… then there is my real passion in compositing and that is creating new realities from old realities and this is the art I most enjoy in compositing … there is no pretense at being true to the world as we know it, simply what I see and imagine it to be. I have a love of the cosmos and all the unknown mysteries that await us out there and possibly those that are their way here.

… that if I was patient enough I could eventually get a shot like this, but I’m not … ask anyone who goes shooting with me, I am on the move. When hunting waterfowl and upland game I was on the go jumping them in fields, ponds and streams … I’m not a blind hunter. Anyhow I shot the Great Blue Heron at the ponds last week and I took the shot in Sycamore Canyon last month. Sycamore Creek runs below the picture and I’m standing somewhere in the parking area at the overlook and trailhead. Kinda fun stuff. The nice thing about compositing is that you always get the shot you want :+)

logo_ycsoPrescott AZ (February 28, 2017) – In December of 2015, Arizona Department of Public Safety Director Frank Milstead donated a six seater Cessna T210M aircraft to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) to use for inmate extraditions. This aircraft replaced YCSO’s older, but very reliable, Cessna 182 which has been in-service for many years. The Cessna 210 has the ability to fly farther distances for less cost than the price of commercial flights and has worked well to fill the needs of YCSO’s inmate transportation program. Read More→
