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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Remote Southern Utah

On The Road (Utah)

  When I get to do my road trips around the country there tends to be a lot of driving.  Much of that through very pretty places.  When I’m driving my general thought process is ‘get there as fast as possible’.  However when in these circumstances the opposite is generally true.  Well…at least it’s fast […]

Magical slot canyon light

Getting slotted…Pt 1 of ? – Southern Utah

  Just getting back from Utah and had myself an adventure!  Last year, around the same time, I found myself in Southern Utah for 5 days.  Exploring the truly incredible landscape that is that part of the world.  One in particular slot canyon in Escalante National Park eluded me.  Hiking by myself the waist deep […]

Tales From The Top…Of The World

  Ok…maybe not the world.  But it sure feels like it when standing on the top of Mauna Kea, the largest mountain in the world (top to bottom) and rising 13,800 ft above the ocean below.  I could write for a long time about how I’ve been dreaming for 7 years of skiing this unique […]
