Many thanks to photographer Matt Payne for inviting me to this conversation! Matt’s podcast F-Stop Collaborate and Listen is one of a kind, well known, and enjoyed by many photographers. Matt invited me Guy Tal to his 200th episode for a special discussion on the history of landscape photography. It was an engaging conversation with Matt and Guy and I hope it proves valuable to others. Thank you for listening!

My article The Sum of Influence with eight photographs appears in the November 2020 issue of Medium Format magazine. It’s a genuine thrill to share the pages with some of the top names in international landscape photography. Thank you, Medium Format!

I am pleased to have an article and eight photographs in the May 2020 edition of Medium Format Magazine, the #1 magazine dedicated to Medium and Large Format photography enthusiasts. This monthly magazine is very well-written, elegantly presented, and contains many great photographs from all genres in more than 100+ pages in every issue. Furthermore, Medium Format has graciously provided me with my own column – The Inner Landscape – where I will share thoughts and personal process from the creative and artistic side of the medium. I look forward to seeing you there!
It was more than ten long years since my old website first rolled out. In 2018, 58% of total website visits came via mobile devices and it was time for my site to join the 21st century. The old website featured considerably smaller images and was not mobile device compliant, while the new one features an all-new graphical interface as well as responsive and much larger images (reponsive = images that scale properly to any device for maximum resolution and viewing enjoyment). Hundreds of photographs have been reworked for the new site. More work remains to be done and new bodies of work are forthcoming but I am thrilled with the new look and would love to hear what you think about it. Thank you for viewing!
Photographer notes: consider WideRange Galleries if you need a custom website. I’ve been working with Jack Brauer and WideRange for more than a decade and cannot recommend their services enough.
I will be presenting Death Valley National Park: Magnitude and Mystery to the Lancaster Photography Association (Lancaster, California) on Tuesday, August 20th, 2019.

My forthcoming Death Valley autumn/winter workshop season is filling up quickly. Seats remain open in the two following workshops:
(with Guy Tal; a cerebral and non-technical workshop). We’ve moved this annual workshop earlier in the season to take better advantage of late winter storms and light.
I hope to see you soon in Lancaster or Death Valley!
I offer my sincere thanks to Susan Burnstine for writing about my work in her monthly column and featuring four of my images in the August 2019 issue (#231) of Black + White Photography magazine (U.K.). The full print magazine is available at Barnes & Noble and at international newsstands. A digital version can be downloaded here. You can also click here to read this article only (content provided COURTESY OF BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY MAGAZINE (UK), August issue #231).
After reading the article, please check out Susan’s own critically-acclaimed work. She is one of the few photographers today avidly pursuing alternative processes to create an idiosyncratic and deeply personal visual landscape. I’ve long admired her unique style and process and dream-like images. Thank you, Susan!
