On the Ice – 08.21.07

Off the boat in Juneau and up to Mendenhall Glacier where we were treated to great glacier views and photographs and a bunch of Black Bears. I’m writing this after a long day, having two chocolate Martinis and on a notebook about to run out of battery power. So….it all looks good to me at this time of day….tomorrow could be a totally different Photos captured by D2Xs, 200f2VR on Lexar digital...

Hello Land Lubbers! 08.21.07

We’re just about to make land, Juneau Alaska. We’re on this killer cruise with Cruising Through Life having one hell of a good time. I’m here with my good friend, Vinnie Versace, Dave Cross and Laurie Excell. And, we’ve got a great, great group of folks! This is the pilot boat bringing in the pilot taking us into dock at Juneau. As internet is available, I’ll be posting. Be sure to check back on Thursday! Photo captured by D200, 17-55AFS on Lexar digital...

It’s up to you?! – 08.17.07

This just came to my desk. It was started by the father, and it’s hasn’t ended yet with the son. YOU have to make the call if the wild heritage left to you, should be left to the next generation. The Northern Spotted Owl and the ancient forests where it lives are under attack. The Bush Administration is planning to repeal protections for the Northwests iconic old-growth forests and significantly reduce the Spotted Owls habitat. Please submit comments to help the Northern Spotted Owls. The deadline to submit comments is next Friday, August 24.     Earlier this year, the Bush Administration released the Draft Recovery Plan for the Northern Spotted Owl. This plan will undermine all the work that has been done in the last fifteen years to protect the owl and the old-growth forests where it lives. The original recovery team that authored the plan agreed to work together to base the plan on science. This group was then replaced by high-level Bush Administration officials who wrote...

How Rude! – 08.14.07

There we were, at the edge of Lake George (just a couple minutes from our home) in great light working with a beautiful model, Pariva, when this Black Bear mom (who is eating way too much human food) and her spring cubs came tripping down the shore and onto our set. The cubs checked out the tripod, mom rummaged through the case of strobe gear and sneezed on my Lastolite panel before moving on. That wasn’t the rude thing, they were just being bears and we’re quite use to bears. The rude thing was the hordes of people following them. They had the family going along at quite a clip trying to stay ahead of the pack mentality. Jake got some real nice shots of one of the cubs heading up the tree before they went into the shade and around the corner of the lake. After about 20mins, the crowd lost interest in the bears and our model and we could get back to work. Photo captured by...
