Just Like Old Times

I’ve just returned from an incredible time in Santa Fe, where I spent a week learning new skills, spending time with outstanding people, and doing things I never thought I’d do. I’ve been learning a unique photographic process that I have come to absolutely love, and I’m thankful to my teachers and fellow students for […]

Desert Sculpture

Many of us love to travel long distances to see the amazing things of the world and yet rarely take the same time to appreciate what’s right around us, and well, I’m no different.

Into the Fire

Over the weekend, a friend and I set out on a two-day road trip to visit some of Northern Arizona’s natural wonders. We needed some time away from the city, so we headed out to see one of the slot canyons near the Utah border. We knew we would be in for stunning landscapes and […]

Over the long weekend, I spent several days at the family “ranch.” Things are different every time I go there, so I’ve decided to do a series of 360 degree panoramas on the progress of the place. It will be a long-term thing, of course, but I added a couple images to the archive this […]

In the midst of that wilderness is where I spent the last several days, celebrating the Christmas holiday with family who […]

New – Postcards from Ladakh

I’ve had several requests for postcards of my images, so today they’re here! I’ve created this first set using images from my most recent trip to Ladakh, India. They come in packs of 20, and each pack includes 10 different images (yep, when you do the math that means you get two cards of each […]

Vegas and Versace

Well, I’ve just returned from Photoshop World and I have to say that Ladakh to Delhi to Phoenix to Las Vegas in four days is kindof, ahem, insane. I spent three days mostly trying to hide in the hotel and conference center to shield myself from as much of Vegas as possible. I had a […]
