Music in Teton Valley
This is the first book I created using the Book module of Adobe Lightroom. There was a significant discount for the first book and I decided to give it a go.

Folks in Teton Valley really enjoy their music and the various bands booked to perform offer an exposure to a wide variety of music genres and tastes.

I am able to enjoy approximately 80 hours of live music each summer in Teton Valley Idaho. With many folks in attendance, I refer to these concerts as "a target rich environment".

The book contains photos of both artists and spectators. I hope this book provides some measure of the enjoyment folks get from attending these events.

Landscapes by Rick Budde

Being pleased with the "Music in Teton Valley" book, I decided that I would do a coffee table type book of my landscape photos.

This book has been deleted from the Blurb site so I don't have an electronic version to view here.
Alli Alberts

Alli is one of the former Wash U volleyball players with whom I have remained friends, along with her family, after her graduation.

As a graduation present, I created a book for her which contained photos from her days at Wash U as well as some from a visit she and her family made to my Driggs home.

Note: I have not been able to upload the file to my web site so I don't have an electronic version to view here.

Washington University Volleyball - 2015 Season

At the end of each volleyball season, I have given a DVD with photos from the season to the players and their mothers.

For the 2015 season, I decided to create a Spark presentation as well. I am very pleased with the way it turned out.


Note: the Spark app is free to use and Adobe hosts the resultant Spark for free as well.
