The island of Trinidad, tucked away in the southern Caribbean, will always be special to me. In the late 1990’s, I spent several weeks there conducting field research as part of my doctoral dissertation. On a day off, I visited the Asa Wright Nature Centre and marveled at all the birds from their veranda. Now, I’m happy to announce an exclusive small-group photo safari to Trinidad in June, 2018.

This is your opportunity to photograph the colorful birds and other wildlife of Trinidad. I will provide each participant with as much technical and creative support as they need to capture fantastic images over the course of four days while we enjoy the laid-back accommodations at the Asa Wright lodge.

Sharing My Photographic Journey

union station denver
Join me on a photographic journey.

Photography is a journey. My journey started when my mom handed me a camera when I was about four years old, and said “look through this window and push this button.” I was hooked.  For me, the best part about photography is sharing memories and creating art while learning new skills and new technologies.

Today I’m offering part of that story to you as a free download of Field Notes: A Photographic Journey. Field Notes was, by far,one of my favorite photography eBooks to write because I got to share my personal experiences about some of my favorite photographs.

I hope you enjoy your journey, wherever you may find yourself along the path of photographic creativity.

Join me in Trinidad for bird photography

For 2018, I’ve listened to your feedback and I’m taking smaller groups (6-8) for a more personalized experience. I’m also offering more birding safaris, as it’s something many people have been asking about. I’m also offering photo tours, including another photo cruise to Alaska!

My philosophy is simple:  photography is a craft. I believe you learn the most when you immerse yourself in the complete workflow of photography (visualization/capture/processing) for more than just a morning or afternoon.

On my tours and safaris, we focus on more than just taking pictures. It’s about the experience itself. I hope you’ll find the time to join me in the field soon!
