I took a Nikon D4s into a fire

Its been a while since I shot inside a burn building (4 years ago when I had a D3). When my fire department decided to conduct a fire behavior familiarization, for our new volunteers. I took this chance to see if Nikon's D4s can handle the heat as well as the D3. It performed outstanding! 

The temp hovered around 400-600F, unfortunately the burn room was extremely small so I had to use my 14-24. The high ISO the D4s has worked in my favor since the only light source was the fire, with the occasional flashlight, There was no cosmetic damage, except it still smells like smoke! Now I just need a D5 with that insane ISO range!

The Deployment

The 6 months went by pretty fast. I came back in one piece, and I had fun documenting the great things the coalition forces are doing all over the middle east. I can say its been amazing to have the opportunity to visit countries I never thought I would step foot in, but i'm glad I'm home, nothing like having a bathroom in the same building your living in!

Bikes over Baghdad

A team of pro BMX bikers are touring the AOR. I had forgotten all about them coming to my base until I heard the music. So I ran to my office, grabbed my camera and took a shot at photographing BMX for the first time.
