Yosemite National Park. Photographing Horsetail Fails in Yosemite is a fairly straightforward process, getting a spot that provides open access to Horsetail Falls and El Capitan is a different matter due to the sheer number of photographers. This particular evening the weather forecast called for storms and rain, which kept a lot of photographers away and on arriving on location at 3:30 PM, I was the first photographer there. I decided to set up in an area that allowed me to frame El Capitan and Horsetail Falls together, which paid off with this picture as the low clouds lit up in front of El Capitan along with Horsetail Falls. Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 100-400mm Zoom, Manfrotto Tripod and 3-way head. Exposure: ISO: 100, Av: 0.6, Tv: 20. Exposure Compensation: -2/3.

Biography

My interest in photography came later in life and emerged during travels while on both business and vacation to various locations. Photography provides a sense of escape from the hectic world we live in and lets me take time to slow down and truly appreciate the remarkable beauty that surrounds us. It has become a passion through photography to capture a unique single moment in time and share that sense of peacefulness and wonder I experience while immersed in Mother Nature’s creation. My final images remain true to the original scene and light conditions.

Convict Lake, California. The contrast in this image was extremely challenging due to the spotlight effect on the mountain. I chose to under exposure the image to keep the light on the mountain somewhat in check, the result of this also saturated the blue color quite dramatically. A 3 stop graduated ND filter was also used to help even out the light. Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 24 - 105mm Zoom, Manfrotto Tripod and 3 Way Head, 3 Stop Graduated ND Filter.

San Diego Zoo. This image was taken at the San Diego Zoo and is all about the timing of capturing a Cheetah in the middle of yawning (although the title tended to imply something a little more dramatic). Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 100-400mm Zoom. Exposure: ISO: 100, Av8, Tv: 1/30 sec.

Great Ocean Road, Australia. This image was taken around 3 am (and jet lag was the reason I was awake) in the morning, the light was from the moon moving in and out of the clouds. To get the correct exposure used the bulb mode and a timed exposure of around 12 minutes. In using an ISO setting of 100 I also had to deal with some noise in the post-processing. Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 24 - 105mm Zoom, Manfrotto Tripod and 3 Way Head. ISO: 100, Av: 13, Tv: 728.
