Going back to the old haunts

Over the years I have gone to some of the same locations over and over again in hopes of improving on the images I already have. Once you know of a good shooting spot, it’s good practice to go back there and challenge yourself to come up with something new or to improve. Well this […]

Using your backyard town

One of the frequent questions I get is how to get those good shots with just whats around town. Well a lot of it comes with patience and exploring. There is an amazing amount of opportunities right in everyone’s backyard that can yield some amazing results if only you stop and look for them. No […]

Good old Barns

If I’ve said it once I’ll say it again, I love old barns. Every time I find one I mark it down on the map. They just have such great character to them and the possibilities photographically are practically limitless. Of course having a dramatic sky helps to, which I found humorous as I was […]

Fun out on the Ranch

One of the best things about living in Montana is that there is so much open land. A lot of that openness is just from the amount of ranches and farms that have bought those large chunks of land. The amount of houses and buildings in that proximity are very minimal throughout the valley. Well […]

Shooting out Your Back Window

The holidays are over and it’s back to a regular work week, which means less time to go out shooting. That’s not such a bad thing as there are always ways to shoot while in the office. The easiest way is to setup a studio and play around with shots inside your office. But for […]

How much land is needed?

One thing I was taught along time ago or you could say something that I was told to think about was how much land do you need in the viewfinder when composing a shot? Sometimes the foreground and middle ground earth is important with telling the story. Then there are those times when they aren’t […]

Are those Cows?

I don’t think I have ever put up a shot before that had cows in it. They don’t exactly qualify as wildlife and not as landscape material either. But in this case I didn’t want to remove them in post. It just wasn’t necessary. In fact quite the opposite. This is part of an old […]

Got to love Puffy Clouds

I really don’t like grey skies. It seems like all we have been having lately are grey skies and off and on rain showers. It’s great that we don’t have much fire danger right now, and that everything is green. But when it’s four days of rain, it’s hard to get motivated to get out […]

What can those rusty cars tell us?

One of the subjects I love to photograph the most is old cars. Each one has it’s own unique story, the biggest is how it got to Montana in the first place and why is it now old and rusty. In each one is a whole lot of little details that in their own right […]

My 1000th Blog Post!

You know it’s funny how fast time goes by. You start one project never knowing just how far it will go or how long you keep it going and before you know it, a few years have gone by and you’re left wondering where all that time went. Back in 2008 when I first started […]
