“Every artist was first an amateur.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

So I have been spending quite a bit of time in the video creation world as of late. The process is a bit time consuming, but I have to tell you, I loose track of all time when in the zone. Its nice to be in that “zone” again 🙂

Putting the finishing touches on Sundays upload right after this post incidentally. I’ll share a few images from video below. Wasn’t an epic day for light, but it WAS for driving the hills of Northern Italy! More on the youtubes here!

“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” —Walter Hagen

I have been blessed (to say the least) to have had some really special clients over the past few years (35 plus actually!) that have given me the chance to express myself through the art of lighting design. And to have a few clients that have taken me to some really cool places to express that art … A bonus indeed 🙂

This one (I don’t think I have shared it here before) was taken on a quick stop between the ballroom and the hotel room they put me up in. What a beautiful commute from the office that day! Thanks Rick 🙂

So I saw this clip the other day. I love these off the cuff unedited travel updates from the road by the one and only Rick Steves! His update inspired me to revisit the file of images I captured a few years ago from Zermatt to give them a little love and attention. I’ll share a few below, and a time-lapse I did from up by a lake with the Matterhorn in the distant back ground (If I can find it!) A couple I have already shared before, some are new, and a couple are processed a little differently than when first shared. Thanks for the reminder of the beauty of that little village Rick! Have to make it back there someday 🙂

Not the best. Shared this a few years ago!

I shared a few more posts from Switzerland over the years. Here is a link to them as well. Happy Travels 🙂


They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’s not sure why I always feel compelled to add a few more. MUCH more on a future vlog that I am presently editing, but more on that soon. This view, well worth the hike, was one that for SOME reason I figured I could just drive to. Not so said the farmer one evening as I was snaking my way up the one and a quarter lane (IF THAT) wide country road to get to the perfect view of the valley. Turn the car around be yelled out!

So it was the next day, that I decided to park way down in the village and hike up to what ended up being a beautiful morning to watch the sun paint its beautiful light across the Italian hills at the foothills of the Dolomites. Well worth the hike 🙂

Overlooking Innsbruck

Another from a recent trip. Some view from the room isn’t it?
