Let’s get to know each other on Instagram

Who doesn’t like a good list. Below are 3 reasons why we should connect on Instagram? 

1. I post similar yet slightly different content on my Instagram posts. 

2. I typically post more often on Instagram than I do on the blog. 

3. I post faster than blog.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

Hey World, meet my new camera the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II. Ok you can call me an Olympus fanboy if you want but I really enjoy their mirrorless cameras. I feel like mirrorless camera technology is catching up to “pro” and will soon be the standard of professional cameras. So why did I up grade from my last OM-D? There are too many to reasons to say but I’ve tried to list some of my major highlights below.

Quick Highlights

  • Wifi image transfer
  • Wireless/Mobile phone Shooting
  • Headphone input attachment
  • 5 axis image stabilization
  • Rotating and tilting screen

    AllSaints/ Conroy leather biker jacket

    I like versatility of Leather Jackets. You can dress up your leather with a button down shirt and tie, or like is this example above, dress down with a plain shirt. Leather jackets can be a pricey but I’d like to think of them as an investment. These jackets almost never go out of style so you can wear them for years to come.

    Moment Lens Review (60mm)

    Moment Lens Review (60mm)

    As travel blogger I always tussle back and forth over image quality versus convenience. Sometime carrying around a DSLR or even a Mirco 4/3 camera just isn’t conducive for those quick snaps. For this review I decided to try the 60 mm Telephoto attachable lens from Moment.  The 60mm is used to pull subjects closer and provides excellent image quality.

    After testing, I found the lens to be worthwhile.  I do have some thoughts on how Moment it can improve it. Below I have broken down some pros and cons of this well crafted lens. The code “firstmoment” will give you 15% discount on all purchases.

    I’ve been a little busy lately but I did have some time to take some levitation photos at Kerry Park. I’m really starting to like this style of photography. It’s simple but also makes a big impact.

    Portland is Happening Now

    #PDXNOW BEER

    Portland is Happening Now

    Around this time last year I went on an a epic adventure through Portland, Oregon courtesy of Travel Portland and the “Portland is Happening Now” campaign. The “Portland is Happening Now” campaign highlights tourism to Portland during the winter months.

    This year Travel Portland is not only highlighting great deals around the Portland area, they’re also partnering with the Base Camp Brewing company. 10 Portland breweries have paired up to create 10 different #PDXNOW brews. Kind of a random fact but did you know Portland currently has the most breweries of any city in the world? It surprised me when I found out. Travel Portland sent me one of their beers (Bridge Builder) to try. I’m interested to see what it taste like. Bottoms up!

    Menswear: Recess Wallet

    While in San Francisco I met up with the good people at Recess. Recess gave me two of their ultra thin wallets for review. I found out these wallets to be perfect for traveling and very high quality. I especially like the color selections and softness.

    These high end wallets are typically priced at 180$ to 96$ but the code “asmith” will get you 20% percent off.
