For us, it’s mostly about travel. But it’s also about adventure and recording those adventures with pen and pad and, then, with cameras, too. In the course of pursuing stories, at times we’ve found ourselves in the high Arctic; other times, in areas throughout Canada and the Lower 48, often in our national lands, national parks and national historic areas. Sometimes, however, we’ve sought out small towns–even big cities–trying to make sense of all the unfortunate disasters that have so recently occurred

For the most part, our travels now are made from the comfort of an RV, in which we have carved out the requisite amount of working space, both for loading images into our computers, and for producing our stories. Our Airstream is our base and we use it for venturing off, sometimes for days and weeks on end, traveling, then, with backpack, boat, snowmobile, kayak, canoe and bush plane.What we want to do is share some of these outdoor travel adventures, as well as some of the techniques we use as photographers and writers who are on the go. And, of course, let’s not beat around the bush, we want to sell more pictures, more stories, and more books through our web site.You can see more of our work by going to AgPix.com/gildart—or by further diving into the accompanying pages. That will better give you an idea of the types of things we do and that might prompt you to check in here often.

Stay tuned to our blog, we’re just back from Big Bend National Park; from San Antonio with its historic Alamo and European-styled River Walk; and from the Four Corners, where we amassed more photographs, particularly ones relating to the Anasazi. In July, we’ll be going to Nova Scotia and points along the East Coast gathering stories for a number of publications, but mostly for the RV magazines, which we contribute to often. From those points we’ll be adding posts about camera techniques and about some of the people we meet and the places we encounter. We’ll be trying to learn about our incredible national heritage and its diversity of people, and believe we can do that most satisfactorily by exploring our national lands. Perhaps we’ll see you along the way.In the meantime, good shooting, but most of all, safe travels.
