We often refer to the photographer as  the Artist  but I ve always felt like we re really just documenting the real Artist s work.

Is there a more beautiful display of the Earth s beating heart than the Grand Prismatic Spring from above? .
This was taken a few years ago during a cold clear winter day out the window of a small 2 seater Cessna plane with a 24-70mm f2.8 lens and a circular polarizer. Sony A7rII at the time.

A marvelous work & wonder.

If there s ever a time to reflect on what the ocean has given me personally, it s World Ocean Day. I have been lucky to document the ocean my entire career. Living next to it is something that in many ways has allowed me to take its beauty for granted at times. Every year I try to rededicate myself & family to make better decisions that ultimately affect these life giving waters. Single use plastic is among the top priority in our home and although we struggle, we have made big changes that help reduce our use. 
Hope you all enjoy this day and get out to see the big blue!

I made a quick stop in Yosemite the other day to watch the sunrise and witness the most swollen Merced river I have ever seen. It blew my mind to see what 200% snowpack can result in.. waterfalls are raging of course but more importantly Merced is deep and fast moving with class 5 rapids in places where you could walk ankle deep. It s a pretty otherworldly sight to see trees just floating mid trunk. Such a beautiful sight ... except the mosquitos are on a whole new level... Biblical even. 
Quick iPhone documentation here.

Transparency is everything.... and in a concerted effort to be more transparent I have been working this year to take physical & mental stock of my toll on the environment. Which is why I am working in 2019 to create an Environmental Advocacy Document that is available to the public on my website listing the many Environmental Partners we have supported & continue to work with Including NGO s & Social Justice groups over the last 10 years. 
This document also includes efforts made both personally & through my business that have helped define what we (my team & I) stand for. Decisions like running our entire office off of solar, being a certified Green business by the county of San Luis Obispo or personal choices like eating vegan or having a veggie garden. Every decision makes a difference, even the small ones. 
I do this not for bragging rights but to hopefully set a better example of transparency in a day and age where so many of us make our living and livelihood from nature. I hope others will do the same. 
A few of the lucky Environmental Advocacy groups we have had the opportunity to work with are: 
@tompkins_conservation @surfrider @wavesforwater @protectourwinters @folkeaksjonen @conservationorg @goparks @npcapics Halendid.is

My first time seeing & photographing the  blue hour .... which I used to think was just a funny term people used when it was cloudy & late in the day, but in fact it is a very real phenomena. After a little digging it was explained like this: The blue hour occurs when the Sun is far enough below the horizon so that the sunlight's blue wavelengths dominate due to the Chappuis absorption caused by ozone.
What a world.

In the depths of winter our exposure to the Sun can at times be counted in minutes or rather seconds a day. It doesn t take long to make you realize you need to make the most of every single one... Japan 2018 @kcdeane

Happens... If you re a photographer and this sound doesn t make you want to vomit and cry at the same time then maybe you haven t had the joy of fusing a filter to the front of your lens by dropping it  . Point being , you get what you pay for and this sucker was cheap. 
But hey .. it can t all be rainbows and waterfalls here. A good dose of reality behind the scenes is always healthy.
