Timelapse Photography in the Brazilian Pantanal

The sky above the Brazilian Pantanal really lends itself to night photography.


DOWN TO THE BAY OF PIGS

The Bay of PIgs

After departing the Isle of Youth, we flew back to Havana and caught a ride down to the Bay of Pigs.  Yes, that Bay of Pigs! For some reason, I always imagined it as a dirty backwater hiding a dirty past.  Fortunately, reality could not have been further away from my imagination. Below are a […]


THE ISLE OF YOUTH

Cuban flag on the dive vessel Bucanero, Isle of Youth, Cuba.

Leaving Havana and heading south was our task for day two of the trip.  We drove to southern coast of Cuba to board a boat for the 4.5 hour ride out to the Isle of Youth.  It is there that Sea to Shore Alliance and its U. of Havana partners have been doing manatee captures […]


Clean Up the Clark Fork

I enjoy seeing one of my favorite images being used to support an effort by the Clark Fork Coalition to clean up the Clark Fork River.

FEELING THANKFUL I AM NOT A SCALED SARDINE

Had another great day of fishing/diving with my cousins this past weekend.  At one point we spotted this baitball about 17 miles offshore.  At first Tim and I were excited to jump in and photograph the scene until we noticed the dozen or so blacktips voraciously feeding alongside all the spanish mackerel.  After watching the […]

WEEK TWO

Happy Tuesday! We are now moving into images made during week two of our trip.  This week began with a swim amongst the Dusky Dolphin pods that reside year round off of the Kaikoura Peninsula on the northeastern portion of the South Island.  Everyone should experience this swim at least once in their lives.  We […]


100% PURE NEW ZEALAND

Awaroa Estuary at Night

The New Zealand Tourism Board uses the tagline “100% Pure New Zealand” to attract visitors.  Quite a bold statement from a small island nation in the South Pacific.  I’m pleased to say that New Zealand did not disappoint us in any respect.  After a month of traveling around the South Island we were still fully […]


Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a safe NYE and a spectacular 2013!  Two photos below were taken last week in the Devil’s Den Spring near Williston, Florida.


Flourishing Ocean

  Living most of the year in a warm water climate has profoundly affected my perception about cold water diving.  Why would I purposefully enter frigid water when I know how enjoyable it is diving in the tropical ocean? One major reason for taking the frigid plunge is that in most instances the world’s temperate […]


SOME MODELS ARE EASY…

Large Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) in Emerald Lake, Montana

Photographing models is often challenging.  Diverse personalities abound among this demographic; the aggressive, the ellusive, the timid and the overconfident are all represented.  Many of the models with whom I work arrive on the job with a bad attitude or simply fail to arrive.  However, I have recently worked with a delightful group of models […]

CROWN OF THE CONTINENT

Hey there. I hope this message finds you in the middle of your own summer adventure. I recently had the great fortune of hiking around Glacier NP with two good friends/fellow RMSP teaching assistants (Ben Reed and Dan Doran). Over three days we experienced what we all agreed was a quintessential back country hike.  A […]

Schizophrenic Sky


BIODIVERSITY ILLUSTRATED

Biological diversity in an environment as indicated by numbers of different species of plants and animals is widely regarded as a positive feature.  Yet it is a concept that is often discussed, but seldom seen in today’s world.  Hopefully the following photographs will help illustrate the beauty underlying this important concept. I hope this finds […]


Let us gather and watch the Florida boy freeze…

Amazingly, it’s almost time for Cindy and I to shed our Montana ties and flee the cold like trueblooded Floridians:)  Already the morning bike ride to work seems much colder.  I know that soon it will be the gloves and not far thereafter the snow. At least that is how I recall our time here […]


Summer Fun in Montana…

Hey there!  I hope this post finds you and your loved ones well.  I was recently reminded of the somewhat embarrasing level of delinquency I’ve exhibited by not updating this website.  Since the last post I’ve implemented some major life upgrades, not the least of which was a temporary move back to Missoula, Montana to […]


Bonaire is Something Special

It’s quite easy to conjure up a lot of wonderful things to say about a dive trip to the island of Bonaire.  That was my impression after hearing others discuss prior trips they have taken there over the years.  Cindy and I just returned from our first trip to Bonaire and I now understand what […]


Slow down and LOOK!
