May 15, 2023: Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington 2024 Calendars
While I am asked regularly when I will sell a calendar of my photography it's not something I plan to do any time soon. That is why I am excited to share yet another collaborative effort with my good friends that make up the Photo Cascadia crew. This time it's beautifully designed 2024 calendars by Workman Publishing for the states of Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington. Pre-order available now.
March 1, 2023: Out of Olympic Conference
I am very excited to be invited as an instructor again for another Out of Chicago conference. This time we will be visiting the lush rainforests and the rugged beaches of the Olympic National Park area. With this variety of landscape there will be no shortage of great photography opportunities. Given places like the Hoh rainforest can bet up to 12 feet of rain a year it will be interesting to see what weather we get for the conference. I will be packing all my rain gear!
February 7, 2023: Portfolio Reviews
For years now I have helped lead image review sessions in group settings such as workshops. The feedback from participants looking forward to them has always been positive. I have also had requests to provide a more comprehensive photo reviews on an individual level. I am now happy to say this service is available for purchase on my website. Check out this page for more details.
January 16, 2023: Photographing Trees and Forests - Out of Chicago LIVE 2023
My main presentation at Out of Chicago LIVE this year is covering tree and forest photography. Even in the most beautiful forests finding a composition from the smallest scene to something wider can take patience and effort along with an open mind to what you might find. I will share my successes and challenges with forest and tree photography over the years. As someone who grew up surrounded by trees as a child I continue to be in awe of what they offer us even beyond photography. Register for the conference here.

October 28, 2022: Out of Oregon Conference
In October I was asked to join as an instructor for the Out of Oregon conference on the Oregon coast put on by Out of Chicago. This event had ~70 participants and a dozen instructors from across the globe. It was a phenomenal experience and we could not have asked for better weather. 5 straight days this time of year with zero rain was amazing. The energy and excitement from everyone attending was truly infectious. Thank you to Out of Chicago for inviting me and for all the work done by the Out of Chicago team.
October 22, 2022: Photo Cascadia Podcast Interviews
As part of the Washington Evergreen book release with my Photo Cascadia friends, we have been invited on a few podcasts to talk about the book, along with what exactly is Photo Cascadia. Here are a couple of
the most recent interviews if you want to take a listen. Worth noting is that we normally only have 4 to 6 on each podcast, getting all 7 of us is nearly impossible with our varying schedules and time zones. It has only happened for one podcast interview so far.

February 10, 2022: Collaboration With Portland Puzzle Company
As an artist that licenses my work for use to different types of businesses it's a welcome surprise to be working with a company that is not only local to the city I live in but also in the same neighborhood! Portland Puzzle Company specializes in not shockingly... puzzles. They have licensed a couple of my photos available for purchase from their website. You might also run across them at retail locations.
Both "Ocean Flowers" from the Oregon Coast and "Hidden Entry" from Kauai, Hawaii were chosen.

December 1, 2021: New Website
After over a decade of using different premade template sites for my photography business I decided it was time to move to something more professional. Jack at Widerange Galleries did an excellent job. I am very happy with the new website, which is a lot more than I could say with past sites, no matter how much work I put into them. Please peruse the new site, if you haven't already, and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Thank you for stopping by.
