Darwin Wigget is a photographer that I love. His images are amazing and capture the spirit of the wilderness in the Rockies. His winter images capture the essence of winter. Today, he released Winter in the Rockies, an ebook with some of his best winter images and explanations of how he took them. He also [...]

The dreamy look of hot chocolate shot with a Lensbaby Composer and Plastic Optic.
A fun Lensbaby picture from a photo shoot today with Eric Larson. Eric needed some pictures of the gear that he’s using for his Save The Poles Expedition. As you can tell from the picture, polar explorers do have a sense of humor.
D200, Lensbaby Composer, Plastic Optic. I’ve been shooting a bit with the new Lensbaby Composer. BTW: I’m trying out a new look on the website.

After the break a letter that I wrote to Governor Tim Pawlenty today.
Off to Norway for two weeks, so I’ll be out of touch and out of the office until then. I’ll answer email and phone messages when I get back. I have plenty of evenings available in August for Private Instruction and Portraits.
