About BoulderCountyPhotographer

James "Bo" Insogna was Born and raised in Pittsburgh PA. He studied with the New York Institute of Photography. He Started his photography career 1984. He opened a studio in Boulder, Colorado downtown on the Boulder mall. Shooting for local newspapers, magazines, Skiing, Bicycling, models portfolios and some commercial work. In 1987 the economy got bad in Boulder so he decided to make a move to Scottsdale Arizona. Once in Arizona, He became a staff photographer for the Phoenician Arabian Horse Magazine doing the covers, inside lay outs and a two page spread called Bo Trek. In the late 1980's - 1990's he was a respected member of the Arabian Horse Community in Arizona, chosen to photograph champions, riders, trainers and owners. From the first Arizona lightning monsoon season, Bo very quickly became a Lightning Storm Chaser. Striking-Photography.com, www.ArizonaLightning.com and aka www.TheLightningMan.com was born. A very fun, exciting and dangerous job! Since 1987 he has spent many years pursuing elusive lightning storms spanning miles of natural desert. It takes great dedication, courage and desire to grip a metal camera upon a metal tripod astride mountain peaks with lightning crashing mere paces away. His prints reflect the courage and passion he feels for his art. He has been featured on television and in print. In 1991 The VVA honored him by choosing his Photograph "Operation Desert Storm" as the official print of the Arizona Desert Storm Memorial Fund. The men and the flag represent the "Operation" and the Victory and Liberation of Kuwait. The Saguaro represents the "Desert" and the men and women who served in the Gulf. The Lightning represents the "Storm" and the Air War with swift, precise strikes. Twenty years after leaving Boulder, Bo decided to relocate his family back in Colorado. He settled in Boulder County.

  1. “One of the few that are left.” A sad statement, but I know saguaros are on the decline, likely due to pollution and development. I’m sure you know more about it but it seems there are fewer every time I visit the SW. Lovely sky and nice composition.

    • Thanks Debi! It is all the building that is going on down there. It is hard to find spots without houses.

      • True. My inlaws used to live in Sun City long ago. The ORIGINAL Sun City. The first time I visited them their neighborhood was on the outer fringe. By the time the moved into assisted living the building was all the way out to Surprise. ………what a … surprise. My understanding is that by law saguaros have to be moved – not destroyed. But I don’t know the ratio of that success. 😦

      • Thanks Debi! yes the Saguaros have to be moved they are protected. But it is joust not the same when they are moved to someones front yard. On the corner of Pinnacle Peak and Scottsdale road NE was like a forest of saguaros. It was incredible. Now a safeway with a few of them left in the parking lot. Oh well that is progress… 😦

      • Ick. Not in my book, but at least they’re still living. That’s why I love the Saguaro National Park – seeing them in the wild surrounded by nothing but mountains and desert is an incredible experience! Happy we share a love of saguaros! …how can one NOT love the saguaro?

      • Desert Giants! Thanks again enjoy your weekend!
