I started this blog about 10 months ago. I wanted to take my “good” photos off of Facebook. Wary of social media and not interested in likes, hearts, or follows I started this blog. I cataloged all of my photos from 2010 to present and posted them here. It wasn’t too difficult and I was able to organize them into categories just how I wanted. I loved it! Now, 10 months later I’m starting to realize there could be so much more here. Sure, photography is my life. I work with photography and play with photography. But, photography still isn’t […]
I’ve been drinking a lot of tea lately. When I was in China I was able to sample a lot of home brewed teas from visiting Danas’ relatives homes. They drank only loose leaf tea, mostly oolong teas. They would hand me a cup with a lid on it filled with hot water and tea leaves. Some of the teas were good and some not so good, to my tastes. When we came home Dana’s father tried to load us up with a 5lb brick of black tea. We had to watch our weight so we instead brought home a […]
Here some landscapes I shot while at the Valley of Fire State Park on an early morning visit in early October 2019. These were all taken on the fly with a Sony A6000 and 16mm-70mm F4 Zeiss (awesome lens!).
Here some early to late morning aerial shots in and around Valley of Fire State Park just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Here are some landscape photos from my recent weekend trip to Utah.
A quick weekend to Cedar City, Utah provided tons of photographic opportunities. A much needed break from the Vegas heat and just to take some time and breath a little. I had visited Cedar City early last year to shoot a hotel. It was a just a day trip. I really liked the to town and had always wanted to return. We took that opportunity when a free weekend came up and went for it. It was an awesome weekend. We reserved one day for a drive to Brian Head Resort. It was a perfect day. We rode the ski […]
I couldn’t miss the opportunity to go see the PRCA Rodeo at the Iron County Fair. As you can see from the pages of this blog that I’m a big fan of rodeos. I start photographing them in late 2010 while living in Huron, South Dakota. Throughout my moving around in the Dakotas from Dickinson, North Dakota and onto Rapid City, South Dakota, I always made sure to attend the local rodeos during the summer months. Those days are some of the best days I can remember looking through my view finder. So, I was very glad to see that […]
This has been a slow year when it has come to personal work. I’ve been putting my head down and using most of my energy in my real estate work. Has it paid off? I’m not so sure. Every time I think I take a step forward I feel I take 2 steps back. But, I’m further along than I was this time last year and much further than I was 5 years ago. I feel like I’ve started to stagnate or burned out. Maybe all I need is a break? I’ve also been re-branding my business site. I’d really […]
When I lived in California I did contract photography work for a company out of Michigan. Most of the jobs they sent me were to shoot motels such as Motel 6 and La Quinta Inn. These jobs were easy. All I had to do was set-up my camera to automatically bracket for exposures and line up the shot and press the shutter button. When I arrived home I uploaded the RAW files to their server and they handled the processing work. I took these jobs, because they paid well for the amount of work I had to do. Well, this […]
Eldorado Canyon Mining Tours is a picture perfect place for photographers.
