The Jekyll and Hyde Photographer

You remember the old story about Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde don't you?  Well, if not...  Read a book...

Anyway, Dr. Jekyll was this mild mannered doctor who develops a potion to seperate himself from his darker side but in doing so he started losing control of himself...  this would be Mr. Hyde.  Sometimes photographers find themselves in the same predicament as Dr. Jekyll.  

Leaving Nikon for Sony

For nearly two decades I have shot with the Nikon camera system starting first with slide film back in the early 2000s. Over the years I have been nothing but happy with the cameras I have owned. These include the FM2, F100, D200, D700, D4, D500, and the D850. The list of lenses is actually longer than this. However, the time has come for the sun to set on my time with Nikon.

2020 Great Smoky Mountain National Park Workshop

The Great Smoky Mountains contain sweeping panoramic views of ancient mountains, rushing streams, cascading waterfalls, and old growth hardwood forests. These are each wonderful sites to behold and represent just a hint of the photographic opportunities that await. Come join us as we explore this unique ecosystem with cameras in hand. For me, this is home, it is where I grew up and where I first fell in love with photography. Beth and I will be right there beside you to provide photographic recommendations and instruction.

2019 Grand Teton Photography Workshop

The Grand Teton National Park for lack of better words is well... grand.  The peaks jut straight up out of a relatively flat area allowing for pristine views of the Grand Teton portion of the Rocky Mountains.  One of the most iconic images of the Tetons comes from Ansel Adams at the Snake River Overlook.  This image is one of many which have inspired photographers young and old.  Snake River Overlook is one of the many places we will visit as we chase the light.

The Grand Teton National Park

Well, I thought for sure I would write an article every day while shooting here in the Grand Teton National Park.  Turns out exhaustion is a real thing for Nature Photographers.  The latest I have slept here is 4am with the earliest at 2am so please forgive me for the lack of writing.  Trust me, there is so much on the way.
