Help Me Help Others

      I have been very blessed in my life living in my own little Lava Paradise. I have been blessed with a fantastic wife and 2 beautiful children. I have been blessed by the beautiful world around me and a passion to capture it in my art. I have been gifted with an eye for photography and the skill to capture what I see on film. To top it all off I have been lucky enough to meet some fantastic friends along the way and have many people who collect and support my art. Thanks to all of these blessings I am able to make my living completely off my art. I am not wealthy but am lucky to be able to do what I love and make a living. Even if I didn't make my living capturing these images I would still do it. It is not about the money or about being known to others. It is about the pursuit of that next amazing moment in time to capture with my camera. Now I just want to find a way to give back to the world that has given me so much.

       Please help me find charities or companies that are doing good for this world that could use any of my images to help illustrate their cause. I am hoping the the beauty this world has shown me can be given back to the world and help to develop awareness about our oceans, environment, national parks, endangered species, and why we should protect them. Also anything for the men and women that put their lives on the line to defend, protect and save us when were in danger. If you have or know of a cause that could use any of the images in my portfolio contact me I would love to help.

Getting Caught Up!

We have been very busy and I have been very lazy over the last 2 years. The only post I put up over the last year was for my annual Memorial day give away. I just did another and realized that I haven't posted in a year. I'm sorry to anyone who follows us but it has always been the art first the promotion second. Nick and I both are bad at writing and worse at self promotion. We just love being in nature and sharing the natural world through our Art. I will try to be a little more up to date on our blog if I can. For now I am going to post a few favorite images that haven't gone up on the blog over the last year or two. Then I will do a few blogs to get everyone caught up with us. The image above is from our March 2013 Alaska trip searching for the northern lights.

So as you can see there is a lot to get caught up on. I will try to get posts done about all of these subjects and shoots over the next few weeks. I thank everyone for their support over the years and hope you all enjoy the images we capture. I do apologize for not keeping everyone more up to date but when you spend your days tying capture your images in camera,  it means many more days in the field to get just the right conditions to capture the shot you want. And for us it is more about getting the next shot then it is about the fame or recognition for the last shot. We just want to share the beauty of the world we see with everyone who will look.
