I live next to the ocean and love to fish.My greatest skill as a photographer is a constant desire to capture moments to share and build memories that will keep forever.When I go out on a boat, I view each trip as an opportunity to use my photos to tell the story of our days adventure.Some excursioins tend to be filled with greater tales then others, but there is alway a story to tell.I am always at the ready with my camera, and am starting to do more with video to combine both photos and... continue reading

Years ago my dad was out ice fishing in his dark house in the middle of January. He was in about twenty feet of water and this particular winter the water was exceptionally clear. He could clearly see the bottom of the lake and everything on it. He had been staring at the bottom of the lake for about an hour when he saw something crawling along the bottom of the lake. It was a frog. continue reading
I don’t usually get up early on a Sunday, or any other day if I can help it, but last Sunday was different.I had wanted to go to Weymouth Harbour, to take some photos for a long time. I needed to go before there were too many people about and, when the weather was fine. It would be perfect.I set my alarm for 0600hrs ( I know that is not early for some of you seasoned photographers but……), grabbed a cup of tea and left the house at 0630hrs.I arrived in Weymouth (located on the South Coast... continue reading
On a warm, sunny, calm morning in 1948, my mom, her Uncle Reuben, Aunt Olga, and her cousin’s wife JoAnne, were staying at a cabin on Fish Trap Lake in Minnesota. They were at the cabin for two weeks and it would be non-stop fishing. In fact they fished so much that when they were on shore if they looked at a spec on the floor it would bob up and down. Mom said that when she went to bed that the bed would rock like the boat. They were up early and had a quick breakfast of bacon and eggs. Aunt... continue reading
The year was 2005 in the month of February. My dad and I were out ice fishing on a lake in northern Wisconsin. We had caught a few small crappies and sunfish, and then dad’s bobber went down fast. I was thinking that it was a northern but hoping it was a bass. Dad was really pulling on the line so I was thinking it was a nice size fish.The fish was almost at the top of the ice hole and the line broke. Dad put his fingers together and as fast as he could put his hand down into the hole and... continue reading

I'm almost literally jumping out of my skin right now I'm so excited about a trip I'm doing this weekend and what it means for stock photography for me!Last year, my good friend and I decided to make a trip to the Deschutes River and float a long section of water, sleeping overnight on the banks of the river.We had such a great time, this has now become an annual trip. I learned a ton last year in relation to logistical aspects of the trip: fishing, floating, camping, rattlesnake counting,... continue reading
As I'm writing this, Thanksgiving is one week away, I've been raking leaves, chopping wood and thinking all of the cool photography equipment Santa could bring me for Christmas.In fact a lot of my recent uploads to Dreamstime have been Christmas and winter images like this one of falling snowflakes:But most designers and stock image buyers are not thinking about next month, they are thinking four to six months down the road.I used towork for BYTE magazine which was a monthly magazine... continue reading
I love taking photographs and spend lots of time checking the weather and looking for fun places to go in search of subjects. And that is perhaps the best part about being a photographer, having a wonderful excuse to go places and check out new events just because it might be a great shoot.Last weekend I decided to go down to the beach just to see what might be lurking about and found an avid group of fishermen trying to catch the last of seasonal salmon run. I talked to lots of them, followed... continue reading
Santiago is an old Cuban fisherman abandoned by good fortune. They have become eighty-four the days he failed to take any fish. Manolo, the boy who accompanied him as a child in the boat, where he taught everything about the job of fisherman and against whom harbors a deep affection, was forced by parents to fish on another boat. By now everyone thinks an old man without resources Santiago struck by bad luck. He lives alone in his little hut in the village abandoned by everybody, disillusioned and... continue reading
