White Pelican in Fog on the Snake River at the Tetons

“White Pelican in Fog on the Snake River at the Tetons”
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming


Earlier this month I spent 4 days in Jackson, Wyoming exhibiting at the Jackson Hole Art Festival. On my way back to Bozeman, MT I headed out early that day so I could photograph the sunrise at the Oxbow Bend Turnout.




While photographing the sunrise, I noticed this white pelican slowly cruising the Snake River coming towards me. I took the wide angle lens off my camera and put my 150-600mm lens on my camera and tripod and photographed the pelican as it was floating past me.

Elk Cows with Calf at Grand Teton National Park

I came across a herd of elk shortly after sunrise at Grand Teton National Park last month as they were on the move. I quickly parked the car in a pull-off and started taking photos from just outside the car.

They came out of the woods and into a clearing and this group of cows, with a calf, paused for just a moment to get a look around to see if there was any danger in the area.

New Workshop Announcement: 2016 Grand Teton National Park Spring Photo Workshop

I have a new photo workshop to announce: my 2016 Grand Teton National Park Spring Photo Workshop.

Dates: Thursday, June 16 – Sunday, June 19, 2016   Location: Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Skill Level: Beginner to advanced Class Size: Limited to 8 students
Type: Field Workshop Status: Registration is open.

I am an authorized CUA permit holder of the National Park Service 
and conduct my workshops based on the permit’s guidelines.

Join me for 4 days in beautiful Jackson, Wyoming at Grand Teton National Park in the spring when there are normally a lot of wildflowers to photograph, striking sunrises and sunsets, with chances for wildlife too.

This is a shooting-intensive landscape photo workshop with one-on-one and group instruction in the field.




This workshop is designed for any skill level, yet a DSLR or equivalent (like the Sony Mirrorless cameras) with interchangeable lenses and a sturdy tripod are required, as is a basic working knowledge of your camera. Most students who take my workshops are beginners to advanced amateurs. This workshop is filled with hands-on instruction, demonstrations, and even a session or 2 in the field with my laptop going over some processing tips.




You will learn and improve your skills in the following areas: getting perfect exposures, composition, lens selection, the use of split neutral density filters and solid density filters to control exposure and for effect, how to photograph stitched panoramas, exposure bracketing (HDR), working a scene to create numerous photos & compositions from one location, and more.
