A young cow moose spent much of the day yesterday in my front yard. It took a nap and picked up fallen fallen fruit off the frozen ground.
Here's an image taken of a rainbow pushing through a foam eddy on the Big Wood River a few days ago. Days with high temps above 32 degrees can be gems on the Big Wood in the winter. It's even possible to find rising fish...
Here's an image from this last summer taken on the Double-R Ranch. Silver Creek, Idaho.
Here are some portraits of my family from a recent trip to Santa Barbara. I am really looking forward to some upcoming trips including to Cuba and New Zealand this winter. Taking portraits of all kinds of people along the way will be a priority on those trips... There is a lot to be said to stopping and talking to someone and taking the time to hear a snippet of their story and hopefully getting an image of them that speaks to their personality and place.
Below are a few black and white images from beaches in Santa Barbara, California.

We just got our first real snowfall of the year. It started yesterday and fell lightly through much of today. Totals were in the 3" to 4" range at lower elevations. Below are a few images taken near Picabo, Idaho today.

Here are some images of a recent day cutting firewood north of Ketchum, Idaho. This was my oldest son Will's first time spending an entire day wood cutting.
Earlier this fall I was hired to shoot for a great new clothing company located in Boulder, Colorado called Mountain Standard. The shoot was a sunrise to campfire and well beyond dark day. We had everything from scattered clouds in the morning to sun to a passing thunderstorm in the evening. Below are some images from the day. The fishermen are all local Sun Valley fly fishing guides (they guide for Picabo Angler), John Huber, Nick Anderson and Taite Pearson.

I just framed my first digital silver print. I'm very happy with the results and will try and use this process with most and eventually all of my black and white printing. I have been teetering on the edge (when considering shooting to make a print. I will likely always have a digital camera with me) of ditching the digital cameras and replacing them with film as I have not been really satisfied with the black and white giclee prints I am getting with my digital files. The digital silver printing method however has reversed my course to shoot film.
For those not familiar with the digital silver process here are a few of the specs. Again, this process is done with digital files:
- Digital file exposed on light sensitive photo paper
- Processed in liquid chemistry
The photo paper in my case is, "true silver gelatin baryta based paper." It's also:
- White paper base with warmer image tones
- Processed in liquid chemistry to archival standards
- Ideal for exhibitions, portfolios and fine art prints
- Superior silver content for richer tones and shadow detail
The printer I am using is Digital Silver Imaging in Belmont, MA.
The print is 16" X 24" and signed, titled and dated en verso. The dimensions of the frame are approx. 32" X 24 1/4". There is also approx 2 3/4" white matting.
Framed: $900 plus shipping & tax
Print (unframed): $650 plus shipping and tax
