Not enough hours in the day….

After spending some time having Kristian walk me through part of his process in making his own knives, I began to become confused. The confusion wasn’t about the process, but more along the lines of how can one person be so talented in so many different things? I’ve shot photos of Kristian in the past on

Steve’s Shop…

It’s always easier to shoot photos of something I am passionate about. The whole process feels familiar and it gives me a comfort level that puts me at ease when shooting. I think the next best thing is taking photographs of people when they are doing something they love. The photos below are of Steve….I got

Sorry Stan…

This has little to with photography, but since mountain biking is another passion of mine and I have this great area to write…I’ll use it for my apology to Stan. Mountain biking seems to always be in a state of change. Sometimes those changes are necessary and what I’d label amazing. And often they are

The Eastern Sierras

I’ve been driving North on Highway 395 and visiting the Eastern Sierras for most of my adult life. Always wanting to stop during the five hour drive to check out all of the little side roads figuring out what they have to offer, I never had in the past. This trip was like the rest,

Sometimes I write…..

Until recently, our relationship over the last forty years has been very one sided. I’ve probably been more a part of your life than much of your family. I remember when you were just a young boy and you would visit my friends in the desert, riding motorcycles and exploring the endless landscapes. Laughing at
