Gravity assisted MTB

I was shooting three days in July 2018 event called Sappee Bike Fest. Here are some photos of downhill, chainless and enduro races.

Fast paced outdoors sports are my favorite thing to shoot and these definetely qualify in to that category.

I do often go for tight shots but I try to remember to take some wider shots as well even...

Double Dandy

A pair of Dandelions I photographed a while back. They were growing behind a massive fallen tree, the trunk made for an easy neutral background. Their stems were seemingly lit from within from the diffused sunlight barely peeking through the partly cloudy sky. Nikon d7200 f/16 1/60 ISO400

Product Review: ShutterFly

At or about 12:30 pm est that beam of light was making it's way into our basement, Purely on a whim, I grabbed my 30 year old teddy bear bookend and placed it near the beam of light....

Opinion on Crops


I rarely shoot images of people, but had an opportunity last weekend to shoot some shots of my buddy, Will, while we snowshoed in Colorado. I took a shot of him that I really like and would appreciate your feedback. I'm torn if I should crop the image or leave it as is.

Please let me know what you think.


Presenting 'Snow Pines'

A bit of departure from my normal work. This is an image I took a while back and love the strong bold blacks set against the canvas of fresh snow.

As the community is diverse I'd be interested to hear what others think (all comments whether good or bad accepted as gifts), especially what you may like or hate in the image.
