Spring 2011

Hello everyone,

Wow is it really spring? Just two weeks ago I was leading a trip to North Dakota and we were stuck for a full day in our rooms without electricity as a blizzard raged outside.

I also recently just got back from leading a trip to Patagonia. The images made were fantastic. I'll be going back again in 2013. Get on the list now for this popular trip!

I have recently added two trips for next year to my website:

The trip I urge you to look over is the photo adventure to Africa in April of 2012. We start by going to Rwanda first and spending three amazing days with mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park. The permits are difficult to come by and doubt we will be able to purchase more than eight. So first come first served on this portion of the trip. We then travel to Tanzania for a full fledged safari and visit all the well known sights in this amazing country. If you have always wanted to go to Africa this may be the trip for you. This trip is being co-lead by Canadian Cheryl Foster who has spent considerable time in Tanzania and her charm, wit and photo expertise will be enjoyed by all! As always you will have a single seat on the photo safari portion of this trip.

I am also offering two trips to Yellowstone National Park this coming winter. If you have always wanted to be at the Lower Falls of the Grand Canyon at first light then check out Yellowstone Winter Deluxe. I have put together the winter trip I have always wanted to do which includes two nights at the Yurt Camp at Canyon.

I still have openings for the August 2011 bear trip to Alaska. I will not be offering a fall trip to Alaska next year but will have a June trip instead so please watch for those details later in the year.

It still amazes me how many photographers do not examine their digital images at 100% when making their initial culls. It really makes little sense to keep images which will not allow enlarging as prints! No matter how much I like an image if it is not tack sharp at 100% it gets deleted immediately.

I look forward to seeing everyone in the field! Enjoy spring.
