with my 
Photographer's Travel Guides

As a landscape and travel photographer, I have spent time, money, and energy over the years seeking out distinctive and unique photographic locations both domestically and internationally.  I am now proud to provide my first hand photographer’s experiences and helpful tips in the form of my new series of  photographer’s travel guide ebooks.  All the ebooks are illustrated with high quality photographic images which accompany the relevant and detailed  informative text.  As photographers, we all strive to come back with unique images that separate our work from the usual iconic shots.  Benefit from my travel encounters and make use of the readily available download publications.

Hidden Yosemite & Hoover Wilderness eBook      Peek Inside Hidden Yosemite eBook

Photograph Hidden Yosemite & the Hoover Wilderness

Explore and photograph rarely published locations and sites within Yosemite National Park and the adjoining Hoover Wilderness area.  I have been hiking in the the central Sierra Nevada Range for forty years and am crystalizing some of my favorite “off the beaten path” sites into this eBook.  It’s hard to believe that in this popular and highly “people impacted” area that there are new perspectives and creative visions to be captured by photographers.  This eBook, I believe, will surprise you in what is still largely unvisited and un-photographed.  Subjects just waiting for you and your camera.  

Areas covered:  Yosemite Valley’s Upper Cliffs, Yosemite Valley’s River Trails, South Fork of the Merced- Wawona, Olmsted Point Surrounds, Pywiack  Dome & Meadow, Dana Fork of the Tuolumne, Gaylor Lakes, Granite Lakes, Mine Creek Lakes Basin, Twenty Lakes Basin, Conness Lakes, Warren Canyon, Technique, Photo Gear, & Personal Safety Gear for Mountain Photography.
