|Last week was unbelievable. I spent the first half traveling from Portland Oregon along Pacific Northwest Coast, through the redwood forest, then over into Lake Tahoe, through Death Valley, and finally landed in Vegas for the 2008 Wedding and Portrait Photographer International (WPPI) convention. Julia Newman and Punam Bean, two amazing photographers, and more importantly good friends of mine took the trip with me. We took our time.. stopping constantly to photograph the amazing landscape. Everyday was spent in a completely different climate.. it was incredible. See below for some images from our journey.
