  • Alaska is Calling: New Video Project

    Alaska has always been on my bucket list of places to go — what better location for someone who loves being in the outdoors? But there was always somewhere a little closer, or a little less expensive to travel to. Or when time and budget weren’t major factors, then Alaska wasn’t that far away after all — […]

  • Video: Old Sacramento

    Thursday Morning in Old Sacramento The Background My latest video project started out as a way to take advantage of an opportunity. Over the past few months I’ve had to travel to downtown Sacramento, CA every two weeks. Not knowing the city very well, I started arriving early to explore a bit, and found myself […]

  • Swimming With Stingrays in Bahia de los Angeles

    A travel essay I wrote a few years ago about a trip to Baja California in Mexico. In Bahia de los Angeles, on the gulf coast of Baja California, there are no signs to warn you about the stingrays. In the United States, a ubiquity of signs alert one to the variety of dangers faced in […]

  • Don’t Like the Photo? Wait Five Minutes

    There’s a saying in the mountains: If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes – it’ll change. As photographers, we often need to wait for a photograph to come together; sometimes it only takes a few seconds, sometimes a few days. But whether we’re waiting for a storm to pass, a moment to happen, […]

  • Video: Discovering Costa Rica

    Three friends travel to Costa Rica, and discover more than just a buggy jungle. My wife Carol and our dear friend Dakota traveled to Costa Rica in search of lush jungles, outlandish wildlife, and adventure. This is a video postcard from our journey.

  • Photographing Costa Rica: Boca Tapada

    Part 4 of a 4-part travelogue from Costa Rica The problem wasn’t so much that Dakota had capsized his kayak in a river filled with 10’ crocodiles, or even that he was now soaking wet with hours yet to paddle; it was that he had lost his binoculars. A 30-second vignette of Boca Tapada, Costa […]

  • Photographing Costa Rica: Arenal

    Part 3 of a 4-part travelogue from Costa Rica “Five hanging bridges . . . 2.25 miles of gorgeous trails . . . cloudy and calm . . . 1:00pm . . . yeah, we were going to run out of time.” — from Carol’s journal. A 34-second vignette of Arenal, Costa Rica The map […]

  • Photographing Costa Rica: Monteverde

    Part 2 of a 4-part travelogue from Costa Rica The first thing we noticed was the wind. A cold, howling, grab-a-fencepost-so-you-don’t-fall-over kind of wind. My first photography hero, Galen Rowell, wrote in his book Mountain Light: “A flower photographer’s hell is a place of tremendous beauty . . . in continuously perfect light where a […]

  • Photographing Costa Rica: Playa Grande

    “Oh, Sweetie, why don’t you just sleep in for once?” “I can’t. We’re only here for a couple days before we move on, and I’ve got to photograph as much as I can – who knows if and when we’ll ever make it back here?” “But you’re going to burn yourself out.” “No, there’s too […]
