Too Much…. The Magic Bus

Wow- Sunday was a busy day. And a very diverse day. Three locations, three models, 100’s of miles and 100’s of images… and it was all a blast. I got more- and better- images than I was even hope for. And despite 6 solid, draining hours of shooting, everyone was laughing and having a great… 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

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

Sand. Sand Everywhere.

Original concept for this shoot was twins. Two girls with remarkably similar hair. Remarkably long legs. Incredibly slender physiques. And luckily for me, they get along. So the plan was to shoot them doing remarkably similar things… or totally opposite things. But shoot them together. For a location we chose a State Park just an… Read More
