Zeal is an exciting Colorado-based company that is not only making killer shades, but doing it in a responsible manner with care for our planet.  Using plant-based resins, 100% USA-grown cotton to produce biodegradable handcrafted eyewear, and many other cleaner and greener processes - their commitment to creating with mindfulness is clearly evident.  I applaud them, and am proud to be part of their family.

Check out their entire line of sunglasses and goggles HERE.

AUGUST 2012


Outdoor Photographer's inaugural The American Landscape Photo Contest selected from over 10,000 individual images, and I am pleased to announce that I was awarded with an Honorable Mention for my photograph LIGHT FALLS.  Additionally, this image was voted People's Choice Winner.  Many thanks to those who voted!



A nice coffee table book of the winning works and finalists was published.  Editor Chris Robinson states, "Nature photography comes down to being in the right place at the right time.  With that, you have the opportunity to create a truly special photograph.  But being in the right place at the right time isn't a guarantee of success.  The photographer brings something else to the scene.  Call it vision or creativity or artistic sensibility, it's that additional element that will transform a beautiful scene into a winning photograph."
