Have you ever been in a creative slump? You know, that feeling like every thing you try to work on just stinks on ice? It’s during these times that I like to try something new in an attempt

Korean Bell of Friendship

Korean Bell of Friendship

Sometimes you find the most interesting things in the most unlikely of places. Tucked away in a small park down by the water in San Pedro, California you’ll find the Korean Bell of Friendship. I had heard about this place many moons ago, but somehow never got around to visiting. Why I decided to go on a Friday afternoon, in the middle of

Favorite Photos of 2015

There was so much to do and see this year that it just wouldn’t fit into one post! So sit back and relax as we run through more favorite photos of 2015. As awesome as the first half of 2015 was, the best was yet to come. New gear, more trips and more fun with my extended photography family was in store. It was a wild summer for sure, one I will never forget!

Favorite Photos of 2015

As 2015 comes to a close, I can’t help but take a look back and be grateful for all the cool things I was able to see and do this year.  I’ve been to quite a few new places and got to shoot and hang out with some of my most favorite people.  It’s been a great year! In looking back on my photos, it was hard to choose

City Lights

City Lights

I’ve never been much of a morning person. Matter of fact, if I had my way I’d sleep till noon and stay out and play all afternoon and night. While others are up with the dawn shooting sunrises, I’d rather shoot the sunset and then revel in the lights that come on after dark. The city is so dirty and seedy right up close, but from a distance the city lights draw me

Santa Monica Pier

In the year plus since I became a member of the Arcanum, I’ve been very fortunate to meet and shoot with so many great photographers. This past weekend, I got to have a photography play date with yet another friend from our cohort, John Ott.  John was out in Los Angeles from Colorado to spend Christmas with family, so we took the opportunity to

On The Road

On The Road

One of the benefits of taking road trips are those “hey wait, what was that?” moments. Moments where you make a U-turn and jump out of the car with camera in hand. Of course there are all the short stops and way points on the road where you grab a few shots and head on your way. What to do with all those photos that don’t really warrant a whole story? I know! We’ll call it “On The Road” and make a series of it! So here we go!

Victorian Inn

Victorian Inn

You might have guessed by now, that when I travel, it’s mostly road trips. I’m usually trying to travel on the cheap. Which means I don’t stay in fancy hotels or dine in upscale restaurants. All I need is a place to crash, a hot shower and something in my stomach. I want to spend my time and money on exploring not on accomodations. However, there are those times

Historic Ferndale, CA

Victorian Ferndale, CA

Of all the places I visited this summer, Victorian Ferndale was one of my favorites. Founded by the Shaw brothers in 1852 near the mouth of the Eel River, Ferndale is known for it’s well preserved Victorian storefronts and homes. Six historic buildings are listed on the

Fern Canyon

Fern Canyon

Imagine being transported back to the jurassic period where ferns cover high walls and water drips down from above into the creek below. There is such a place along the Northern California coast. Hidden within Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park is
