Ready for his close up- nit many people would try shooting a wild African Elephant at 105mm at f/1.4…but hey, why not??

This was shot with the Sony A7Riii using the Sigma 105mm lens. You have to be careful when being this close to these huge beasts as they are very unpredictable and can be quite hostile…but they really are the modern day dinosaurs…just amazing.

I’m having an amazing time here in Kruger!

Sunsets in Satara- I really can’t wait to edit this one…this was yesterday right as the sun was setting while rain clouds were moving in.

I found this tree and positioned my car so I could place it in front of the setting sun…shooting cropped in using the 100-400 G Master on the Sony A9….day 1 was epic, I truly can’t wait for today to begin!!!

Safari Round 2- it was a dream come true the first time I went 6 years ago…it’s surreal I get to do it again…

I even brought my old iPod from six years ago that had all my favorite @philhendrie show stuff on there that is hilarious.

I listened to it last time while shooting the wildlife and I’m gonna do the same this time around.

Safari for 11 days and then events in Johannesburg and Cape Town. For those who can come out to say hello…thank you in advance. I very much look forward to meeting all of you soon!

Luggage Ready- I think my favorite thing about the @rotolight Explorer Kit is that it’s three lights and three light stands that all fit very comfortably in my luggage. The kit has become my Go To for most of my Lighting needs. See the vegetable chips? Taking my diet with me to Africa..:). Do you think lions like vegetable chips???

For more info on the lights please visit www.jasonlanier.com/rotolight

Lol I can’t wait for silly people to lecture me about not feeding lions…lol. I’m just joking y’all!

How To Light a Wedding Reception- make sure to be on the lookout for an upcoming video from my REAL Wedding Workshop in Grand Cayman at the Ritz Carlton where I show you all how I use the Rotolight Neo 2 inside of the Westcott Halo to create beautiful soft and portable lighting that both illuminates as a continuous light and strobes when needed.

Never Say Anything Negatively To Yourself That you Should NOT…

Never Say Anything Negatively To Yourself That you Should NOT say to Anyone Else…..

I just had a conversation with my sons about the importance of not devaluing yourself. Many times we are very hard on ourselves. Many times we are TOO hard.

I’m a huge believer in Self Awareness and understanding where your weaknesses are and what you need to do to improve….

But calling yourself worthless, ugly, bad, dumb, unloved, etc has a debilitating effect on your soul. If you say it long and loud enough to yourself, you will indeed believe it.

Yes, you can actually kill your own soul with your words.

Conversely talking yourself into things can be the most potent weapon ever for your improvement. “You CAN do this.” “You do have value.” “BELIEVE in yourself,” are words that your soul needs to hear to believe.

So the next time you wanna destroy your own self worth remember….if it would be horrible for you to utter those words to someone else, you should never utter them to yourself….

Out here at Ronald Reagan park for a 4th of July celebration…fitting because that dude was a pretty awesome President…I listened to a speech he gave earlier today and loved how he spoke from the heart about freedom and how it’s something that all human beings deserve referencing our Declaration of Independence.

Playing in the park surrounded by white, brown, black people also playing alongside us from all over the world all celebrating today…it was pretty special.

We should all be free…and be good parents too..:)

What Does It Mean to Be Great? What Does It Mean to Leave a…

What Does It Mean to Be Great? What Does It Mean to Leave a Legacy?

Very few people in the world know the name of my Dad. His name was Joseph. He wasn’t famous, he didn’t lead what some would consider an adventurous life.

But to those who mattered. He was a Legend.

Being a Dad isn’t about being the strongest, smartest, or coolest guy on the planet. Being a Dad is about giving everything you have to and for your kids…even when they may not reciprocate or even care.

It’s about knowing what your family needs…even when they may not want it. It’s about taking the heat and keeping your cool. It’s about teaching boys to become men and teaching girls how they should expect to be treated by men. And for a man, there is no greater role or duty on earth.

I can honestly and unequivocally say that I would be lost without my Dad. He was my everything. He was who I aspire to be. He left a gentle, soft spoken example of how a man can love his family more than himself. Of how a man can sacrifice his own wants because more than anything, he wanted to be a Dad.

I would give anything for 1 more conversation with him. Just one more night. But he’s been gone now for 10 years and there isn’t a day that goes by…that I don’t think about him.

This man taught me work ethic, compassion, strength, humility and love. He was the best man I’ve ever known, and I can’t wait to one day see him again.

The strongest evidence of his legacy is in his children. He and my amazing Mom gave birth to 6 of us. 5 boys and 1 girl. I think what makes me so proud to call myself a Lanier is in knowing that all 5 men strive to be truly great Dads. And my sister made sure to marry a man who strives to do the same.

So on this Father’s Day just remember. Your kids may be close to you, or they may be far away. You may reach out to them and they may not reach back. Perhaps you’ve neglected some of your duties as a Dad and this day is hard for you.

Remember….It’s never too late to be a Dad. You can’t replace the days you’ve lost, but you can maximize the days ahead. You don’t have to be famous, you don’t have to be a rockstar to your kids. But if you give them your love, you

I just got done doing a 4 day bootcamp in DC and the feedback was so positive that I decided to add another location for this year in Los Angeles. I love spending this time with photographers and helping them achieve their goals and I can’t wait to see you all there!!

Oh, and this shot is of the amazing Alyssa Obrien…and demonstrates the lighting, posing, and education that takes place at my workshops.

I’ll see you all there..:)

Camera settings: Sony A7iii, 1/125 sec at f/1.4, 50mm at ISO 1000. Rotolight Aeos as my key light.
