First Place in International Photography Competition!

I recently was awarded first prize in the Landscape Division of the "Share the View" nature photography competition, a prestigious international contest. My winning photo was shot in early October, 2022 at Hart Prairie along the Arizona Trail in northern Arizona. I don't enter many contests, but I particularly like this one for its commitment to nature conservation and protection. My winning image and others can be seen at their website at:

September 5, 2022: New Magazine Cover!

New Magazine Cover!

I've had a couple of my photographs make the cover of a magazine, but this is the first cover I photographed specifically for the publication. This is the cover of the new edition of "Sedona Food & Wine"--the premiere culinary guide to Sedona. I shot this at Soundbites Grill in Sedona a few weeks ago, at sunset. Fortunately the clouds cooperated. I used my new wade angle macro from Laowa which gave me a unique perspective of the scene. This is pretty much as I shot the scene, except the editor enlarged what was a tiny moon in the sky. It came out pretty much as I envisioned!
