Well, we made it to Death Valley N.P. and we're in our third week of volunteering. Last week Edwige and I were out shooting for the park and we came across some photographers shooting near Mormon Point. We hopped out of the car and started documenting them figuring they'd make good lifestyle shots (aside from the Ranger Programs and landscape photos we're always looking to photograph people enjoying the park).
After I got a few good shots, Edwige walked over and asked them to sign a release so that the park may possibly publish the shots online or in print. One of the photographer's name rang a bell so we looked him up when we got back to camp. Turns out we were shooting John Shaw and Jack Dykinga! I'm not usually star struck but I've been inspired by the work of these two guys for years. I've admired Jack Dykinga's work in Arizona Highways and John Shaw's work in National Geographic. In a way, it was best I didn't know it at the time or I would have felt a little intimidated :)
