I’ve been down in New Mexico since Wednesday, leading a travel photography workshop with my Image Doctors podcast co-host, Rick Walker. We’ve had a great group of clients who are very enthusiastic about photography and learning new ways to approach subjects for their travelogues. Here’s some photos I’ve captured along the way…
I had a great time photographing the aerial performers at the Pikes Peak Regional Air Show in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I used my Nikon Z9 and 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Nikkor Z lens for all of these shots. Be sure to tune in to this week’s episode of The Image Doctors podcast to hear about my gear and settings, and a little bit about how I processed these images. Click on an image to enlarge it.
I spent most of last week in San Diego, leading my annual Southern California birding & wildlife workshop. It was my first real test of the new Nikon Z9 and Nikon 100-400mm S lens. The camera and lens combo performed flawlessly, tracking the fast-moving royal terns along the coast as they circled the rocky shore, looking for a landing spot.

I’m pleased to offer my photographs to the public as digital downloads with a print license. Available images are posted in my Galleries, and you can order a downloadable file that is licensed for personal printing.
I went to a Colorado Rockies game over the weekend, and brought my new Nikon Z fc with 16-50mm kit lens. I set the camera to 1/2000s (shutter priority) and auto ISO, and focused manually. The camera’s fast frame rate (about 9fps in 14-bit RAW) allowed me to capture the moment Charlie Blackmon’s bat broke in half.
