This is the best I could do at 3:56 am this morning without a tripod and on less than an hour of sleep. I’m so glad I woke up to witness and photograph this beauty. It was a peaceful, quiet, serene, and unforgettable moment that made me feel small #bloodmoon #lunareclipse #totallunareclipse #seeingred #totaleclipseoftheheart (at Dana Point, California)
I’m back in CA for the 2nd time this week. Here’s one of my favorites from last week’s Half Dome mission with @mtmorgie #yosemite #halfdome #california #bucketlist (at Dana Point, California)
We made it! This is @mtmorgie and I at the top of Half Dome. Summiting Half Dome has been on my bucket list for over 4 years, so today has been quite a beautiful and fulfilling day. I highly recommend it if you haven’t already done it; you really can’t go wrong with Yosemite. #yosemite #halfdome #bucketlist #california (at Top Of Half Dome)
Here is an unpublished photo of Dr. Tom Smith, rifle master, naturalist, and what one of my friends calls “the Chuck Norris of the Arctic”, scouting the land for polar bears ensuring that it’s safe for us to land. I could tell stories all day about Tom, but my favorite story to tell is when he saved a polar bear’s life by punching it in the face.
Join me this Thursday at 8 pm at Ira Lippke Studios in Chelsea, as I share more images and stories from my Arctic experience. I hope to see you there and share a glass of beer or wine with you!

For this photo I had to rest my camera on top of an external hard drive because my tripod got taken away. Photographing the Tribute In Light has become somewhat of a ritual for me. It’s a lot of work and many hours spent just to get a single image, but I never ever stop to think twice about it.
