The Valley of Fire-Nevada (PSW13)

I think every photographer should have a bucket list of photography they want to try. Last month was my annual conference in Las Vegas, Photoshop World 2013. I have met some wonderful people over the last few years. Darren is the logistic man from San Fran, Mike is the a technical wizard from Hollywood and Kentucky Matt is one of the best sport portrait specialist in the industry. Check out  The Valley of Fire

Anyone who knows Vegas realizes there is no point in sleeping. We hit the road at 3am on day 2 to photograph the Valley of Fire before the conference. We scouting out the location on day one but unfortunately missed sunset. On our third day we managed to do a little light painting and sightseeing.

Broken Heart

It is amazing how different photographers find unique perspectives and techniques to show their vision. The same arch in the daylight inspires me to call it "Heart of the Dessert".

Down the road we had some photo wars...SERIOUSLY someone should do a reality series on this. Matt and I are down low getting the windy dips in the road in the Valley of Fire. photog-war This year I worked very hard on my portfolio and had an opportunity to meet with Dave Black. Dave has over 30 years in the industry shooting assignments for Sports Illustrated, Times, Newsweek, NFL, NBA, MLB, 12 Olympics and so much more. What was to be 15 min. turned into hours of precious advice and direction...Thanks Dave!


The Westcott Shootout is one of my favorite parts of the PSW Expo. I won a crazy amount of lighting for first place last year that has really brought my photography to a whole new level. Crossing my Fingers!!!

Note:  A Big Thank YOU to Mike Ingold for the images of me photographing and Darren Yamashita for organizing another fabulous excursion! Matt, I look forward to shooting University Kentucky with you too!
