The Celebration of
Old Spanish Days
Santa Barbara, California
This book depicts the wonderful local color of Santa Barbara's annual Fiesta celebration. Sanctioned by Old Spanish Days, it features 240 pages, containing approximately 650 photos, shot over eleven years of Fiesta events.
The book is in production now and will ship in July 2013, in time for this year's main Fiesta events.
Please check back here in mid Summer, 2012, for an all-new giclée store.
The Giclee Store features some of our best work, which is hand printed onsite by Mr. Fisher, utilizing the fine-art-quality equipment of our sister company, In Color. Each of these is signed.
Sometime in the mid 90's was the first time I brought my camera to a Fiesta parade, but it was in 2002 that I began to take shooting this monumental event seriously. A couple years later I had the idea of doing a photo book on the subject, and that's when I solicited Old Spanish Days to begin shooting the event professionally.
If you are interested in perusing a selection of our best images (those that have been posted to this website), you can see many of them on my gallery here.

We offer Pro Lab photographic prints through two different providers. These prints are custom-printed on digital photographic systems, suitable for small and medium sizes, and this is where we place photos from some of the events we shoot.
We have two different stores:
Since I was a kid, I've had the privilege of visiting the Aloha state of Hawai'i eight or nine times now. During two of my visits, I spent a significant amount of time photographing the sport of Outrigger Canoeing.
If you're interested in purchasing photographic prints, you can see all those gallery images, plus hundreds more which might not be universally appealing, yet they could be personally desirable, especially to those in the photos. You can find all these on our PhotoShelter store.
If you are interested in large giclée (high-quality, archival artwork) digital prints made by me personally, signed and printed on archival paper or canvas, these are also available on our PhotoShelter store.
I have now made it though editing half of the over two thousand photos I took of the 2011 Queen Lili'uokalani Canoe Race. This is the world's largest long distance outrigger canoe race, held each year in Kona, Hawaii. Approximately 350 images have been posted to my Backprint Store. I'll post the best of those to the Outrigger Canoe section of my gallery soon.
