Victorville Sunset Magic!

Every fall, I teach a landscape sunset and night photography class.  I try to mix up the locations and this year one of our Monday evening stops was at Mojave Narrows Regional Park in Victorville.  Southern California’s high desert features some amazing sunsets and this evening didn’t disappoint…  So lovely!!!

Rodeo Royalty!

Last weekend I had the really cool experience of shooting with some true rodeo royalty!  Miss Rodeo Hesperia, Miss Leona Valley Gymkhana, and Miss Rodeo Nevada 2018!  What a truly cruel group of young women, each of them cowgirls through and through.  Lovely, proud of the USA, and more fun

Nightfall – High Desert

I had the great privilege of working with the title holders from several local high desert rodeos recently along with Miss Rodeo Nevada 2018!  Truly nice kids…lovely and fun and down to earth.  It’s amazing to see young people that have had the responsibility to care for animals and what

Desert Song… JCK

I don’t often get an evening where there are no events…no classes…no commitments.  Thursday night was one of those.  It was so fun to have an evening to create and chill. Many of you know that I play the Native American flute.  It’s not something that everybody does…in fact…very few.

Utah and Northern Arizona!

Night and Sunset Photography Class

I am privileged to teach a night and sunset photography class for Tri-Community Adult Education through Covina Valley Unified School District.  Every other week I lead my class out into the field and we learn new techniques and practice long exposure photography.  It has been a complete blast and I

Saint George Goodness…

It seems that at the tail end of many trips, St. George, Utah is a stopping place before the final slog into Southern California.  Until a recent trip, I never got up early, and wandered the streets of St. George as I should have…and I’m glad I did this time.

2017 Road Trip! Tour of the Flyover States Part 2!!!

My wonderful bride and I took another road trip this summer to explore more of America, meet more of the people that make this country truly great, and see more of the splendor and backdrop that sets the state for our national heritage.  We again stayed off major interstates for

Anza Borrego – Beauty in the Small…

My friend Bob and I took a few days to visit Anza Borrego State Park not far from the Salton Sea in Southeastern California.  The wildflower bloom was amazing although the Sphinx Moth caterpillars were working their way through the fields with great haste.  The wind was fierce which made

Mobius Arch – Alabama Hills!

I ended my recent trip to Death Valley and the Eastern Sierra with a stop at Mobius Arch hoping for a spectacular sunset…which didn’t happen.  ; )  That being said, it was a lovely evening and the Arch was in full glory beneath a sometimes cloudy and sometimes starry sky…
