Bitterroot Morning

Bitterroot Morning

We are well in to the end of March, here in the Bitterroot.  The days have been warming up little by little, until we woke up to a beautiful blanket of fresh snow and mist across the valley.  I grabbed my Pentax 645z and threw on my Muck boots, still wearing  my PJ’s, started snapping away. Our Mule Pebble and and buddy Showgun where great models and it all kinda came together.

Here are some of the beautiful Bitterroot Morning Images:

Gracie and Zach and the Death of my Nikon D3…..

If there was any way for my Nikon D3 camera Shutter to finally take its last breath, then there was no better way to have it go while Photographing my Niece and Nephew. The kiddos like always are so much fun and we managed to get them ….(bribe them)…to stand still for 5 min. Big smiles on there faces, I snapped away with the Old Nikon D3, 70-200mm 2.8 and the Sigma 50mm 1.4 ART Lens. On the very last frame the shutter stopped and the good old Err. came up on the screen. I had been wondering about this moment for years. Thinking, will this shoot be the shoot? Oh well. She was a good camera while she lasted and her last images…I think, turned out pretty good!

Re-Edit Series

Re-Edit Series

Over the long winter months here in Montana, I decided it was time to go back into my hard drives, pull out some images and re-edit them. I wanted to see if I could look at these images differently and edit the series differently.

These images are from a 2012 backpacking trip to Peru. I had a Nikon D700 and 70-200mm 2.8 Lens with me. Hiking through the Mountains and towns.

Here are the re-edits:

Megan and June

Megan and June

Had a great Photo session with Megan and June, back in January 2016.  Shooting in a great location, we managed to capture some great moments! We stuck with mostly Black and White conversion for these images and then printed them onto Mat Canvas Paper. Overall, Megan and June are always fun to photograph and I look forward to our next shoot!
