Hello, I am not much of a writer. It seems my keyboard is missing some letters when I type.  So this blog will be about Images in Boulder County and what I am shooting at the time.

Here is my Bio

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, http://www.ArizonaLightning.com and aka http://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. Lovin Life in Boulder County!
