Some photos from Arizona

My sold-out workshop in Page, Arizona kicked into gear yesterday and it’s shaping up to be a great week.

Plus, we’ve got a veteran Arizona photographer (Leroy DeJolie) co-leading with me, and he whet our appetites last night with a phenomenal slideshow of what’s to come this week. I got here a little early so my...

Monday Presets

I’m really excited to introduce a new feature on this site. Presets (or downloads or whatever you want to call them)! See…I realized I had an extra 15 minutes each week that was being wasted, so I decided to give myself one more item on the weekly “to-do” list. All joking aside, I just think presets are cool. They fit into my favorite 3 categories: 1) They’re easy to use. 2) They save me time 3)...
