Madera Canyon Magic

If you want stunning hummingbird photos head to the magical Madera Canyon in Southeastern Arizona.  At any given time, 15 different types of feisty little hummingbirds pass through this mountain oasis. These little birds have their own magic act.  Their speed makes them appear and disappear as fast as Harry Houdini.  They can fly forward, […]

From Capture to Canvas | Our Top 3 Post-Production Tools

  Every artist draws from a pool of tools that help him excel at his chosen craft.  In addition to his favorite camera gear, Dad has three post-production tools that he can’t live without.  While times have changed drastically since he started using these about 20 years ago, they are still Dad’s “go-to” tools. Photoshop […]

Are We There Yet Part 3 | Beebower Productions

Are We There Yet? (Part 3)

You’re probably wondering if this trip is ever going to end.  Dad’s epic photo adventure through Northern California, Oregon and Washington state lasted six weeks.  Up and down the mountains, to the coast and over the river the little Mouse House (the folks’ Casita) rolled.  Today we’ll explore Oregon and Washington’s treasures before heading home […]

Are We There Yet? (Part2)

After two successful weeks of exploring California’s Central Coast, Dad continued on his epic, really, really long photo quest through California.  Mom and Dad crammed a lot of sightseeing into this half of their trip.  As a result, they only stayed a few days at each stop.   The “Mouse House” (the folks’ Casita) left […]

Nesting Brandt's Cormorants

Are We There Yet? (Part 1)

The fabled Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur, California was proving to be illusive.  Dad and I had repeatedly cruised up and down Highway 1 looking for Sycamore Canyon Road and the little bakery my massage therapist had assured me would be near the turn-off.  No canyon road and no bakery.  No beach.  No Keyhole Arch.  […]

Big Bass Blunder

We rarely talk about that day.  It’s too awkward.  It was the day I sent my husband on a low-key photo shoot with my Dad.  I blissfully thought it would be a great chance for them to bond since we hadn’t been married that long.  I never dreamed Dad would go into, well, “work mode” […]

A Steal of a Deal

For most professional photographers, equipment can make or break you, literally.  Cameras and lenses aren’t cheap.  When you’re shooting wildlife you really need those long lenses in the 400mm-800mm range that start at $10,000 minimum.  Yet, photography doesn’t make you rich.  But to make any money you need those long lenses.  It’s like a dog […]

Breakfast On The Run | Wildlife Photography

Rounding Up Wildlife Photography If you build it, they will come.   With that thought, professional wildlife photography blinds began popping up at John and Audrey Martin’s ranch in South Texas.  Soon a watering hole made an appearance.  Then photographers, like my Dad, traveled great distances to capture the treasures of Martin Refuge with their […]

Growing Up Beebower

  When you grow up in your family’s photo studio there are a couple of inevitabilities: You will end up in a photo. You will get into trouble. And you will learn to appreciate your family. During my childhood my toys were backdrops, strobe lights and 2x4s left over from building a studio set. I […]

Longhorn Roundup

Longhorn Roundup

  Hugh could “see” racing longhorns being chased by cowboys much like a painter envisions his finished piece of art before he ever picks up a paintbrush. Hugh knew he could create this piece of old West art using real photos and blending techniques in Adobe Photoshop. Hugh shot this dramatic scene in pieces, employing […]
