  1. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work with us, it helps to remind us that the world indeed can be beautiful despite all the problems. Have a great New Year’s Eve. Best. BCF

  2. Always enjoy your work throughout the year, Russ. Love the landscapes (makes me want to shoot more of them) but my eyes keep coming back to the interesting Thai Chicken and the Chief of the Jicarilla Apache. So good-

    • Thanks Jason. I actually enjoy documenting culture more, but when you find yourself in Utah for a summer you can’t help but shoot some landscapes. Appreciate the kind words and I look forward to seeing what comes out of the camera in 2014 myself.

  3. you are good for photography in general because you make getting great pictures look so easy. to get in the places to get those shots is anything but easy. your secret is you love all those people and their strange cultures. Great job!

  4. superbs selection of works, very impressive landscape images, amazing sense of the moment. If You find free time You can check my works as well. Regards from Poland ,
