Big Game Woes

When it comes to the vertical composition and big game the question most often asked is where do you crop into the subject? Shoulders, neck line, legs, you really have to be careful what you include and what you don’t because it can really look odd if you aren’t. For instance, just like with a […]

Steamy Goodness

Fall color isn’t the only thing worth going out for this time of year. One of my favorites has always been and will continue to be steam. After a cold night with fresh frost along the banks of the Madison River, the steam that comes up from the sun heating up the water molecules can […]

Snow Patterns

Mother Nature can surprise us with some pretty unbelievable possibilities. They don’t always get noticed, in fact this is a great example of one that my friend would’ve stepped on. Freshly fallen snow is good for a number of different compositions including patterns. I love finding those patterns because it’s natures way of creating an […]

Crazy Can Be Good

Not everyone fishes during or after a snow storm let alone when it’s below freezing but sometimes it yields rewards. For a photographer the reward is that freshly fallen snow, add in a great mountain range and top it off with a little spot lighting and boom you got something to work with. I talked […]
