I'm jurying a travel photography show called "Travel: Faces and Places" for @PhotoPlaceGallery. Submit by Monday for the chance for exhibition and a portfolio review with me.

Bodie takes the cake when it comes to ghost towns. I've driven many miles down suspect roads to check out enclaves of abandoned buildings before, but #Bodie was a whole new level of #ghosttown. The remains of this 19th Century gold-mining town are so unique that it is a #California State Historical Park. Due to the park's popularity, don't visit expecting you'll be alone or that you can push your visit beyond closing hours. My recent visit was all too quick, but I think that just necessitates a return visit. // @NatGeoExpeditions #natgeostudentexpeditions

And now for something entirely different... During the recent #NatGeoStudentExpeditions trip I led in California, I took the students to visit the amazing @Pier24Photography Gallery in San Francisco where I was particularly inspired by the work of @BryanSchutmaat. I've long been interested in images of #Americana and hope that this photo I took at an old lodge at June Lake is the seed of something much bigger. #studyphotography #beinspired // Thank you to Pier 24 for a wonderful collection and inspiring not just me, but all of the students and leaders! @NatGeoExpeditions

The smoke from the #FergusonFire in #California has reached into #Yosemite and has affected the air quality. Our high school photography expedition group ventured out for #sunrise in the eastern side of the park where the smoke isn't as prevalent. At Tenaya Lake, the hazy skies made for soft pastel colors. @NatGeoExpeditions #natgeostudentexpeditions

We rolled the dice last night by deciding to wait out bad weather in hopes of amazing light. We were rewarded while photographing at Mono Lake in #California's Eastern Sierra. The limestone tufa formations lit up the surreal post-thunderstorm light while the sky turned shades of pastels and blues. // Shot while #onassignment with @NatGeoExpeditions on a #natgeostudentexpeditions photo workshop near Yosemite.

While on our #natgeostudentexpeditions high school trip in #NewZealand, we rallied the troops to head down to the #MoerakiBoulders for a pre-dawn photo shoot. These unusual spherical boulders, some at least six-feet wide, are scattered along Koekohe Beach. It was just above freezing, there were a few wet feet and some hungry stomachs, but it was absolutely worth it for this gorgeous #sunrise. @NatGeoExpeditions

I've arrived in #NewZealand for a @NatGeoExpeditions high school trip! We drove from Wanaka towards Mount Cook through the rolling golden landscapes of a New Zealand winter. #natgeostudentexpeditions #LindisPass

Last week I taught a travel photography workshop in #NewMexico with the @SantaFeWorkshops. One very early morning, my class and I drove out to #Tsankawi, which is part of #Bandelier National Monument and photographed the caves and cliff dwellings in the rugged landscape which were used by the Ancestral Pueblo people.

Portrait of Daniel Klanott, a Tlingit man who works at the Chilkat Indian Village in #Klukwan, #Alaska. Daniel had just finished a cultural performance and I asked him if I could make his portrait with the baleen whale staff that he had carved. // Taken last month while #onassignment for @NatGeoExpeditions/@LindbladExp.

After many days of sunshine and clear skies in #Alaska, I have to admit I was so happy to see the mist and rain when our ship anchored one morning in Takatz Bay. There is something about mist moving through evergreens that I can't get enough of. // Taken last month while #onassignment for @NatGeoExpeditions/@LindbladExp.

Churning, nutrient-rich waters surround the #InianIslands where the Inside Passage meets the Pacific Ocean at Cross Sound. No wonder that haul-out rocks are covered in Steller sea lions, otters cling to abundant kelp, and it is common to see the white heads of bald eagles speckling the treetops. #Alaska // Taken while #onassignment for @NatGeoExpeditions/@LindbladExp.

I went from deserts and djellabas in Morocco to forests and mountains in #Alaska after a brief layover at home. I’m not done posting my Morocco images yet, but I can’t resist sharing the beauty of Alaska with you already! My soul feels at home wherever evergreen forests meet saltwater. And throw in a stunning snow-covered mountain for good measure. // Taken while #onassignment for @NatGeoExpeditions/@LindbladExp.
