This is my favorite image of 2022 for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the image was captured on the Snake River in southern Idaho, near my old stomping grounds as a kid. So, it has some nostalgic value. I love the way the Milky Way is juxtaposed with some low hanging clouds in a crisscross pattern, and several boulders in the foreground complete the composition. The night was absolutely beautiful, and I was the only person on the river. This photo will always remind me of that perfect night.

Client Testimonials

Brad goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone is comfortable and getting the help they need, both out in the field and in post-processing. He is always there to answer any questions and he does so with kindness and patience. The small class size is perfect, and because he does not bring his own camera to the workshops, it allows him to spend quality time with each participant. – Jenny

Brad bleeds excellence in everything photography-related. He is kind, intelligent, quick-witted, knowledgeable, but most of all, caring. At no additional cost, Brad offered to lead during extra nights when weather threatened planned photoshoot evenings.  He purposefully left behind his camera to ensure focus on helping students.– Roger

I just attended my third Goldpaint Photography 5 day workshop in beautiful Mt. Shasta. That alone should tell you a lot about Brad’s workshops. I love Brad’s work professionally and love that he teaches his own processes to his students. He is the only instructor of workshops I have attended who does NOT bring his own camera. His full attention is on his students.– Patricia
