Life often gets in the way of life.  Things have been quite busy since my last post on here. About 1/3 with my normal job, 1/3 with photography and 1/3 with normal life. 

In photography I shot spring sports images for a school, 2 weddings as a second shooter which is a very different level of sh...

How to you go from this 

to this?

Feedback, lots of practice, collaboration with other artists and taking lessons.  

I have been taking pictures on a pretty regular basis since 2000. These were just images for fun, your normal "snapshots".  In 2002 I did my first wildland fire.  It was fun taking...

One of the things I really enjoy about scuba diving is the diversity of life that can be found underwater. One of the largest realization that was a shock to me was the size of many of the critters.

February was a short and busy month, but on the 22nd we hopped on a plane and headed for Roatan, Honduras for a dive trip. 

Waking up to a beautiful scene like this in a different county can be a lot of fun.


We were staying on a cay, in an area known as Oakridge on Roatan. It is the area right in the...

It has been a very busy week but I was able to make it out and capture some more abandoned places. I had 4 locations marked to explore but getting out of the house late I was only able to hit 2 of them before the sun went down. 

I might only have the opportunity to post 1 or 2 times in February....

In the PNW there does not seem to be a shortage of amazing old abandoned places. If only they could tell their stories that would be amazing.  

I am still very impressed with my drone and how it helps me capture these amazing places. Many of these old places have very limited access, if any, and the...

On Saturday, January 12th, this amazing story went running around Facebook.  Unlike most posts on here, all of the images are on my Wildland Fire Pics Facebook page. 

I can not and will not post any of the specifics about the incident due to the fact that I was there as a responder. As I mention...

As Christmas break comes to an end for my wife and so does my week off, we headed out locally to see what we could find. We spent about 6 hours driving around looking for cool spots and managed to find a few.

The first area we stopped was in Hunters, WA, where there are many old buildings, cars and N...
