I’m looking forward to returning to South Dakota next week for my 9th annual Badlands Landscape Workshop. It’s a fabulous location for sunrises and sunsets, and offers spectacular scenery and the opportunity to use a variety of photographic techniques. I hope you’ll consider one of my photography tours as part of your path towards better photography.
The full moon sets over Bandon Beach on the Oregon Coast in this image I captured in 2017 with my Nikon D850 and 24-70mm zoom lens. I’m returning to Oregon again this October, and there is space available if you’d like to join this photo safari.
I just returned from my 5th annual Colorado Wildflower Photo Safari, and all I can say is, “wow!” I had a hunch the flowers would be great this year, but I wasn’t prepared for the spectacle around Crested Butte. The hillsides were literally exploding with color!

Join me in South Dakota to photograph the incredible and dynamic badlands! This small-group photography workshop is the perfect setting for enthusiasts who not only want to photograph spectacular scenery, but also learn the behind the scenes techniques for processing and workflow, including HDR, infrared, monochrome, and long exposures.
I’ve just returned from my final instructional photo safari of 2017, and things couldn’t have gone any better. My group of 8 photo enthusiasts spent several days shooting sunrises and sunsets at the gypsum dunes in White Sands National Monument. What a place! The simplicity of the landscape there is just perfect for working on improving compositional techniques. We also found out that having a full moon at dusk doesn’t hurt, either.
