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 […]

A Little Bit of Light in The Evening Thunderstorm

It’s gotten to be that time of the year where we start getting great thunderstorms rolling through in the afternoons in the Gallatin Valley. While this forecast does call for some snow this week, odds are it will turn to rain in the lower elevations and anything that accumulates will be gone in a day. […]

Rescued Film

A Great Concept!

Shutterbug released an article last night on The Rescued Film Project and I had to share it. As a photographer constantly looking at every photograph as a piece of history this made a lot of sense to me and what this man is doing is a pretty awesome service. Give it a read and check […]

Is it Possible To Always Get the Shot?

I spent Saturday by an Otter den waiting for them to come out. They didn’t. Wanting to still shoot but ready to call it on the Otters I then headed over to known Yellow Bellied Marmot spot to see if they would be more cooperative. They didn’t. Finally on Sunday I went down to the […]

A Good Read About the Mediterranean

I have come to truly enjoy reading books about the many exploits of pilots throughout WWII. It is fascinating to read about what the pilots went through and accomplished all around the world during those painful years. The last one I read was about Lord Hamilton and his exploits as a Spitfire pilot on the […]

The Mustang in the Pacific

It’s fascinating how history remembers certain things but not others. For instance the P-51 Mustang has become an iconic fighter plane from fighting over the skies of Europe during WWII. That is how the plane is remembered best but what fascinates me is many don’t know about the planes history in other theater’s especially the […]

Nikon D4 For Sale

Life is certainly interesting as it keeps changing. I remember a couple of years ago when I first got my D4 and what a big deal it was. Of course at the time I was still very much in love with my D3, until I saw the difference in quality. Now the time has come […]

What makes a Good Photograph?

I get asked this question a lot and it’s really hard to answer it because my normal answer of, “one that tells a compelling story,” usually isn’t ever good enough. The specifics of what makes a good photograph is always hard to nail down because every photograph is different. The obvious answer is light but […]

Color Composition

Color is one of the most important elements in every photographs but just as important is the relationship that color has to the other elements. An entire field of Psychology is dedicated to the relationship of color and the human mind. For us photographers it is a very important element to consider because it can […]

A little Light can tell a lot

Happy April Fools Day! It’s Spring. No it’s winter. Maybe not. Yea it’s that time of the year that isn’t really spring but isn’t really winter either. It’s what we like to call Montana Spring. As result we often get rather weird storms coming through which yields rain in the valley and snow in the […]
