My Best of 2016

Holy crap, what a year! This was my most accomplished year so far as a photographer, in terms of travel, photography, and new projects. It seems like I rarely had a moment’s rest, and indeed, I spent about half of the year on the road. Exhausting and frantic, but incredible fun, and I wouldn’t have […]

2014 Retrospective


2014 was a remarkable year for me in many ways. When January 1st, 2014 rolled around I had no idea the twists and turns the next 365 days would have in store for me. In addition to spending a record number of days in my beloved Sierra backcountry I was fortunate to visit some beautiful […]

Sierra Nevada Foothill Wildflower Alert!

Wildflower alert!! Thanks to a record dry winter many parts of California are experiencing a pitiful wildflower season. Carrizo Plain, a typical wildflower hotspot, has posted on their website that there are zero blooms in the monument. Other usually choice locations around the state aren’t faring any better. However, March’s abundant rainfall has brought true […]

Of Hike-a-Thons and Toes

All things considered, the toe is a minor body part. In my day to day dwellings it gets far less attention than my hands, my stomach, or even my beard. Truth be told, I barely ever give a passing thought to the lowly toe. But where the toe takes on the utmost importance is when […]

Adventure4Life Epic Experience Challenge

Josh Cripps' Support for Epic Experience

Those who know me know that I love a good adventure. But I also love encouraging others to explore and have adventures of their own. And I don’t think that anyone should be prevented from enjoying the experience of being in nature, pushing their limits. In fact, I think it’s one of the greatest gifts […]

Free Adobe Creative Suite 2?

Adobe made waves earlier this week when they apparently offered an older version of their enormously popular Creative Suite software (including Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat Pro, Premiere, and more) absolutely FREE. Anyone with an Adobe ID (which is free to get at could log in and download full versions of the software, using the serial […]

My Favorite Photos of 2011

Sand Harbor State Park at sunset, Lake Tahoe

For me January represents a time not only of looking forward to the excitement and challenges of the New Year, but also a time to look back upon the great memories, photos, and growth of the past 12 months.  2011 was my best year yet as a photographer, both in terms of business success as […]

Back from Tern!

Howdy y’all.  Just got back from Tern Island and boy, what an experience!  I have heaps of stories and thoughts and of course, photos, to share with everyone so stayed tuned during the next few weeks as I get them up on the website.

Going to Tern Island!

Woot!  In a sudden turn of events (no pun intended), the powers that be have seen fit to allow me to visit / volunteer at / shoot Tern Island for a whole month, starting NOW!  Tern is in the French Frigate shoals, a series of small coral atolls about half way between Honolulu and Midway.  […]
