Miggo Agua Storm Proof Camera Bag

Miggo Agua Storm Proof Camera Bag

A few weeks ago I got a message on LinkedIn from Israeli camera strap maker, Miggo. They wanted to know if I was interested in trying out their current Kickstarter project, the “Storm Proof” Agua camera bag. As a confirmed camera bag whore, of course I said yes. Today is the last day for the […]

Graham Hunt at the Post Office Dirt Jumps – 2007

Graham Hunt at the Post Office Dirt Jumps – 2007

I’m not going to try to say anything about who Graham Hunt was or what he did. I’ll leave that for Interweb know-it-alls and the people who really knew and loved him. However, for those of you who don’t know, Graham recently died in a much-publicized wingsuit accident with Dean Potter, in Yosemite National Park. […]

Classic Santa Cruz Mountain Biking

Classic Santa Cruz Mountain Biking

I took this photo a few weeks ago when I was in Northern California to photograph the annual Sea Otter Classic bike festival, in Monterey. Although I spent most of my life in the Bay Area, I hadn’t actually ridden there for a few years because I live in Utah now. But since Santa Cruz […]

Add Wi-Fi To Your Camera With the Eyefi Mobi Card

Add Wi-Fi To Your Camera With the Eyefi Mobi Card

If you read my camera reviews and buying guides regularly then you know many digital cameras now have built-in Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi allows you to wirelessly transfer photos and videos to your Smart Phone so you can share them to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. But what if you don’t want or can’t afford a new […]

Fujifilm X-T10 – Smaller Mirrorless Camera

Fujifilm X-T10 – Smaller Mirrorless Camera

I haven’t written much here about Fujifilm’s X-Series mirrorless cameras because they fall into a sort of gray area for me, between smaller mirrorless systems and DSLRs. It’s not that they aren’t good cameras – they’re excellent. They’re just kind of big for my taste. So I was excited to see Fujifilm’s X-T10 camera announcement, […]

Fine Art Mountain Bike Photography

Fine Art Mountain Bike Photography

My photographic journey began about 30 years ago with a Pentax 35mm SLR, a manual focus 50mm lens, black-and-white film and my college darkroom. I started doing fine art mountain bike photography about 10 years later. Things sure have changed since I started taking pictures but I’m still obsessed with photographing everything I experience and […]

2015 Alta Closing Day Photos

2015 Alta Closing Day Photos

The lifts have stopped and the 2014/15 ski season is officially over in Utah – for the resorts, anyway. There’s still snow up there and it looks like more is on the way. So for those skiers who are willing to earn their turns, there are probably a few good days left. I was at […]

Proview GoPro Mount iPhone Case

Proview GoPro Mount iPhone Case

I recently stumbled across this very cool Smart Phone POV video accessory – a GoPro mount iPhone case. The Proview GoPro is a phone case with a built-in GoPro mount. It lets you use your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S5 as a both a GoPro grip and attached live view display, effectively turning your phone […]

Best Photos of 2014

Best Photos of 2014

As a photographer, it’s always interesting to take a look back and see what photos worked and what didn’t. One way to measure photographic success is by making an “Interestingness” Flickr Album. According to Flickr’s super-secret “Interestingness” algorithm, the photos in my Most Interesting Photos Of 2014 gallery are, well – interesting. I don’t know […]

Alta Powder Day Video – Sony 4k Action Cam

Alta Powder Day Video – Sony 4k Action Cam

This Tuesday, March 3, 2015, was one of the best powder days I can remember. I was up before dawn and headed up the canyon to Alta with my DSLR and the new Sony 4k Action Cam. It was storm skiing all day long in Little Cottonwood Canyon and there was a lot of powder […]
