Some years are publishing years, some are traveling, 2015 was for reshaping the business—a necessity in the ever-changing photography industry. I closed my downtown Seattle gallery and launched this website, focusing my core business online and allowing me the ability to concentrate on other projects, of which there are many.
All the filming that I did in 2014 with Abraham Joffe and the Untitled Film Works crew—in East Africa, Papua New Guinea, Alaska, and here in Seattle—finally came to fruition. Tales by Light is a joint Canon Australia and National Geographic Channel production & I hope it comes to the US soon!
Travel & Photography: The year was bookended by East Africa
While travel slowed somewhat in 2015, I still managed trips to Tanzania (twice), Kenya, Yellowstone National Park (twice), Antarctica, India, Bali, Japan, Iceland, Washington State, Alaska, Svalbard, California, and Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park. The final expedition of the year was to the Danakil Basin of Ethiopia.
Standing on a little rise an arctic fox basks in the rosy serenity of the setting northern sun of Canada’s Ellesmere Island. I love the contrast of deep blue hues around the fox with the pastel pinks which makes for a very calm and relaxed image.
We are really thrilled with the prints we doing using the Epson Metallic Photo Paper Luster. It has a resin-coated base and a pearl-like luster finish which produces images with high sharpness, excellent dynamic range, and a wide color gamut. “Ellesmere Fox” looks great printed on this paper.

The Rotella Gallery invites appreciators and collectors of Fine Art Photography to join us for the exhibition of internationally renowned photographer, Art Wolfe and his “Human Canvas.” The highly collectible Human Canvas series is a culmination of Wolfe’s extensive background in painting and photography. Blending these two disciplines manifests as an intriguingly unique showcase of Art’s talents and insight, which challenges our perception and concept of nude photography.
The Rotella Gallery will be hosting an opening reception for the exhibit on November 5th, 2015 from 6-9pm, including a meet and greet with Art Wolfe.
Human Canvas will run from November 5th – December 3rd, 2015. The location of the exhibit and opening reception will be held at the Rotella Gallery SOHO.
Before getting to this month’s print, I invite you to check out my new Fine Art Print page, complete with downloadable PDF catalog.
November’s print of the month is a panoramic. While in Grand Teton National Park recently I was able to photograph this moose cow and calf hidden in an aspen grove. Moose love feeding on the sweet shoots and bark of aspens.

An active volcano, Mount Rainier is the icon of Washington state and the entire Pacific Northwest. The national park is a favorite destination of mine and I’ll never tire of shooting there. At sunrise the peak was initially obscured in fog; as the sun came up it broke, giving me a misty, moody reflection that only adds to the already dramatic vista.
