Our Wedding Story

If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time then you’ve probably seen my Honeymoon in Rome blog posts so I figured I might as well share a few photos from our special day. After much research and visiting numerous venues, Samantha and I chose the La Canada Flintridge Country Club to host our …

Why Nature Photography?

Life in general is a stressful process. You fight to survive, you fight to eat, you fight to mate, you fight to not end up on the street, you fight for social acceptance, you fight to find your own identity in this world. When I really want to come home feeling refreshed and born-again, I …

Blooming Red Cactus Flower

I have been very busy as of late so I haven’t blogged in a while but I just had to share this photo taken yesterday at The Huntington Botanical Gardens. The desert garden is alive with lots of color right now including their joshua trees in full bloom. Very beautiful time to visit the garden. …

The Smoggies

The eastern seaboard has the Smokies, meanwhile I get to photograph the Smoggies, aka. San Gabriel Mountains.

One thing I can’t complain about though is that we have no shortage of …

I didn’t watch any football this year so I decided to head up to Mount Wilson on Super Bowl Sunday, figuring that I wouldn’t have to contend with any other cars on the normally busy Angeles Crest Highway. I was right. I pretty much had the place to myself and got to enjoy a nice …

Leaf Peeping

Photographing fall foliage is a nature photography cliche yet I don’t know of any photographer who can resist photographing it either. See more of my Huntington Garden pictures.

Seasons

The nice thing about photographing The Huntington so often is being able to see all of the changes as the seasons progress. This was photographed about three weeks ago in the parking lot at The Huntington. We don’t have fall foliage around here til late November typically but there is always something to photograph if …

Space Shuttle Endeavour

Anyone that has been in L.A. over the past several weeks has probably either gotten a glimpse of Space Shuttle Endeavour flying overhead or heard about it on the news. Today, they began transporting Endeavour on the ground from LAX to the California Science Center. Since driving through the area and parking would have been …

Rainbow Over Pasadena City Hall

I’ve long envisioned taking a photo with a rainbow over Pasadena’s City Hall but it’s not exactly an easy feat to pull off considering that the Los Angeles area doesn’t rain very often. Even if it rains, other factors include the positioning of the sun (assuming the sun is even visible during a storm), and …
