Ice Dancer – Photo Dissection

Katie and I went out for just a quick shoot. The snow was nice, but the sky was not all that impressive. We shot here and there, and then I noticed the icicles hanging down from the roof of the main building at the park we were at. There was a bench, which I jumped… Read More

Bryce Sunset – Photo Dissection

At the end of our Escalante trip, we skated through Bryce for the night. Cold, but beautiful! We were traveling on the edger of our seats, because we had blown a tire in Escalante, and we were traveling on a donut tire. No one had a replacement in our size in Escalante, or in Bryce…. Read More

Eyes of the Goblin

For me, part of the job is getting up at two am to be in place for dawn. Not that I LIKE getting up at 2. And in normal circumstances, it is pretty damn hard to get me up at two. But when I am going to an exotic and beautiful place, as I was… Read More

Winner in Beautiful Utah

One of my favorite pictures from last year just won it’s first online award. Ice Floe- a shot I made just before Christmas at the end of 2016- was just chosen as the Grand Winner of the Beautiful Utah Photo Challenge on ViewBug. As I looked over the images in competition, I see a lot… Read More

Head Over Heels

Well I had quite the fun shoot the other night. I always enjoy shooting ballet, and when you get the chance to work with a few young women from Ballet West Academy, it’s just that much better. These were some shots for our friends line of dancewear, and so we were pretty open as to… Read More

Lunatics Chasing Supermoons

Sunday and Monday nights treated us to the largest moon on 70 years. And the brightest. Challenge accepted Moon! I wanted to be well back from the Wasatch. I wanted the angle when the moon first appeared to be as shallow as possible, because the moon would be even bigger. To get that shallow angle,… Read More

The Great Zion Adventure, Part Two

Day two also began early. I was not sure exactly where I was meeting “the guys”, and I did not want them waiting for me, so I resolved to be first there. So I left Super 8 at 6 AM and went to a McDonalds- a combo McD’s and 7-11 if you can believe that…. Read More

The Great Zion Adventure, Part One

I have been looking forward to a trip to Zion for a long time- since talking with Ryan Smith at the Utah State Fair, actually. Ryan and I were discussing our bucket list of photo spots, and I mentioned The Subway. Ryan let slip that he had a four-person permit for mid-October, and he had… Read More

Best Of Show, Utah State Fair

I remember the disappointment I felt last year when I went to the Utah State Fair. A lot of my pictures did well, one even placed first… but the picture I felt strongest about wasn’t even hanging in the Fine Art gallery. Just as I was leaving, I turned back. There was a small panel… Read More
