Hawaiian lava flowing into the ocean creating mist spray against the surf
When good friend Miles Morgan and I embarked on our trip to Hawaii to photograph the lava flows, I spent the long flight day-dreaming of what was in store over the next several days. Beautiful beaches, warm air, good food, getting to shoot with my favorite people, more food, epic landscapes, food, etc, food, etc. …

Vava'u Humpback Whale Breach 3
If I could do one thing every day for the rest of my life, it would be to go out on the water to photograph whales for the day. They are simply the most amazing creatures that I am fortunate to regularly photograph. My favorite images of humpback whales are created when they breach. This …

Barter Island Polar Bears 105
Aww! I photographed these two cute polar bear cubs during my Alaska Polar Bear Photography Tour last October. They are so adorable I just want to hug them, except for the fact that they would probably eat me. During our tour, we work with local Eskimo guides who take us out in their small boats …

I’m finally home long enough to start editing my images from the last 6 months. Dang, have I been busy and time flies. This is my favorite image that I photographed while co-leading the Alaska portion of Tony Wu and my dual hemisphere Humpback Whale Tour last summer. See how sunny and perfect the conditions were? …
