Chickens & Grouse, Oh My!

Winter is giving way to spring, the grasslands of the midwest have an erie and haunting sound floating over them as the sun rises. You can see in the faint light little bundles floating over the landscape, every so often colliding and bursting into the sky and then landing again. A right of spring that’s as old as the grasslands celebrating the longer hours in the day. A dance so celebrating new life it was imitated by Native Americans. K&M Adventures is heading to Nebraska next April 4-7 2016 to photograph Prairie Chicken and Sharp-tailed Grouse on their leks. This very unique Adventure is all about birds. Besides the Prairie Chicken and Sharp-tailed Grouse, we work the Sandhill Cranes on the Platt and many other bird species of Nebraska. We might even stop for some amazing landscape scenes you’ll find nowhere else. The Adventure is limited to JUST 6 shooters (sorry, no spouses) for this four day adventure. The price is $2695 which includes lodging, breakfast and dinner, transportation...

Great Weekend Reading

There are many ways to juice up your photography. The best of course is behind the camera. The next is reading and filling your mind and soul with inspiration and ideas. I have two option for you for your weekend. The first is Photography FUNdamentals and it’s TOTALLY FREE!!! (thanks to our friends at B&H) Why is the title Photography FUNdamentals? Because photography has fundamentals the have to be learned and be FUN! Here’s a little more about this iBook that has had over 5000 installs … It’s interactive, filled with videos and photos, BTS, everything! And it’s free so you have nothing to loose and everything to gain. Grab it! Taking Flight is more than a iBook on just taking plane pictures. The eight chapters covers everything from gear to light, working with pilots to air to air strategies. There is also a chapter on finishing in Photoshop. While I’m biased, I think there’s so much here to fuel your photography, they’re a must have set of books....

My Workflow

It’s a continual question, “What’s your workflow?” As my boys will say, I’m just a machine because I get through my images so bloody fast. How fast? A 4000 image air to air shoot shot in the afternoon will be by bedtime, edited, filed, renamed and backed up. How do I do it so fast? There are two main factors, the first and main one is, I only take those images I like. This is really, really important. When I watch folks go through their images, they spend a helluva a lot of time looking at this or that images, cropping, moving sliders, wondering if they like the image. I’m not doing that, I’m just flying through them. When I go through my images I only have to ask myself one question and do one action. Is it sharp or not? If sharp I just click forward and if not, it gets deleted. It’s that simple for me. I’m really never sure just what is really being sought after...

K&M Adv – Australia 2016!

K&M Adventures is heading to Australia, 14-20 August, 2016. We’re heading to a once in a lifetime location for critter photography, O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat. I first went there after seeing Sir David Attenborough’s special on the Satin Bowerbird. The nest he filmed at was still being used years later and I was able to shoot there for a couple of days. I came back from our time there with photos of an additional 50 species of really cool bird species hard to find elsewhere. It’s really an amazing place! Of course, the trail boardwalk that goes through the TOP of the forest canopy, the bar in the TOP of a tree and the friendliness of the birds don’t hurt the attraction either. We’re looking at the first week of August, 2016 for this adventure. The price should come in around $5400 which covers your lodging at O’Reilly’s, breakfast and dinner, transportation to and from the airport to the lodge, guides and instruction (they gave us a killer rate since...
