Lights Over Lake Isabelle
With good friend Bryce Hancock joining me, I did a little overnight exploring in the Indian Peaks.  I was interested to see how the wildflowers were coming along so I decided to go see for myself.

In this view from above Lake Isabelle, the light from front range cities Longmont and Fort Collins provided quite a bit of glow.  Thanks for staying so still for this image, Bryce!

It's good to be back in Colorado!  This weekend, I'm lined up for another art festival - the Lyons Art on the Green.  So if you're free and you're in the area, be sure to stop by.  Heck, I'm right off the main drag so if you're just headed back from Rocky Mountain National Park, be sure to wave when you get to Da Blues Bus!

What: Lyons Art on the Green
Where: Sandstone Park in Lyons, Colorado
When: Saturday 6/20 10-6, Sunday 6/21 10-5

+David Marsh​ smiles as he gets some private photography instruction in the Tetons with Mike Berenson​.  Dave was looking to make the most of his the big Teton night photography workshop so he scheduled some private time right before the group event.  Dave & Mike spent the afternoon at Schwabacher's Landing and two of the barns on Mormon Row and Dave left very pleased with all he'd learned.

Jackson Point Overlook in Teton National Park... It took a little more work to find the wildflowers here.

Milk Trails Over The Moulton Barn
When I have a night photography workshop in progress, I tend to like to shoot long-exposure photographs.

It's a chance to see the beauty of the night sky and the colors that appear when you go beyond the short exposure times. It's also a good chance for me to spend time with students while capturing a cool image at the same time.

There is a lot more to this post... see the rest of the story, how I got the shot, and get free wallpaper from


If you've ever wanted to learn how to capture the Milky Way stars, this is a great opportunity to make it happen.

Mid-Summer Check-In

I'm half-way through with my Colorado Captures - Art Festival tour and thought I'd check in.  With three festivals behind me (Park Hill, Chicago, and Lyons), I have three more to go (Breckenridge, Lake Dillon, and Evergreen).  And the Breckenridge event being the biggest local event of the summer, I'm very excited for a big weekend.

If you're in the area, I hope you can stop by!

Where: Breckenridge at Main Street Station
When: Friday, Saturday, & Sunday (July 3, 4, & 5) from 10am to 6 pm

Night photography student, +John Lybrand captured this image during our recent workshop in the Tetons.  I especially liked his composition with the foreground trees and reflected stars captured at String Lake.  Great work, John!

+Darren White  and I kicked off a new tradition in the Tetons with our sold-out night photography workshop this past weekend.  The conditions were incredible and the students had a fantastic time!

Now it's time to begin my drive to Chicago for the Old Town Art Fair but before I do that, I wanted to share this quick phone pic teaser from one of the wildflower sunsets in the Tetons with night photography student Dirk Heseman​.

Having found my love for photography deep in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, I found a great drive to share the wonders of the world with those who aren't so fortunate to see it for themselves.  Now, I use that same passion to drive me into the dark of the night in my home state of Colorado and beyond - still with the same underlying mission to share the wonders of the world with those who aren't so fortunate.
Join me on a photographic adventure - whether through my images or on one of my night photography workshops.  That's right, you can share the passion and see the techniques that result in magnificent nightscape images.  Either way, you're sure to pick up some inspiration along the way!
For those interested in learning more about my night photography techniques, be sure to check out my Night Photography Blog where I post articles that supplement the content I teach in my night photography workshops including "How To" Articles and Tutorials, Product Reviews, and Recommended Photo Gear.  Of course, let me know if you run into any questions.  I'm happy to help.
