One Last Antique

A long time ago I started going to a junkyard to work the antique and aged cars that made up the yard. It was these little corners that I started to develop my technique and skill as a photographer and thus wouldn’t forget them. Sadly this particular one outside of Bozeman is gone. Not sure […]

Using Adobe Camera Raw with iPhone shots

I was playing around today with some shots I took with my iPhone while flying between trips and decided to post one of them. While it certainly is never going to be hanging on my office wall it’s still fun to play around with. It’s amazing how far our phone cameras have come and now […]

The Inner Scene Becomes the Whole Scene

When it comes to landscape photography I was taught a long time ago that taking in everything in your scope, while good, is not always the best way to go about it. If you go by the traditional rule of thirds then you have to take everything into effect but if you are trying to […]

The Fabulous Spring Sunsets Have Returned

I’ve spent most of my life living in the mountains and it still amazes me how much the landscape can change. For a couple of years now I have gone to one spot just south of town for sunset shoots of the Bridger Mountains. The main reason is an obvious one, it’s a really good […]

14-24mm to 18mm

For many years now I have had the 14-24mm AF-S f/2.8 lens in my camera bag. When it comes to landscape photography you really want to be able to go wide at times. Not every shot, but there are those occasions where the wide shot can tell a more complete story. That range of the […]

The In Between Time

While I love going out fishing and equally going out shooting other people fishing, I have to admit that there is some down time. The main subject when out fishing is of course the fish, when none are being pulled you have to wait. If you love being outdoors then it really isn’t a problem […]

The Great Outdoors

I love combining my passions. If you’re truly passionate about something then normally you want to do that one thing all the time. The problem is usually there isn’t enough time to do everything that you’re passionate about. When I was growing up I was always outdoors. Golfing, Fishing, Bicycling were all in a normal […]

It’s all about the Perspective

While I was out light painting I thought of a couple of other ideas that I wanted to try. One was including my friend Alex as he is an actual cowboy. At the corner of their property is a great Oak tree that has made a great subject several times in the past, it seemed […]
