Once again, I am participating in the Yosemite Foothills Open Studio Tour – Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 5, 6 & 7, 2012. My home studio will be full of my fine art prints, books and posters. I hope to see old friends and meet new ones! Let me know if you think […]
The mind is an amazing thing. One of the great unknowns when making a photograph is how the viewer will respond. Once the artist has made an exposure and then edited it for presentation, a new life begins for any image shared with others. Each person who looks upon the image brings his or […]
Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III__EF70-200mm f/2.8L USM__0.3 sec at f / 22__ISO 100 On Monday morning, after a strong series of rain storms came the the Sierra, there was heavy fog in the Oakhurst/Ahwahnee area. I photographed this quiet grove of oaks. Here is one new image, made from three horizontal frames stitched together in […]
In addition to my private studio workshops, I am developing new offerings for One-One-One Private Workshops in Yosemite National Park and the nearby Sierra foothills. Although the project is not fully defined yet, I expect to offer 1-2 day sessions for one student, or for small groups of 2-4 students (at a group rate). Please let […]
Here is an image from Friday morning… I used Nik HDR Effex Pro to combine 5 exposures. Enjoy!
I am unsure of the right words to describe the emotions I felt when standing before this scene, but “powerfully uplifting” is what comes to mind. It caught my breath and soothed my soul at a moment when it was most need. Last week, John O’Connor and I took a client to photograph at a […]
I made this image on Friday before the big winter snowstorm hit us on the weekend. I am thrilled with the photo, and have many other versions to process, but just had to share this one! BTW, I used my trusty Vari-ND for this new Impressions of Light image. Also, I have reduced the cost […]

Oaks and Fog, Sierra Nevada Foothills, California 2010 I finally found great conditions for my Morning Light series! On Sunday night, we had a rip-roaring thunderstorm in our area. When I drove my daughter to Coarsegold on Monday morning, there was a thick fog at her school. On my way home, I spotted these beautiful […]

During the past thirty years of my career, I have always taught photography whether at major workshop programs around the country, through my Outdoor Photographer column, On Landscape, or […]
Earlier this week, I received three calla lilies to photograph. For three days, I left them in a corner of my dining room where I have found magic light in the past (see blog post from October 2009). I hung my every-ready black velvet on a chair behind the blossoms. On the second day, the […]
I have been busy with the “day to day” of running my business, including making new images. I hope to post soon, so stay tuned! This month’s Featured Print is “Dogwood blooming, Yosemite National Park, California 2005″ shown to the left. I created this image five years ago. My EXIF date shows that I was […]
Here is another pier photograph from La Jolla. This was my first session photographing the pier, and my previous post was taken at sunset on the same day. For this image, I used my Singh Ray Vari-ND filter to extend the length of the exposure. I waited for a wave to wash up near my […]
Last week, my family and I enjoyed a vacation at the beach. We stayed in La Jolla, a place I’ve been visiting since I was a small kid. Spent one day at Seaworld, and another day at the beach. I’ve noticed the Scripps Pier for years, and I’ve enjoyed other photographer’s images of piers. But […]
