• Antelope Canyons – then and now

    We are not going to explore the millions of years of erosion and formation of the Antelope Canyons. Instead I am going to describe the amazing transition of tourism to the Antelope Canyons in a fairly brief span of history. There are so many more of us on this planet that it is not surprising […]


  • June 2017 print of the month

    This month’s print of the month is a divergence from the Southwest’s arid and rocky forms and colors. I have always liked leading lines when I compose an image, as they lead the viewer into the image. I have loved photographing trails for the simple reason that they are leading lines. This month’s print is […]


  • Slot Canyon walls

    As you wander down slot canyons and arroyos, you will often see hundreds of millions of years of earth’s history carved by the sand, wind, and waters. It makes one feel quite small. Yet the complexity of the years displays a remarkable beauty. Over the hundred of thousands of years the deposition of the sands […]


  • May 2017 print of the month

    This print again shows the magnitude, movement in stillness, and color of Upper Antelope Canyon. Light shafts occur less than 30 minutes each day. So being there was a special experience. In this case, the light shaft was illuminated by sand and dust being blown from above and not by the guide throwing sand into […]


  • April 2017 print of the month

    They have been called the “traveling rocks” or “sailing rocks”. They reside at the Racetrack in eastern Death Valley National Park. It is a good 3+ hours from Furnace Creek, and 1 1/2 hours of which is high clearance, 4-wheel drive road. It is 26 miles from the highway turnoff. I took my upgraded 4-Runner, […]


  • March 2017 print of the month

    The current Antelope Canyon milieu is completely different from when I came here in 2012. (I will post more specifics when I talk about slot canyon I and II projects.) The Upper and Lower Canyons are so well known that there are as many as 12-15+ truckloads of visitors viewing the canyon at any one […]


  • print of the month

    I will be offering a print of the month, which will be a work of art across all my work. It will not be shown in blog posts or other galleries. These images are of particular interest to me and will receive comment individually as I announce them. Each image conveys a story that I […]


  • projects

    Projects have become a special item for me. Alain Briot taught me about projects. A project is a collection of images tied together artistically. It may be a location or subject, but the project is tied together by its uniformity of presentation. In Alain’s teaching paradigm, projects lead to a personal style. In my opinion […]


  • slot canyons

    The slot canyons of Arizona and Utah hold a particularly important place in my art and in my understanding of experience. My first exposure to them was during my first photography workshop with Alain and Natalie Briot in the spring of 2012, and lttle did I know the impact it would hold. Upper Antelope canyon […]


  • Back in the saddle again…

    After a major detour and because of several people’s desire to see my work, I have begun to pick up where I left off last fall and bring the site up to my latest work. I have some content online now and later plan to set up an exhibition in my office building for viewing. […]
