Hi Chris - Hope everything is going well. Just wanted to drop you a quick line and say thanks for letting us print the Sand Harbor Vista Lake Tahoe shot. Everyone loved it and the Director that is now in Las Vegas is putting it up in his corporate office so it will get a lot of attention. :) Thanks again talk to you soon.

More of Southeast Asia

The urge to travel takes me once again to one of the most beautiful areas on earth...Southeast Asia. With two stops, in Hawaii to see family and in Osaka, Japan to eat sushi...This trip is sure to be photographically epic. VIETNAM, CAMBODIA, MALAYSIA, and THAILAND are on the menu. Sounds yummy! I stop in Hong Knog for a day to take care of any last minute shopping. Look for some new galleries this fall.

Spring 2007 is shaping up to be potentially very busy. Projects in the works include developers in Chile, Costa Rica, and St. Thomas. I will keep you updated.

Back to Nevada
09/05/06, Tuesday

After returning from Southeast Asia in June I was welcomed back with some healthy assignment work for some large clients. Developers in the Tahoe/Truckee area, a massive development just north of Vegas, and shooting the great state of Nevada for the Nevada Commission on Tourism kept me very busy. Toss in the usual twenty large weddings, and another trip to the Burning Man Festival and you have one tired photographer. There is only one cure, time to travel.
