I met Marc over at the Miami boat show in 2010. He was selling his artwork at one of the levels there at the show. I was just walking around and when I came to his booth I had to stop. The stuff he had up was just phenomenal. You know the shots I wish I would have taken. I was a bit jealous and didn’t have a problem saying it. Marc just didn’t get lucky every once in a while he continues to do great work on a consistent basis. You know you’re good when you have an entire room at the IGFA showing your work.
To top it off, the guy couldn’t be any nicer. He talked to me and David while we were oohing over his work for a bit. We asked questions and he would gladly answer them. Many photographers I know seems to be threaten when I ask questions but Marc didn’t have any issues with it at all.
Check his website / Blog out he does some awesome work.
In this video Marc gets attack by a pack of sharks… one of my worst fears when I’m out there swimming in the deep blue. You know, I jump in and there’s a 15′ Mako looking at me. Yikes!
As you guys probably know Sebile lures has been very cool with us at Saltyshores. I was kind of surprised to learn that a couple days a go when I read that Pure fishing bought Sebile lures. Since I can’t even think of a hard plastic lure that Pure fishing makes , this is probably a good move if they wish it be a dominant force in the hard plastic lure market. Sebile started in 2006 and has sold millions of lures all over the world. Patrick Sebile’s work-a-holic attitude has paid off well. Congrats Patrick you did great.
That being said hopefully Saltyshores will continue to get support from Sebile and perhaps added support form the rest of the brands.
Columbia, SC — Pure Fishing, Inc., a leading global provider of fishing tackle and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jarden Corporation, today announced that it has acquired substantially all of the assets of the Sebile fishing lure business from Sebile International SA and its subsidiaries, a global supplier of fresh and saltwater fishing lures marketed under the Sebile® brand name.
Last week I sold my Canon 7D and used the cash to buy the Nikon D7000. I use all Nikon gear, until I got interested in shooting video with a DSLR. For videos, Canon was just way ahead of Nikon in the video category the last couple years.
I did not have the lens to use with Canon so I was limited in many ways. Finally, the last couple months Nikon came out with the D7000. This pretty much have all the features as the D300s(my main camera) but with much better video. The video is now 1080 instead 720 and has manual mode which is very important if you are serious about using it for good video.
It’s cheaper than the D300s, more megapixel and almost as fast. It is basically a camera between the D90 and D300s. It is a good upgrade for D90 users. However if you have a D300s and do not need the video I wouldn’t run out and get one. I would wait for the D400,500,600 or whatever they come out with to get your cash.
Anyways, here is the first video I shot with it yesterday. These are raw clips with out any edits so you can see what the footage looks like right off the camera. The videos were shot in manual mode using iso 100 to 1000. I used the 105mm macro lens so you will not see any wide angle shots. It was raining all day so not much to shoot really so I concentrated on rain drops.
This is the video but if you are interested in the stills Here are the stills I shot with same set up.
