My images have appeared in a few publications over the years. Most recently I’ve written articles featuring my Nightscape photography of the California North Coast for print in the North Coast Journal newspaper and Humboldt Insider magazine.
On the internet one can find my weekly nighttime photo stories, called “Night Light of the North Coast” at Redheaded Blackbelt and “North Coast Night Lights” at the the North Coast Journal (some also end up in the Journal’s print edition), and at the Anderson Valley Advertiser .
Humboldt Insider quarterly travel magazine is the beautiful, all-glossy hot-ticket source for local travel tips, happenings, insights and maps behind the Redwood Curtain on California’s North Coast.
Cover photo and cover story for Humboldt Insider‘s Spring/Summer 2019 issue (link to article), called “Under the Milky Way: Stargazing on the North Coast.” The story includes additional images from the California North Coast’s starry nights.
North Coast Journal and Redheaded Blackbelt
Most, if not all of the photo stories you’ll find on my site, have appeared in the online sites Redheaded Blackbelt and North Coast Journal. The North Coast Journal has included many of the stories in their print edition. Below are a few covers I’ve had for them.
Cover photo for the March 2, 2023 issue of the North Coast Journal. It was the most snow Eureka, a coastal northern California city in Humboldt County, California, had received since 1989. I didn’t write a story for this one.

I had the great honor and pleasure of writing the cover story — and of course shooting the photos — for the first issue of this premier North Coast publication’s 30th year. Read the article here: “North Coast Night Lights:
The skies of Humboldt County“
I picked up a few copies for myself, of course…
“…wanna see my smiling face/On the cover of the Rolling Stone…” (lyrics from Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show).
Cover photo for the 10/17/19 issue of the North Coast Journal. (The historic Arcata Minor Theater during a PG&E PSPS, Public Safety Power Shutoff, on October 9, 2019 in Arcata, California.)
In my own story in this issue, called “The Night the Night Light Went Out” (link to online version) I share images from my tripping around Arcata that night with my son.
Something Completely Different…
For those owners of iPad and parents with kids, I’ve written a children’s story for iPad called Luna Raccoon, a cute little tale about friendship between three furry little critters. It’s accompanied by narration by accomplished Narrator and Actor Ray Porter (his IMDB link), and it is beautifully illustrated by Christiane Gozashti.
