Remy, Henry and I took a nice fall drive today. Here are a few of the images I got.
This sunset photo was taken just outside of Pittsburgh earlier this year. My brother Josh and I had just finished a weekend of shooting urban exploration photographs in Cleveland and Pittsburgh and were on our way back to Toledo, Oh for Easter. We had waited for the sunset in the city on one of the […]
The Walleye Run in the Maumee River in Toledo, Oh is a big event each year. It’s so big, Toledo has named it’s professional hockey team, The Walleyes, who are actually in the playoffs right now. Each year the Walleye come up the Maumee river to spawn and it attracts hundreds of fisherman each year. […]
As I traveled along I-25 north of Denver, I realized the landscape was spattered with these oil drills. I’m always looking for situations where there’s a juxtaposition of nature and man. Although we’re currently completely dependent on oil for transportation, energy and plastics. I hope that one day these oil drills are replaced with renewable […]
Yesterday, I received a neutral density filter that I ordered earlier in the week. I went for a walk along the Platte river with my dog, Kahlo to get this shot. I scouted this spot on a walk with my partner Remy last weekend and I knew it would be the perfect place to try […]
The other day I was heading to Costco for some of the usual staples and I noticed this sunset from the parking lot. I try to make it a habit to always have my camera with me, and on that day, I did. I took about 6 captures and this was my favorite. I used […]
This was taken from Como Cemetery, just outside of Como, Colorado. Como is an old mining town that was very popular because the railroad passed through on it’s way to Breckenridge. At one time the town even had two newspapers, multiple saloons and hotels. Much of the town burned and was never re-built. Now, there […]
This great water tower was along the dirt road that led us to our campsite that was on a dramatic hill. Sleeping was so difficult that we had to move our site the next day. Never camp sleeping on a hill! It made for a good story and this dramatic photograph.
We came across this trailer in Como, Colorado during a camping trip in the area. Although it might not be the ideal structure to live in, the view was amazing! Who chooses to live here? What is the history of this time and weather damaged structure?
I took this image when I first made my fisheye lens in 1998. It was in Northeastern Colorado along I-25 somewhere. Along that whole stretch of highway you see grasslands, windmills, and oil pumps.
I was just amazed by the amount of moss growing in the Pacific Northwest. It grows on anything that doesn’t move! I really loved the juxtaposition of the moss on trees and the moss on concrete. It also reminds me that if we ever destroy ourselves through war or science, nature will take over and […]
I took this photo somewhere in Oregon as we drove home from Portland recently. What made me immediately pull over as I saw this was the juxtaposition of the old rusted building with the wind turbines in the background. I realized that new technologies and our quest to be a “green” world, will ultimately change […]
As we begin our journey back home, we drive out of the mist and start heading west. This photo will always remind me of this trip to the pacific north west. Yesterday we spent the day in Seattle and had perhaps the best seafood meal ever! I will see you all soon.
This summer, my partner, a friend and I took a weekend camping trip to get away from the city for a few days. As I was working with our friend on using her new camera, we came across this scene near our campsite. The photo was taken in the late afternoon on Boreas Pass in […]
When I went camping with friends this summer, this image was one that stood out to me. It was late morning and we were wandering through the woods looking for shots. I pushed my white balance to get the moody aspect of this piece. The light coming through the cold blue trees gives a conflicting […]
This photo was taking at an artist retreat in 2007 in collaboration with photographer Randall Bellows. The red tree was created with an off camera flash with a red gel. I love working with other artists. Often new and exciting ideas out of brainstorming.
Early one morning, my dad and I were driving to work on my parents new house and we passed this scene. I made him turn around and took some time to take a few exposures. The slight fog added to the dreamy feeling of this piece.
This picnic table, framed by the mountains and seemingly afloat on the waters of a placid lake, is straight out of a dream. The fisheye lens blurs the harsh lines of reality and invites us to retreat from the hassels of day-to-day life. The image is like a sphere of serenity–the image a bubble reflects […]
You can get lost staring up into the night sky. In this photo, the house feels like it is floating in an ethereal plane that glows and shimmers with light cast from millions of miles away. The city frequently obscures the stars, so I was mesmerized during an artist retreat to Conifer where this photgraph was taken. Prints […]
