyway, I shot the Arvada West girls softball team against Boulder yesterday and near the end of the game I played around with some slow shutter speed shots of the Arvada West pitcher. Here is a little tutorial and a [...]
Well, after arriving in Denver, I have not done much but look for a car and house. Looks like I have found a car that I will get tomorrow, but we are still looking for a house. And of course while I was busy with the home/car search, my website got hacked. I believe it [...]
I admit, I have known this for sometime, but decided only to tell a few people to start off. I wanted to wait for the basketball banquets to officially make the announcement. I missed the girls banquet (no one told me when it was), but at tonights Boy’s Basketball Banquet at Eagle River, it became [...]
I am considering putting together a workshop for after high school football season is over. If there is interest in coming to it, please let me know. My idea for this first workshop would be something on the order of – “Introduction to Digital Photography” I am thinking about a 3 hour workshop, with it [...]
So, I picked up a piece of equipment that I am pretty excited about using. Not a camera, or a lens. A battery. But not just any battery. A Paul Buff Vagabond Mini battery. This battery is going to change the way I shoot senior portraits and location portraits. So, it is a battery, big [...]

So last week I got an email from Grover Sanschagrin over at Photoshelter where I host my media and senior photos. Grover, one of Photoshelter’s founders, and a member of the SportsShooter higher ups was writing a blog post on the 8 Best Business Practices for Event Photographers and he wanted my input. So, I [...]
So, Sandisk, the best compact flash card maker (in my opinion), is running a contest. The winner of the contest becomes a member of the Extreme Team for one year. The SanDisk Extreme Team is a group of professional photographers whose vision is as uncompromising as their equipment. I would love to become a member [...]
Last Thanksgiving I shot the Great Alaska Shootout for Icon SMI. They had asked me to shoot it, and I did, and kind of forgot about it. Not the games, but working with a wire service, after you shoot, edit, caption and FTP, you are on to the next thing. Over 4 days, 6 teams, [...]
I really wanted to post these sooner, but I got side tracked with other projects but better late than never. For high school sports, I work with the booster clubs to do special posters for the seniors that are either presented to them at senior night or at the end of season banquet. The spring [...]

Most of us realize that the recent problems with the economy have effected almost every part of our daily lives, and it did not do anything to help the already troubled newspaper business. I have seen for quite some time the failing of newspapers, magazines and print media. From newspapers either cutting back on staff [...]
The photographer minds at Think Tank Photo are coming out with a new bag that looks fabulous. No, their bags are not cheap, but they are by far the best photographer bags and accessories you can find. Find out more information on their new bag at Rob Galbraith DPI and check out the other gear [...]
For the past 6 years a majority of my photo business has been youth sports, with local little leagues, rec leagues, and high schools. This business has been handled through www.digital-eos.com But a lot of my local customers were unaware that I did anything beyond youth sports. They are surprised to see me sitting baseline [...]
