Snow in July!

Yes you read that title right. There is snow on the peaks of the Gallatin and Bridger Mountains in July! This place still amazes me and this is why. We had a real cold storm come through the other night, the temperature in the valley dropped below 50 and sure enough we got some snow […]

The Big Day Has Arrived!

That’s right it is the big day with the tiniest of images. Believe it or not I did think this through. While I was out shooting over the weekend we had some AMAZING clouds in pretty much every direction. Since the clouds filled the sky, the landscape photographer knew that the only way to capture […]

How Much Foreground is Needed With a Landscape?

Every photographer has heard of the rule of thirds. It’s one of the first things that we are taught in photography in order to achieve a good photograph.

A Couple of Hours is all takes

When I first started in photography it was because I enjoyed exploring. To this day I still enjoy exploring and most of the time you don’t have to go to far away or be out for a long time. Thankfully we had a great storm come through over the weekend, because we need the water, […]

The Camera Goes Everywhere!

When you are out and about you never know where that next great image will be and that’s why it is important to have your camera with you. If you saw my post yesterday then you know I had my camera with me while fishing. I have spent a lot of time on the Gallatin […]

It’s Good to be Out on the Water

I’ve started to really enjoy branching out in my photography into areas I never thought I would go. One of those areas is outdoor sports, like fly fishing. We’re starting to get back into the season where the rivers aren’t quite so high or muddy from the Spring runoff. The insects hatches are starting to […]

One Quick Spring Storm

I love Spring weather in the Rockies. Bozeman has always been a great place for landscape photography since we usually get some great clouds moving through. Yesterday was one of those days where I really wasn’t sure if anything was going to happen since nothing did all day. It wasn’t until about 5pm that the […]

Loving that ACR Pano Feature

Ever since Adobe added the merge to HDR and merge to Pano options in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom CC, I have truly been enjoying the capabilities of these features. Whenever I go out shooting, I take a few extra shots to see what kind of Pano I can create and sometimes they turn out […]
