If you’re like me, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has been the central focal point, or the backdrop for, some amazing photos and memories over the years. Due to the recent wildfires, lots of people that live in the communities surrounding the park have lost everything. This is OUR opportunity to give back to an area that has blessed us so richly. Steve Zigler, Bill Lea, and I have partnered with The Great Smoky Mountains Association (GSMA) to establish a fund specifically for the photography community to donate to wildfire relief. This money goes directly to the GSMA, which will disperse it to families in need there.

This week for Picture of the Week, I wanted to do something a little different (we'll get back to Asia next week). I've always said that I wonder what would happen if I didn't take a picture for an entire year, and instead, just went back and re-edited all my old...read more

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is always a special celebration of life and hope for our family, and this year was certainly no different. What was different this year though, was that Holly was all decked out in brand new New Balance gear! 🙂 Holly was...read more

Two weeks ago I started a series on Singapore (sorry, I had to pause for a second to talk about an epic Bluegrass concert... in a CAVE), and this week we pick that back up. Singapore is a very vibrant country, with flowers and color EVERYWHERE. It's a beautiful place....read more
File this one under 'too cool not to share' (and I promise we'll return to Singapore next week), but this is just too cool not to share! 🙂 Our friend Dallas had posted a while back that he had attended a bluegrass concert... in a CAVE... and so Holly and I decided we...read more

I wanted to start my Picture of the Week series on Singapore with a photo essay of the city's skyline, and what better image to lead off with than that of the Merlion. The mascot, or personification, of Singapore, however you'd like to refer to it, the Merlion is half...read more
Last year my friend Tom Vadnais challenged a group of photographers to find our top 5 images from the year. It was such a fun and interesting exercise, that I've decided to make this part of my New Year tradition (see 2015's top 5 here). Last year I complained that it...read more
