As another year comes to a close and we prepare to spend quality time with the family and friends, I wanted to take a quick short and sweet few seconds to thank every one of you for the support, the warmth, the encouragement, the inspiration, and the all around positive energy you’ve brought into my life over the past 365 days. It’s been truly humbling and everything that has kept me going, encouraging me to get out and make another picture, write another post, keep doing the thing. I can only hope that I’m able to reciprocate even a small part of that. Happy holidays all you beautiful people. Click "read more" to find a couple of my favorites from the past 12 months. They’re high-enough-resolution versions for your desktops and mobile thingies and whatnots.Read More
It’s just one of those things. One of those crazy things. While every lens wipe and filter might look the same to the untrained eye, photographers obsess over every detail down to the thousandth of a second. No exaggeration. Literally. Thousandths of a second. So, while the heart might be in the right place, there are certain things that, if you give a photographer as a gift, may do more harm than good. Here are 5 of those things:Read More
In case you’ve been (understandably) hiding under a rock the past 5 days, you’re already aware…it’s that time of year!! The holiday shopping madness has begun.

The holiday season is upon us, and chances are, somewhere in your family there’s a budding photographer. You’ve been watching as they hone their eye through an iPad lens or the pictures that mysteriously populate your smartphone’s camera roll when your phone goes missing for a few hours (or days). And now, you’re realizing this is a skill and talent they might want to hone further. It’s time to step up their game and begin their gradual and comfortable transition into some more serious hardware. Here are 6 of the best cameras for budding photographers in your family.Read More
Whether we’re ready to admit it or not, the holidays are upon us. I tried as long as I could to ignore the names of the months passing by on the calendar, but, well, once Daylight Savings Time hit, denial turned to grief turned to acceptance turned to ‘ok, fine, let’s do this thing!’ Anyhow, chances are there’s a photographer in your family or group of friends that you’ll have to shop for, and while we're certainly a famously finicky bunch, I guarantee you, there’s still something that photographer “needs.” So here’s a list of things that will help turn that psychosis-inducing task of figuring it out into the easiest checkmark on your shopping list. Here are 10 fail-proof gifts for photographers in your circles.Read More
So the holidays are here and shopping is poo! So let me take care of that for you! Screw the malls, the parking space road rage rush, running around like a madman or woman with minutes to go before closing time only to grab the last box of cologne that's just going to sit under the sink until next year anyway. Instead, order my stuff!! Stuff that they'll actually use every single day and won't break the bank. Mugs, laptop skins, iPad cases, iPhone cases, framed prints, canvas prints, throw pillows (yes...throw pillows!). Even the cards!! I got you! And you don't even have to leave your couch to do it.
Just go to my ‘BUY’ page and it’ll break down what’s available at each of the following outlets: Society6 (where there's free shipping on selected products until Cyber Monday), Fine Art America, and 500px. And if you have ANY questions, or have a special request for an image on a product, please feel free to contact me!
Here's just a few examples, many many more on those links! Happy Couch Shopping (hopefully)!!
So this week gave me reason for a good bit of excitement and had to share it somewhere, so figured my own site is a darned good place to do it. Last week I posted about some of my images on various products that I’ve made available to cure your holiday shopping woes. As a result of that, and the wonderful connections and relationships that I’ve been blessed to make and build over the years, especially through Google Plus, I’ve sold my very first ever physical art print.
The wonderful Shonie from the town of Musselburgh in the Scottish countryside will soon have a piece of Rocky Mountain National Park hanging in her vicinity as she was incredibly kind enough to order a metal print of my image “Just In Time” through my FineArtAmerica store, along with a pack of cards adorned with the image "The Second Pool."
Shonie, just wanted to give you a public and emphatic ‘THANK YOU!’ for your kindness and your continued support...that means so much, you have no idea! I'm flattered and humbled at the same time. Thank you thank you THANK you!
So the holidays are coming and shopping sucks! So here I come to save the day! Throw pillow covers, mugs, laptop skins, iPad cases, iPhone cases, framed prints, canvas prints. Even the cards!! I’m all over it! So screw the lines, screw the big-box stores, screw the merry madness, and support the little guy…me…all without leaving your couch. I’ve chosen several of my images that seem to have gotten the best response over the past year and put them on various items using some really cool services like Fine Art America, 500px, and Crated. Just go to my ‘BUY’ page and it’ll break down what’s available at each outlet. And if you have ANY questions, or if there are any of my other images that you’d like to see on certain products, please do not hesitate to contact me! Here's just a few examples, many many more on those links! Happy Couch Shopping (hopefully)!!
