Back in March, I had a unique opportunity to photograph Cody Lovaas at my old middle school. When I went to Muirlands, back in early 1980’s, I never thought I would want to return, but that all changed when I found out that Cody was going to perform there as...

Looking back at 2016

Looking back at 2016

If there was a way to sum up 2016, it was the year that nothing went quite as planned. The year started out with a shakeup as a book I was contracted to write on the Nikon D500 was canceled due to changes at the publishers parent company. Many of the editors and...
