Stars, Orion, and zodiacal light over an eroded gully, Death Valley

I’ve had a full plate for the last month or so, with several workshops, followed by the Out of Yosemite conference. The conference was really fun, and I’ll have more to say about it soon. But first I wanted to let you know that Ian Plant just posted an interview with me on his YouTube channel. I thought Ian had some great questions. We discussed how I began my career as a wildlife photographer, my night photography, whether I have a personal style, and the balancing act between photographing the things you like while finding an audience for those images. And we talked about how I made some of my photographs, like the Death Valley image above. I hope you’ll enjoy the interview; here’s a link.

You might also enjoy Ian’s interviews with other photographers like Gavin Hardcastle, Sean Bagshaw, Joseph Rossbach, and Kurt Budlinger. You can find them all on his YouTube channel, Shuttermonkeys TV.
