I looked in the search window to see if one had already been done, but didn't see one.

This guy is a photo-pheenom! And not only does he take amazing photographs (as well as sharing his talents with others, and teaming up with other pheenoms), but he climbs. Hard stuff.

I won't post any of his images here, as I'm not sure what's okay, and what's not okay to repost, but dang...he's got an amazing eye for beauty, composition, lighting, and subject matter.

Here's his site:

I don't know Jerry, other than through ST and FB, but thanks for bringing us along to some of my all time favorite places!

One of the few from the Stupor Torpor quagmire I'd actually like to meet in person. Great photographer!

Yes, Jerry is a great photographer, but he's way more too. He's an up, fun, friendly person, just a pleasure to be around. He's always welcome at our house.

You can always tell it's a Dodrill photo. A master of light. Thanks for the contributions Jerry.

If you get a chance to take a workshop with Dodrill, do it. I took a class from him back in 2008? It was at Sierra Nevada College in Lake Tahoe. I went the first summer it was offered and I'm still thinking back on discussions we had and finding new ways to apply what I learned. (and still using the camera bag I won at a raffle). Will definately go to another when I can. Cheers to Jerry!!!

His images are quite stunning, and he seems like a nice guy too. Good to have him on the forum!

I appreciate that the one time I met him he had lost one approach shoe somewhere on the Hulk. I did not envy him wearing a flip flop on the way out!

In addition to his photography work, he has also helped put up some great routes at our local crag. Here are just a few

Really! You guys are too much! I haven't been lurking here much lately, but Mooser, and all you guys just made my day. Thanks!

(BTW, here's a link to the new photo site I've been putting together.)

See you out there...
