ICE CAVE Shoot using Just 1 Light in the Swiss Alps….new video released! You can check it out now by clicking the link in my bio!

This was a really fun and COLD shoot with @em.explores as we traveled into Switzerland for a few days after shooting a wedding in Germany.

We traveled to the Rhone Glacier which has an ice cave carved into it that allows people to go INSIDE of a glacier.

This was a minimalist shoot because the weather was very cold and I was using my Assistant as a model, so no chance on a big set up. Used just a single @rotolight Neo 2 with the @sonyalpha A7Riii and a few lenses. No modifier for the light other than diffusion filters on front.

And all the gear survived! Hope you enjoy it and it helps you all out there…thanks for watching!

Settings: Sony A7riii, 1/60 sec, f/2.8, 35mm at ISO 400. Rotolight Neo 2 with 3 stops of diffusion.

Thank you Gary and Chicago!! What a great two days with some amazing people!

We explored some epic locations, shared so many lessons on life and also photography.

We learned and taught so much about lighting, posing, composition, and tackling your weak points…

The McDonald’s SCAM- earlier this week in Detroit we were victims to a huge scam going on at the Detroit McDonald’s where they are towing cars without notice and charging exorbitant fees. This is a clear cut case of fraud. YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS VIDEO AND SHARE:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALgw6jc3dbg&t=11s

We went back to investigate it all the following day and what happened was off the charts. They tried to not only tow us again but tried to tow a lady with disabilities who had a baby.

The only way these predatory practices are stopped is by naming and shaming. Pressure needs to be put on AAA, McDonald’s and Break Through Towing…this is criminal.

Never giving up- losing weight and getting in shape is the hardest journey I’ve ever undertaken. There are some things in life that come to me pretty easily. I’ve never struggled too much to create things…but getting my body where I want it to be due to genetics and physical disabilities is by far my Kryptonite.

But I tell all of you to never give up…and they are words that I truly live by. Never give up on your dreams my friends…NEVER.

I was able to fit in a workout tonight on the road from Detroit down to Louisville. It was physically painful, but mentally and emotionally gratifying.

Go get it Fedora Nation…

Mirrorless Reinvented? Is this a new beginning for Nikon or is it the Beginning of the End? Nikon released two new Z mount cameras to the world this week. Check out my video where I discuss these new cameras, where that leaves Sony, and how the clock is ticking for Canon. Click the link in the bio to watch it now!

As photographers we should all want a thriving, healthy competitive marketplace where all the manufacturers are bringing us great, relevant options…my hope is that all manufactures can do that and even more importantly, LISTEN to their photographers…

Those who don’t could find themselves on the wrong side of the business viability equation.

I hope you enjoy the video…:)

Shooting WIDE OPEN- so as I go through some of the older pics in my catalog that have yet to be edited….I found this one of the amazing Maddi Dewalt that we took at my workshop last year in Hawaii.

This is with the A7Riii using the Canon 50mm f/1.0 lens and the Metabones Mark 4 Adapter. Natural Light.

This lens is heavy, it doesn’t focus very well, it’s expensive and not very sharp….BUT, it does produce a pretty interesting result doesn’t it?

That’s one of the things I love most about teaching workshops. So many different photographers come together and we usually find some pretty unique gear that we get to share and test out. It’s one of the reasons I love doing workshops. Hanging out with fellow photographers is truly FUN.

If you’d like to join me on one of mine, here’s a list of locations below:

Capturing Who Matter the Most- I’m a bit behind on my editing….so today I came across my pics from the Fourth of July with my family….

I positioned the camera purposely so I captured my three sons watching the fireworks. The picture of the fireworks without the boys is meaningless. With them, it’s everything.

Mom and Dad are both in the back watching the boys enjoy the festivities….that’s my empty seat next to my sons…:)

Moments like these make being a photographer so special. Because if you know how to take a pic or two, you are able to capture and preserve precious family moments FOREVER….

Settings: Sony A7iii, 4 sec at f/4, 12mm at ISO 200. Single capture, no composite.

Learning the Art of Diffusing Light- this image was taken at my workshop in San Francisco of the wild child Emily….we were at the Palace of Fine Arts and used a simple diffuser above head to create gorgeous natural lighting.

Many times using ambient light from Mother Nature isn’t enough. Hollywood certainly doesn’t think so…and my contention is that we as still photographers should feel the same way.

Recent trends of shooting whatever and whenever you want is certainly easier to do….but there’s no disputing the fact that shooting in that regard delivers less than optimal results.

Don’t settle for mediocrity. Be More. Do More. And MAKE MONEY doing it….

Father Fixer- soooo, my boys are all going to a dance tonight and were mortified when they realized they waited too long to ask me to take them to the barber shop and by the time they did they were all closed…we even drove to two of them to check and beg…no luck.

So while driving home they asked me if I could give them haircuts like I did when they were little…

I laughed and said I didn’t even know if we still have clippers..

“Well, CVS has some Dad,” is the reply I got. So we swung by, picked some up, and I became a barber for a night…

They are actually pretty happy with their haircuts…and it was a special Father Son moment….now it’s off to the dance for these little lady killers!!!

CRAZY 840mm!! Ever wonder what a crop sensor camera using a full frame lens with a teleconverter could produce? Well, I used that combo to shoot the lunar eclipse in Cape Town, South Africa last month. Check out the video by clicking the link in the bio!

This was shot using the Sony A6500 with the 100-400 G Master lens using the Sony 1.4 Teleconverter. It’s a crazy combo that actually worked very well. It does drop the lens from a f5.6 to an f/8, but if you have light or the ability to shoot a longer exposure, it can work like a charm.

Hope you like it! Thanks in advance for taking the time to watch…:)

Humbled beyond belief- I am so blessed that I get to do this…

Humbled beyond belief- I am so blessed that I get to do this crazy thing called being a traveling photographer….it honestly just blows my mind.

I was accompanied on this trip by my new Assistant @em.explores who is just on another level. Amazing person, great model, and she’s something new to me for this position…she’s a photographer which is something I really wanted in my assistant. This trip was made so much better thanks to her and I can’t thank her enough.

It started off landing in Zurich and doing a workshop with a fantastic group of people. We saw men strip naked and go swimming while I was teaching posing. That’s a moment I’ll never forget lol.

It was then off to Prague which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We learned traffic laws are non existent there which made for a very fun driving experience 😂

From there it was on to Poland to visit Auschwitz which was humbling, sobering and life changing. I can’t wait to share that experience with all of you…

It was then back to Prague for an impromptu shoot in front of a water truck that was a blast.

We then scooted on down to Germany for an absolutely amazing wedding workshop at the Stettenfels Castle. Truly a fairy tale experience that you are all going to want to see!!

While driving in Germany I even found a company that named themselves SANTA MARIA GUADALUPE in my honor…I love the Germans!!

After that it was filming a video in Bavaria in front of the Neuschwanstein Castle where Emily got to eat a schnitzel lol.

We then ended the trek by visiting the alps and shooting in a real massive ice cave that’s part of a glacier…can you say BUCKET LIST???

Just unreal. All told nearly 3,500 kilometers put on the BMW rental.

So many great memories, great friends, and content that I can’t wait to share.

Last but not least an enormous thanks to my family back home for supporting me and allowing me to provide for them in this way…it’s a dream come true.

Now it’s back home for awhile..:). I have a 4 day boot camp in Los Angeles at the end of this month and then in September it’s Detroit, Chicago, Kentucky, and then off to Cologne for Fotokina!!

Photographing the Bride- we all know the groom is important, but a wedding day is really about the bride. One of the most favorite things for me to shoot are the bridal shots before the wedding when the bride is getting ready.

This is of the beautiful bride Miriam at my wedding in Germany last weekend..:)

In this awesome production shot taken by my Assistant @em.explores I’m using a macro lens to document the details in the bride’s dress and jewelry. This is after I did the wide angle shots similar to what was captured in this production image…

Pics and videos to come….

Making the Most of an Impromptu Moment in Prague – the True Essence of Photography…new video being released in 3 hours!!!

www.youtube.com/jasonlanierpros

Join me for an all new video shot in the Prague, Czech Republic where we scrapped a whole video that we had planned and did a shoot with a truck spraying mist for relief from the heat on the public in the town square.

This was truly a blast to shoot and it captures the true essence of photography. Creating something out of nothing and being prepared for anything. I truly hope you like it!

A huge thanks to my assistant @em.explores for doing such a great job modeling on this shoot….she’s a photographer but you’d think she’s a model with how well she does in front of the camera…:)

Thanks in advance for watching!

Photographing Auschwitz- today was a very special day as a photographer as I got to visit the Auschwitz Birkenau Concentration Camp in Poland.

It’s so surreal to be in a place that has so many stories and is a place that you’ve watched in movies, documentaries, and seen online. I think it’s so fitting that these places still are alive and preserved to remind us of what we’ve done as humans in the past and hopefully will never repeat.

This image was taken by a very talented photographer named Emily Rinaldo who will be working with me as my assistant.

I had an extra day to go and shoot something before heading to Germany for my REAL Wedding Workshop and getting to shoot this place was an honor. I love history and being in these places is just unreal…it’s one of the main reasons why I love photography…..

Thanks again to @em.explores for the awesome shot!

Teaching my sons how to shop for cologne…this was yesterday at Macy’s and teaching the process testing the bottles and finding the perfect one for them was honestly one of those moments as a Dad that I’ll never forget.

I love them more than anything and being a Dad means far more to me than anything I’ll ever accomplish otherwise. My Dad meant everything to me…and I can only hope to instill a love of Fatherhood in my sons as well so they can become great Dads in their own right…

BE A DAD. BE PRESENT. LOVE THEM. And always remember they come first…

I recorded video of some of it as well. Not to share anywhere…but just for me…so when I’m old and Grey I can relive this moment…
