Why I Love Wildlife Photography

When reflecting upon my photography I’ve always considered myself a landscape photographer. Justifiably so, since most of the time when I’m out photographing my primary goal is to photograph a landscape. I became a photographer and fell in love with photography because of my pursuit to capture photos of landscapes. First and foremost I am a landscape photographer, but I have another love and that’s...

Winter Photography In Grand Teton - March 2019

Landscape photography in the winter has always been something I’ve struggled with. Roads are closed, camping becomes significantly more challenging, and staying in bed always sounds much more appealing when the weather gets cold. For these reasons and more, when winter comes, my photography always takes a step...

Ever since I've seen pictures of Glacier National Park I knew I had to visit this place and photograph it. Glacier is such a unique and beautiful location that I was extremely excited to visit for the first time. Our drive to Glacier goes through...

Photographing Iconic Locations

Delicate Arch, the Tetons, and Moraine Lake are all popular locations that photographers flock to. In landscape photography it’s hard to avoid photographing these famous spots. Even though most photographers have photos of these places in their portfolio, photographers tend to complain that photographing iconic locations is bad. It’s a popular belief among photographers that photographing iconic locations...

Moab Adventure- November 2018

For the long three day weekend on Veteran’s Day, Katie and I decided to head to Moab, Utah to photograph some of the beautiful landscapes of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. In what has become a little bit of a tradition for us, this is our third year in a row going to Moab at about this time of year. Moab is such an amazing and unique place with endless photo opportunities. The rock...

If you've ever talked with a photographer you know how much they obsess over good light. And while many of those photographers might tell you how important it is to have good light, I believe it's even more important to know how to find good images even when there is "bad light". Going out to photograph a place you've wanted to visit for a long time only to have no light can be pretty disappointing, especially...

Fall has finally arrived. People from all around the United States and the world are gathering to see the changing of the autumn colors in Colorado. Colorado might be one of the best places in the world to see fall colors with an abundance of huge golden aspen groves.
