Working on New Title with the 800mm

Click Here to Zoom In There is one thing in this world I’m the best at, and that’s sitting on a rock staring at a hole in the ground for 18hrs to get the photo. Well, today I started a new pursuit, all the same thing except looking at a nest at the top of a tree. Other than the pointed rock pushing my underwear in a place it ought not be, it was a great, great perch to watch life! I started working a Red-tailed Hawk nest this week not too far from our home. I’ve not photographed a raptor nest in detail for its duration ever in my career and I’m very excited this just might be the year. And to say it’s a challenge and one I’m already really liking is an understatement! The first challenge is reaching my perch to see into their perch. As you can see in the photo, I’ve gotta hike up the road and than climb up the hill to be...

“Can You Help Me with Some Grizzly Bear Photos?”

This is the question that is coming in A LOT right now, folks getting ready for summer Grizzly Bears adventures. It just so happens I do have A LOT about Grizzly Bears already here on the website (just type in Grizzly Bear in the search engine). We also have a special edition on the iPad version of the BT Journal on Grizzly Bears. With over 46k images of Griz in my files, we’ll be working them more this summer, they are a great critter but you need to have knowledge in the back of your head before heading out to work with them. I’ve tried to share all I know in these resources, here for you to learn...

Short Lens Wildlife Course – 2 Free Seats Available!

Yeap, we have TWO Free seats available for our upcoming Short Lens Wildlife Course made possible by the generosity of our two workshop patrons. We are more than aware that most don’t have a 800m, 600mm, or even a 500mm but want to be successful in wildlife photography. For the first 6yrs of my career, I didn’t have a big lens either yet as I write in my book Captured, many of the techniques I use today came from those first six years. It’s these techniques and a whole lot more we go cover in great depth in the class. Many remember Alvin, the Allen’s Hummingbird (not shown up yet this year) that lit up the airwaves. This shot was taken with a simple 300mm lens, a focal length most have today in their zooms and putting them right in the thick of wildlife photography. So, send an email to ME with why you should receive the scholarship to the Course and what you’ll do with what you learn,...

Red River Pecos Notecards

I needed to create some notecards for a client, so off to research I went. Now I needed real notecards, not the kind I make for myself as simple notes, a piece of Enhance Matt folded in half. There is really only one player and when I saw the quality, I can see why. I went with Red River’s 96lbs Pecos Notecard stock and man, does it rock! Red River makes it real simple, providing Photoshop templates, printer tips (they were dead on on how to print with the Epson 4900) and even the envelopes. The final product looked and felt VERY expensive and that’s what I was shooting for. So, wanna do notecards yourself, Red River is top shelf all the way! On a side note, I wanted the lighting on the product shot to look like it’s window light even though I shot it with the Profoto Acute 2400. I’m very pleased with the...
