All the skills from Brad’s workshops were used to plan and make this capture. Idaho was facing almost total overcast for the May Total Lunar Eclipse -TLE. While anywhere near Boise looked dismal, the far corner of Idaho, near the Tetons, looked to be the best opportunity. PlanIt Pro showed the partially eclipsed moon rising to the left of the Tetons! I settled on some sites 33 miles from the Tetons, with my 500mm lens. Certainly not the capturing we do in workshops, but the real value of the workshops is adapting what we learn to new circumstances! After a 5.5 hour drive, I was rewarded with a spectacular partially eclipsed moon rising to the left of the Tetons. It continued to rise settling in full eclipse directly over the Tetons. Post offered me a chance to composite various stages of the eclipse over the Tetons (I need a follow-up with Brad). Grateful to all the past 10 years with the Alum and Brad. Thank-you all! (shocking – not a fish-eye)

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
