Discovery’s Final Voyage


Yesterday, NASA’s Discovery Space Shuttle made its last flight, piggy-backing upon a 747 from Florida to our nation’s capital.  Before touching down at Dulles International Airport, it took some low and slow final victory laps around the Washington, D.C. area.  Shortly thereafter, Facebook and the rest of the internet was saturated with onlookers’ snapshots.  I […]

On a Palm Sunday years ago, I was walking the streets of New Orleans with my camera and Donna, the woman who would later become my wife. It was my early days of photography and I was shooting film with my traditional Canon Rebel. As we were walking through the French Quarter, we passed a […]

One of my favorite cities to photograph is Florence, Italy, known locally as Firenze.  The city is a living museum with gorgeous architecture, incredible artistic history, and the food, oh my god the food. The last time we ventured to Firenze, we stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast, La Residenza del Proconsolo, which includes […]

Colorado.  One of the most geologically diverse states in our nation, Colorado provides  a plethora of opportunities for any photographer.  While I spent some time roadtripping around Arizona, Utah and Nevada this past spring, I was fortunate to be recently sent to Denver on a two-week business trip this past August and September.

The Baby Buffalo

Battle at Kruger No. 4

While the heroes of the Battle at Kruger are probably the large herd of adult buffaloes, it is the baby buffalo captured by the lions who has stolen our hearts. Its resilience and will to live has inspired the world. I am frequently asked, “What do you think happened to the baby buffalo? Do you […]

Southwestern Beauty in Arizona

A very short time ago, we ventured out west, taking a 2 week road trip around the southwest.  Starting in Las Vegas, Nevada, we ventured into Arizona.  The red rocks, vast skies, and dramatic lighting made us feel like the entire state was on fire.  This was my second visit to the Copper State and […]

In 2007, we returned to South Africa to film a documentary for the National Geographic Channel.  We spent many days driving in a Land Rover all over Kruger National Park watching lions, impalas, buffaloes, hornbills, and other interesting animals.  On one late afternoon, we decided to take a leisurely drive returning to camp so that […]
