Story
Introduction
I am a photographer based in Colorado who specializes in nature, rural/country lifestyle and retro themed images.  I have always been rather fascinated with photography since I was young...I remember my parents using an old 110 Kodak and I getting in trouble at the ripe young age of 6 for running around the neighborhood and taking pictures of all my friends, using up all the film. 

I guess I started taking photography a lot more serious when a class in it was required towards my BFA in Illustration at Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design in Denver. It was a traditional B&W film class, and I fell in love, deeply, and it was that love for photography that later on would have me going after a career in it instead of illustration. 

My images are very diverse, from hotrods to waterfalls, from mountain peaks to the city streets. If it looks interesting to me I will shoot it. In many of my images, I try to capture something that will evoke an emotional response from the viewer; I want to have an image that the viewer can relate deeply to. 

My images have appeared on the covers of phone books, CD covers, inside magazines with interviews about me as a photographer, and on calendars. I am always thrilled when I am approached and very humbled...there is no greatest compliment to an artist than having their work published or their prints sold...to think someone wants my work hanging on their wall pretty much floors me. 

Most of my work can be found on My website and I can be contacted there for inquiries on prints and stock. I also have a photoblog which I keep as well.

"A Fall Snow At Sunrise"
Greetings G+! It's been awhile hasn't it. Several months actually. I have been incredibly busy and since the start of Fall, I have been through a lot. Some quite good, some incredibly bad but I've learned a lot along the way too. I spent my Autumn this year in the West Elk Mountains outside of Crested Butte and it was an amazing experience. I miss it a great deal and I miss life in general at that time. This autumn I will be spending a great deal of time down there again and I'm really looking forward to it. This was photographed along Kebler Pass on a snowy morning when the sun was just starting to rise. It's hard to beat conditions like this. 
So how have you all been??

"A Fall Snow At Sunrise"
Thanks everybody for the feedback, favs and shares, I do have prints available, check out my shop here kkart.deviantart.com/store/ 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I know, been absent lately around G+ but there's a good reason why...it's been an incredible Fall and I have been BUSY BUSY BUSY! Spent 3 weeks photographing my state of Colorado....it's winding down now so I'll be about more....anyways....this shot----Snow clouds begin to clear along Kebler Pass outside of Crested Butte, Colorado and as they do, East Beckwith Mountain of the West Elks begins to emerge at sunrise showing its fresh new coat of snow. This scene didn't last long at all, really no more than a few seconds before the peak was engulfed once again with clouds. The sky was simply amazing, reflecting the sunrise behind me. Mostly everything is rather cloudy with pockets of fog but for a brief moment things opened up to give a glimpse. Colorado, there's just no other place like it especially during Autumn!

"Under Pink Skies"
~~Please feel free to share my photograph, prints available here http://www.deviantart.com/print/36666116/
-------------------
Ahhh Colorado, you're more beautiful than I could ever possibly find the words for! This sunflower season has been absolutely spectacular with many huge fields close by to one another. It's been an absolute treasure trove for photography & along with some great shooting, I have met many new photography friends and ran in to several old ones along the way. It's been a great time and I've come away with a lot of images I am really happy with. Now if I can just remember the mosquito repellent! You can easily get eaten alive out here to put it lightly. More to come, stay tuned folks! If you are looking to buy prints, these do make excellent large prints on luster or glossy paper. Canvases look great as well!

FREEWARE PHOTOGRAPHY FRIDAY!

FREEWARE PHOTOGRAPHY FRIDAY! -- Now this looks pretty darn sweet. It does some very light editing but more importantly it appears to be DAM software. It also has a little first for Sony shooters! It also can tell you how many clicks of the shutter you've taken with your Sony camera.
I am going to have to check this out. I also like the fact it supports DNG.

"August Dusk"
Prints available here http://www.deviantart.com/print/36533923/ 
I decided to hit up the sunflowers at sunset again. I picked a different than the previous night which is pretty easy to considering the field is probably 6 miles by 6 miles in size. It was more challenging however as there was a breeze and they kept blowing around a lot so I had to really mess with my exposure to bring up the shutter speed some which I hate to do when photographing sunflowers. The scene though did play out well in the end and I was given a great sunset sky setting over the front rage of the Colorado Rockies. Can't complain about that! The next couple of weeks should be exciting as myself and my fellow photography friends will be working the landscape out here a great deal. Stay tuned!

"Gothic Mountain"
Thank you everyone for the comments, if you're interested in prints please note me.
+++++++++++++
Gothic Mountain is shrouded in clouds after fresh snow outside of Crested Butte, Colorado during autumn. It is just incredibly amazing down here & I am looking forward to spending most of my autumn this year down here again in the West Elk Mountains. Everywhere you looked, there was something to photograph. To say my head was on a swivel is an understatement in amazement by the beauty which surrounded me.

Do you shoot Sony cameras? Here's the biggest unknown tip ever.
  This autumn I spent some time down in the West Elk mountains of Colorado. All I can say is is a very huge "wow". If you've never been there you really need to put it on the "must do" list. An amazing place that really is a photographers heaven. Like any o...

"Lightning & Sunflowers"
-----------------------------
Fine art prints & canvases available of my photograph here http://www.deviantart.com/print/36632760/
----------------------------
About The Photograph--- So this happened Tuesday night. I was racing to the sunflower fields when I saw the clouds turning incredible about 90 minutes before sunset. What a night I chose to go...absolutely incredible conditions! This image here was captured in basically completely dark conditions. The light and color you see is a direct result of light pollution and the long exposure itself which was around 45 seconds. I was over the moon when I realized I managed to get the lightning in the image. Lightning over the sunflower fields has been a LONG bucket list item of mine and I can now officially scratch it off!

I shot a video of the massive sunflower field here in Colorado last night. I've been meaning to do this but I kept forgetting about, still not used to getting video out of my camera. This will give you all a small sense of one small section of the field at sunset. Please watch in full screen and in HD.

Belmar Park 3-11-2012 | Morning Light Of March

The sunrises kisses the tops of the Willow trees at Belmar Park in Lakewood, Colorado on a beautiful morning in March

Just stayed up this past weekend for our annual "Colorado in fall photography meetup" and will be staying here a LOT more often and many more times! I was very surprised at just how quaint this place is and how friendly everybody was. Even housekeeping would wave to you. This is a family run Inn and honestly you basically feel like you have known everybody for a long time. I like that, very personable that you tend not to have with chains. They are also pet friendly and our room was quite large, even having a fenced in patio area. Yes, an actual patio with chairs. Prices are on par with everywhere else in Estes, however the friendly staff and the cleanliness of the facility and our room made it a great bargain. I won't lie, if you want a place to stay in Estes which is just downright comfortable, quiet, friendly and clean, look no place else. This is the place for you!
