MSN Money used two photos for a December 1, 2017 article entitled "32 Most Dangerous (and Safest) Cities for Cycling" by Thomas C. Frohlich. The photo below on the left is titled My Bike and is, well... my bike, it's standing out on an observation deck on the Silver Strand just south of Coronado, California. This was taken while bike riding in to Coronado after stopping for a break. While walking back to the bike as it stood I thought, "hmmm, that looks cool." The photo below on the right is Oregon Street and it's traffic on the interstate taken from an overpass in downtown El Paso, Texas.
Thanks to The Ingraham Angle on Fox News for using this photo in a promo for this new show (October 2017). The photo, appearing at 6 seconds, was taken in Coronado, CA and is actually a common street scene there.

This photo has been around quite a bit, it was taken one morning while walking around Coronado. The lesson learned was this, you can cover more ground in a car and sometimes that's useful. However, if you're looking to shoot every day subjects, you have to get out on foot because this shot would never have happened while driving... A huge thanks for these folks:
This is the older of the two Cape Henry light houses at opening of the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia Beach, VA. This is definitely worth the visit and you can't beat the view if you're willing to climb the stairs! Thank you to:
This is my old buddy Rover, a Springer Spaniel; he would do this for minutes. I once forgot about him for about 10 minutes while doing the dishes and, while the floor covered with drool, the biscuit was still on his nose!
This was taken on a hot summer night in El Paso, TX from nearby Scenic Drive. I like this photo because it feels busy, like a city does, and shows contrast between the neighborhoods in the foreground and the downtown area in the center of the photo. Many thanks to:
I actually took a bunch of shots like this that afternoon while trying out a new Tamron 150-600mm lens. Needless to say, I like the lens so much that I recently bought the new G2 version! Many thanks to:
While on Facebook and seeing this advertisement, I thought I went to my photos by accident. It was actually a photo shot earlier of the ribbons of a US Navy SEAL. Thank you Navy Mutual Insurance for using this photo and a bigger THANK YOU to the US Navy SEAL's for all you do!
Thank you Jerry Edgerton at CBS News for using this photo of a late 1940's ice cream truck in his article, "7 of the best cars made in the USA" on July 4, 2017. No memory of the make and model, but it was taken at Motorcars on Main Street in Coronado, CA.
Thanks to Hakai Magazine for using this photo on April 20, 2017 for an article by Ramin Skibba entitled "California’s Surf Spots Are Heading for a Wipeout." I having a morning walk on the beach in Coronado, CA and saw this guy walking in with his board. Shooting conditions weren't very good because I was shooting almost directly in to the sun, but that's what really made it work!

National Geographic Traveller India used this photo for the April 2017 cover of The Road Trip Issue. The image is a composite of my car photo and with the image created in the hubcap by Pilin Petunyia (below left). On the below right page they credited me in the table of contents. Photographer's dreams of getting in to National Geographic in any way possible, I couldn't be happier about this! This photo was taken in Coronado, CA where a friend had the greatest car collection and was gracious enough to let me film his cars. This car is a 1957 Ford Ranchero and if there was ever a really cool car, this is it! Yes, this one is framed at the house.
This photo has been used numerous times, and while I had taken many photos of Mount Vesuvius while living in Naples, this was the only evening shot. Maybe I should have done that more... Many thanks to:
