Mr. Quigley Photography receives two awards

Mr Quigley Photography Awards

This year we were recognized by two different organizations for our photographic work for them over the years. First we have been the Ruger Firearms Company photographer for many years. Our images have been used to show off their fine products in yearly catalogs, trade shows and ads in various shooting magazines.

 Ruger awarded Mr. Quigley Photography with a firearm and the top company executives presented them with a framed certificate at the Prescott AZ plant. We are proud to accept both and have already enjoyed shooting the new firearm. Thank you Ruger!

Also this year SASS, The Single Action Shooting Society, presented our company with another precious award. Below is part of what they said.
 For the last 13 years Mr Quigley Photography has been the official photographer for SASS. Their images have been used to illustrate monthly articles in our magazine as well as books They continue to photograph our shooters at events all over the world. Their images are simply spectacular!

We wanted to also express our appreciation to SASS and the Ruger Firearm Company for recognizing our efforts and contributions and thank both for using our services.

Yosemite National Park in Winter

Recently I covered a quick product photo shoot in California.  After completing the work, I drove the rental car over to Yosemite National Park,  while the roads were open.

                                      A mixture of frozen water.

 I know this is not my typical blog post but several people have asked that I share some of the images I created. Some of the images that follow may be a bit weird and not your typical Yosemite Park photographs.

About 1/2 of the images were created with Panasonic point and shoot cameras.  The others with Canon DSLR's

This was my first time to the park in winter and I didn't know what to expect, except cold weather. And cold it was warming to 24 during the day.

The park was free from the typical crowds and simply dressing for the conditions I found myself comfortable during my two day stay.  I was constantly outside.

One thing to plan for if you go are icy and slippery roads. Snow chains or 4x4 vehicles with snow tires are required. Even with that they still close the roads when bad weather rolls in. So your stay may be extended at times.


I highly recommend Yosemite in the winter now that I have experienced it personally.

The other thing I found helpful if you plan to hike some of the trails, are portable snow cleats that attach to the bottoms of any shoe. These will keep you from slipping on ice.

Coyote, hunting.


Lone tree ekes out a living in the rock covered landscape.

Wherever you go its hard not to find places where a litterbug has not been. 
Its dinner time!

Don't forget to visit the Ansel Adams photographic gallery.

Cold stormy sunset. Brrrr... my fingers hurt from making photographs. 
Time to hike the trail back.
