Death Valley 2019 Day Two

It can be very difficult working in the wind with a large format camera, and I certainly had to deal with some pretty strong wind on the second day of my trip to Death Valley. Here’s my video journal from that day!

Death Valley 2019 Day One

Here is my Video Journal from the first day of my January 2019 visit to Death Valley National Park. Thanks so much for watching, and I look forward to sharing the rest of the trip over the next couple months or so.

Zion Fall 2018: Day 9 and Film Reveal

This is the final installment of my Video Journals from my fall trip to Zion. It was on this day that Alan Brock took Justin Lowery, Marty Quinn, and myself on a scenic flight from the St. George airport down to The Grand Canyon, then over Zion National Park. It was absolutely amazing to see these places from the air, and it gave me a whole new appreciation for the park. Thanks as always for watching, and I look forward to sharing my next trip!

Zion Fall 2018: Day Eight

On the morning of day eight, I once again returned to the higher elevation part of the park. The leaves were now beginning to thin, and the floor of the wash was starting to come alive with wonderful fallen leaves and mud textures. If this was my first day in the park, I’m sure I would have found some excellent compositions, but I was over one week into the trip now, and I was starting to get worn out. After a solid week of hiking, scrambling, and searching for subjects, I had a different plan for day eight, and I hope you enjoy the video.

Zion Fall 2018: Day Seven

I spend so much time each day constantly wandering around in search of subjects, and after a week or so, I am thoroughly worn out, and my legs are sore. I decided to take it easy on the morning of day seven, and had a quiet wander through some of my favorite washes. I ended up finding a pretty cool subject, and took one of my favorite photos on the trip. It pays to be aware of your surroundings, and to stay curious about the world around you. You’ll find some pretty cool subjects that way.

Zion Fall 2018: Day Six

I spent a lot of time scouting on my sixth day in Zion. There is something so rewarding about wandering the washes, and seeing what’s around each corner. Here is my video journal from that day.

Zion Fall 2018: Day Three

Here is my video journal from the third day of my fall 2018 trip to Zion. It was certainly a very busy day, and be sure to stick around for the end to hear an interesting story of how one mistake can offset another.

Zion Fall 2018: Day Two

Here is my video from Day 2 of my Fall 2018 visit to Zion National Park. I’ve always made a point of recording one video for each day of my photography trips. Sometimes those videos will show me taking a photo I am proud of, other times — not so much. I prefer this very honest approach to my videos because it tells a more accurate story of the trip. Though I didn’t get any photos I liked on day two, I was very excited to be in Zion, and looked forward to finding more subjects in the days to come.

Zion Fall 2018: Day One

I has been about a month since I returned from my annual Fall trip to Zion. It was a very special trip, and I definitely walked away from it with a set of images that I am very proud of. Here is my Day one video from that trip.

Also, I should mention that I have been working very hard behind the scenes on my 2018 Portfolio Box Set. At the time of writing this, 67 of the box sets have been shipped, and I am working my way through the rest of the preorders. My goal is to have all the preorders arrive in time for Christmas. Thank you so much for your massive support everyone!
