When you shoot landscapes, keep in mind that sometimes the best light happens after the sun has already set. This image was captured about 2 minutes after sunset in Badlands National Park during my photo safari with Deborah Sandidge. High winds made a tripod mandatory, and I used mirror lock-up to prevent softness from mirror-slap. Although the original file wasn’t quite as spectacular, a quick trip to Color Efex Pro 4 brought this image to life.
Immerse yourself in your passion on one of my small-group photo tours. On each of these excursions, I take you to some of the best shooting locations for wildlife and landscapes. I offer each student one on-one instruction tailored to their individual needs, both in the field (camera settings, composition, exposure), and in the classroom (post-processing techniques, image review and critique). Photography is about capturing the right place at the right time, and on my safaris, we do just that. These workshops are optimal for photographers of all levels, and I welcome beginners! This year, I’ll be going to several popular locations.

My Moab photo safari was a smashing success! Our group had several days of tremendous light, subjects, and vistas. Here’s a few shots that I got in on my own.
