In the recent Winter 2013 edition of my magazine, Insights in Photography, I write about the photographic challenges in the wide open spaces of the Palouse region of eastern Washington. What makes photographing in the Palouse different from other landscapes? To say this area is spacious is an understatement — the vastness can be intimidating. In addition, there are multitudes of textures, colors and patterns creating endless photographic opportunities. Give it a read … I hope you find the tips, techniques and, of course, the photos helpful and inspiring. Enjoy!

I stay in the town of Colfax centrally located with easy access to Steptoe Butte and the rest of the Palouse region.
