A Good Day For a Hike

This past week brought the tail end of a huge storm that passed across the western half of the United States and that tail end brought snow and wind for us. Friday saw the last of it leading into a beautiful weekend of sunshine and thin clouds. It was the perfect time to be out […]

Snow equals black and white

I love photographing snow. Every patch of snow is different, because of every snow flake is actually different. The way the light bends and refracts off of the snow makes it so seductive that it can be challenging and rewarding. One of the best ways to make use of snow patches is to convert the […]

The Morning Steam is Back

The temperature is finally starting to drop. This week we might actually be back in the below freezing temps at night here in the valley. This past weekend was the closing day of the interior of Yellowstone. Soon the snow coaches and snowmobiles will be bringing people into the park to see the splendor of […]

Beautiful Fall Weather

It always makes me nervous when its October and it feels like the beginning of September. I don’t know if that is because I spent all of September inside on the computer working or if it’s just going to be one of those years. Usually when we get nice weather like this it means that […]

Fall Color Preview

One of the realities to being a photographer is occasionally you have to work. The upside of working is you make money, the downside is it’s hard to get out shooting.

The Benefits of Retracing Old Haunts

Fall means luxurious yellows, oranges and reds. It’s the iconic symbol of the season and in Montana, with Cottonwoods and Aspens all over the place, it’s a great time of the year to be out shooting. There’s one spot I love going and it’s not because of the color. There is a stretch of hwy […]

Barns in Fall Color

If you were at Photoshop World this past August and came to my class, then you probably heard me talk about writing down places you’ve traveled to previously so that you can go back later.

Breaking up the Fall Color

This time of the year brings a lot of photographers outdoors to photograph the fall color. In Montana Yellowstone is one of the hot spots to go to in the fall because of the great fall color spots as well as the fall rut going on with the Elk. Fall has always been one of […]

Going through the Canyon

The best images are the ones that don’t need to be explained, they don’t need finishing, they are the ones that when you capture that moment you know you’ve seen something that you haven’t before.

Fall Landscape Photography

Fall is back and that means the brilliant oranges, yellows and reds are here too. While here in Gallatin Valley the Cottonwoods are just starting to turn, the signs that winter is approaching are everywhere. This is one of the times when I enjoy shooting the most because there are some many opportunities even if […]
