This is my favorite image of 2022 because of how that evening felt. Earlier that day I was soaking in Crater Lake’s pristine blue water since it was a 95 degree day. I laid on the warm boulders like a snake in a desert at dusk and watched the chipmunks eat my lunch crumbs. Then, the sun went to sleep and the anticipation of the Milky Way show was exciting since I didn’t have the opportunity to photograph the Summer prior. I enjoy so much shooting in solitude and I had this spot all to myself. I was listening to a new playlist that someone dear to me helped collaborate. While waiting for the image to complete; I would dance, shuffling my feet in the dust like Leif Vollebekk in the video Elegy.

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
