It’s been a fun weekend and last few days. I drove to Salt Lake City and had a few photo sessions. I went for a hike and almost passed out… I’ll tell you how stupid I can be in a few, and I started my business training course for photographer.


First. Let’s talk about stupidity and what I mean is I can do stupid things.

I really wanted to hike up to Lake Blanche outside of Salt Lake City and it’s a hard hike. I had a lot of editing to do and I knew that I didn’t have enough time to do all my editing and go hiking so I did what any abnormal human being would do. I decided that if I spent my entire night editing I would have time to go hiking.  So I had a few friends who were gonna go and I worked all night and got up early and went to my photo sessions. Next I headed to the coffee shop and edited a little more and then I slowly all my friends had things come up and couldn’t go. So I left the coffee shop around 10 and went to visit family and thought I might cancel but then I remembered.. I do what I say I’m gonna do so I get ready and headed out.


It’s a hard trail and it gets harder when you haven’t slept for 48 hours. I took a lot of time getting there and I got to the lake and fell asleep and took about an hour nap. I have a nice sun burn to prove it. Here is a note to anyone who thinks they might like to hike 12 miles after no sleep… don’t do it!

But I’m alive so hey! I feel good about it!


I’m back in Idaho now and I started working on a huge video series for photographers. I know so many photographers who can’t make money at photography and lately I’ve spent a lot of time and money learning how to grow and run a successful photgraphy business and the best thing is that it’s working! So I’m putting an entire video series together for photographers. It will cover

1. Business

2. Marketing

3. Sale

I strated making my videos today and I quickly realized that I have to divide these three things up.


It’s way too much to cover.

I see this entire series being over 75 to 100 hours long so I’m going to focus on the area of marketing first.

I’ll have a beta testing group and I’ll offer the special price to the beta group.

I should have the first batch of videos out in a week!

I have a lot of work to do and I hope you’re as excited as I am!

These videos are going to teach so many photographers how to make money and live their dreams instead of just hoping that something happens!

Facebook or Instagram are the easiest ways to get hold of me right now!

I founded a magazine, VEGA Magazine.   My magazine is full of beautiful nude women and its based around the idea of respect and soon it will include amazing articles on how to improve your life!  Out of the last 8 months, I have spent 4 of them living in the desert, under the stars and cooking over a campfire that was made with two sticks and a bow. I believe in self-sufficiency and integrity.
