Hello one and all,

You are receiving this email because you have bought something from me, thought of buying something from me, stopped by my booth at a show and chatted, or are friends and family. Please let me know if you wish to be removed from this list. Thanks.


I hope this email finds you all well. A number of things going on in the Backcountry offices as of late…

I have been working at Aerolite Meteorites ( quite a bit and having a grand time. Geoff, an accomplished photographer whom I am learning much from, has entrusted me with doing some of the product photography of the meteorites for his website. Check out the ‘new’ sales item page, the majority of the photos were done by me.

Slightly related to that topic…
One of my photos was featured on the rocks from space daily photo. You can see it here at

And…one was used in the Tucson Citizen Newspaper online Logical Lizard blog entry

And… two were used in another Tucson Citizen Newspaper online Logical Lizard blog entry:

The past few weeks I have been participating in a weekly farmers market. If you are in Tucson, come check it out - Fridays from 8AM-1PM on the southwest corner of Broadway and Country Club. With that being said, I won’t be there for the next two weeks. Why you ask? Great question; which brings us up to our next segment of news.

Lisa and I will be traveling to Flagstaff for the Labor Day Art in the Park festival! The big bit of news for this year’s show is that I will actually have a booth of my own. (No longer Lisa’s operations manager) This year’s festival will be taking place Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (the 5th - 7th). So if you are in the area please come by. For those of you in Phoenix; it is a great weekend to get out of the heat…

Upon my return to Tucson, I will be spending the rest of the week in the field as the location photographer for Geoff Notkin while he’s filming the new Discovery Science channel show Meteorite Men (picked up for 6 more episodes, thanks for watching.).

After that I will be returning to the farmer’s market schedule with the addition of the Saturday farmer’s market at St Phillip’s Plaza at River and Campbell. Hope to see you there.

So, new desktop installment for this newsletter: I had a tough time deciding on a photo this time around; so many photos so few newsletters. However, I had such a great response to the horse and dog nose photo (thanks so much for the feedback) I thought I might continue the animal theme. Today you will be getting 2 photos since I couldn’t decide between the two. These little Gamble Quail babies were chasing after Dad and Mom who didn’t have quite as much of a problem jumping over the wall and down to the sidewalk on the other side.

Enjoy and thanks for reading.
