Spaces Available on Sept Big Bend Workshop

I have four spaces available on my upcoming night photography workshop in Big Bend. You can get the full details here:

Please contact me if you're interested.

The price of tuition has been lowered to $750. The maximum class size is nine people. I currently have five signed up.

Don't let the advanced description scare you. If you have at least a bit of experience shooting in very low light conditions and know how to change aperture, shutter speed, and ISO while in manual, then you'll be okay. This workshop is designed to take basic skills and work them to gain advanced knowledge mostly by experience (so we'll be spending a lot more time shooting in the dark).

Please contact me if you're interested.

My Photos in Texas History Museum

The Bullock Texas History Museum in Austin is running an exhibit on Big Bend. They have chosen to display two of my photographs from Big Bend National Park.

The first image (above) is The Window taken early one morning in September 2008. Henry and Michael (my sons) are with me in the photo above, and they were also with me when I took the image (Henry was a toddler, and Michael was not born yet but due in about a month at the time). It makes for a neat image thinking about my boys and when and where I made the photo that's now on display.

Also, just near that photo, is a display case showing a Canon 5D DSLR combined with a Canon 17-40mm f/4L lens. The equipment is not mine, but it is the same exact model camera and lens that I used to make that photo of The Window. It's just an interesting coincidence.

The second photo is of Cerro Castellan taken in late afternoon in April of 2006. It was my first visit to that area of the park, and I fell in love with the interesting contrasts (white ash and red rocks) and the towering, multi-colored peak above.

The exhibit runs through September 18th, 2016. Catch it while you can!
