In our opinion, Toroweap is one of the most impressive views in the entire Grand Canyon. It's one of few spots you can look directly down to the Colorado River.

If you like bears, you need to get up to Alaska! We took this photo in the McNeil River Sanctuary that's administered by the state. If you are lucky enough to get a permit, you'll get 4-5 days of up-close bear viewing accompanied by a ranger. In this shot, the cub got scared since there were some male bears approaching the river to fish. The cub jumped on mom's back to get a better view. We love teaching photography to both beginners and advanced users alike. Please visit our website to book your next photo adventure!
A beautiful morning at the Totem Pole and Yei Bi Chei in Monument Valley. It had been quite wet that year, so there was a good amount of greenery.

The Subway at Night
Night photos don't always need to show the sky. This is a shot we had envisioned for some time. To pull it off, we hauled 5 tripods, 5 lights, wetsuits, lots of dry bags, and other accessories down to the Subway in Zion NP. We got there a little before sunset and started planning our lighting strategy. We went under the water and pinned lights to the bottom under stones. It took us some time before we got it right. But the effect was magical in the end. Would you like to do night photography? We offer all kinds of night photography tours - book today!!
A lone larch tree sits atop the Opabin Plateau overlooking Lake O'Hara at sunrise. You have to get a permit to overnight camp in this area and it's definitely worth going through the hassle.

While in New Zealand, we hiked through many miles of temperate forest. Although it was very beautiful, it wasn't easy to capture with the camera. Most of the time, the forest scenes just looked too busy and flat to the camera. By including part of a trail through this forest along with some sunrise light in the background, we got an image that worked. All the ferns you see are actually tree ferns.

Bandon at Night
Bandon is one of the most iconic beaches along the Oregon Coast. For this shot, we went out well before dawn on a moonless night.

Storm Over Utah Lake
While driving, we noticed some neat storm clouds brewing over Utah Lake. We took a quick detour hoping to catch some sunset color.
