High Country Fly Fishing

The $1,250.00 radio made a loud plopping noise as it splashed into the lake.  It slowly dropped three feet down in icy water before hitting the bottom of the chilly lake.  Everyone froze.  The main line of communication between Dad and his model just sank. They needed that radio.  Someone needed to fish that thing […]

Desert Oasis

The predawn cold seeped into our bones despite three layers of clothing.  As Dad, my husband and I walked to our shooting locations in the dark, the ponds were eerily quiet.  The soft hoot of an owl broke the stillness just as we began setting up our gear.  Then complete silence again.  As the sun […]

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.

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

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 […]

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 […]

Hummingbirds

How did Hugh get all of those colorful little hummingbirds to show up for their photo sessions? He set up an irresistible banquet. Attracting hummingbirds is pretty simple.  They need four things:  nectar, protein, water and shelter.  Luckily for Hugh his daughter Denise, at one point, lived in southeastern Arizona, the hummingbird capital of America.  […]
