10mm (May 2013)

From the Photographer: Horseshoe bend was a highly anticipated location on my travel bucket list. This grand overlook was my first stop during my cross-country road trip from Arizona to Maryland.

Photography Tips from the Pro’s – Keith Briley


From the Photographer: It was January, 11th, 2014, and both my wife and I had a few more hours to kill.

Stormy Night at Horseshoe Bend

From the Photographer Horseshoe Bend is both awe inspiring and scary at the same time; there is no guard rail along the edge of the thousand foot cliffs leading down to the Colorado River below.

From the Photographer: Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River is one of THE classic southwest photo locations. And in my ignorance, I didn’t even know I was there until I practically fell into it. Early on in my photography career I was driving blindly through northern Arizona on a road trip and had no idea what was where. It wasn’t until I hit the outskirts of Page and saw the … [Read more...]
