Newton Graphic Science Press in Japan published one of my cycloid photos twice in the past year.
Amanda and I spent the weekend exploring the Hudson Valley. On our way back today we stopped at the Sawkill Farm store. I had my camera gear in tow and they graciously allowed me to take some photos of their sheep. It was a drizzly day, but I had a wonderful time. The sheep have so much character and personality!
Amanda and I spent a few days in California wine country at the end of March before we drove over to Yosemite. We were kind of disappointed in wine country because we expected to learn a lot more than any of the tour guides seemed to be interested in teaching us, so we took one of the days and drove over to the Point Reyes National Seashore. That turned out to be a great idea.
We love going to national parks in the spring. The weather is cool, the parks aren’t crowded, and the waterfalls are spectacular due to snowmelt. Here is a small collection of photos I shot in Yosemite at the end of March 2016.
Last year Amanda and I visited Glacier for a couple days before the official start of the summer season. Going to the Sun Road was still closed, but we avoided the crowds, explored the park in solitude, took in the wonderful scenery, and ran into some incredible wildlife. Here is the best of what I shot over three days in Glacier.
Last year Amanda and I visited Yellowstone for a couple days before the official start of the summer season. It was chilly and some roads were closed due to snow, but we avoided the crowds and got to explore the park in relative solitude. Here are the best photos I shot over two days. I took a few landscapes, but I mostly focused on the colors and textures I encountered.
A photography project that explored the light, exposure times, and shadows.

At the beginning of the semester, I got to spend some time down at the pool shooting some fun photos for the Hillsdale Collegian.

Gretchen Whenever the Collegian … Continue reading Diving
I shot this for a story at my college paper about the city deferring the medical marijuana decision ruling four consecutive times. We needed a catchy jump from A1, so I came up with this. This was a fun shoot. We got some strange looks, but good results. Disclaimer: These are hand-rolled tobacco cigarettes. No … Continue reading Lighting Smoke Trails
One of my photos was on National Review Online today! The photo was of the recently dedicated statue of Former President Reagan that was dedicated here at Hillsdale College last week. The Reagan statue is Hillsdale’s most recent addition to the Liberty Walk. Here is a larger version:
