These are my favorite ten photos from 2016. Each image tells a story. The cold hard truth of photography (and maybe you artists out there can relate) is that I’m really only happy with about .0003% of the images I make. I took 20,000 to 30,000 photos in 2016; I feel […]
A summer exploration across the great Northwest. Exploring the streets and clam chowder of Seattle, the musical works of Nirvana, the beautiful, blooming Butchart gardens of Victoria BC, and the rocky shores in between.
*Shot while on assignment for a global, faith-based nonprofit. They retain all rights. Sunsets on the Thaunggin Moei river are beautiful. As the sun sets in beautiful shades of red and orange, native Karen tribespeople wade across the shallow parts of the river holding worn backpacks and baskets above their heads. […]
Recently, in a strange twist of debilitating fate, I had to take one of the longest flights in the world: John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) on Cathay Pacific Airlines. It clocks in as the world’s eighth longest flight at an average of 16HRs […]
Somewhere over north Texas our airplane hugged the rim of a gigantic lightning storm in the clouds. A great light show: flashes of red and white popping in the clouds and turning them into massive Chinese paper lanterns. I pulled out my camera and started to click away, hoping to […]
It was an absolutely crazy idea, but it could be done. My father-in-law had done it before, and he was the one that convinced my dad and I to do it with him and a friend. A four man team, crossing the Grand Canyon, North Rim to South Rim in […]
Sláinte! My wife and I have been fascinated by Ireland for years. Luckily her ancestors are from Ireland, which makes me an honorary Irishman… I think. We were married this last August and decided to go to Ireland for our honeymoon. The trip wasn’t intended to be a photo adventure, […]
I was sitting at Patient First, my primary care physician, with a gigantic bug bite. A bright, red, bulls-eye looking bump was now covering about half of my calf. The culprit? The doctor couldn’t say for sure, but we both agreed it looked like the Amblyomma americanum – otherwise known […]
I decided to go on a little adventure. I found myself at the Oakland Historic Cemetery at sunset. It was built in 1850 overlooking then downtown Atlanta, Georgia. With graves dating back to the early 1800’s, many of them Confederate soldiers, the graveyard seemed too unique to pass by unexplored. The […]
As we headed back to Livermore, CA after a day of shooting in Stockton we ran across a problem. A fire had crossed the interstate. On the positive side, while sitting in traffic, I shot some cool pictures of wind turbines at sunset.
I was holding my small HD camcorder, nearly hidden across the street. I could see through the open door of the Halal butcher shop. It was a busy day in this north Paris suburb, and a nearby Arab market was in full swing. Men were bringing in slabs of red […]
