Styling Food for Photography

Hey folks!  So last week I was doing some research on improving my food photography.  While I got some good tips on many aspects of the process by far the most interesting was how food is styled.  Did you know that most food photography is styled?  By that I mean manipulated and coerced to look a c [click link to read more...]

Summit Lake in Clouds

I think this might be...  yes, definitely is my favorite photos I've taken at Summit Lake.  It's always beautiful, but when the clouds begin to surround the lake it takes on a whole new level of cool.  You ask why it's not "fog".. well considering this photos is taken at 12,000 feet I still co [click link to read more...]

Good Morning World - Sunrise in the Rockies

5:30 am at 12,000 feet.  A small stream comes off a nearby glacial mass and feeds the pond in the distance.  We are so high that when looking straight off the edge of the pond you see the sky below you.

Isn't it nice to wake up in the Rocky Mountains?

Just another image taken while leading m [click link to read more...]

Fun with Goats

I recently ran some photography tour clients up to Mount Evans and ran across a fun bunch of mountain goats. While no big white males were around to impress us with their cool look, this little clan did a great job of providing some entertaining [click link to read more...]

2015 Burro Races in Idaho Spring Colorado

While leading one of my Colorado photography tours our group happened across dozens of burros running down a windy mountain road (Virginia Pass) with owners in tow.  In all likelihood it was supposed to be the other way around, but you know burros....  right?

Anyway, that's a photos opp for sure [click link to read more...]

Venus Optics Laowa 15mm f/4 Macro Lens Review

I picked up my new 15mm Venus Optics Laowa macro lens last week.  Very excited.  I had big visions of this lens being my "cool style" macro lens in addition to being my compact super wide for landscapes and travel.  So why am I speaking about this lens in a "past tense"?  Well, I ended up shipping [click link to read more...]

Mount Evans at Sunset

Mount Evans at Sunset in Colorado is by far my favorite place to take my photo tour clients.  At 14,265 feet above sea level, It's my "go to" / "can't miss" location.  This past weekend I ran a friendly Aussie up there for photos and had my best sunset images of the summer.  We really lucked out as [click link to read more...]

It's a changing world, and soon it will become a homogeneous world. I don't much care for that idea, so I'm trying to see different cultures and unspoiled lands while they still exist. Along the way I want to help others to see the magic of the world around them through the lens of a camera.
