Different Values of Light

As we all know light plays a key role in our photographs. The value of light and where the light is having the most impact in each composition can change the entire story. When I started working this Dipper nest I noted one very key element, where the light came up. The light made a […]

One of My Favorite Birds

The American Dipper is an amazing species that demonstrates the evolution of survival. This bird which is no bigger then a softball lives along streams and rivers and eats mainly aquatic insects. It’s dives underwater to catch it’s prey and actually has a special membrane over it’s eyes that allows it to see underwater. It’s […]

Just One More Day

It’s Friday yet again! It’s been a heck of a week with new Photoshop, D5 upgrades, vets that have gone west and so much more. It’s already summer in Bozeman with temperatures way higher then I would like but that means good times on the river and hopefully some good shooting. Here’s wishing everyone a […]

The Beechcraft Model 18

Many aircraft have become iconic over the years due to their historic legacies or years of service. Most of those planes are a little bit more flashy but the Beechcraft Model 18 is one of those planes that has been around since 1937 and today more then 300 are still flying in the US alone. […]

Watch your Surroundings

This is a really important lesson because it is very easy to get sucked into that one subject you’re working with and then forget about everything else around you. While I was photographing the Osprey’s there was a lot else going on. The area where I was had a bunch of ponds and a bunch […]

Nesting Birds in the Spring

Over the last couple of months I have slowly discovered new areas to go shooting certain species. One of the benefits of spending lots of time fishing is you tend to find a lot of bird species. A couple of weeks back I found a very accessible Osprey nest with both adults consistently diving and […]

A Little Flash Goes a Long Way

I’ve received some very nice compliments over the last year when it comes to my fishing photography and I can honestly say that I truly enjoy it. It has been a great learning process between working with aquatic species, portraiture, flash technique and time management. That’s the great thing about photography is there is always […]

Sometimes You Just Need a Reason to Post About a Big Plane

Truthfully I don’t need a reason, I’m always happy to put up a picture of a big bomber. Most of these planes were work horses then and after WWII. Well today actually marks an interesting day in aviation history, in 1944 B-29 bombers of the Twentieth Air Force took off from Air Bases in China […]

The Epson P400 Rocks!

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve gotten 35 prints made and shipped out all with the Epson P400. This little printer does a great job without any issues. I’ve had the P400 for about seven months now and I really do like the quality that it produces. It’s especially good for those looking to […]

An Uncommon Sight

One species that I have long been fascinated with is the Nighthawk. Higthhawks and Nightjar’s are such unique species that they almost beg the attention. Part of that allure is their size and yet incredible maneuverability. Most often they can be seen at early morning or late evening right when all the insects come out […]
