Best Adventure Photos of 2017

Best Adventure Photos of 2017

For the past few years I’ve made a “best photos of” article at the beginning of the New Year. There are as many ways to determine your “best” photos as there are photographers and I’ve opted to keep it simple and somewhat automated. Since photography is a form of communication, I’ve left the choosing up […]

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.

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 […]

Best Photos of 2016

Best Photos of 2016

We’re well into 2017 so I guess it’s about time I show off my most successful mountain bike, ski, travel and adventure photos from last year. I don’t know if these are actually my best photos of 2016. How do you determine “best,” anyway? To help me narrow my picks down, I started with my […]

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

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 […]

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

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 […]
