2018 Park City Point 2 Point Photo Gallery

2018 Park City Point 2 Point Photo Gallery

I had the pleasure of shooting action photos of all the competitors in this year’s Park City Point 2 Point mountain bike race, a 75 mile endurance race with about 12,000 feet of climbing. It’s one of the premiere mountain bike endurance races in North America – especially since over 90% of the race is […]

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. […]

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 […]

2014 Red Bull Rampage Photos

Red Bull Rampage is the most prestigious and challenging freeride mountain bike competition on the planet. It takes place in the fall, near the tiny Southern Utah town of Virgin, just a few miles from Zion National Park. It’s so “extreme” it borders on the absurd. The red desert backdrop looks like something from a […]

Sony Alpha A77 II Action DSLR Sets New Performance Standard

Sony recently announced a new high-performance crop-sensor DSLR-style camera that has me seriously thinking about trading in one of my Canon bodies. The Sony Alpha A77 II action DSLR is the follow-up to the SLT-A77 introduced in 2011 and offers a level of performance we haven’t seen yet in an APS-C sensor DSLR – especially […]

Fezzari Bikes Spring Sale Event Photos

Fezzari Bikes Spring Sale Event Photos

Utah bike manufacturer Fezzari threw down a big spring parking lot party and sale last Friday, at their Lindon headquarters. There were deals on bikes and gear, aerial BMX shenanigans, a raffle, and a couple of food trucks. When I found out there was going to be a corn dog truck, there was no way […]

New Nikon 1 V3 Mirrorless Camera – Perfect For Backcountry Action

New Nikon 1 V3 Mirrorless Camera – Perfect For Backcountry Action

I love small cameras. If you’ve been following my camera reviews for any amount of time, you should already know that. I’m usually willing to sacrifice some performance and image quality in order to have a camera that’s easy to travel with, carry in my pocket, or pack into the mountains. I also shoot a […]
