Marcoccia Photography – Sonora, Ca.

http://marcoccia.photography  – Sonora, Ca.

about  bodey marcoccia – (pronounced: BOH-dee mar-KOH-chuh)

Since receiving my first DSLR camera in 2008, I’ve consistently enjoyed the persuit of photography. I live near Sonora, California with my wife and two sons.

I love landscape photography. Whether it’s Pacific beaches, Scottish plains, Eastern Sierra mountains, or any other number of breathtaking locations I’ve had the fortune of visiting, I always try to capture the one shot that can make someone else feel like they’re right there with me.

I’ve spent the last few years transitioning and building my skills as a portrait photographer, and I’d be glad to work with you to create printed memories that will last a lifetime.

Smartphone Cameras – Gold Country Photography

Smartphone cameras are getting better and better and the thing about a smartphone camera is,..it’s always with you and available when something spectacular happens in front of you.

My wife, Arlene took these two shots just two days ago as she was leaving work with her Samsung S5.

Although these were edited with Lightroom on a computer and their file size being pretty small, she still got the shot!

Smartphones are also quite good at editing, maybe even better than a computer editor with all of the specialized apps. Here is a list of editing apps from CNET.com

License to Explore~ Winter Finally Arrives in the Gold Country! By Steph Gabler

Steph Gabler Photography

Just when I was resigned to the fact that we were going to go from Fall to Spring here in the Gold Country, Winter arrived with a BANG!  14″ of beautiful, white snow arrived overnight and into the morning, so of course I grabbed my camera and went out to explore.

Camino, CA is probably better known  as Apple Hill, and is absolutely gorgeous any time of the year. However, on those fairly rare occasions that it is covered in snow… it’s simply magical.

I started my trip down Carson Rd,  at the bottom of “downtown” Camino.  I saw this magical scene just minutes after getting off the freeway…

 

This Vineyard is getting a nice winter blanket of snow.  As I slowly made my way down the hill (not everyone was practicing safe snow driving) I saw my next photo opportunity… at the “famous” High Hill Ranch. High Hill is the largest and most popular farm in Apple Hill.  With snow covering the apple Orchard, I was captivated by what was before me.

Redinger Lake by Janet Martinez Photography

Janet Martinez Photography

I drove into the mountains today, above Redinger Lake, to take a look at the snow in our area. It was gorgeous but hazy. The haze was from the numerous burn piles as the Forest Service took advantage of the weather. This old tree just caught my attention as it frames the view of Redinger Lake. I’m a sucker for old oak trees! Just think of what they have endured over the years! Sometimes I feel old until I think about these trees, twisted and gnarled but still standing!

License to Explore~ Cameron Park Lake, CA By Steph Gabler

License to Explore

Life  has kept me and my camera separated, until today. My Valentines Day morning was spent with my love, my camera. Having a bit of “free” time to jump in the car with my camera was something that I have looked forward to for weeks!

I set my sites on Cameron Park Lake, in the center of Cameron Park, El Dorado County. During the “warm” months, there is a fee to get into the lake, but this time of year, it’s FREE!! 🙂

Cameron Park Lake

The trail around the lake is just over a  mile long, level, and an easy walk. I cannot begin to name all of the different birds on this lake! However, today I had my sites set on the swans Continue reading “License to Explore~ Cameron Park Lake, CA By Steph Gabler”

“Every Exit up I-80” part II – Gold Run/Alta-Bonnynook – Gold Country Photography – Grass Valley, Ca

Gold Country Photography

In our initial episode Every Exit up I-80, issue one I left Colfax heading east and only made it as far as Dutch Flat but I had a great time there.

In this episode, I start the journey at Exit 143 Gold Run, went up to Exit 146 Alta Bonnynook Rd. and ended at Exit 148b Baxter.

So, let’s get started.

Heading east on Interstate 80 you often miss Exit 143 Gold Run, (especially if you are driving up from the Bay Area) because just past the Gold Run exit is the first “Rest Stop” on your way up the grade but I do not need the rest stop, at least not yet.

(the photo above is coming back west as I forgot to take this pic on the way up)

Stopping at the end of the exit, I see a uniquely old styled building off to the right.  Turns out to be a sports bar and grill  Mountain Springs Hitch n Post


As I am taking this shot, I look back across the road to see the Gold Run historical marker almost hidden behind a cyclone fence next to the freeway. Continue reading ““Every Exit up I-80” part II – Gold Run/Alta-Bonnynook – Gold Country Photography – Grass Valley, Ca”
