The incredible Na Pali coast as seen from off the coast of Kauai.

A Trip Down The Na Pali- Lost World

It’s pretty amazing.  In the 6+ years I’ve lived on Kauai I’ve seen the Na Pali coast from the water, twice.  Once I was actually kayaking and focused on self preservation, the other time was a couple of months after I moved out to the island.  So…it’s safe to say this was a long time […]

Queens bath at sunset with a small waterfall in the foreground.

Queens Bath at Sunset

“Bathed In Light” (unreleased) I find it funny for as many times as I’ve been there and photos I’ve taken around it….I have very few of Queens Bath itself.  One of my favorite locations on Kaua’i it can be tremendously beautiful, or extremely dangerous (think 30′ waves).   On this particular afternoon I was out on […]

Lightning across the San Luis valley as seen from Great Sand Dunes National Park

Great Sand Dunes National Park….fireworks?!

  So about mid August I had the opportunity to visit the incredible place known as Great Sand Dunes National Park.  This crazy place is located south of Denver and just a bit west in the San Luis Valley.  Nestled up against 14k foot mountains, these sand dunes cover 30 sq miles and rise, at […]


To Infinity…And Beyond…

    For those of you who dont remember…I had a massive data corruption in January and have been mostly out of commission since then working normally. Yes, I had a Drobo (4 drive RAID backkup) and also was pushing to the cloud via CrashPlan. However the corruption was also pushed to the cloud before […]

A dry stream runs through a bamboo forest in the Kohala Mountains of the Big Island.

Killer Bamboo…Big Island!

  Recently I had the opportunity to return to the Big Island for a 5 day trip for a friend’s wedding and some more shooting/scouting.  The wedding itself was a very special event with some great friends as well and the weather played a roll in making it all the more interesting.  With rain/fog and […]

Dramatic light and a waterfalls photographed from behind.

A Tale Of Two Falls

“A Tale Of Two Falls” (unreleased)   Another fun title…and project.  This one meandering through my mind for years.  Unsure of what to expect or what would be possible just knowing there was a chance of something… Getting a chance to head down to the falls a couple of months prior I was stymied by […]

Intense sunset color as seen between two rocks along the north shore of Kauai

Getting After It

  Had the opportunity yesterday (6/5/14) to go photograph one of my favorite spots on the island.  One that I havent really visited much in the recent past.  The sky that afternoon was a bit hazy but overcast with high clouds.  Without seeing much of the horizon I made a comment to a fellow visiting […]

Zodiacal light over Mauna Kea and observatories.

2015 Workshops!

Dramatic sunrise along the Hana coast, Maui.

Here today…gone to Maui

  Recently had the chance to spend a few days on Maui for the first time in about 3.5 years.  Probably a bit too long…and with many projects to shoot and still discover, it was a great time.  Had the benefit of a great friend/tour guide and some unexpected surprises.  Needless to say I have […]


Salt Lake City in Blue

  On my recent trip to Salt Lake City the afternoon I arrived look promising for sunset.  Having lived in and around SLC for the better part of 3 years (a lifetime ago) I never did shoot any good cityscapes.  In fact I had just only had the camera in my hand a year when […]
