Published: Capture My Arizona 2014 Calendar

From nearly 60,000 photo submissions and 800,000 votes, I am very excited to find out that my image “Grand Canyon Mules” was selected and published in the “Capture My Arizona 2014 Calendar”. You can see the image at:

This was an image that I captured while visiting at the Grand Canyon in October 2008 and captured with a Canon 40D when mules were coming back to the stables from a long day on the Bright Angel Trail.

Holiday Photo Session at DC Ranch in Scottsdale

I had another wonderful Holiday photo portrait session this weekend at the DC Ranch Market Place in North Scottsdale with my friend Ray and his girlfriend Berlinda.

This location is always a huge favorite among local photographers and with the perfect weather that we are now experiencing, this weekend was no exception. We nearly had to fight off dozens of other photographers to get to the ideal spots. This barn door is always among the preferred backgrounds and props as it is so unusual in Scottsdale.

Still many wonderful images were captured and I can’t wait to share them with Ray and Berlinda who were such a fun couple to work with.

Anyone else needs pictures?
