Panorama Workshop

Hi All,
We will be holding our first 360° panorama workshop in November…… but first it’s time for a new panorama:



Over the past years many of you have emailed with questions about creating 360° panoramas, and I’ve often felt the answers I’ve given have been less than adequate, as there are several steps in the process, and it’s hard to give a complete description in an email without my fingers falling off. So we are pleased to announce a two day workshop on panoramas coming this November.  You can learn about the event at the link below.


360 Degree Panorama Workshop


As this is our first foray into workshops, we’d like to hear your thoughts on the event, regardless of whether or not you are considering attending.  Please drop me a line!


Autumn Aspens in Alta, Utah

Near the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon, just above Snowbird, lies the town and ski resort of Alta.  This panorama features a view of some distant ski runs, as well as the area’s taller residents:

So there you have it, things that begin with “A”.


Albion Basin

Earlier this year I had placed Albion Basin on my list of spots to photograph but since then had completely forgotten about it until  Barbara H. mentioned it on our Facebook page.  I took an opportunity to go there a few days ago and captured this on my hike up:

As I continued up the trail and rounded a large rock outcrop I was greeted (startled actually) by a large moose barely 50 ft away.  We both froze.  I briefly contemplated a career as some sort of wildlife panoramic photographer, but seeing this creature 10 times my weight, the career seemed quite short, and I eased my way back behind the rock.  With the path forward blocked, I hiked back down, and as I reached the point of the first image the sky had cleared very nicely, and the result was this:
