Highlights of Alaska

Highlights of Alaska

I’ve been back from Alaska for a few days and starting to finally get my land legs underneath me.  I will be editing Alaska photos for probably the rest of my life. I did not realize how many panos and bracketed photos I took – which means for one image...
Packing for Alaska

Packing for Alaska

Tomorrow I leave for Alaska, but I’ve been packing and repacking my camera bag for a few weeks now. As a photographer, we all know the struggle of packing the perfect bag. Take too little – regret it … take too much – regret it. It’s probably easier to...
The last of the tulips

The last of the tulips
