Point-and-Shoot Camera Buying Guide

Point-and-Shoot Camera Buying Guide

I update this point-and-shoot camera buying guide a couple of times a year and these are my favorite point-and-shoot cameras for winter 2017/18. Below, you’ll find ten pocket cameras I think offer the best features and performance available, right now. These are the ten point-and-shoots I’d spend my own money on. I’ve done my best […]

2017 Cyber-Monday Camera Recommendations

2017 Cyber-Monday Camera Recommendations

People have been asking me for Holiday camera recommendations so I put together a quick, last minute Cyber-Monday camera guide. I picked a few categories and chose one camera for each. Not all of these cameras are on sale but they’re all models I highly recommend. And some of them are marked down quite a […]

Gravel Biking the San Rafael Swell

Gravel Biking the San Rafael Swell

Last week my dad and I made a short trip south to the San Rafael Swell for a couple of days of gravel bike adventuring. Photo-Dad, a.k.a. Howard, a.k.a. Mr. Shafer, is shopping for a new road bike and my friends at Fezzari were kind enough to loan us a couple of their new Shafer […]

2015 Summer Outdoor Retailer Show Photos

I recently attended the annual summer Outdoor Retailer tradeshow in Salt Lake City. According to the PR material the show publishes, it’s the “largest collection of innovative gear, apparel, footwear and accessories for outdoor sports products.” I’ve attended OR a few times but this was the first time the full scale of the event actually […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Unicorns Are Real: the New Canon EOS 7D Mark II

Unicorns are real! The long-awaited Canon EOS 7D Mark II digital SLR was announced last week at the biannual Photokina tradeshow in Germany. The 7D Mark II has a “newly-developed” 20.2-megapixel APS-C Dual Pixel CMOS sensor, a new 65-point all cross-type auto focus system, 1920 x 1080 60p full-HD video, a faster 10-FPS burst rate, […]

2014 Brighton Closing Day Photos

I’ve attended a few ski resort closing days in the past and they’re always tons of fun. Skiing slush in a T-shirt is cool (as long as you’ve got the right wax on your skis), the silly costumes and vintage ski gear are entertaining, but mostly it’s the party atmosphere and camaraderie with fellow snow […]
