NOTHING IMPROVES SUCCESS LIKE PERSISTENCE

Edward Weston’s Pepper #30 is the perfect example of what it takes to achieve perfection. There have been multiple occasions where I have returned to a location dozens of times to achieve the desired result. Professional photographers continue to exercise this principle (even with Photoshop).

SPECIAL THANKS TO GUNNAR RACING

Thank you Kevin and Sharon Jeannette for giving me access to your camp, a crew and parking pass, and allowing me to store my gear in your trailer. I had a wonderful time and look forward to working with you again soon.

MORE COMPOSITIONAL KEYS

Careful composition and patience are a location photographer’s best friend. Especially when it comes to nature and photojournalism.

PHOTOGRAPHERS HAVE A COMPOSITIONAL KEY

It’s built into their brain. That’s part of what makes them unique.

It could be a perfect triangle (Sam Abell), a figure 8 (Ernst Haas), or something in between.

Here’s mine. See if you can find it.

SUMMER IS FOR CAR SHOWS

That’s what summer holiday mornings are for. Rolling out of bed, driving your favorite vehicle over to the local gathering, seeing your friends, and checking out the scene. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

THE LONG WAY ROUND

When you’ve been a full-time pro for as long as i have, you end up seeing a lot of stuff. Most of it is positively amazing. Like the first time you see the sun rise as an ocean storm clears in the middle of nowhere. Some of it is not, like professional jealousy.

There is always room at the top, though. And if you are lucky enough to have a partner that understands your journey – and you have talent, make smart choices, and are persistent – you can actually get there. Thanks, honey.

BONNEVILLE SPEED WEEK 2018

I’ve just returned from a trip to Utah’s Bonneville Speedway where I filmed Tom Woodford attempting a record breaking run in his 3-liter dual MFI turbo powered 1975 911 on the salt flats.

He’s now in the 175 MPH Club with 180 & 192 MPH times!

It was a great week hanging out with Tom and the crew, including Walt Walters – plus my good friend, “the original outlaw”, Gary Emory! Look for more photos and a film in 2019.
