Another Cover Photo!

Oregon Fish & Wildlife Journal is currently using another of my photos for their cover. If you’re interested in getting a copy of the magazine or a subscription, check them out here.


I experienced the most amazing resolution to one of my stories in Wild Women this past weeked.

Cat and I traveled to Chiloquin for a celebration of the first completed semester at the First Nations Institute (branch of Pacific Bible College where I teach).

While there we met Cobby who is a big part of my story. I've added that excerpt from Wild women here.

Cobby is a believer in Christ now the same as me and Cat! Awesome!

(He's the one in the black hat below.)

Cobby's mother, who is one of the tribal elders, was very instrumental in getting the school going and she just completed two college courses! She is an amazing woman. She made every single part of the costume she is wearing in the accompanying photo plus a lot you can't see. She beaded her headdress, her purse, her moccasins . . . all with tiny seadbeads. She beaded a beautiful picture of her mother into her purse after scanning the picture on her computer. That's right! This amazing lady is computer savvy.

Cat and I are planning to attend the Native American Holy Ghost Conference in Medford, Oregon tomorrow evening and perhaps on Sunday evening to photograph Cobby and others as they worship God through Native American dance and music. Join us! See a schedule of events here.

Cobby's family delighted us with awesome Native American worship music during the college celebration. The conference will offer even more! There's nothing cooler!
