Are my photos for sale?

While all of my photographs are copyrighted, they are available for non-exclusive licensing and I also sell large size prints. Contact me via email at for pricing info.


to my personal photography blog. I specialize in making unique and highly detailed photographs. Notice I said making and not taking. Yes I take photos but a lot of time and work is involved in pushing and punishing the pixels in my images to achieve the look I like.

Please feel free make comments about any of my photos. I enjoy constructive critiques, learning about locations to shoot or photography techniques. Click on the "Share Article" link to share any of my photos via Digg, Facebook, Myspace, etc.

Want to use one of my images in your own blog? No problem, but please make sure it links back to the original image here and do the right thing and give me credit. Don't crop the image, remove the watermarks or claim my work as your own. This has happened more times than I can count so I've had to report copyright violations to ISP's and regrettably the violators blog is usually taken down.

Can't we all just get along?

Entries in Las Vegas (7)


Aureole Las Vegas

Aureole Las Vegas, originally uploaded by big_pixel_pusher.

Stairs leading to the dining room wrap around a 42-foot-high wine tower, built of steel and laminated glass, that holds nearly 10,000 bottles. "Wine Angels" on wires float upward to retreive specific bottles.


Luxor Pool Vertorama

The pool at the Luxor way after closing time. The wind was really blowing those palm trees around. Not the best conditions for shooting HDR's. I love how you can see the top of the pyramid and the light beam in the building on the upper right.


Inside the Pyramid

This is a 12 shot HDR Pano/Vertorama of the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas. A total of 36 exposures make up this combined image. I was thinking that a security guard would tell me I couldn't use my tripod inside the hotel but they never said a word.


Mandalay Bay

Another photo taken from our room. Very early morning shot as I recall.

I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps...

I left the Luxor on my early morning solo photowalk and had just passed thru the Excaliber and was heading for New York, New York when I took this image from the pedestrian bridge.


Bellagio Reflection

Two Bellagio security guards wanted to know why I was taking photos with a tripod at 6:19 am. All I could tell them is I should have been there an hour earlier.

Kathy and I drove out to Las Vegas to attend the Photoshop World conference being held at Madalay Bay. I kept waking up really early so I decided to go on my own photowalk to catch that magic golden hour light. I missed it.
