Just Keep Pushing

The one piece of advice that Dad taught me that always stuck, keep pushing. It’s not a very complicated thought but it is certainly one that means a lot. In this business it’s either do or don’t and there really isn’t much middle room. I bring it up today since I recently got my third […]

The weather doesn’t usually cooperate with the calendar which tends to make things interesting. A lot of the area is still […]

Ghost Forests are the Best!

Ghost forests are a pretty amazing natural phenomenon that can yield some gorgeous images. The stark beauty of the dead trees still standing compared to the living world around them always tell an interesting story of what was and what still is.

Always Look for the Comedy

I know what you’re thinking, No I didn’t turn my camera upside down. The best part about working with critters is you never know what they’ll do next.

A Must For Any Bag

If there is one universal truth to working in the field, no matter which field that is, it’s that camera gear gets dirty. We try our best but it ends up happening no matter what. Fingerprints, smudges, oil, sunblock or whatever it’s always something. Well when it comes to working with planes it’s usually oil, […]

The MP Bag’s are Rockin it!

One of the things I don’t talk about a lot is, Dad always had a great knowledge when it came to camera bags so I never had to learn the hard way when it came to traveling with gear which bags work and don’t work. For a number of years now I have a been […]
