2017 Trip Images

Finally some new images up for the remainder of my trips in 2017. Ended up taking the family with me to Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier. As a result the photography wasn’t quite as intense as usual, as I took it relatively easy hiking my family all over the national parks. Had a good time anyway. Took my boys (and 7 mos pregnant wife) on their first 10+ mile hike. They handled it like champs. Of course the awesome views in Glacier have a tendency to make the effort all melt away. Have some more hard core backpacking and photo trips planned for 2018.

Big Island, Hawaii – Oceans & Lava

I recently had the opportunity to travel to the Big Island of Hawaii. The intent was to spend a week shooting the active lava delta flowing into the ocean. Unfortunately that delta collapsed and sank into the ocean shortly before I got there. So I scrambled for alternate plans. I still got some shots of the volcano thanks to my friend Bruce Omori at Extreme Exposure in Hilo. Ultimately the change in plans gave me the opportunity to try some underwater photography.

This past spring I was able to take my boys with me on their first backcountry trip to the Olympic Coast. Needless to say they had a blast playing on the beaches and looking in tide pools. I spent less time on photography and more time on showing them some of the amazing places in the Pacific Northwest. Still managed to come away with a couple of decent images.
