Well, the day has finally arrived, sort of. Three years and three designers - the new site - www.sdmphotography.net - is ready. Although it still needs a few 'tweaks, it is live and presentable.
Although I will make changes and updates here, please visit the new site for the most current in what's going in my photography world.
The site not only features some fun stuff like slide shows and a blog page, which will feature pictures, brief updates and an occasional musing or two from me.
So please, stop on by for a visit and please, stay in touch.

Sorry there hasn't been much news here as of late folks. I've been busy, and busy with the new site. The new site just keeps running into problems, again and again. I'm on designer number 3, and having issues with this one as well. So while I try and prep pictures and keep currrent so they can go on the site, the older ones are getting up and so much of the infrastructure is still a mess.
Sorry, not meaning to vent, but that's where it's at right now. I'll post when the new site is done and do a big mailing. It's part of a larger marketing campaign including a new postcard in more.
Thanks for all your patience.

Giants played their final exhibition game at the newly named AT&T Park Sunday. Under gray skies and a light drizzle, a lineup that featured a combination of veterans and minor leaguers dropped the game to the Oakland A's 5-3.

BONDS IS BACK! FOR REAL!
Bonds returned to play at SBC Park Sept. 12 as if he never left. In his first trip to the plate, he had a protracted 11-pitch at bat against the Padres Adam Eaton before almost hitting career homer 704. It was ruled a ground rule double due to fan interference.
BONDS IS BACK!
After being sidelined the entire season, Barry Bonds is back and set to return to the Giants lineup tomorrow. The shots below are from the simulated game at SBC Park Sept. 8. Hope you enjoy. Best efforts will be put forth from this end to have shots of Bonds' return to baseball as soon as possible.
Please check back soon!

As we approach what would have been Jerry Garcia's 63rd birthday Aug. 1 and the 10th anniversary of his untimely death, I have to reflect, and excuse me for doing so in the first person, for it was he and the Grateful Dead and their music, that started my career.
When I started photographing the band in the late 1980s, I still thought I was going to be the great writer and my photography would always come 2nd. That all changed in early 1990 when I had my first picture published in Deadbase ? of Garcia at the LA Forum Dec. 1989.
My choice became clear and I changed gears quickly to try and make something of my newly renewed passion that had laid somewhat dormant since high school.
Since then, my career blossomed into shooting music beyond the Grateful Dead and inspired me to return to school and get my photojournalism degree.
Although I don?t shoot much music anymore, I will never forget my roots and what brought me here. Until I graduated, I considered the Grateful Dead my Alma Mater, and still consider it part of my early education.
If you were every fortunate enough to see them play and made any sort of connection, I imagine you?ll think of Garcia on and around these days that approach so quickly.
Please give your thanks, say a prayer or whatever comes naturally to honor the special memory of a very special man. However tortured a soul he was, he meant well and we owe him at least a few of our thoughts.
Below is a piece I created shortly after his death. Although the unique piece was for sale, I also gave complimentary copies to the Grateful Dead organization, those that helped me create and get it approved and have donated several to charity.
I held onto a few of the very limited edition of 300 prints for this very special anniversary. Please check the link below to learn more about and feel free to contact me for further info.
My apologies for bending your ear and thanks for reading.
