Planes of Fame Airshow is here!

If you live in southern California then you’ve probably heard of the Planes of Fame Airshow held at Chino Airport at the end of April/beginning of May. It’s one of the great Warbird airshows on the west coast and it’s one that I’ve gone to numerous over the years. I missed last year’s show because […]

Which Pano option is best?

Simple Pano question for you. When it comes to panos is it better for the pano to be long and skinny or shorter and wider? I keep playing with the different aspect ratios which differs greatly when you combine more images and I can’t decide whether spherical or cylindrical is a best. In some cases […]

What to do with Gray Skies?

I quite often post about working with gray skies on my blog and the challenges they present. Often times I don’t go out shooting on those kind of days because even if you find a great subject the light creates a more depressing or sad mood that can be seen in the photos. However, in […]

The Artsy side of Wildlife

I often don’t go towards the more artistic side of wildlife photography but every now and then an opportunity presents itself and you just have to go with it. After my run in with the wolf I truly done for the day. I didn’t think it could get any better and the light was fading […]

74 years Later

April 18th marked the 74th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid. It was the first raid conducted against Japan by USAAF B-25 bombers launched from the carrier USS Hornet. This one act has gone down in history not only for the bravery of the men but also the determination of the mission. Today there are only […]

More out then just Fury Friends

You know the best part about working with wildlife is you never know what you’ll see. Sometimes critters just show up. Some call that part luck others just accept it for happening. This was one of those times where just sitting and watching brought more into frame. I was watching a pair of Sandhill Cranes […]

Patience Pays Off

Patience is a very important aspect of wildlife photography that cannot be underestimated. For some reason there is always a rush to keep going, to see what else is down the road, even if there is a good subject right in front of the photographer. Well this scenario happened to me this past weekend when […]

Bison Always Make Good Subjects

Bison are one of those great American west animals that I truly enjoy photographing. Right now is a great time of the year to be out working with these big mammals because the the Spring calf’s are starting to drop. When I was out on Saturday in Yellowstone, I saw only three of four this […]

In the Absence of Light, Structure is King

Even when the light has finally disappeared, it’s not time to put the camera away yet. Without light all that is left is structure and structure can make for some great images. Spring thunderstorms are great examples as the clouds often form these great masses of drama. The key is to take that image and […]

The North American P-64

This is a really cool aircraft that I have only had the chance of seeing once at the Wings over Gillespie Airshow a number of years ago. The North American P-64 was an export fighter designed off of the NA-50 which was a single seat fighter for export. The P-64 was the United States designation […]
