An often difficult task with printing nightscape images is scaling to large sizes due to the inherent limitations in what our cameras can do as well as what we can see through the haze of our atmosphere and increasingly blinding light pollution. However, where there is a will, there is a way, and I have been perfecting techniques which make it possible to print these complex images larger and clearer than ever imagined.
Clicking on the BUY link beside each image will show you what sizes are available.
For special printing needs, like if you want it as face-mounted acrylic or have delivery questions, please contact me directly as some advanced features are not currently available through the online ordering process.
Let me introduce myself...
The beautiful skies and sweeping landscapes of the American southwest make good photos easy to come by, but the truly transcendent ones are the ones that I enjoy going after because you have to make it happen. From the vision that you need in order to see it before it happens, to the knowledge you've gained from constant study and practice, to the little bit of post-processing creativity you get to use once you download the photo to your computer, a truly excellent photo becomes a mission. And one of these days I'll be able to capture one of those!
Shortly after my girlfriend and I started dating in 2010, I attended one of her triathlons with my super slim point and shoot camera in my pocket. It had burst mode and video capabilities, I thought it would be perfect to capture some good shots of her. Well.... not so much. They were, let's just say, okay. I felt that I could do better, but I'd need to upgrade my equipment so I could truly get on top of the action that these finely tuned athletes were creating.
A couple weeks later, she signed up to compete in her first Ironman (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, 26.2 mile run... here's her story: 140.6 miles of awesome), and I quickly became nervous about my photographic skills and equipment. I knew she'd want some great photos for this momentous occasion in her life, but would I be able to come through? After a few months of fretting and worrying, she handed me a box for my birthday. That box contained the spark that was needed to get me up and running... my first DSLR, some wonderful words of encouragement, and, of course, an implication that I had run out of excuses. (Side note: it's not always about the camera, but sometimes that camera has a hidden button, labeled "confidence")
These days you can find me on most weekends trying to get that one perfect image of my (now) wife as she swims, bikes, and runs past her competition. If you're part of her competition, I might just get one of you too. I'm also always in hot pursuit of the darkest sky I can find, armed with a tripod and a prayer for a clear night. If you see my climbing and camping gear in the back of the car, I'm probably headed up a mountain. The fun thing is, you just never know where my camera is headed, but I have a list of photos in my head that still need to be captured, and no one can take them but me.
Most, if not all, of my images are for sale. If you'd like a specific size or product that is not offered, you can contact me by email here (or by clicking the "Contact Me" link above) and I'll do my best to accommodate you. I hope you enjoy my site, and please leave me a comment to let me know how I'm doing.
