El Capitan emerging from clouds, Yosemite

I recently did an interview with David Johnston for his podcast The Landscape Photography Show, and it just got released today. David asked a lot of great questions, and I thought it was a fun and interesting conversation. We talked about my photographic journey, photographing the same place over and over, whether originality is overvalued, internal and external motivations for your work, and much more.

You can listen to the episode on David’s website, or through all the usual podcast sources like iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on.

Also, my work has been included in the current group exhibit at The Ansel Adams Gallery, called Many Happy Returns: Photographic Meditations on Yosemite. It’s an honor to have my prints shown next to those of Charles Cramer, Alan Ross, William Neill, Charlotte Gibb, Bob Kolbrener, Keith Walklet, and John Sexton. The exhibit will be shown until July 31st, so I hope you’ll stop by and view it if you’re in Yosemite. But if you can’t see the show in person you can view an exhibit catalog here.
