Welcome to the first episode of don't worry, i'm finite! I'm excited that my first guest is a good friend, Lauren Buckle, whom I met while working as a photography instructor aboard the Westerdam, a Holland America Line cruise ship. We were sailing in southeast Asia at the outset of the pandemic in 2020, which... Continue Reading →
Shooting Moose in Utah!
https://youtu.be/eYAihmvEeGs Waking up before sunrise often yields great results. Often you'll get a beautiful landscape photo, but sometimes you will find wildlife enjoying their natural habitat. That was the case last week at Brighton Lakes in Utah where we came upon a group of moose having a nice morning by the water. I focused on... Continue Reading →
Photographing Slot Canyons!
I spent this week in southern Utah exploring the canyons of Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. My latest video shows how I explore the canyons and how I photograph them. This is one of my favorite places on earth, and I had an amazing time doing it. Take a look at the video below along... Continue Reading →
How Do You Drink Coffee with a Mask?
When I got back from my abruptly ended contract working on the Westerdam cruise ship last month, one positive I was looking forward to was getting some great coffee in Philly. The coffee on the ship is plentiful, but it does leave something to be desired. Alas, much of the city was already in... Continue Reading →

Most people don't think of Colorado when they think of sand dunes, but tucked just south of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains... Continue Reading →
Empty Chains – Winter Weekend in Zion
Utah's National Parks were the first thing I experienced in this state, and they remain one of my favorite things about living here. Last weekend we made the short drive from Salt Lake City to Zion National Park to take advantage of the unusually warm winter we are having. It was so warm that we... Continue Reading →
A Winter Day in Arches
In November of 2008 my friend Nathan and I drove across the country from New Jersey to Los Angeles. We made very few stops along the way, but one of those stops was at Arches National Park. Arches was my first introduction to what I think of as National Parks in the U.S. Sure, I had... Continue Reading →
After traveling and being away from Utah for some time it has been very nice to be back home. The idea of home for me has always been transient and hard to define, but for right now Salt Lake City is it. I have gotten to really appreciate the view of the Capitol Building and... Continue Reading →
Success is Not Final; Failure is Not Fatal
While watching a movie tonight I heard a quote that caught my attention. That led me to another quote. Both are attributed to, but most certainly not actually said by, Winston Churchill. Regardless of who said them, the words hold meaning: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that... Continue Reading →
