This page is home to my landscape photography video journal with some free landscape photography tutorials. I started these with the hope that these would inspire and teach you some landscape photography tips, my approach, my philosophy, and a bit of my workflow.
Have you wondered how to photograph the night sky? Do you enjoy taking pictures of the stars, but wish you could get better results? In this night photography guide for beginners, you will learn all you need to know about photographing the night sky with the landscape. By the end of this article you will understand the fundamentals of night photography, the camera settings required, and, as a bonus, the six things I wish I knew when I began night photography.
When I first picked up night photography a few years ago, planning barely included filling up my car with gas. I’d simply drive away from the city in any direction, moon or no moon, and snap a photo. It didn’t take long before I became frustrated with this approach and I determined I needed to learn the tools that it takes to plan thoroughly for night photography. The other thing you need to know about me, I am cheap. So my planning workflow needed to include tools that were completely free for me to use.

Light is arguably THE most important part of landscape photography. In this landscape photography tutorial, I’ve distilled the types of light into three main types. Recognizing light will help move you from beginner to master of landscape photography. Understanding light will help you take better photos and aid you in your compositions. I hope that this beginner landscape photography tutorial encourages you to become a student of light. Which I believe helps us tell the stories, and find the freedom to express, what we need to express in our landscape photography.
In this photography tutorial, I’ll review 6 tips for better composition in your nature and landscape photography. However, this isn’t just another video talking about the rule of thirds and other rules for image composition. My goal is that by the end of this tutorial, you’re encouraged to free yourself from restrictive composition rules in landscape photography so you can be truly creative. To help you with that, I’ll be sharing my 5 favorite approaches to composition in the field, and share some tips for defining the subject of your photo.
Fall of 2019 was a productive photography season for me. Not only did I get to experience some great hiking and some great conditions, I also took home a few photographs that I was proud of and are in my portfolio today. Hiking in White Butte Trails, Fairy Hill, and Wascana Trails, my fall photography didn’t take place far from home. These five videos cover each of my outings, showing some of the behind the scenes, the unedited photos, and some photography tips along the way.

A friend and I do the Tonquin Valley hike in Jasper National Park during a September backcountry camping trip with hopes for some landscape photography. After getting some nice light on Pyramid Mountain behind Patricia Lake the first morning we battled rain and cloudy conditions for the remainder of the 3-day Tonquin Valley hike. I managed to capture some moody landscape photography in Tonquin Valley itself and filmed other pieces of the hike to show what conditions are like on a rainy September.
