I'm please to announce a new tour in partnership with fellow traveler and photographer Kenna Klosterman to the photogenic land of Cuba.
For those of us here in the USA this has not been possible until 2011 when the laws were changed and now under special guidelines it’s 100% legal. We’ll be traveling under a license from the US government for “People to People Cultural Exchanges.” We've created a tailor made schedule where we'll meet and interact with individual Cubans and a variety of community groups. These encounters will undoubtedly make for special memories and intimate photographic moments.

New Image galleries
Two new galleries from vastly different environments have just been posted. A trip to California with stays in Yosemite National Park and Death Valley National Park resulted in many fine experiences and amazing scenery. Traveling and camping with fellow photographer Jared Roger was loads of fun but followed a tough schedule. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, but we were up very early and moving and working till late at night. Theres a lot of work involved in being at the right place at the right time. We started with the classic viewpoints and moved about to find new ones. I look forward to returning to both parks as a single week at each one is just scratching the surface.
A second gallery is from the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival which occurs each April just an hours drive north of Seattle. My first visit resulted in a few good images and on a lark I decided to try for another day and had a bonanza of great scenes and fields. A good reminder to go back for one more look.

Put aside your work it’s time for some fun: Fun with Fisheye and Tilt-Shift lenses will take you beyond the everyday zoom or prime lens and into the world of unique tricks and cool effects. Learn how the lenses work, and see how to get the most out of them. Even if you don’t have one of these on your want list you be glad you saw the “How” and “Why” behind these most unique of lenses.
