Goodbye 2018 – Hello 2019

The end of the year is always a slow time for photography and even slower time for Internet traffic. Normally Colorado has seen a bit of snow by the end of December but this year has been fairly dry and cold. Interestingly, as I write this article on New Year’s Eve, we are actually getting…

Photography Do’s and Don’ts

Grand Finale

Another season of Autumn Photography comes to a close here so I thought I’d put together a gallery of some of my personal favorite Autumn Landscape Photographs from my journeys through Colorado over the past 10 years.

The Best Moose is the One You Have With You

Now that I’ve returned from a successful and probably final moose photography outing in Northern Colorado this year, I’m sifting through and editing some 3,500 or so fresh images of these amazing creatures. As with any photographic subject, one can find a number of different attitudes and views among friends and acquaintances. One reoccurring attitude…
