This weekend should see the website go live. We know, it has been live for six months, but we think we have it the way we want it to look, along with branding for Western Skies Photography.

Tonight and tomorrow, we will be uploading new pictures from some of our trips. Our goal is to provide between 40 and 100 photos at any time online, so that it does not become too cumbersome.

Steven is now getting ready for his summer photography safari to Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, Little Bighorn Battlefield, Pryor Mountain Horse Range, and Glacier.

In getting prepared for this trip this year, Western Skies Photography has invested in some new gear with the hopes that it will provide better reach and stability for our images. We have purchased the Canon EF 600mm f4.0L IS lens along with a Gitzo 5541LS tripod and a Wimberly Tripod Head. Also, we have invested in Really Right Stuff ballheads and their ArcaSwiss style plates. We also purchased the Canon EF-S 60mm f2.8 Macro Lens. We had seen pictures produced with this lens and we were impressed, even though it was the EF-S lens, but it will save weight and is well matched with the EF-S 55-250mm f5.6 IS lens.

So if you see us in the parks over the next month, feel free to stop and chat. We will be spending most of our time in Yellowstone in the Lamar and Hayden Valleys, looking for bears and wolves. We will only be in Glacier for two full days, 26 and 27 June. The trip to Glacier will be a scouting trip for future projects.

Steven will attempt to provide trip reports here, but he will not have consistent internet access. He will attempt to post abbreviated reports with his telephone, if he finds a good signal.

We hope to see you under the Western Skies.
