You Have Takeoff?

This is what folks are saying about Takeoff: It’s a good trainer for newbies and if you’re not new to aviation photography, there are many, many useful tips kind ideas. A worthwhile read that every air show photographer should if only just for the common courtesy hints! “Must-have” is a tired cliche’ but I will use it here. If you want to shoot better airshow photos, improve your action photography in general, and maybe even consider moving beyond airshows as an aviation photographer this is your first purchase even before a camera (there is useful buying information in here I wish I had read before I invested thousands in gear). It is like having a one-on-one coach, friend and storyteller all at your disposal. In many circles, Moose is known for his wildlife and landscape work, but from the very first pages of this book, you learn why aviation (WWII in particular) has become a central focus of his work. I received this book on Friday. Wow, what a...

Alaskan Moose Adventure ’18

Alaska Moose 22-27 Oct, 2018 $2190 This will always remain one of my alltime favorite adventures! It’s time to head back to see my northern cousin, the Alaskan Moose. In talking with colleagues up in AK, it would seem that the slow change in temps has changed the habits of the mating in the Chugach. I wanted more opportunities of Moose interacting, we’re going 10 days later in 2018. This is the one Adventure of ours where walking is a part of the shooting at least 3 days of the Adventure. The walk is not strenuous but is about 3 miles one way through some amazing country where you might see grizzly, wolf, and moose all from one spot. We will be taking six shooters on this trip. The price includes instruction, guiding, transportation once you arrive in Anchorage. If you’re interested, give Sharon a call 760.924.8632 (9-5PST M-F). She will ask you a bunch of questions to see if this is the right trip for you because it’s...

Yosemite Winter Wonderland Workshop

Yosemite 21-26 Feb, 2018! Winter in Yosemite is magical that simply has to be witnessed and shared! It’s been over a decade since Sharon & I have spent winter time in Yosemite so off we’re going and we want YOU to share it with us! This is a landscape and wildlife adventure with rocks and rabbits, falls and owls with a coyote and deer thrown in for fun. If you’ve ever been to The Valley in the summer, you will not recognize it in the winter accept such treasures as Half Dome, El Capitan, and Yosemite Falls. But others like Horsetail Falls (the red falls below) Lunar Rainbow and Ice Cone only appear in February. We’re taking eight folks on this adventure. We’ll pick you up in Sacramento so you don’t have to deal with snowy, icy roads and bring you to The Valley and then take you back to the airport. We’ll be sharing with you all our favorite and secret locales for grand views and critters. Might...
