My Favorite Images from 2018

2108 was a big year of change for my photography. I set out to spend more time on the creative side of photography and less time on the "community" side of photography. To that end I walk away from social media (Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, 500px etc). In addition I refocused my website towards my Architectural,... Continue Reading →

Patos Island

I feel blessed for every day that I'm able to call the San Juan Islands home, some days, however, feel even more blessed. Such is always the case when I get to visit Patos Island. For the second straight year the "Round the County" race commitee generious ferried me to stunning Patos Island. And the... Continue Reading →

A Couple of “Late” Season Hikes

As it often does, summer sped by way to fast. But when I returned from Scotland, my amazing visit to Fair Isle, I was pretty darn determined to get up into the mountains a time or two before the monsoon season hits the Pacific Northwest. Goat Lake Trail - September 2018 My first trip was... Continue Reading →

Saying Goodbye to the Magic of Fair Isle

My time on Fair Isle is rapidly drawing to a close. But I’m still up before dawn shooting in the morning and scouting in the afternoon. I can’t quite tell which I enjoy more. The landscape here is so diverse and amazing. I’ve never before experienced the high, sheer cliffs like the one I’ve experienced... Continue Reading →

The Best Laid Plans of Mice & Men

Do sometimes, if only rarely, work to perfection. Such was my convoluted journey to Fair Isle Scotland (although locals might stubbornly prefer “Fair Isle Shetland”. But I’m smart enough not to get involved with that debate). And although I confess to being weary from the journey, it was so definitely worth it. Fair Isle Scotland... Continue Reading →

First Visit to the Olympic Peninsula

Blue Mountain - Olympic National Park, Washington It seems this is the year I'm crossing a bunch of things off my list. Or more accurately, starting new photographic relationships. And the Olympic National Park could be a very long and intimate fling. Such a stunning location. And I fully realize that more than a few folks... Continue Reading →

Kaanapali Beach, Maui Hawaii

May's Beach Kaanapali Maui Hasselblad X1D + Xpan Lens For going on 10 years I've had the "obligation" of accompanying Miss Laura on her work trips to Hawaii, Maui in February & July and Kauai in October. And for the most part, I've enjoyed the trips. But July is just about the worst time for me... Continue Reading →

Sucia Island Marine State Park

For 20 years I've been a negligent resident of the San Juan Islands in that I've never visited the glory that is Sucia Island Marine State Park. I rectified that this month with a quick two night trip to this Pacific Northwest island paradise. And this trip was way too long in coming and far... Continue Reading →

What kind of Camera should I buy

It Depends. If you're trying to figure out what kind of camera you're wanting or needing to buy, I'd wager that you're beginning your journey into photography or are rekindling an old love. If that's indeed the case you probably haven't really figured out which paths along the way your gonna go down and which... Continue Reading →
