Come join me for a private workshop session in Yosemite!

  I have been running my Yosemite Private Workshops for ten years now. Although I taught group workshops around the world starting in the early 1980s, I have greatly enjoyed the one-on-one sessions and personal connections I’ve had while showing my approach to landscape photography in my beloved Yosemite Valley. The best times to come […]

New Morning Light Image – Spring Oak, Coarsegold, California 2011

This morning, I photographed a wonderful spreading oak tree with brilliant morning sunlight.  Since the contrast was strong and I was aiming into the sun, I made seven exposures with .5 stops between frames.  After importing the files in Lightroom, I applied the Lens Correction for my Canon 16-35mm zoom, then exported to Nik HDR […]

Foggy sunrise

Here is another image from Monday morning.  I took seven frames, each one stop difference, and my assistant John assembled them using Lightroom and Photomatix’s Lightroom plugin (http://www.hdrsoft.com/).  This was taken with my Canon 16-35mm as the sun rose through the fog.  The tree behind the big oak were heavily tilted due to the convergence […]

Monterey Bay Sunrise

This photograph was made at sunrise overlooking Monterey Bay from Point Pinos.  I used my Singh Ray Vari-ND filter to use a slow shutter speed so the surf would be blurred.  Check out info on this filter here:  Singh Ray Vari-ND filter I hope you enjoy this one!  You might enjoy seeing my portfolio from […]

Ansel Influences

Here is a photograph of Ansel Adams and me, made at The Ansel Adams Gallery in  June of 1980 or 1981.  The occasion was an evening party during one of his famous workshops.  I was the “staff photographer” at the Gallery, and so got a “free pass” to events and lectures by Ansel and other […]
