Updates from the Grand Tetons and Aurora in Yellowstone πŸ”οΈβ˜€οΈ

Hello Reader, We hope your summer is off to a spectacular start! Just a day after sending our last newsletter, we embarked on an impromptu adventure to Yellowstone National Park. Our mission? To capture the biggest solar storm of our lifetime - the breathtaking Aurora Borealis that likely flooded your social media feeds in May. This spontaneous journey led to some of the most incredible images we've ever created. Keep reading for the full story and to see a few of the images! June took us to...

Hello Reader, We hope the transition from winter to spring has been smooth for you and you're looking forward to all the photographic opportunities that late spring and early summer provide. It's been a busy few months, and we just returned from two and a half months on the road. We had a very productive spring photographically and personally, which was nice after a very challenging fall season. We spent our first month in Death Valley, where we spent most of our time getting out and...

Hello Reader, We hope you're enjoying the winter season and finding opportunities to capture its beauty through your lens. Currently, we're in Colorado, eagerly preparing for an upcoming journey to Death Valley. Our last visit in December left us awestruck, as the park's landscape was dramatically altered by historic floods in August. The floods revived Lake Manly in Badwater Basin, a rare sight that has yet to evaporate. On our explorations, we discovered unique salt formations, sculpted by...

Hello Reader, As the vibrant hues of fall sweep across the land, we hope your hearts and SD cards are both filling up with memories and mesmerizing captures. As we wind down from a season of workshops and conferences, there's an undeniable energy buzzing around here (or is that exhaustion? 🀣). Fresh off an immersive session at Yellowstone, we're still awestruck by the myriad of intimate landscapes our group managed to create. The fascinating play of light, shadow, and the autumnal palette...

Hello Reader, We hope your summer is in full swing with adventures and photography, and we hope those of you experiencing sweltering heat are finding ways to stay cool. We just returned from an extended trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone for a night photography workshop followed by a workshop in Crested Butte, Colorado. We decided to stay local this summer and explore our home state and all the beauty it encompasses. I've been exploring Crested Butte since 2002, and David has also been...

Hello Reader, We hope you are doing well! It has been a busy month for us. We spent much of the time in the San Diego area, and you can read more about our time with a pod of dolphins below. I (David) also led a night photography workshop in Death Valley two weeks ago and had an amazing time with clear skies and Aurora in the desert, I'm not kidding; keep reading below! Jennifer is currently on the Washington coast helping with the Out of Olympic conference, while I am in Denver working away...

Hello Reader, We hope you're enjoying spring despite the unpredictable weather! Jennifer and I have mostly been laying low for the past month. Jennifer briefly visited Phoenix for the Out of Desert Botanic Conference as part of the Out of Chicago team, which sounded incredibly fun. I stayed back in San Diego with the cats, got in some hiking, and photographed sand patterns. Meanwhile, I've been busy making massive improvements to the Nature Photographers Network while Jennifer has been...

You won’t believe the incredible images our attendees created - scroll down to see for yourself! This year has been a wild ride for Death Valley. It has been much colder and wetter than usual. Right now, the temperature is only 55 degrees when it should be a balmy 85 degrees at this time of the year. We have also witnessed some crazy weather...

January Updates

Hello Reader, Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful holiday and are excited to dive back into photography. It has been a while since we sent out an update, so a lot has happened. After we last talked, we went to southern Colorado, leading a fall colors workshop. We had spectacular conditions and wish we could have stayed longer. Our trip was shorter than usual because we had to drive up to the Oregon coast to teach at two Out of Oregon conferences. It was great to get back to this part...
