Hang a Louie for Ubehebe

“Check your travel plans–we’re snowed in. Hopefully the roads will be cleared before you guys get here!” That call came from my friend, a wonderful photographer, Don Hurzeler. Now if Don had called from Iceland or the Alps that would have been one thing. But he was calling from Stovepipe Wells Village in Death Valley…

Am I There Yet?

How does an artist know when a piece is finished? This is a question I’ve been thinking about since I read a quote by German artist Gerhard Richter, whose astounding work ranges from photorealistic to abstract expressionist: “At the beginning, I feel totally free, and it’s fun, like being a child. The paintings can look…

Dredging for Photo Gold

Recently, I’ve been combing through megabytes of photographs that I’ve taken over the past few years, looking for images worth processing. Now, I’d love to say that this is part of a brilliant strategy: take photos, wait a while, then work on the ones that I spared from the delete key. Such an approach would…

Reboot 2018: The Intersection of “What Is” and “What If”

If you’ve been following this blog, you might have noticed that I’ve been on hiatus for the past four months.  During that time, I’ve been regrouping as I expand my work from traditional photography into abstracts and composites. It took me a while to get comfortable with the idea of taking and making images of…

She Loves Me: When Mother Nature Shines Favorably… Back in February, when I visited Death Valley and the surrounding desert areas, I didn’t realize how fortunate I was that the weather cooperated  perfectly. During the day, the temperature was mainly in the low 70s. At night, the thermometer dipped down to the mid-forties and then to…

Water at Drinkwater’s: H20 Extremes Exhibit

I’m pleased to announce my upcoming exhibit, “H20 Extremes.” The show juxtaposes images devoid of water—such as those taken in Death Valley—with photographs that feature water in abundance. The latter include images of the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon in Iceland and, much closer to home, close up shots of raindrops collecting on spider web filaments and…

Gear Note: Back Saver, File Saver

MINDSHIFT GEAR CAMERA BACKPACKI rarely write much about camera gear, but I’m particularly excited about two photography products I used during my trip to Death Valley in February. Both helped make the adventure especially enjoyable and productive. (Note: neither of the items were provided for review by their respective manufacturers.) First, there’s the MindShift Gear…
