Many of us have photography as a hobby and also big commitments to our family activities. This often involves driving family members to sports practices, music lessons, appointments or other events when they need a ride and say "can you please pick me up in an hour".So, what to do with the hour? I could surf the net on my phone, go for coffee, or drive home and do a chore for 15 minutes and then drive back. Or?I decided to be a micro-explorer.With camera in tow, I decided to explore the... continue reading

I provide a special focus on nature and travel, but also find beauty in mechanical things, even ugly things. Not all beauty is visual. I work hard to find just the right frame and angle, and do almost no post-processing. I will often return to a location to try to photograph it again if the lighting is better, or will wait for clouds to clear so that I have direct sunlight. continue reading

Lavenders, sage,... continue reading
Spring is here! Summer is approaching! Let's go outside and play for a while!Remember how exciting summers were as a kid? Running in and out of the house, chasing down the ice cream truck and smacking at mosquitoes nibbling on our ankles -- ah, now those were the good old days! But being stock photographers, we have a license to embrace spring and summer with a childlike zeal, having the same kind of fun we used to have every time we ventured outdoors.When it comes to getting the most... continue reading
