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 […]


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 […]

I hope this finds […]


FRESHWATER FRENZY

Florida has it’s fair share of water use disputes due to relatively steady long-term population growth coupled with a fairly robust agricultural industry.  Both interests exert heavy demands on the State’s freshwater supply and they increasingly find themselves competing over a resource which is becoming more scarce each day.  As a Director of Sea to […]


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 […]
