Since this week marks the 70th anniversary of VE Day and with the number of airshows that are happening around the country, it seemed like a good time to write a little about different areas of aviation photography and how to approach certain scenarios. A…

One of my favorite aircrafts is not a fighter or a bomber but just a way cool transport. This is the Howard 500, a corporate sled built in the 1950’s and first flew in 1959. Howard Aero Inc. was taking decommissioned military surplus aircraft and turning…

One of the great joys of working with wildlife is never knowing what might cross my path. Driving Back from Canyon Ferry Lake this past weekend I was busy watching the weather and the clouds in the fading afternoon light. You can check out my post from…

I felt kind of bad for not doing a post for earth day so I thought better late then never but with a twist. Instead of showing some trees or some mountains, I thought I would go underground to the world beneath our feet. This is one of the chambers in…

I love learning new things and each day there is the possibility for something. Last weekend for instance I learned that Montana is one of the largest producers of Smoky Quartz crystal, a rare crystal in other states. The Smoky quartz is the dark version…

With the launch last week of Lightroom CC there was also an update to Camera Raw 9.0. With this new update came the ability to merge images in ACR to create panos and HDR images. For those that have ever tried to make panos before, using ACR is so much…

A while back I saw an image on Google+ and it was a real nice basic landscape shot that was taken while laying down in the middle of the road. It really got my attention and made me want to go out and get a shot like it. Now I have always been an advocate…

Introduction

Jake has spent his whole life in photography without knowing how much it was influencing him. From the time he was a squirt, being carried around in his parent’s arms, to college where he discovered his desire for exploring the world and sharing it with everyone else; he was taught, trained, and studied under other photographers. As a striving youngster trying to make his way in both the wildlife realm and aviation photography, he continues to find new stories and new people to share them with. His on going passion pushes him to astride for greater things as his journey continues forward.
