A Week of Inspiration

Last week was unbelievable. I spent the first half traveling from Portland Oregon along Pacific Northwest Coast, through the redwood forest, then over into Lake Tahoe, through Death Valley, and finally landed in Vegas for the 2008 Wedding and Portrait Photographer International (WPPI) convention. Julia Newman and Punam Bean, two amazing photographers, and more importantly good friends of mine took the trip with me. We took our time.. stopping constantly to photograph the amazing landscape. Everyday was spent in a completely different climate.. it was incredible. See below for some images from our journey.


our journey..


Black Sand Beaches in Northern California


They look so serious, don't they?


We found this nook in the Redwoods..


mmm.. yummy light!


massive clovers.. leprechauns were gonna come out at any moment






Punam taking a nap in the clovers


Ok, she's not really taking a nap!


Julia getting in on the fun


Lake Tahoe.. caught these two shots from the car. I can't wait to go back and spend some time there.







Death Valley


Can you believe that sky?! yeah.. we don't have skies like that in NYC :-)


Death Valley Junction, a ghost town.. sorta.


Julia, looking like her hot cowgirl self.

WOW! Your trip looked AWESOME! I hope to go to WPPI next year, and a road trip like this beforehand seems like the perfect way to gear up for the convention! I might have to ask for some pointers come February next year!

I adore the path through the sequoia & the parched earth and sky images. Beautiful.
