Introducing "Landscapes" — A celebration of the Restless West

Two years ago, I created Restless West Photography to promote and sell my images. Today, I present to you "Landscapes" — 72 pages of my best landscape photography from the last five years. This new book features my favorite images taken in national parks and other public lands throughout the United States since 2006.

The cover features my best-known image, "Trail Ridge Sunset," photographed at Rocky Mountain National Park in 2009. Inside, you'll find images from Death Valley, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, Glacier National Park and Northern Colorado's hidden gems — the Pawnee Buttes, Soapstone Prairie and much more.

I invite you to take a look at "Landscapes" on my website here.

I've wanted to publish a coffee table book of my photography for a long time, and I'm confident "Landscapes" is the first book project of many. I have several other photography projects that have nothing to do with landscapes in the works. I'll publish details here soon, but if you're looking for news about my photography, check out my Restless West Photography news blog on my website here.

New Year's Resolution: Shooting Images Closer to Home

I know, I've said this before, but I'm serious this time: Most of my photography is focused on places far from my doorstep, and it's time to look closer to home for great things to shoot. So, instead of promising I'm going to spend more time at the gym or read more books or whatever it is most people resolve to do at the start of a new year, I hereby resolve to focus on photographing Fort Collins.

I said I'd be doing this months ago, but the moment I said I'd find my photographic adventures close to home, I started straying far and wide, doing crazy things like taking an 8,000-mile road trip. I'm restless by nature, so staying close to home isn't easy. But I hope the results will be rewarding.

So, to begin with, check out my first 11 images from my ever-expanding image gallery of Fort Collins. And, spend some time on my website,, because I've updated my galleries with a smorgasbord of new images for your viewing pleasure.

Check back often!

Housekeeping: My website renovations are nearly complete

A quick housekeeping note:

You've probably noticed an entirely new look to Restless West Journal and my photography site, I'm in the process of merging my freelancing website with my blog after Apple announced it's eventually retiring its MobileMe web hosting service with the advent of iCloud.

Apple will continue to host iWeb-composed sites on MobileMe for another 11 months or so, but finding a solution to this soon was imperative so I'm not left scrambling later on. So, the result, I hope, is much improved. I've (mostly) closed down the old MobileMe-hosted and transferred the domain to my photo gallery hosting site, Zenfolio. Temporarily, the "Treks" portion of the site is still online via a link on my main photography website. I've consolidated, at least for the time being, the former contents of my freelancing site,, onto my Wordpress blog. So, for now, and take you to the same site.

I'd love to know what you think of both sites!
