About 5 weeks ago Here is my submission for the #PlusOneCollectionIII.  It is a pretty awesome project spearheaded by +Ivan Makarov and +Andy Lee.   If you haven't submitted an image you should do so soon as the window closes on March 17th.  This is a great project that raises funds for those who need it.

About 4 weeks ago "Looking into Yosemite" for #PlusOneCollectionIII

 I came to the location for a landscape shot, but since it was so hazy, I asked my friend Tom to move over to the brink to make this image instead. The silhouette may be small, but it makes the picture.

At this time, I mostly photographed landscapes, but since then I've become interested in how we are part of our world. I started more conceptual series about the National Park, of which this image was a precursor.

For this years +Plus One Collection submission, I have chosen an image from  my home town up in Alaska.

If you have not submitted an images (or images) yet, today is the last day.   You can learn more about the process by checking out http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Volume-III.  +Ivan Makarov has also outlined the steps on this post: https://plus.google.com/+IvanMakarov/posts/c54Y13Ljif2

The books have all been beautiful ... and proceeds from the sale benefit charity (this year's charity is The Samburu Project http://www.thesamburuproject.org).  I hope to see you involved!

About 4 weeks ago So I lagged, and +Ivan Makarov  had to strong arm me to get this year's #PlusOneCollectionIII submission in. Thanks for the reminder Ivan!

So it was a tough one for me to decide. I've spent countless hours so far this year sorting through my work trying to decide on a selection of prints for a printed portfolio. So by the time submissions were being taken, I was kind of burned out. My selection here is for many reason. It was made on a day when I was with a couple of my favorite photographers. Normally, I do not expect much from my work when I am out with such people, the distraction is just too much. Somehow, as the three of us stood and looked over the scene, I managed to expose this scene properly. 

Ehhh... Enough of the stories. I just like this one.

Thanks again +Andy Lee  and +Ivan Makarov  for their dedication to a great project.

About 7 weeks ago Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://plusonecollection.com/

Who can get published? Anyone! We hope to get as many submissions as possible. Due to the volume, we can’t publish them all, but we will publish as many as we can
