Just finished processing

Images from Teton, Yellowstone, and Crater Lake National Parks. Crater Lake was a Aug. trip which was very warm with thunder showers most afternoons so if you plan a photo trip there you might want to keep that in mind. Great lakes for sea kayaking in both Teton and Yellowstone which was a fall trip around mid to late Sept. Nice as neither park was overly crowded although some nights and early mornings where below freezing in temp. Great sunrise and sunset shooting in both parks with loads of wildlife as well. Got to watch Elk start that annual rut process and actually had a satellite bull bugling in my face 10 feet away at camp in Mammoth Hot Springs. Exciting!

So it looks like Travel Montana is using this image shot at Whitefish Mountain Resort (Big Mountain) as a winter campaign. It is slated to run in Backpacker, 2 issues of Ski Magazine and Delta Sky Magazine. It was shot from more that a quarter mile away with a 500mm lens in the west bowl of the resort. Looks to be gearing up for a pretty good winter.

Got a call about mid last month to see if I was interested in doing a one day photo shoot for Mountain Hardwear, a technical outdoor clothing company. They were interested in finding out if I could scout out a good place to do some lifestyle/winter hiking and snowshoeing. Ummm, lets see, probably want to do that in the Mt. Hood area and hopefully find some capable models/athletes. I think it worked out pretty good for a short notice gig and there was more than enough snow on Hood. Special thanks to the hard work of Kent and Danielle.

Headed down to four corners and southern Utah and northern Arizona this last few weeks to do some shooting. Always a great area in the early spring because the pacific northwest is still usually under winter conditions but you can manage to get in some warm weather biking, hiking and shooting. Well we got biking, hiking and shooting but WARM it was not. 20 degree nights most of the time and never really warmed up even though we got as far as the Grand Canyon.

One of the images from our five day shoot in the San Juan Islands will grace the inside Islands section of the Washington Visitors Guide. Shot from Matia Island after paddling from Sucia that same morning we spent lunch there and headed on to Strawberry Island. The San Juan's are a great sea kayak destination with the smaller islands being a little more remote and somewhat less populated. But then again we where there the week just before the big Memorial Day opening season weekend. More of the Islands here

Just a few spring images appearing in the new Osprey Packs Catalog. Cover is from Arches National Park, a great shooting place just a stones throw from Moab, Utah. Utah is one of my favorite places to visit and explore with a camera. It's usually best in early spring or late fall unless you plan to spend allot of time canyoneering in which case the warmer summer months are good as well. Inside image is from Mt. Rainier another great shooting area located right here in the heart of the pacific northwest. Spray Park and Paradise are a couple of my favorite areas there. See more Utah here or more Mt. Rainier here

I entered this on line contest put on by Princton Tec (who makes cool headlamps) over 4 months ago and never heard anything about it, just figured I never placed and was busy enough I didn't ever check back to their flicker site to see how things ended up. Well last night I decided to see what ended up happening and low and behold I took first over. Thanks for letting me know Princton Tec??!! Anyway just one of many new clips I've added to my travel and recreation stock photo site
