RV’s and quirky gear

VW Vanagon
My Dad’s first VW Vanagon

RV types

In the world of recreational vehicles (RV’s) there are many types and styles. From your small tow behind trailer to your amazing class A’s that will do everything with the push of a button except make the bed.  But there is one RV that has a following that is legendary and that is the VW Vanagon.  The VW is not a luxury machine in any way,  It is practical, comfortable and some would even say fun but luxury is not on the list.  Neither is reliability or speed on the benefit list in anyway. But the VW has a insane following that is unmatched in the RV world.  If you want to know how insane just drive a VW camper down a highway. When you pass another VW you will see the other person waving and

Writing on Stone

Writing on Stone in the spring!

I LOVE Writing on Stone for so many reasons.  I have a hard time saying that in the heat of the summer as it is so hot but this time of year it is GREAT!!!

Last weekend I found myself on the way to Writing on Stone with clear skies and almost a full moon.  The large moon was not the best for night shots but would be great for seeing at night as I walked around the park after dark.  The sunset was okay, it would have been nice for a couple clouds but again it was warm, no snow and great just to be outside after such a long winter!

Owning a business can be ……. Work, Work, Work

If you thought owning a business was a lot of work you should try having to maintain your own web site and blog.  You leave it for a week or two and when you come back there us so much work to do to keep it up.

A windy day is perfect for doing the behind the scenes things like this!

SOMEDAY I will get into a system to keeping my blog up-to-date!

Spring is coming!!!!

I was out walking the dog yesterday and could not believe how hot the sun was. A good sign that spring is coming and with spring the birds. I love the spring birds as they are in good health and their colors are starting to enhance so what better time for a bird course.

This year I have added a full day with (6 hours) of shooting.

Strange things customers have said…..

To help break up winter lets looks at some strange things that happen in the photography world! If you know me you will know one of my sayings is ‘There are no stupid questions” but sometimes people say things that cannot be explained as being anything other than really strange.  A couple weeks ago another photographer stopped in and we got discussing some of the strange things that people have said over the years. Seeing that it is so cold outside here are a few laughs to warm you up….

Secrets to getting that amazing shot

Photo Courses, Workshop, Photo Tours, Photo Expeditions, Photo Safaris

So before I start let me say I think EVERYONE should take a Course, Tour, Expedition or Safari from me – because I am such a nice guy But what if you want to go someplace that I do not go and you want to hire someone to help with your photography, what should you look for?

First what is the difference in the above terms (unfortunately there is no hard and fast rule for what the terms mean) but here is what I generally find:

Flash Back Friday….. #10

Well the 40D’s were very impressive, so much so that I still have one today.  I may sell it off someday but it is still doing what I want it for so I am happy to keep it around.

When Canon came out with the 50D I was not happy, nothing that I saw said this is worth upgrading to. When they came out with the 60D I was sad as it was in my opinion a step backwards.  So I stuck with the 40D’s.  Then Canon brought out the 70D and I could not help but switch.  There were so many updates that I was VERY happy.  Sold all the 40D’s but one.  Bought a bunch of 70D’s and was very happy.

AS I type this I am surrounded my 70D’s.  One is dedicated to my 150-600 lens and does a great job.  They all have the extended grip and dual batteries.  I can say that at this time I do not see an update happening with what is on the market.
