welcome

industrial compsitionWelcome to Taylor Mahoney Photography. I hope to use this site as a forum to write about my photographic process, and a place to showcase my most recent work. Scroll down for my blog and recent stuff, or check out the tabs at the top of the page for my portfolio and other information. I would love to hear from you, let me know what you think. Enjoy…

Another Weekly Update

Another busy week down, another just beginning…Had the opportunity to shoot a few exceptional high school athletes, a great new local restaurant, some local flavor and more. Please click on an image to enter the slide show and see caption info for each image…

The Last Week? I think…

A weekly update for you my little droogies. Some stuff from the last week. Perhaps nothing earth shattering but it is what I did…I have been feeling better about my sports shots lately, I do after all shoot a lot of them. Click on an image to enter the slide show and see caption info.

Some More Newish Stuff

In trying to keep this blog idea rolling, here are some favorites from the past two weeks or so at the Daily Sun. Surprisingly there are quite a few sports shots here, humm. If I can get some prints scanned, I may share some personal stuff too…Please click on an image to enter the slide show and see caption info.

In other news, my Nikon D300s decided to start communicating with cpu enabled lenses again today, for no apparent reason…

The last three weeks or so

I really do want to try and get a post like this up each week, haven’t quite been able to yet, but I’m working on it…For your consideration, here are a few favorites from the past three weeks or so. Click on an image to enter the slide show and view caption info etc etc…Enjoy.

Photo-J Favorites One Year In

It has been quite a year…I started working as a staff photographer for the Arizona Daily Sun, Flagstaff’s local news paper, took over black and white printing operations for Hidden Light and did a lot of personal stuff in addition. Below is a slide show of about 30 of my favorite images taken while on assignment for the Sun during my first year as an official photojournalist. Some of these have been on this blog before, but perhaps that is for a reason, this is not a complete best-of-year, just best-of-year-at-the daily sun… Click on an image to enter the slide show and see caption info…

Some additional features and stuff

A few shots from the last month or so, everything from portrait, to feature and even some sports shots that I don’t hate…make sure to click on an image to enter the slideshow and show caption info.

A Few Fine Features

A selection of feature shots from the last month or so taken around Flagstaff…Enjoy.

Forest Thinning

In an attempt to keep the ball rolling, here is another slideshow from a recent assignment I shot for the Arizona Daily Sun…State and local crews are working on a few sizable forest thinning projects in the Flagstaff area. Some residents see trucks full of logs coming out of the forest and fear that  the thinning has gone too far and is more like a clear cut.

Unfortunately the article kind of spins it this way, which couldn’t be further from the truth. The thinning of sick, dead and over crowded Ponderosas is necessary for forest health and to help reduce the risk from wildfire. Our forests are far too dense from generations of mismanagement, a forest floor covered in pine needles is bad, there needs to be open space, grasses and flowers too.

Discovery Channel Telescope

I promise this blog isn’t dead, I have been quite busy working for the Arizona Daily Sun as well as printing at a traditional black and white darkroom, this has left the ol’ blog on the way back burner for a while…Hopefully this post will be the first of many as i attempt to reboot this site with new content and new ideas. Below are photos I took while on a tour of the Discovery Channel Telescope for an article at the Sun. This was a rare and exciting opportunity to tour this not typically open to the public site.

Changing of the Guard pt.2::Week One as a Canon Shooter…

_DSC0858

If you are just seeing this post, please read over the previous post Here…Ok now that we are all on the same page, Ze Going…

I have had the Canon 5dMkIII in my hands for about a week, and so far it is a very serious upgrade from my previous rig. That isn’t to say I don’t have some grievances with it, but let’s start with what is good before moving onto what I don’t like/understand. To save room on my home page, please hit the following link to read the rest of the story (sorry for somewhat poor image quality in this post, all were shot on an old D200 (a basically piece of shit camera)… Continue reading
