Check out the NEW IMAGES I've been adding from a recent trip to Nepal and the Seychelles Islands! I will continue to add new images over the next week.
I've begun posting images from our trip through the South Pacific, including a few of the Samoa Tsunami devastation. Although the trip started out on an ominous note, the tectonic activity in the Pacific finally died down and we ended up having some amazing adventures and met some wonderful people along the way. We made it through Samoa, Tonga, The Solomon Islands, The Cook Islands, and then spent a few days on Bora Bora in Tahiti at the end. This was my first foray into underwater photography and I'm glad I brought this new equipment to show you the amazing world under the surface of the South Pacific. It's a real paradise down there. I will be adding lots more new images over the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy them: Newest Images
We were here in Samoa on Ofu Island when the Earthquake shook us out of bed and we ran out of our lodge to avoid car size boulders crashing down from the cliffs above us. After 60 seconds, it was over, but we immediately realized the threat of a Tsunami. A full account of our experience can be found in my travel journal HERE.
I just sent 25 of my best Large Gallery Prints to the Sorella Gallery in Zion National Park! My images are the new showcase exhibit just in time for the incredible fall season. For those that don't know this already, Zion has one of the finest displays of fall foliage in the world! The Sorella Gallery is next to the famous 'Pizza Noodle' restaurant in the heart of Springdale, Utah, the gateway to Zion. The show starts Monday, September 21.
I'll be returning to The South Pacific this fall, focusing my time in some of the more remote island chains. I will be researching a location that I think could make a world class WORKSHOP destination for next year.
I'll be starting off in the rugged island chain of Samoa and will make a return visit to spectacular Ofu Island in the National Park of American Samoa. Then on to the isolated atolls of Tonga where I hope to photograph some of the most dramatic coastlines in the Pacific. From there I head to the stunning and rarely visited Solomon Islands. Isolation has helped preserve the exotic Melanesian cultural traditions and this is perhaps the most authentic travel destination in the Pacific. I hope to spend a week canoeing through the New Georgia Islands and Marovo Lagoon, the largest in the world and a place so special James Michener called the 8th Wonder of the World. Then I go back to the glorious Cook Islands to try and capture a few photographs that I missed the last time around.
I'm expecting lots of adventure and hope to get some great images from a rarely photographed and exquisitely beautiful part of the world. Stay tuned for lots of new work and I will be sharing all the adventures in my travel journal!
The official end of the show bash will be from 6-9pm on Friday September 18th, but I was just invited to continue part of my show through January, 2010. Ten of my best selling prints will remain in the Reed/John Fielder Gallery and I will be sharing the room with David Muench! Hope to see you there. The John Fielder/Reed Photo Arts Gallery is on Santa Fe and 8th Street in Denver's historic Art District.
I will be the FEATURED ARTIST this summer at the REED PHOTO ARTS GALLERY alongside famous Colorado photographer John Fielder. I've been given a very large space in the Gallery to showcase 30 of my best images from the last 5 years of travel around the world. In the heart of the Santa Fe Art District in downtown Denver, this is the preeminant nature photography gallery in the Front Range! The show begins Friday July 17 and runs through September 17th, 2009. Stop by, I'd love to see you there!
We just returned from the Cook Islands in the South Pacific and had a fantastic time in addition to getting some great new images. We spent most of the time on Aitutaki Atoll and explored some of the most beautiful beaches and islands on earth. This rates near the very top of the most scenic places I've been! I will be adding new images every few days so check back when you get a chance! Newest Images
I just returned from a memorable trip to Nepal and will be adding new images here over the next couple weeks. Take a look! Nepal Images
I'm off to the greatest mountains on Earth again, but this time it's a whole new ballgame. I'll be there in the heart of WINTER and am hoping to get some truly unique images and have some incredible adventures. Departing February 3rd, 2009! Happy New Year to everyone and may it be an adventurous and rewarding year for all!

Welcome to the new website! I've added lots of new images and have started a new TRAVEL JOURNAL that I hope will give an added dimension to the images I show you here. You'll find new images from recent trips to Samoa (South Pacific) as well as the Seychelles off the coast of Africa. I will also be adding previously unreleased images from the Himalayas and South America. I am in the process of editing video I've taken in the Himalayas and South America and will be adding the videos to the TRAVEL JOURNAL soon. Thanks for checking out the site and if you have suggestions or other things you'd like to see, I'd love to hear from you!
