2016 In Review

TWENTY-SIXTEEN WAS A BIG YEAR. New clients were booked, revenue milestones were reached, shutter clicks were off the scale, and the official year-end tally of My Butt In An Airline Seat surpassed 15,000 miles. In this video, you’ll find a smattering of my 2016 work from The Olympic Range to the Seychelles. Much appreciation to YETI and Frontiers International Travel, […]


Muy Difícil

Muy Difícil

THERE ARE PERMIT FANATICS and those who aren’t. I fall somewhere in between. I’m typically in need of quality permit images (aren’t most photographers?) so sometimes I lean toward fanatic. But even then I try to temper my expectations; and when I’m selecting a fly or tying knots or stalking a permit or making the […]


Orale!

Celebrating the low-impact angler. A collection of fly-fishing scenes via kayak and canoe from Texas to the Yucatan.


Burning Sand

Burning Sand

My son Blake has been itching to try the Baja beach roosterfish gig. I told him that it’s the toughest thing you can do in fly fishing. I told him that roosterfish can make permit look like inbred aquarium drones. I told him about friends (accomplished anglers) who have made 3-4-5 trips to Baja without […]


Private Photo Assignments

Recently I’ve been booking a few private assignment shoots for folks that want a unique and lasting record of a special gathering of friends, clients, or family. I’m offering that program again this fall and here’s how it typically works: You schedule a cool event or trip that involves hunting, fishing, or outdoor activities I […]


East Cape Fandango

East Cape Fandango

It had been awhile. About 20 years. I’ve been to Cabo Proper a couple of times since 1990, but it was nice to get back to the East Cape where the pace is considerably slower and hair-braiding is still reasonably priced. Last week my friend Mike Siegman and I spent five days with guide Jeff […]


Ode to a Trusty Yaller Box

Ode to a Trusty Yaller Box

  Casco Bay, Maine: he was more than just a camera box… This is a sad day for me; a day that I’ve dreaded for quite some time. His rusted wheels have slowed him down for the past couple of years, especially on long airport hikes. Too many days in saltwater, no doubt, and lately […]


Two Oceans in Two Weeks

Two Oceans in Two Weeks

I try to avoid back-to-backers, whenever possible. Pack, depart, return, unpack, wash clothes, repack, depart, return. This time, however, it was unavoidable. The first trip involved the extremely busy schedules of nine people, and the second trip involved tarpon fishing dates that have been carved in stone since 1991. I shall now apologize to my […]


Paddling the Pandemic

Paddling the Pandemic

One can never be too careful during a global health crisis… Last month I ignored the media’s warnings of Imminent Death by Pig and traveled to the Yucatan with friend/publisher Tom Bie. We were on a mission for Playa Blanca lodge to explore their backcountry waters via kayak and canoe. For six days we paddled, […]
