So this morning, as I was turning in my absentee ballot, I thought it might be interesting for my “photo of the day” to capture a tight shot of someone handing in their ballot. Before taking my camera out I asked my neighbor who was running the voting precinct if it would be ok to do so. Interestingly I found out, from her answer, that in California you cannot photograph in a voting precinct with out the
For those that use Flickr, I’m a recent convert after lurking for sometime (my Flickr page), this recent development might be of interest. FlickrHits.com is reporting that some images are being blacklisted from inclusion in the Explore section due to participation/association in groups that advocate “scratch my back, scratch your back” comments.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph Icer Air 2006. It was quite different than last years Icer Air, but still very entertaining! I took way too many photos, but already have a few favorites (see below). Later I’ll post more photos including some harrowing wipe outs.
As I prepare for a fast approaching presentation on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge I discovered a hidden gem missed in my earlier screening of my trip photos. Some how I looked past this image when it is the best double rainbow photo of the trip. Looking at this image makes me long to be back in the Arctic… during the summer.

If you’ve been tracking my Photo A Day project you’ve probably noticed I haven’t updated anything since since July, just before my trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. So whats the deal?

Between starting a new job, enduring a kitchen remodel and now reorgani

His fairly recent post Getty images: a photo business under pressure was of interest from a work standpoint two fold. In addition to pursuing a profession in photography I’m also a web strategist for a tech company here in northern California. The points made in Robert’
Its not often you hear postiive news coming from the Bush administration in regard to conservation, but last week President Bush signed the Thompson/Boxer/Feinstein Northern California Coastal Wild Heritage Wilderness Act (AKA Wilderness Bill, or HR 233/S 128) into law. This newly protected area covers nearly 275,000 acres (see map for details). For those that don’t know, the status of “wilderness”
Day 13, my last day in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge made a huge impression on me. Up until this time my focus was squarely on capturing the pristine beauty of the environment and wildlife. On this day I had the opportunity to see the impact of man on this unique environment. With in the photo gallery of this days highlights are images designated with the labels “Landscape Comparison” or “Hand
I recently upgraded my ipod and started downloading videocasts along with a few select podcasts. Recently I caught a videocast from AtomFilms of a movie made from one girls self portrait photos taken every day between 2001 and 2004. If you haven’t seen this its a must see. “Me” on AtomFilms
