Idaho Wild Soak Trek 2017

KMC_052517.jpg

 Wow once again what has started as a “little” hike has turned into an expedition (I wouldn’t want it any other way) and I have come up with my biggest photographic exploration yet!  This mission is about Idaho in all it’s Wildness. It’s about large undeveloped connected ...

The draw of this place, the Canyon ...

Grand Canyon Life Coach : Pilot

 GRAND CANYON AS A LIFE COACH

Do you have trouble appreciating the little things in life? Do you feel like you could be a little more grateful? Does your life seem dull, seemingly worthless, and lacking in direction? Is it sometimes hard hard to realize the affects of your decisions ...

 Butte Creek, near Chico CA

Spring Canyon BLM Wild

 So Proud to see Utah’s BLM Wild campaign using my Spring Creek image so well, and for such a deserved cause. 

Spring Creek Canyon carves through the Markagunt Plateau just south of Cedar City, Utah. The slot canyons that ensue rival those of nearby Zion National Park and ...

Trip Report: Tanner Trail to Tatahatso Wash ~ Grand Canyon

IMG_0792_feet.redwall_opp.buckfarm.web.jpg

 In the 15 months since my last solo hike (Toroweap to Pearce), I had nearly forgotten why I go out into the Grand Canyon and walk by myself. There is just a very certain and distinct quality to the experience held by the solo hiker in Grand Canyons Backcountry,  an ...

With and Within

There’s something about this place, the Grand Canyon. It’s in extremes, and you love it or you don’t. You never hear oh yeah, that place is OK. That’s because the people who love Grand Canyon see a little more inside. Something that pulls at them ...

presentations: Conservation photography

 Last week, I was very lucky to give two presentations on the importance of Conservation Photography to create change, especially locally, at Grand Canyon and on the Colorado Plateau.  Humans are highly visual creatures (of course more than others!) and are naturally attracted to beauty. Think about how often you ...

Fresh Snow, fresh year

 2015 started with a rare and very beautiful snow event, which blanketed the Grand Canyon with snow all the way down to the Colorado River, 4500 feet below

The Invitation



  It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are
I want to know if you will risk looking like ...

Yampa River May 2014

 I’ve been told that I would love it ever since I started boating. The Yampa. Wild and free,  it’s the only undamned major tributary of the Colorado River Drainage. Meandering a twisted path through a desolate land of commanding sandstone bluffs and soft desert meadows, the river flowed ...

2014 off to a fresh start

Off to a fresh start in 2014!
Spent the New Year out in the vast open desert, sand dunes, salt water,hoodoos, and starry skies
on assignment in Death Valley National Park, CA

It was really wonderful to go to another park to shoot, a rare but welcome change of ...
