First Book Talk/Signing was a Success! Sunday, May 10th, 2015

We were totally blown away with the result of our book talk/signing tonight in Rocky Mountain National Park. Horrible weather all day and getting worse, 96 people showed up. Almost standing room only. We spent 30+ minutes afterward in the bookstore signing books; sold a bunch of books. Great applause, great feedback, and everything ran smoothly! Couldn’t be happier! This pic got the most OOOoooos.

Changing the Shape can Change the Perspective Thursday, January 29th, 2015

I had a request recently for a piece to hang in the lobby of Wright Kingdom Real Estate in Boulder, Colorado.  The space is unusually wide but fairly short.  I looked through hundreds of my images trying to figure out what would work and realized I would have to create a new crop of an old piece to meet the specifications.  I was surprised to learn that I often preferred the new, unusual crops over the originals.  Here are some examples from my past Crested Butte Wildflower, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Yellowstone – Tetons photography workshops:

2015 – Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons Photo Tour Saturday, January 17th, 2015

September 16 – 20 are the dates for the 2015 Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons photo tour and photography workshop.  We’ll start in Bozeman, MT and head to Mammoth Hot Springs.  After a day working the northern part of the park we’ll work our way south, hiking into the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, before crossing into Grand Tetons National Park.  We’ll spend 3 days in the Tetons.  Last year we were able to come home with images of beaver, muskrats, moose, elk, bison and black bears.  Click this link for more details:  http://www.coloradoplateauphototours.com/pages/photo-tours-workshops/yellowstone-grand-tetons-5-days.php

2015 Starts With Night Photography in Moab, Cedar Mesa and Monument Valley Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

Here is the schedule for my 2015 workshops:

March:  The Everglades:  The Everglades is one of my favorite places to shoot.  When you know where to go and what time to be there the Everglades is non-stop shooting.

March:  Night Photography in the Desert Southwest:  Moab, Cedar Mesa and Monument Valley with Possible add-on of Arizona slot canyons.

April:  Moab, Cedar Mesa and Monument Valley:  Choose buffet style from the parts of this trip that interest you.

May:  Rock Art and Ruins of the Desert Southwest.  A Journey Through Colorado and Utah’s Desert and Canyon Country.

July:  Colorful Colorado:  Circumnavigate Colorado in a whirlwind tour that begins in NE Colorado at Rocky Mountain National Park and then takes in Sand Dunes National Park, Mesa Verde National Park,  Hovenweep National Park, the Maroon Bells and Crystal Mill near Aspen, and two days in the incredibly dense wildflowers of the high alpine basins above Ouray, Colorado.

July:  Colorado Wildflowers:  Previously marketed as my Crested Butte Wildflower Workshop, I’ve moved this to Ouray, Colorado after discovering the high altitude basins above Ouray that are much more dense in flowers.

August:  The Grand Canyon:  Photograph this amazing wonder of Nature in a 5 day workshop that will encompass both the North and South Rims and end with a helicopter flight into the trailhead for Havasu Falls.  Havasu Falls is possibly the most stunning waterfall in the United States for photographers.

September:  Colorado Fall Colors:  Centered around Ridway, Ouray and Telluride and the splendor of the San Juan Mountain in SW Colorado.

September:  Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons:  Capture the wildlife and grand landscapes of America’s oldest national park and it’s sister to the south on this 5 day workshop.

October:  Night Photography in the Desert Southwest:  Moab, Cedar Mesa and Monument Valley with Possible add-on of Arizona slot canyons.

October: Moab, Cedar Mesa and Monument Valley:  Choose buffet style from the parts of this trip that interest you.

November:  Rock Art and Ruins of the Desert Southwest.  A Journey Through Colorado and Utah’s Desert and Canyon Country.

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

I finally finished loading my complete 2015 photography workshop schedule into my website. It needs to be cleaned up a bit, but all the info is correct. Next up: March 26-29 Desert Southwest Night Photography, including 2 nights in Monument Valley on the Navajo Reservation. This will include sessions with females modeling traditional Navajo clothing, staged horse sessions with the Navajo horsed out among the formations. As a BONUS, this trip is scheduled to coincide with the shadows of the Mittens aligning!  As always, our schedule is heavily based around Moab, Canyonlands, Arches and Rocky Mountain National Parks, but I’ve also added the Everglades, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, the Grand Canyon and a new tour of Colorad, “Colorful Colorado” that circumnavigates the state to cover Rocky Mountain National Park, Sand Dunes National Park, Mesa Verde National Park, Hovenweep National Park and Canyon of the Ancients, the Maroon Bells and Crystal Mill.
