From Fall to Frozen.

It seems like I spent the last few Months waiting for the Autumn colors to peak and as soon as fall foliage hit it’s stride the ice came… It was wonderful while it lasted, but way to short. When I look outside the colors are still available but the brilliance we had a couple weeks ago is far more muted. I put together a quick video as part of a snap challenge in my cohort for the Arcanum, a new education based photo community I’ve joined. It’s designed around the master/apprentice  learning scenario. One mentor leads a group of 20 apprentices as we work on challenges and progress to higher levels. From my perspective the whole thing is about having a good community to help push you forward with your skills by keeping you active in challenges that produce new work. I’m currently a level 7 apprentice in Mason Marsh’s cohort… at each level you have a new activity to complete before you can move up to your next challenge. Every 4 or 5 challenges there is a critique of your recent work. It’s a great opportunity to get fresh eyes on your work and see other peoples perspectives.

Below is a sample of some of the work I’ve been doing since joining the Arcanum:

New Aperture Expert Article | Good News & Bad News


I have  good news and bad news… First with the good news.

I like to consider myself pretty advanced when it comes to technology and managing my digital life. My favorite tool to manage and edit my photos is a program which was made by Apple called Aperture. A few months ago I signed up to be a contributor over at and write some articles on how I use Aperture. My latest article was just published and it’s about using the Fonts window to customize text in the Aperture Bookmaking tool. Please check it out, I would greatly appreciate it!

Now, the bad news…

Adventure Bound | India + Cambodia

Just a quick update. In a few days Casey and I are embarking on an adventure to Asia. Our two main destinations are India and Cambodia and there will be a small detour in Thailand as we pass though the area. Some of the highlights will be a special guided tour of the Taj Mahal.

I have a lot of photography planned and will be posting updates on Twitter, Instagram and Google+ as the journey progresses. This is going to be an interesting trip and I’m expecting I will be photographing a variety of subjects. I’m packing my 5D Mark II as my main camera and a Lumix GX7 as a secondary camera.

Let the adventure commence.
